Shocking news - Jones might play Friday

Thomas Jones suffered a calf injury during Sunday's practice. He hasn't practiced since. However, in a surprising development, Eric Mangini told WFAN that the tailback might play Friday against Minnesota.

Mangini told WFAN's Mike Francesa that Jones is day-to-day, and that he hasn't ruled out using the runner on Friday.

So let's get this straight. The team's franchise back hurts his calf on Sunday, and the coach is considering playing him Friday against the NFL's top run defense from 2006 in the second preseason game.

Honestly, it would be shocking if Jones played on Friday. What's going on is that the coach is playing semantics games with the media regarding injuries -- a topic he doesn't like talking about.
