Jets lineman Rob Turner out 8-10 weeks

DIGIPIX AP

The shaky depth of the Jets offensive line took a big hit Monday night when backup Rob Turner went down to injury.

Turner will miss 8-10 weeks with a broken leg after he undergoes surgery, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Turner is one of those glue guys you don’t hear about much, but he’s very valuable to a Jets team already looking thinner on the line.  Turner can play multiple spots, including backing up Nick Mangold at center.

Vladimir Ducasse, who doesn’t seem to be developing very quickly, is the primary backup guard and tackle.  Mehta wonder if the Jets could reach out to center Shaun O’Hara.

    And he walked off the field. Tough SOB.

    meaning Miami should pick up O’Hara to simultaneously help themselves and hurt the Jets.

    Is he the dude that pushed the trainers away from him? If so, thats pretty badass with a broken leg.

    he looks pretty happy for a broken leg, and it looks like they won too

    Granted we have one of – if not – the best Center in the League, Turner did so much more. We definitely need to get a replacement, and O’Hara would work at this.

    Ready for the haters saying the Jets are done hahaha.

    sanchez probably wants to fight him right about now

    That’s too bad – Rex Ryan must really be depressed with all these injuries, given the fact that he once again promised New York Sports fans a Super Bowl victory.

    Don’t despair Rex.

    Keep your chins up!

    Bad depth news. Ducasse was absolutely awful. I thought Watt was just coming along well, but when the Houston second string was mauling him then I got scared. I’m terrified he’s going to get someone else hurt, seeing as he got Turner hurt. God help us if he ever has to come out in a real game situation.

    Rex Ryan really needs to do some sole searching…

  11. nyjalleffingday says: Aug 16, 2011 1:17 PM

    And no, Turner got carted off. The Texans guy (idk his name) was the one who walked off and pushed the trainer away.

    “We’re going to find a new back-up center who can kick the ass of every other back-up center in the league!!! This is just moar proof we’re headed to the SB!!!” – Soon-to-come Rex commentary

    Jack Youngblood played a Super Bowl with a broken leg.

  14. paulbrownsrevenge says: Aug 16, 2011 1:22 PM

    At least it wasn’t his foot, says Rex.

  15. drstrangelust says: Aug 16, 2011 1:22 PM

    Couldn’t have happened to a better team! Though I hope the dude a speedy and full recovery.

  16. jetlionlove says: Aug 16, 2011 1:24 PM

    id like to see the jets get a veteran here that can swing multiple possibles

    Mawae comeback? Always liked that dude

  17. homelanddefense says: Aug 16, 2011 1:28 PM

    i liked this guy on hard knocks. Wasnt he the one Ryan asked to start a fight with Gholston to fire him up?

  18. colonelcamp says: Aug 16, 2011 1:45 PM

    This is a pretty big loss. He’s the number 6 lineman plus he comes in on goal line packages as an eligible receiver.

    Get well soon. Oh, and from what my amateur eyes can see, Ducase sucks.

  19. duncanthecat says: Aug 16, 2011 1:50 PM

    Old school tuff. Gotta pull for him. Get well!

  20. david7590 says: Aug 16, 2011 2:32 PM

    Did the Dolphins sign O’Hara before Turner even went down?

  21. toddhaleysanger1 says: Aug 16, 2011 2:34 PM

    Jets year was last year.. they missed their shot. The league moves forward.. They will not make the Playoffs this year with that squad.

  22. jdandcoke says: Aug 16, 2011 4:02 PM

    saw this with the giants o-line all last year…..blows for the jets. o-lineman are never appreciated until they get injured.

  23. paulsdamnblog says: Aug 16, 2011 4:43 PM

    Injuries like this really suck. It almost feels like they lose nothing but when you go below the surface it really hurts. That said it doesn’t change the fact that Rex Ryan believes “Derrick Mason is huge”. Wow Rex, didn’t know you knew him like that.

  24. rooneyruleblues says: Aug 16, 2011 5:00 PM

    Nobody cares about the jets outside of new jersey. I mean seriously, I cant wait till Rex gets fired. I would pay money to watch him walk his cardboard box out to his car when it finally happens.

    Big Mouth, never done anything. Slob.
