Jets corner back, Antonio Cromartie, has been playing through an injury it seems, and it was evident last week to Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace.

According to ESPN, Cromartie spoke about last week.

“It just changed the way I tried to play,” Cromartie said. If you watched the film
I wasn’t in a lot of press coverage at all. Just trying to get back. Last week I didn’t really practice at all. More mentally than physically, trying to get myself back into it. This week I practiced a lot more and feel a lot more comfortable.”

But the corner back is optimistic about next week’s outlook for the Jets, as they are going to be facing a young Oakland Raiders team.

“We’re playing against a young quarterback,” Cromartie said. “I think our defense has done fairly well against young quarterbacks. It’s just a point of the schemes that we run and just a point of us containing the run, doing the things that we need to try and do. And on the back end, just going (and) attacking the ball when the ball’s in the air and just competing up for the ball.”

Will the Jets be able to get a victory against Oakland, or will Matt McGloin and the rest of the Raiders get the best of Gang Green?
