Pool sits out
Florham Park, NJ — This Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots is most likely going to be the season changer for either team. The Jets need this win in order to put themselves in a great position for the division and if so, home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Jets defense looked fantastic last week against the Buffalo Bills and this week they need to show up for an encore.
Unfortunately when the wagon is rolling, someone always has to throw a wrench in between the spokes and the spoke that got hit this week is S Brodney Pool. Today he sat out of practice once again and right now nobody really knows to what extent of time that he could possibly be out, if out at all. Pool is hopeful about the situation.
“I hope I can play but it’s just going to come down to how I’m feeling and what they think in the training room.” Pool said.
The trainers and Pool are calling the injury a second degree sprain of his MCL. He seems positive on some type of return but realizes he has to take it day by day.
“It’s an MCL, so you know, guys usually come back pretty fast from that but I finished the last game so there is hope there. I’m just going to stay in the training room and see what I can do.” Pool said.
Pool is wearing a specially made brace for this injury but still feels pain when he moves around but is still not giving up on Sunday’s game.
“I’m not counting myself out and coach isn’t counting me out. I’m just going to do what I can.” Pool said.
