Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, who sat out practice on Monday, is listed on the club’s injury report as having a concussion.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, Kerley passed concussion tests during and after Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers but did not pass a test on Monday morning.

Kerley sustained a big hit late in the second quarter in the Jets’ 18-17 win vs. Tampa Bay, as he was sandwiched between multiple Tampa Bay defenders after an eight-yard catch. Kerley’s helmet came off after the collision. Kerley would go on to play in the second half, but he had just one fourth-quarter rush.

The Jets’ next game is in just three days at New England. The Jets have five receivers on the roster: Kerley, Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Clyde Gates and Ryan Spadola.

Other Jets players missing practice on Monday were outside linebacker Quinton Coples (ankle), quarterback Mark Sanchez (shoulder) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee).

The Jets’ limited practice participants were Holmes (foot), center Nick Mangold (elbow), cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip), defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (shoulder), tight end Jeff Cumberland (chin), nose tackle Kenrick Ellis (back) and Gates (knee).

  1. In the new NFL you’re not allowed to hit anyone too hard regardless of if it was clean or not — this was a clean sandwich hit, not that it matters anymore. 3 clean hits called PFs yesterday gave the Jets the 10 points and the victory, ridiculous. Please thumb down this if you have a “mancave” and like to drink wine with your metrosexual friends on Sundays.

  2. There was absolutely nothing clean about the hit on Kerley. Please thumbs up if your like onebucplace, like to impress the ladies by slamming your head into a wall over and over again in between chugging your keystone lights.

  3. Sorry Jets fans, you watched a different game then I did… those hits were clean, tough, but clean. That includes the gift you got at the end of the game.
    Heck GB fan doesn’t think the Clay Matthews’ hit was a penalty. Lavante David hardly touched your precious Geno, INBOUNDS!

    Thumbs down if you are a whiny NYer that pouts when you don’t get your way.

  4. whysomanylosers… clearly your not clear on the rules. It doesn’t matter that geno smith was in bounds. the rule states that if he is clearly running out of bounds, which clearly he was with one foot out, but just not down yet, it qualifies as unnecessary roughness.

    Did the jets get a win through penalties? its hard to argue they didn’t… But it wasn’t luck, it was dumb play by the bucs. Think before lining a guy up whose running out of bounds at the 50 when ur up by 2 with no time left.

    The high hits were high, even if intent was not to go helmet to helmet, each of those hits eventually made head to head contact.

    whinny people. i lose every year for decades and i don’t complain this much. let us have one, CRIPES.

  5. You can thank Geno for that and also for Cumberland’s injury.
    He threw to them both of them in triple coverage!
    It was like watching action pinball when those guys got hammered.
    Rookie or not, that is unacceptable.
