New Story: Westhoff Divulges Details from Leg Injury
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Everyone knows Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff is one tough son of a gun; cancer survivor, specials teams innovator, master talent evaluator, cursing enthusiast. Yesterday at the team's check-in day on the SUNY Cortland campus, however, his tough guy reputation grew a little bigger.
For Westhoff, it was his first public appearance with the team since recovering from a gruesome knee injury in late May. He missed the majority of the Jets' rookie and mini-camps after surgery on his left leg -- the same leg that a titanium prosthesis was placed in 2008.
