Jets RB Chris Ivory Says “He’s Not Injury Prone”

Chris Ivory signed a three-year $10 million deal in New York, because he wanted to be the guy, and the Jets would offer him an opportunity the Saints never did.

The knock on Ivory going back to his days in New Orleans, was that Ivory was too small to take the physical pounding of being an every down back in the NFL.

Now with the Jets, Ivory hasn’t practiced at all with his new team since training camp started, but still brave enough to tell the New York Post that talks of him being injury prone are “just nonsense.’

“I wouldn’t say I struggled with injuries in the NFL,” Ivory told The Post yesterday after yet another workout missed to a balky hamstring that will also keep him out of tomorrow night’s exhibition opener at the Lions.

“I had four or five hamstring injuries and a foot injury, which is a lot, but I was always able to get over the hump [in New Orleans],” he continued. “It’s always been more the media saying I was injury-prone, which is frustrating.
Ivory can say what he wants, but he only played in 24 for the Saints over his three seasons in New Orleans.  Ivory basically missed half a season for three straight years in New Orleans.
