Jets RB Joe McKnight Could Also Play Cornerback Against The Steelers

Jets running back Joe McKnight could end up playing both ways Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The New York Daily News is reporting that coach Rex Ryan had McKnight working out at corner also during the week.

McKnight reportedly lost his job as the third-down back to Bilal Powell, so he had some free time on his hands.

With Darrelle Revis not making the trip to Pittsburgh, the Jets only have four healthy cornerbacks.

McKnight played cornerback and safety in highschool, and was recruited to USC as a defensive back before switching to offense.
