John Conner Injury: Jets Fullback Goes Down With Leg Injury

New York Jets starting fullback John Conner went down with what appeared to be a right knee injury with about nine minutes left in the third quarter. Conner, the only fullback on the team's active roster, was clutching his right knee and still on the ground when the CBS feed went to commercial, and there was no sign of him on the field when the commercials ended, nor any mention of him on the telecast.

Behind Conner, who provides little to no usage as a runner or receiver out of the backfield, Shonn Greene, who left briefly with a head injury himself before returning for the second half, and Bilal Powell, who played in Greene's place, have combined for 54 yards rushing on 17 carries. Conner has seen his appearances diminish this year under new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, but the Jets will still miss him if he is out for extended time.
