The New York Jets didn’t just lose one rookie to injured reserve on Wednesday.

After placing fourth-round receiver Shaq Evans on injured reserve, the team also placed third-round cornerback Dexter McDougle on injured reserve with a knee injury.

McDougle injured his knee in practice for the Jets last week. The rookie out of the University of Maryland tore his ACL and had surgery on Wednesday to repair his ligament. The move to injured reserve had been expected after McDougle suffered the injury on Aug. 10.

McDougle had one tackle and pass defense in his only preseason action against the Indianapolis Colts.

    This one sucks, McDougle has decent CB skills and he was in discussion for replacing Patterson as a starter. Heal up, rehab, see you in 2015 Dexter…
