Joe McKnight on his way to Green Bay
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (8/30/13) Veteran running back Joe McKnight was not out of work long. Four days after being cut by the Jets, he tweeted that he is headed to the Packers on Saturday, reports NBC Sports.

Joe McKnight helped off the field wearing an oxygen mask
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (8/12/13) Jets running back Joe McKnight fell to the field during a drill Monday and had to be helped off wearing an oxygen mask, the Associated Press reports. McKnight has been recovering from a head injury and dealing with dehydration during camp, the report said.
Joe McKnight will remain a reserve running back for the Jets and will likely be No. 4 on the depth chart at best behind Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Mike Goodson. That's a best-case scenario for McKnight this year. McKnight had a rough year in 2012 when he spent time at cornerback just to get playing time. Keep an eye on what happens this offseason, but McKnight is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. (Updated 5/15/13)
