HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (Nov. 21, 2005) -- Jets quarterback Brooks Bollinger will start New York's Week 12 game against New Orleans despite a concussion that sidelined him for most of their loss to Denver.
Coach Herman Edwards said that Bollinger underwent several exams and still had a small headache, but is fine to play. Bollinger took a hard hit from Al Wilson in the first quarter of New York's 27-0 loss and exited with a concussion that left him vomiting on the sideline.
Vinny Testaverde went into the game and sprained his right ankle, leaving his status in doubt for Week 12. Testaverde is listed as probable, but if he's too sore to practice this week, Kliff Kingsbury will be the backup quarterback.
Kingsbury replaced Testaverde late in the game, the fifth quarterback the Jets have used this season.
