Injury roundup: Two RBs banged up
By Kieran Darcy
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Jets had several players go down with injuries against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, including two of their top three running backs.
Starter Bilal Powell and Mike Goodson exited the game -- Powell with a shoulder injury, Goodson with a knee injury. Coach Rex Ryan did not have updates on any of his injured players after the game.
Powell did speak to reporters, and insisted he is not injured. "I just took a little hit, came out and took a breather," Powell said. "Came in and everything is good."
Goodson may be out for a while -- he had to be helped off the field after going down in the fourth quarter. UPDATE: Goodson is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday for the potentially serious knee injury, according to a source.
Wide receiver Clyde Gates, who had a team-high five catches for 36 yards, injured his shoulder and had his arm in a sling after the game.
Cornerback Kyle Wilson left with a head injury, and may have a concussion.
Wide receiver Stephen Hill took a big shot from Steelers safety Troy Polamalu late in the first half, but played in the second half.
"I just got the wind knocked out of me," Hill said afterward.
