Joe McKnight fails Jets' physical

Posted on: July 29, 2010 11:12 pm
Good news, Jets fans. Since HBO apparently couldn't fit in any more drama out of Jets camp for "Hard Knocks," they've decided to have Joe McKnight provide some comic relief.

Either that, or he's horribly out of shape. Because, according to Rapid Reporter Lisa Zimmerman, McKnight failed his physical today.

It's the next step in a bit of a nightmare off/pre-season for McKnight, who spent most of rookie camp vomiting and cramping up . (Aside: Is it just me or is 100x more noticeable when a former USC player does something that's the opposite of "good" these days?)

The Jets can't be too pleased either. Shonn Greene is great, but the probably wouldn't have drafted McKnight if they were completely confident in LaDainian Tomlinson's ability to back him up.

Plus, having a fourth-round draft pick start out like this can't be entirely too pleasing to those that invested in him.

I still don't see where this confidence in Shonn Greene comes from.  A decent run in the playoffs with arguably the best O-line in football, but still a small sample size.

LT is slowing down, but he still had 12 tds last year with a much worse line.  Wouldn't surprise me if he ends up their primary back by the end of the season, and McKnight's an afterthought.

Well that can't be right. Mike Tannenbaum is the best GM in football, he'd surely know better then to get him.

Maybe he had too much Kool-Aid.
