Practice report: Cromartie runs
By Jane McManus
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- With Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace fresh off a 127-yard performance, the health of Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is in sharp focus.
He didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday with a hip injury, but Cromartie was on the field Friday in a uniform and helmet. He was able to run as he went through positional drills with the defensive backs. He didn't appear too hampered by the recurring hip injury that has bothered him all season.
When team drills began however, Cromartie moved over to the stationary bike.
Jets coach Rex Ryan has said Cromartie's availability for the Miami game could be a game-time decision.
Safety Antonio Allen was missing from the portion of practice that reporters are allowed to watch. Allen has not been on the injury report this week.
Nick Mangold (wrist) was limited both days and appeared to take snaps at center Friday. Caleb Schlauderaff had been doing that earlier in the week. Mangold said Wednesday that he would play and said the wrist injury is just cumulative wear and tear.
Punter Ryan Quigley also spent time on the stationary bike, but to be fair, it was a pretty cold day and the Jets practiced outside. Jeremy Kerley (elbow) was out there with the wide receivers. The wide receiver has been limited all week after missing the last two games.
