LaDainian Tomlinson Injury Update: Tomlinson (Knee) Suffers Setback In Practice, According To Report

New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson (knee injury) did not participate in the 30-minute portion of Tuesday's practice open to the media, and Adam Schefter is reporting that Tomlinson suffered a setback.

Coach Rex Ryan said he was hopeful on Monday after the trainers told him Tomlinson would be okay, but Schefter reports that the Jets are no longer optimistic Tomlinson will play Thursday against the Denver Broncos.

Tomlinson suffered what is reported to be an MCL sprain during his final carry on Sunday against the New England Patriots, when the running back was tackled by New England's Julian Edelman. He limped off the field and wore a knee wrap after the game.

Wide receivers Jeremy Kerley (knee) and Patrick Turner (kidney) and safety Brodney Pool (knee) also did not participate during the media portion of practice. Pool missed the New England game and did not know his status for Thursday, but said Monday he is making improvements.
