LaDainian Tomlinson out Thursday at Denver

LaDainian Tomlinson, Gary Guyton AP

If the New York Jets are going to win in Denver on Thursday night, they’ll have to do it without LaDainian Tomlinson.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Tomlinson, who suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee on Sunday, won’t play against the Broncos.

In Tomlinson’s absence, rookie running back Bilal Powell will be active for the first time. The Jets took Powell out of Louisville in the fourth round of this year’s NFL draft. Starter Shonn Greene will likely see an increased workload.

Tomlinson is second on the Jets in rushing, with 46 carries for 167 yards this season, and fourth on the Jets in receiving, with 25 catches for 312 yards.

    With 3.6 yards per carry, it can’t hurt to get the rookie some reps. After all, LT might not even be back next year.

    Tomlinson is a better passer than Tebow.

    BTW, Tomlinson is also a better passer than Dirty Sanchez

    No LT slide in Denver?

    Tebow all day, what is he going to complete 3 passes this week?

  12. chocolatebaconbutter says: Nov 15, 2011 4:02 PM

    LT is a better passer than Tebow? Ok, but Tebow is a better RB than Tomlinson.

  13. klastima99 says: Nov 15, 2011 4:22 PM

    Tebow running/passing > Sanchez/Greene not so dynamic pass/run duo

    Bilal Powell is about to shine. He can’t do any worse than Greene and Tomlinson.

    There’s only one “LT” and it isn’t LaDainian Tomlinson.

    And he was hurt by a sub wide out our “mini Welker” Julian Edelman who was in on defense at the end of the game who unlike Ladainian is a true team player!
