NY Jets Injury Report; Week One vs Buffalo Bills
NY Jets Injury Report
Robert Saleh gave the week one injury report; fortunately, it was short. Duane Brown, Mekhi Becton, and Breece Hall were all limited for practice today. As the season is finally here, keeping an eye on player availability is crucial—especially with the new NFL rules that allow two practice squad players to be elevated to the active roster on game day. This could give teams added flexibility in dealing with last-minute injuries or strategic adjustments. Duane Brown will most likely be limited in practice often this year. They will keep him on a pitch count to keep him fresh for game day. Mekhi Becton is definitely the wild card. Can he play 17 games? They are counting on him, and he has a huge chance to resurrect his career.
For the Buffalo Bills, the Jets catch a break as Von Miller will definitely miss the game, as he’s currently on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. This could be a significant advantage for the Jets’ offense come Sunday. Additionally, Bills’ safety Micah Hyde had a limited practice due to a back injury, which could impact the Buffalo secondary if he’s less than 100%.
We will have injury updates all week, so make sure to stay updated as we approach kickoff! One topic other fans are discussing in our forums is how carries will break down between the Jets running backs. Dalvin Cook just got here, Breece Hall is coming back from his injury last season, and Izzy is a rookie who returned sooner than expected from his thigh injury. Could Michael Carter get a bigger chunk of the carries this week? We will find out soon enough.
