There's a chance the Jets will be down two cornerbacks when they face Giants playmaker Odell Beckham Jr.
Marcus Williams, who started in place of the injured Darrelle Revis on Sunday, suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in one of his knees during the Jets' 38-20 win over the Dolphins.
Williams, who suffered the injury after making his fifth interception of the season, is "day-to-day," coach Todd Bowles said on a conference call Monday. That means he could miss the game against the Giants (5-6).
It's also possible the Jets (6-5) again will be without Revis, their star cornerback. He suffered a concussion in their Week 11 loss in Houston and was unable to practice last week. Revis still is in the concussion protocol and has made "slight progress," Bowles said, but it's unclear if he'll be able to suit up this week.
Bowles also said linebacker Calvin Pace (abdominal strain) is day-to-day.
Milestone for Fitz
Ryan Fitzpatrick had lost track, but his father was there to remind him about the 100th start of his 11-season NFL career.
The quarterback said his dad sent him this text message before Sunday's game: " 'Congrats on 100 today. Let's go get 'em.' Something like that. His text just made me aware that this was No. 100."
The 11-year veteran threw four touchdown passes in the rout of the Dolphins, and Fitzpatrick was intent on keeping the game ball for his trophy case.
"That's pretty significant to me," he said of the milestone. "Being a seventh-round pick, being a guy that wasn't really recruited. It's been a pretty cool ride."
The Jets came to the defense of safety Calvin Pryor, whom Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill called "classless'' for celebrating a hard hit on receiver Rishard Matthews.
"We were celebrating as a team, and as a unit, what kind of hit it was," cornerback Antonio Cromartie said. "We don't wish any injury on anybody."
According to an NFL.com report, Matthews suffered fractured ribs.
