Josh Baker Done For The Season With Knee Injury

by Dennis Agapito on August 27, 2012

Jets TE/FB Josh Baker sustained a season ending knee injury in last night’s preseason game with the Carolina Panthers:

The Daily News has learned that TE Josh Baker is believed to have suffered at least a torn right ACL that will sideline him for the season. Baker is having a MRI on Monday morning to confirm the diagnosis.

Baker was looking to have an increased role with the offense this season as he was capable of playing in the backfield or up close to the line, the h-back position.  The Jets will be searching other team’s cuts to add depth as they are thin at TE and FB.  The Jets even started using LB Nick Bellore at the FB spot during portions of practice.

UPDATE:  The Jets have waived/injured Baker so once he clears waivers Baker will be put on season ending reserved/injured (IR).
