Report: Jets veteran LB Taylor to have MRI on hurt elbow

Jets linebacker Jason Taylor will have an MRI exam on his left elbow, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, citing a source.

"Taylor is going to have MRI today on what appears to be a hyperextended left elbow," Mehta wrote on his Twitter page.

Taylor suffered the injury during the second half of the Jets' 28-14 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday, but he came back in the game. He then reinjured the elbow when he sacked quarterback Tom Brady and forced a fumble on the Patriots' last offensive play.

Taylor's left arm was wrapped in ice after the game. He hopes to play against his former team next Sunday night, when the Jets visit the Miami Dolphins.

"It's just an elbow," Taylor said Sunday. "I'm not sure what's wrong with it. It's a little sore. It'll feel good when it stops hurting."

Taylor, 36, is in his 14th NFL season. He has 10 tackles and one sack with the Jets this season.
