NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting that Chad Pennington could miss Sunday's game at Baltimore, after suffering an ankle injury in the team's loss to New England. Pennington is considered week-to-week.
Pennington was hit by Patriots defensive end Jarvis Green in the third quarter. Pennington was slow to get up and was in obvious pain before standing up, then collapsing to the turf after taking a few steps. Pennington eventually hopped on his left leg to the sideline.
"I've never had a lower leg injury before," Pennington said. "I'm not going to lay there, I'll tell you that."
Pennington flung his helmet to the ground as he hopped over to the bench, where he was surrounded by team trainers. Kellen Clemens replaced him, but Pennington came back to start the Jets' next series with his right ankle heavily wrapped. He led the team on a scoring drive capped by Coles' 1-yard touchdown catch.
In the fourth quarter, Clemens again replaced Pennington, who decided it wasn't worth it to risk further injury. Pennington, 16-of-21 for 167 yards and the two touchdown passes to Coles, was uncertain how serious the injury is.
