Jets | Martin enduring tough season; close to setting NFL Record

Randy Lange, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Jets RB Curtis Martin (knee) has been suffering from a nagging knee injury throughout this season and stated that this year has been one of the most challenging of his career. "It's been very tough," Martin said. "This has been one of my more challenging years if not my most challenging year physically." This year, Martin is just 265 yards shy of setting the NFL record for most consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, breaking a tie with former Detroit Lions RB Barry Sanders. "I've never been a goal guy [but] this is one I think would be special," Martin said. "I have to understand that this would be special, not for myself but just for everyone who's a part of it."
