  Jets WR Crowder sits out practice, could miss 49ers game NEW YORK — The New York Jets' struggling offence could be without wide receiver Jamison Crowder against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Crowder sat out practice Thursday with a hamstring injury, leaving his availability for the game uncertain. Crowder was limited at practice Wednesday, but the Jets want to be cautious with their leading receiver. “We'll be evaluating him further and see where that takes us,” coach Adam Gase said. Crowder had his first 100-yard receiving game for the Jets in the season opener last Sunday at Buffalo when he caught seven passes for 115 yards and a touchdown.
