New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott has held a charity go-kart event to help benefit his foundation and Eric LeGrand, the former Rutgers player paralyzed in a game last year.

Scott, along with teammates including Mark Sanchez, Antonio Cromartie and David Harris, drove go-karts with teams of fans at Pole Position Raceway on Monday night and helped raise more than $25,000 for the “A Son Never Forgets Foundation.” LeGrand, injured against Army last season, was the guest of honor. – Read more from AP

Speaking at a go-kart racing event at Pole Position to benefit Bart Scott’s Foundation and fund the continued recovery of former Rutgers player Eric LeGrand, Sanchez downplayed the injury and its severity.

“I’m feeling good, feeling good. [Will] practice all week will get treatment as the week goes but feeling good,” Sanchez said.

“I’m ready to go for tomorrow, take all the reps — I’m ready.”
