Joe Namath Holding Ball At Practice
(Original Caption) 11/18/1971-New York, NY- To be or not to be...quarterback. That is the question facing the Jets' "prince of players" Joe Namath, at his first workout with the offensive unit since his August knee operation. Namath's carved-up left knee felt good after the drill, he reported. He didn't play as the New York Jets beat the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo, 20-7, on October 21st, but there is talk that Namath might see action against the San Francisco 49ers in the Jets' next match.
