Robertson injury serious?

The Jets added defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson to the injury list on Sunday.

He is listed as probable with a knee injury. However, you have to wonder if this injury is more serious than a "probable" listing. If this injury was nothing, they probably wouldn't have to add him to the list. The only reason coaches usually add a player this late in the week is to protect themselves from a fine in case the player can't play. When Bill Parcells was coaching the Jets, center Roger Duffy was hurt in a practice late in the week, but the coach didn't put him on the list. Duffy ended up not playing, and Parcells was fined by the league after a writer complained. If Robertson can't play, James Reed would probably start in his place.
