We are a little late with this one, but here is an injury update on Quinton Coples. Yesterday it came out that Coples would require a procedure on his ankle.
Jets say Quinton Coples will have a procedure on his ankle on Tuesday & will miss the preseason. Out indefinitely.

Rex Ryan added, “Again, I don’t know the particulars right now on surgery, whatever. We just know that he’s out for at least the preseason games. We’re putting it that he’s out indefinitely because we don’t know exactly the timeframe on it.”
Garrett McIntyre will step into the starting lineup while Coples is out per Rex Ryan, “Yes, and we’ll rotate (Antwan) Barnes in there as well. But yes, Garret, I think he’s really earned that right. We brought Barnes in really to rush the passer and that would be his role, but obviously we’re going to challenge him to step it up in base as well. So, that’s why Garrett was starting primarily.”
