FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Antonio Cromartie returned to the practice field Thursday and was a full participant, just four days after suffering a bruised lung and ribs in the team's loss at Oakland.
"I feel good now, but after the game, I felt like a fish out of water," Cromartie said. "I mean, I really couldn't breathe. Right now, I'm feeling good. I feel 100 percent. I've got a little soreness here and there, but that's about it.
Center Nick Mangold was also in full uniform for the first time since suffering a high right ankle sprain against Jacksonville two weeks ago, but didn't participate in team drills. He missed last Sunday's game -- the first of his NFL career -- because of the injury and could be a game-time decision Sunday in Baltimore.
According to the New York Post, Cromartie said he injured his ribs because he was afraid of being fined while tackling Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.
"I tried to change the way I hit him because I didn't want to get a fine," he said. "At the last second, I put my shoulder in too much and went from there."
"He had one big game," Cromartie said. "That's it. He has five catches for his whole career."
Ryan wasn't too impressed with Smith either when asked about him on Wednesday.
"He's a fast guy, and all that kind of stuff, but I don't think he'll have equal success this week," Ryan said. "If he does, then I'm just going to stay in Baltimore."
