---Original Text---

Antonio Cromartie of the New York Jets left Sunday afternoon's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with what appeared to be a concussion.

From Brian Costello of the New York Post:

While it remains to be seen if Cromartie in fact suffered a concussion and what the severity of the injury is, losing him for any duration of time would be a major blow to the Jets.

Remember, the team already lost top corner Darrelle Revis for the season. Trying to survive without both of its top corners would be a tall task for New York.

Now, you might be thinking that its a moot point since the Jets have been so dysfunctional this season and won't be a playoff team. But believe it or not, this team can still make the playoffs.

Crazy, I know.

At 6-7, the Jets can easily finish 9-7 with games remaining against the Tennessee TitansSan Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills. And in the AFC, 9-7 will probably be good enough for that last playoff spot. 

The Jets are currently chasing the 7-6 Steelers and 7-6 Bengals, and those teams still have to play one another. The Steelers also face the Cowboys down the stretch, while the Bengals get the Ravens.

All of this means losing Cromartie for any duration of time is a major loss for a team that shockingly still has a shot at the postseason. 

On the year, Cromartie has 27 tackles, three interceptions, 11 passes defended and one defensive touchdown. He's clearly the team's top cover corner and a vital part of a defense that has played well since getting smacked around by the New England Patriots in Week 12, 49-19.

Keep it here as more information becomes available on Cromartie's injury status.
