The Jets worst fears have come true as ESPN confirms running back Breece Hall suffered a season-ending torn ACL. Easily the best player on the Jets offense who has been carrying the group during the team’s recent four-game winning streak, Hall took to twitter to show his appreciation for the support he has received from fans. Hall closed the tweet by simply saying “see y’all soon”. The blow is a devastating one for a Jets team that had shocked onlookers by jumping out to a 5-2 start and winners of four in a row despite mostly poor QB play.
Appreciate the endless love and support! Another step along the journey, see y’all soon❤️🤞🏾 https://t.co/igPCYca5Qn

Robert Saleh was asked about the next man up mentality in the locker room and here is what he had to say:
I think they’ll be fine. I always say this, somebody go up to Michael Carter and say that he can’t do it. Somebody go to Ty Johnson and tell him that he can’t do it. Somebody go to Cedric and tell him that he can’t do it. They’re going to look at you sideways. We’ve got all the faith in the world in those guys that they can go in and step in and do the job. Michael Carter has proven it, Ogbuehi has a ton of talent and he’s done it in the past and Ty Johnson has a ton of talent. Bam (Zonovan Knight) is going to get an opportunity to step up. So, nobody in our locker room will look at each other and say, ‘We just got worse because we got to go with this guy.’ I promise you the person who is stepping up isn’t thinking that and I promise you we’re not thinking that either. It’s a great opportunity for somebody else to step up and put their name out in the open, but I’m more hurt for Breece and AVT because of the season’s that they’ve been having, and it sucks for them because of what they’re doing and the direction that they’ve been going.
