Jets Cromartie has bruised lungs

By Marc A. Greenberg

As if things couldn’t get worse for Antonio Cromartie, they have.

The New York Jets CB, after committing four penalties and losing a fumble on a kickoff which resulted in an Oakland Raiders TD, left yesterdays 34-24 Jets loss in the 4th quarter with a rib injury.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, it is actually a bruised lung.  Cromartie went to an Oakland-area medical center, but returned to the team.

His status for next week’s game at Baltimore is uncertain.
