 HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -The thick, black wrap that covered Chad Pennington's right ankle earlier in the week was gone Friday. The New York Jets quarterback's limp was still there, but less pronounced than it had been.
Pennington's injured right ankle appeared to be a lot better Friday as he dropped back and threw light passes while the Jets prepared for their game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. He had a less noticeable white wrap around the ankle and was listed as questionable on the injury report.
Despite published reports that the Jets had already decided on starting backup Kellen Clemens, coach Eric Mangini insisted that hadn't been determined.
``I'll make a decision once all the information's in,'' Mangini said before Friday's practice.
While it would seem unlikely the Jets would play a hobbled Pennington against one of the league's toughest defenses, the team might still be considering the possibility.
``We have today and we're going to look at today,'' Mangini said. ``Chad's moving along in his rehab. Each day, we evaluate it, so we'll look at it today and see his progress. The program has been in place. He's Chad. He's as diligent as ever, whether it's this, studying the playbook, whatever the case may be. We'll see how that goes.''
Clemens could still be in line to make his first NFL start, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer thought Pennington looked good in practice Friday.
``I wouldn't rule him out,'' Schottenheimer said. ``I think that's something we'll discuss (Saturday) and see ultimately how Eric wants to go.''
Pennington injured the ankle when he was sacked by Jarvis Green during the third quarter of the Jets' 38-14 loss to the New England Patriots. He missed one play, but came back on New York's next series and led the Jets to a touchdown before pulling himself out of the game late in the fourth quarter.
retty high.''
It might increase even more if Pennington can play against Baltimore.
``Whoever ends up starting for us, the Ravens are a terrific defense,'' Schottenheimer said. ``It'll be quite a task for us, but our guys have had a good week of practice and are looking forward to the challenge.''
