Thomas Jones Sits Out Practice; Will Play Sunday

Running back Thomas Jones did not practice, but is expected to play at San Diego in the AFC divisional round playoff game.

Coach Rex Ryan said Jones was held out of practice Wednesday, as he has for the past few weeks, to give the NFL’s third-leading rusher a break. Fullback Tony Richardson was also given the day off.

Ryan said Jones was listed on the injury report with a knee injury, but added he could’ve practiced fully. Ryan said Jones has a bruised knee and there are “no problems at all with him.”

Jones rushed for a career-high 1,402 yards and a franchise-record 14 touchdowns in the regular season.

Cornerback Donald Strickland (quadriceps) was a full participant after missing the last two games.

    Hey there, thought you might enjoy my breakdown of the Jets-Chargers game this weekend. I’m a blogger in Pittsburgh and am picking the Jets and everyone thinks I’m nuts. I stand by my logic though and thought you and your readers might enjoy the reasons why the Jets will win that I offer up.
