NY Jets Roster: Overview of the Current Offensive Line

Xavier Newman

The NY Jets Roster is in flux, with a wave of injuries hitting the offensive line. Only two original starters remain healthy. Watching the game yesterday, it was the first time in forever that I had to check the roster to look player #s up. This breakdown from Sarge in the JetNation Forums dives into the current state of the line. It lists everyone and examines who’s out, who’s stepping up, and what options the team has going forward. Definitely a good refresher with all of the recent changes.

Right now, the Jets have five healthy offensive linemen on the 53-man roster. They have three healthy offensive linemen on the practice squad.
