The Jets may have lost more than a division game on Sunday.
Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted Sunday night that the knee injury nose tackle Kris Jenkins suffered against the Bills was “probably severe.”
Rod Boone of Newsday was more ominous, tweeting: “From the sound of
things and the way some of the players are talking, Kris Jenkins’
season may [repeat may] be over with a knee injury.“
The New York Daily News writes that people familiar with Jenkins’ injury fear he has ligament damage and is done for the season.
There aren’t many true 3-4 nose tackles in the league, and certainly not many that can dominate like Jenkins.
Sione Pouha, a starter at defensive end, will likely move over to replace Jenkins.
