Antonio Cromartie suffers knee injury in Jets' win

The Jets' rebuilt secondary already has been compromised.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie was carted off the field during the second quarter of the Jets' 31-10 win over the Cleveland Browns with a potentially serious knee injury.

Cromartie suffered the non-contact injury while in coverage on a Browns pass play. Cromartie was in immediate pain and was quickly surrounded by medical personnel and teammates while down on the turf. CBS cameras later showed Cromartie with a towel draped over his head as he was carted to the locker room for tests.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Cromartie likely has damage to multiple ligaments and is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday.

If Cromartie faces a lengthy absence, the Jets will take a serious hit to a secondary that was supposed to go from weakness to strength after the signings of Cromartie, Darrelle Revis and Buster Skrine in the offseason.

Expect Skrine to take over as New York's No. 2 corner if Cromartie exits the picture.
