Every Monday, the Jets watch a DVD coach Rex Ryan calls “Play Like A Jet.” Win or lose, the coaching staff pieces together several highlights, maybe as many as 10 clips, that typify the type of effort they want to see on the field.
Jerricho Cotchery’s overtime catch Sunday against the Browns was the feature yesterday in Florham Park.
Cotchery went over the middle on a routine route on third-and-9 midway through the extra frame. As he crossed from one hash mark to another around midfield, he pulled up lame, favoring his groin. He froze for a moment in obvious agony, unable to run as Mark Sanchez scrambled around.
“I just saw Mark coming out of the pocket and I was like, ‘Don’t look at me,’” Cotchery said. “And he did. He told me, ‘Slide the other way.’ I was like, ‘I can’t.’ Then he threw the ball. I just tried to make a play.”
He might not be making any plays this Sunday against Houston. An MRI yesterday revealed a slight groin tear that will keep Cotchery in the cold tub and getting tissue massages most of the week.
