The New York Jets received some great news on Monday following Antonio Cromartie's MRI. It was first believed that Cromartie suffered a torn ACL, but the MRI confirmed it was just a knee sprain and is considered week-to-week.

Based on the way Cromartie reacted on the field and after being taken to the locker room, the knee injury appeared to be serious -- and it likely could have been.

Typically, when a player goes down with a non-contact knee injury, it's a torn ligament. Cromartie and the Jets dodged a bullet with the diagnosis being just a sprained knee. He has not been ruled out for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Colts on Monday night.
