      FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – New York Jets backup cornerback Drew
Coleman, the team's nickel back and a key special teams player, has
injured a knee late in practice and his status for the playoff game
at New England is uncertain.
      Coach Rex Ryan says Thursday that Coleman was hurt at the end of
the team's last drill of practice. Neither Ryan nor defensive
coordinator Mike Pettine were sure of the extent of the injury or
if it would prevent Coleman from playing against the Patriots on
Sunday.
      If Coleman can't play, rookie Kyle Wilson would likely be the
main replacement at nickel back, although Pettine said it could be
a committee of players in the role.
      Wide receiver-kick returner Brad Smith (groin) is limited and
his status is also uncertain.
