Martin's MRI a break for Jets 

September, 20, 2005
The Jets got a big break when they found out Tuesday that Curtis Martin's knee examination was negative and he should be able to play Sunday against the Jaguars. The team isn't saying how they are going to list him for the game. Martin has been telling friends he's find and should be able to carry on his consecutive-game playing streak.

Robinson waived, re-signed: Vikings receiver Koren Robinson was waived Tuesday but that was a technical matter. He was re-signed within five minutes. A week ago, Robinson, who was pursued by the Packers, agreed to a one-year contract instead of the two-year, $1.5 million deal he signed before the start of the regular season. When the team released him prior to opening day in order to get him back without a guaranteed contract, Robinson had enough leverage to get a one-year deal. The NFL Management Council needed to make clear that he was under the one-year deal, so Robinson had to be released and signed to a new one-year, $540,000 deal. He may make his Vikings debut this weekend.

Seahawks get special-teams help: The Seahawks tried to help their special teams with the addition of cornerback Jimmy Williams. The loss of wide receiver Alex Bannister for the season put the team in need of a top special-teams player. Bannister went to the Pro Bowl a couple of years ago but he has broken his clavicle three times. Williams can help the Seahawks on special teams.
