HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -Danny Woodhead, the NCAA's career rushing leader, was carted off the practice field Friday with an apparent knee injury.
The nature and severity of the injury wasn't immediately known, and the Jets' policy is to not discuss injuries.
``We don't have an update yet,'' general manager Mike Tannenbaum said. ``Danny's been working hard, a lot of productivity out of him in college. He's a great kid.''
The 5-foot-7 running back, a rookie free agent from Chadron State who has already become an early training camp fan favorite, was injured late in practice and helped to the sideline by running back Thomas Jones, fullback Tony Richardson and a team trainer.
He was attended to in a small tent on the sideline, where he removed his pads and jersey. After several minutes, Woodhead was carted off the field and into the.team's facility.
While still a long shot to make the opening day roster, Woodhead received a lot of work during the Jets' first three training camp practices on offense and special teams.
The native of North Platte, Neb., was undrafted - mostly because of his size - despite rushing for 7,962 yards in four seasons at Chadron State. Woodhead also compiled 9,479 career all-purpose yards, second-best in college football history, and was a two-time Harlon Hill Trophy winner as the nation's top Division II player.
