Jets wideout Brandon Marshall: “Don’t rule me out until Sunday”

Brandon Marshall wasn’t on the practice field Monday, but he said after practice he still hopes to be on the field this week, after suffering an MCL injury against the Jets.

“The school I come from is, don’t rule me out until Sunday. I need all the way up until pregame warmup to see if I’m good to go,” Marshall said, via Daniel Popper of the New York Daily News. “Right now, I feel stable. I feel good. And I’m going to work my tail off to get out there and be out there with the guys.”

Marshall said he didn’t have an MRI and that “structurally, we feel like I’m OK.” He was walking without a limp Monday, and Jets coach Todd Bowles said he’d have a better idea of where his star receiver stood when Wednesday’s injury report came out.

But he also admitted he feared it was far worse last week, and that he was “blessed” to be able to play after last week’s awkward fall, which saw his left leg dragged underneath him.

“I felt my knee and my leg just twisted in so many different areas and different ways. So I not only thought my knee was messed up, but I thought my foot and everything was pretty much gone,” Marshall said.

It looked that way too, but for the moment, he’s holding out hope.

    I like how you now have to call him ‘wideout’ Brandon Marshall to differentiate him from that anti-America loser that plays out west.

    I’m sure Wideout Brandon Marshall is just thrilled about that.

    Calling him ‘wideout Brandon Marshall’ is really a heads-up to some PFT posters. We’ve seen them confuse the two in the last week or so. Along those lines, congratulations to Abe Lincoln and John F. Kennedys offspring Lincoln Kennedy on a great career!

    If the Chiefs play like they did in Houston, the Jets won’t need him to win.

    His leg is more misdirected than Aaron Rodgers lazy eye.

    Get well wideout BM. The Jets are going to need you.
