And here is the answer. Drum roll please.
"It's exactly the same," said Mangini. "I appreciate you asking."
There you have it.
Yes, it is exactly the same. The only way that Kellen Clemens plays this Sunday with rib and shoulder injuries, is if he finds a good faith healer.
The Jets have Clemens listed as "questionable," which means there is a 50-50 chance he is going to play. Don't read too much into this. The Jets, like the Patriots, don't believe in the "doubtful" and "out" categories.
Expect Chad Pennington to start for the Jets in Nashville.
I appreciate you asking.
