Chrebet update

Jets coach Herman Edwards confirmed on Monday that wide receiver Wayne Chrebet suffered a mild concussion in the Jets game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.<p>

While a mild concussion isn't a big deal for most players, it's a disconcerting injury for Chrebet, whose season ended in 2003 due to post-concussion syndrome.

Edwards is downplaying the injury and said on Monday that Chrebet will practice on Wednesday, and should be able to play on Saturday in the Jets playoff game against San Diego.

Jets GM Terry Bradway was asked about the injury after the game, and his answer was a little more ominous.

"We won't know for a while," Bradway said about how serious Chrebet's injury is.

Jets publicist Ron Colangelo thinks Chrebet should be able to get through this latest setback.

"He should be O.K," said Colangelo after the game.

In other injury news, the Jets expect defensive end John Abraham back for the Chargers game. Abraham, who has missed the last month with a knee injury, is listed as probable. The Jets struggling secondary could use the added pass rush that Abraham should provide.

Also on Monday, Edwards admitted that quarterback Chad Pennington's rotator cuff injury is having a negative impact on the velocity of his throws.
