Offensive lineman Rob Turner, carted off the field in the first quarter of Monday night's loss with an ankle injury, will have an MRI exam Tuesday to determine the severity.
I suppose the good news is that it is not a knee problem, which was what I assumed when I saw his leg twist awkwardly. I do not want to oversell what Turner does because he is a backup at the end of the day. He does see time as an extra blocker when the Jets go big, though. In addition, while he is not a Pro Bowler, he is adequate. That makes him a lot better than pretty much any backup lineman we saw from the Jets last night.think of how many shots Greg McElroy took in that game.
