The immediate diagnosis was a sprained Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL). Coach Herm Edwards addressed the media and said that Abraham will have an MRI exam on Monday morning. Though he would not speculate as to how long Abraham will be out, most MCL sprains keep a player out for 4-6 weeks…RB-KR Chad Morton had a terrific scrimmage this afternoon, returning a kick off 90-yards for a touchdown. After catching the kickoff, Morton called for a left wedge formation and had great blocking all the way down the sideline…LB Sam Cowart participated in running drills this afternoon, but no full-contact drills…S Jon McGraw participated in practice this afternoon, after getting his thighs worked on yesterday…CB Aaron Beasley participated in non-contact drills this afternoon. He hyper extended his left knee in the morning session. Beasley continues to enjoy playing for Herm Edwards, and spoke to the media about the difference between Edwards and his former coach Tom Coughlin. "I feel better with the way Herm's approach is. It's more of a hands-on teaching, instead of yelling and screaming."…The Jets really like their second-string place kicker Danny Boyd…QB Vinny Testaverde did not participate in the afternoon scrimmage…Rookie free agent WR Kory Bailey is having a good spring, as he competes for the 5th wide receiver spot. Bailey was recommended to Herm Edwards by John Bunting, a former teammate of his with the Philadelphia Eagles.
