LaDanian Tomlinson Unlikely To Play With Left Knee Injury

New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson missed all of this week's practices and is listed as "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Tomlinson has not practiced in nearly two weeks since suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee. The 32-year-old has reportedly suffered setbacks in his recovery from a knee injury, making it unlikely that he'll play on Sunday.

"He'd do it," Ryan told The Star-Ledger of Tomlinson's status for Sunday. " 'Oh yeah, I'll go,' but what are we going to get? What's going to happen to him if we play him? That's the balancing act there. We absolutely have to win, but we have to win the rest of them, too. That's where I'm at right now. If I was a betting man — like right now, if we had to play tomorrow, I don't think he plays."

Without Tomlinson, and an injured Shonn Greene, running back Joe McKnight had 16 carries for 59 yards in a Week 11 loss to the Denver Broncos.
