Joe McKnight May Have Serious Head Injury


This may be a really serious situation for Joe McKnight and the Jets.

Joe attempted to return to camp today, but had continuous problems with hydration. He was observed trying to run on the field, and not being able to do so without taking a knee. Trainers came out to give him water and he was able to get up.

According to onlookers, McKnight is clearly not right. He dropped a pass, and was down on the field again. He appeared woozy and was having hydration problems. He again was not able to make it through practice.

This could be a serious situation. It’s never a good sign when guys are woozy, and can’t seem to stay hydrated. It’s hard to know what might be wrong with him, it could be any number of things. I think that one thing we can all agree upon is that Joe McKnight should not be on the field right now.

Could this affect his ability to make the final 53? Sure it could, but it doesn’t matter. He might be screwing up his life trying to be in there.

    I hope he gets better but he really pissed me off with that interview and reminded me of Holmes 2.0 Unfortunately for Joe, he’s most likely going to be cut.

      There is a definite strong possibility of that.

    I really think we have to trust the trainers and medical staff on this one. If they felt there was any real danger to his health he would NOT be out on the field.

      I feel the same…I don’t want to doubt them but this just seems really weird, don’t you think? Something must be wrong.
