Ainge has cast removed from broken finger

Eric Ainge had the cast removed from the broken pinky on his throwing hand. The announcement was made by Newsday's Erik Boland.

"Quarterback Erik Ainge appears to be better as he wasn't wearing the soft cast we saw him with during the OTAs and minicamp," wrote Boland.

Then Boland did what a journalist should do, and asked Ainge how his pinky is doing.

Ainge didn't answer, because Jets players are told not to talk about injuries.

But that doesn't mean journalists should stop asking.
