Joe McKnight labors to get to practice, then is shaken up

Joe McKnight AP

Jets running back Joe McKnight appears to have had a tough Monday morning.

First, on his walk to practice, he paused three different times, dropping to a knee on multiple occasions, per Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. On the final stop, he had some water as a trainer attended to him. McKnight was then able to make it out to practice, Walder said.

Later, during practice, McKnight was shaken up in a drill and had to leave the field, per Manish Mehta of the Daily News, McKnight, per Mehta, appeared “woozy” and was “barely able to walk off the field with trainers.”

Much has been made about McKnight’s rather drama-filled training camp, which has included a failed conditioning test, an arrest for unpaid traffic fines and a mysterious head injury. He’s competing for a reserve role in the Jets’ backfield.

    Unfortunately for Jets fans, there is no positive news when it comes to the 2013 NY Jets. Eight more months until the NFL Draft !

    Don’t anybody ask Rexy about JM though cause he’ll probably state that he doesn’t watch practices, he’ll have to look at the film.

    Sounds like what his head coach goes thru every day heading to the field.

    Dropping to his kneews 3 times before he even got to the field? Sounds like the league investigators will be all over this.

    Went to a knee 3 times before practice and he was actually allowed to practice? Huh?!

    If it’s of his own doing he should never have made it to the field let alone get a rep.

    If he’s injured that much he never should have made it to the field…let alone get a rep.

    How does that happen in the hyper sensitive NFL? Let alone ever!?

    Joe McKnight has a “Mysterious head injury” . An MRI and X-rays revealed nothing.
