LaDainian Tomlinson Injury Update: Sprained MCL Threatens To Keep Tomlinson Out Against Denver Broncos

New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson suffered an MCL sprain against the New England Patriots Sunday night, and the team is unsure whether he will be available Thursday against the Denver Broncos.

Tomlinson was injured with less than two minutes remaining in New York's 37-17 loss on Sunday, after a hit by New England's Julian Edelman awkwardly bent Tomlinson's leg. After limping off the field, Tomlinson wore a leg wrap in the locker room.

After the game, Tomlinson told reporters his status for Thursday was unsure.

"Yeah, my leg just got hit low,":Tomlinson said. "And I felt my leg. And that's all I can pretty much say right now. ... I'll get some more tests tomorrow and we'll go from there. I'm sure coach will give you an update as we get a little later in the week."

"I won't even speculate yet, " Tomlinson said when asked about his status for Thursday. " I can't do it. We'll see what happens."    

Tomlinson has rushed for 167 yards and one touchdown this season. He has also caught 25 catches for 312 yards and another touchdown.
