HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -Jets quarterback Kellen Clemens was listed as questionable Friday for New York's game against Kansas City because of a rib injury that sidelined him last week.
Clemens was injured at New England two weeks ago, when he was hit hard by Richard Seymour while throwing a pass that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. He appeared to land directly on his left shoulder and was replaced by Chad Pennington, who also started last Sunday at Tennessee.
Clemens, who assumed the starting job in Week 9, was severely limited last week in practice with what the Jets have called a rib injury, standing to the side as Pennington threw during most of the media availability. He's looked much better this week, showing good velocity on his throws and appearing as though he'll be ready to play against the Chiefs.
``He's made a lot of progress from last week,'' coach Eric Mangini said. ``We'll see where he is today and just evaluate as we go.''
It could be a big start for Clemens, who was drafted in the second round last year as the Jets' quarterback of the future. He has struggled mightily since becoming the starter, throwing four touchdown passes and 10 interceptions while ranking 32nd in the league with a 59.0 quarterback rating.
Center Nick Mangold was excused from practice for the second straight day for personal reasons. He was listed as questionable for the game, but Mangini expects him to be back by Sunday.
