Joe McKnight’s week has started with him holding a weird press conference and trying to arrange a fight with a Twitter follower

joe mcknightThese past two weeks of Jets camp has been a struggle for Joe McKnight. Between getting injured and having to deal with legal issues, you would think that things couldn’t get any worse.

Well, they kinda have. Not because McKnight has found himself with even more issues. But because of his response to his current issues.

It all started on Sunday when McKnight sat down with reporters and refused to answer any of their questions. And by that I mean, he continuously repeated the phrase, “I’m not getting into that right now” after every question hurled at him by reporters.

Here’s a taste of that weird occasion from Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News.

Q: How’s your health?
McKnight: I’m not getting into that right now, man, but I feel good to be back out on the field.

Q: Do you know when you’ll be cleared to be full go?
McKnight: Like I said, I’m not getting into that right now. I’m going to wait until the doctors tell me I’m cleared. It feels good to be back on the field.

Q: Did you go through a period of time, Joe, when felt out of it or woozy?
McKnight: Hey, I’m not getting into that right now.

Q: How did you get hurt?
McKnight: I’m not getting into that right now.

And it just goes on and on like this.

Then on Monday, McKnight took to his Twitter to vent his frustration only to end up trying to arrange a fight with a follower.

First, the venting of frustration.

Then, a fan responds, “about time you get released. Good luck. And stay healthy.”.  From there, McKnight attempts to arrange a “meeting”.

Let’s all hope the rest of McKnight’s week goes a little better.
