New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is expected to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers even though he is listed as questionable with a knee injury, according to ESPN.
Cromartie did not practice Friday, a day after hyperextending a knee. Coach Rex Ryan said Cromartie's playing status would be a game-time decision.
The injury occured during a portion of Thursday's practice not viewed by the media. Cromartie said it was a non-contact injury. Ryan said the team was initially concerned that the injury was serious but an MRI later revealed only a hyperextension.
Cromartie, a two-time Pro Bowler -- including last season -- has not missed a game due to injury in three-plus seasons with the Jets.
