The New York Jets have confirmed what every Jets fan was hoping not to hear today. Kris Jenkins will be placed on Injured Reserve and will miss the entire season. Jenkins was hurt in the game last night against the Ravens. Sources are reporting that the injury is a torn ACL in his left knee.
“Obviously it’s going to be a huge blow for us,” Ryan said in subdued tones at his news conference today at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center. “I just feel really bad for Kris, a guy that rehabbed that injury everyday and worked at it.”
“We lost a heck of a football player. The thing is we did overcome him last year. The defense rallied around the guys that were out there — Sione [Pouha], Mike DeVito. We talk that it’s about the unit; it’s not just the individual.. We just have to step up.”
It is a tough break for Jenkins who injured the same knee last season in week 6. You can read more in our NY Jets fan forum.
