Pennington claims Mortensen story wrong

On ESPN this morning, Chris Mortensen reported the Chad Pennington was told by Eric Mangini he was on a short-leash this week. Pennington says the story is untrue.

"I was never told I was on a short leash," said Pennington after the Jets 38-31 loss to Cincinnati. "That doesn't sound like Coach Mangini. I was never told I was on a short leash. Nothing was ever said."
