FLORHAM PARK, N.J -- Nickleback Drew Coleman suffered a knee injury on the last drill of yesterday's Jets practice. Jets coach Rex Ryan said he didn't know the extent of the injury, and whether or not he would be able to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots.

"We don't know anything right now," Ryan said. "He was just doing a drill and kind of went on the ground or something."

Defensive coordintator Mike Pettine said the Jets would likely go with a committee at the position if Coleman couldn't play.

The Jets also suffered a significant practice injury to a defensive back the last time the two teams met, when Jim Leonhard went down before the Jets-Patriots game in New England
