Injury report: No Mo, no Braylon
By Rich Cimini
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quarterback Greg McElroy downplayed his abdominal injury, calling it a mild strain. He said he took every rep Wednesday in practice.
Muhammad Wilkerson, Dustin Keller and Ellis Lankster worked on the side during the early portion of practice, jogging lightly. Keller (sprained ankle) hasn't practiced in three weeks, so it's hard to imagine him being ready to play Sunday. Wilkerson and Lankster are dealing with concussions, so they must pass NFL-mandated tests before being cleared. Braylon Edwards, who aggravated his knee injury, didn't practice; initially, he was slated to be limited. Maybe the trainers backed him off because of the cold and snowy weather at practice.
