The Jets received bad news today as Dexter McDougle tore his ACL during practice. Rex Ryan explained when the injury happened, “it was during one-on-one’s in the red zone and apparently he just came down and a cleat got caught. That is what I understood.” The NY Jets confirmed the severity of the injury.

Cornerback remains a position of concern for the Jets. McDougle played well in the Jets first preseason game against the Colts. Now the 3rd round pick out of the University of Maryland will rehab and he is expected to miss the entire season.
Thank you everyone who has sent me your support and prayers. This is a tough blow but I promise, I will be back better than ever. #GodSpeed
