New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie was in attendance at practice on Thursday, but he was without pads and did not participate in position drills due to a sprained knee.

Cromartie has said that he won't return until he is 100-percent healthy, citing his decision to play through injury in 2013. At this point, it would be a surprise to see Cromartie on the field against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.

Fortunately, the Jets have depth at cornerback and should be able to overcome Cromartie's absence. And the fact that Cromartie will return this season at all is a huge bonus after the injury was initially thought to be a torn ACL.
