Injury report: Rex says Richardson will play
By Jane McManus
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – The Jets are healthy, for the most part. With just two weeks to go in the season, though, defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson has been listed on the injury report with his wrist banged up.
“It’s not broken,” coach Rex Ryan said. “Like I said, it’s hard to describe, but defensive linemen go through these things. Their hands, wrists, thumbs, they’re always beat up and I think that’s really what it is. So, he’s got a finger and a wrist and like I said before, even yesterday, I think when you really look at our guys, all the defensive linemen have something. That’s just part of being a defensive lineman, but nothing that’s going to keep him out.”
So that clears it up. As for the rest of the injury report:
