New York Jets RB/KR Joe McKnight (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, McKnight did not practice on Friday, though this clashes with a Newark Star-Ledger report that McKnight joined the RBs in position drills and was running without a limp.
In any case, coach Rex Ryan confirmed that McKnight will be a game time decision. He suffered a high ankle sprain against the Colts in Week 6.
Fantasy Impact: McKnight was expected to miss several games, so it's kind of a shock that he's being considered to play at all, and may help explain the conflicting reports.
McKnight isn't much of a fantasy option at RB, but his kick return skills are valuable to New York D/ST owners. With Bilal Powell expected to miss the game, McKnight may be in line for more carries if he's active.
