New York Jets fans worst nightmares could be answered today, as Antonio Cromartie goes for an MRI scan on his knee after going down injured yesterday against the Cleveland Browns.

The cornerback went to ground yesterday after his knee buckled and twisted while he was attempting to cover a receiver. It didn't look good as he had to be taken back to the locker rooms via a cart.

Many fans and members of the Jets organisation have feared the worst, and they are hoping the MRI scan today doesn't reveal Cromartie to have torn his ACL and/or his MCL.

Non-contact injuries are usually the worst and they have occurred all too many times already this season. Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin of the Carolina Panthers went down after a non-contact injury and now he is sidelined for the year with a torn ACL.

Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles revealed his disappointment of the injury after the game: He said, according to ESPN: "It's a big blow because he's a good player. We brought him in here to be a good player, but we have a lot of young guys behind him. We have a lot of good corners. It's one of our deepest positions. ... We have guys in the building who can go out and play."

Cromartie rejoined the Jets this offseason on a four-year, $32 million contract, after playing last season with the Arizona Cardinals. Alongside the returning Darrelle Revis too, the Jets looked to have one of the best secondaries in the NFL. However, with the events of yesterday, this could now be under threat.

Earlier in the game, Cromartie was left in the dust on a 54-yard touchdown pass to Browns' wide receiver Travis Benjamin. This was also Johnny Manziel's first career touchdown pass in the NFL.

The Jets ended up winning the game 31-10.
