Coach Rex Ryan says Monday that Cromartie, while showing improvement, is going through the NFL's mandated protocol for head injuries after the cornerback was injured in the Jets' 37-27 win over the Oakland Raiders. It was uncertain exactly when Cromartie was hurt, but he and teammate Ed Reed smacked into each other while trying to defend a pass to Rod Streater in the third quarter.

Streater scored on the 48-yard reception, and both Cromartie and Reed were slow to get up. Both players returned, and Ryan said Cromartie was not checked for a concussion until he complained of a headache after the victory.
