Jets | Martin's future uncertain

Dave Hutchinson, of the Star-Ledger, reports New York Jets RB Curtis Martin (knee) recommended to the team before the NFL Draft that they should strongly consider taking a back high in the draft because of his concern over his ability to play in 2006. Martin had arthroscopic knee surgery in December to clean out his knee, but it has not responded well. With the team entering the second week of training camp, there is growing concern that his career may be in jeopardy. If Martin is able to play in 2006, it is unlikely he will be ready to go at the start of the season. Martin, who has had surgery on his right knee the past two seasons, remains on the team's PUP list. It is believed a great deal of the cartilage in his knee is gone, which is what is giving Martin problems. One team official said he's dealing with "bone on bone" in his knee.
