FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Joe McKnight has had a summer he'd rather forget.

There have been questions about the New York Jets running back's conditioning, an arrest for unpaid traffic warrants, a concussion, migraine headaches, a few questionable posts on Twitter and some tension with the media. McKnight, entering his fourth NFL season, tells The Associated Press on Tuesday that the last few weeks have been ``rough'' but he now knows ``who my enemies are and who's with me.''

McKnight, the team's primary kick returner the last two seasons, says he's over his concussion and was a full participant at practice Tuesday, without the red no-contact jersey. He also insists he'll play in the Jets' preseason game Saturday night against the Giants so he can ``get out there and really prove myself.''
