Duane Brown out Sunday, may go on injured reserve

NFL: AUG 28 Preseason - Giants at Jets

Jets offensive tackle Duane Brown won’t play Sunday against the Ravens, and may not play again any time soon.

Brown has a shoulder injury and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game, and Jets head coach Robert Saleh said today that the injury may force the Jets to put Brown on injured reserve.

That’s a huge blow to the Jets after they signed Brown following the loss of offensive tackle Mekhi Becton to a season-ending knee injury. The Jets will be putting a patchwork offensive line in front of Joe Flacco on Sunday — and Flacco is only playing because starting quarterback Zach Wilson is also out with a knee injury.

The injury-plagued Jets came into this year thinking they’d need a big Year Two turnaround from Saleh and Wilson, but that’s going to be a lot harder than they expected after their bevy of preseason injuries.

  1. The 49ers were really snake bit a bunch when Selah was there. Could he have unfortunately taken some of that bad mojo with him to the Jets. Wow.

  2. Joe Douglas immediately on that hotseat after some disastrous decisions the last 3 years. His 2020 draft was abysmal and his FA faul last year only yielded 34 receptions for Corey Davis at 14 million per.

    Some of the worst GM work in the legaue.

    The Jamal Adams trade comes off as pure luck off of Carroll’s stupidity, but blowing the Becton and Zach Wilson picks basically make the haul from that great trade, moot.

    Yet again Jets fans do a lot of self brainwashing that somehow, some way the next year will be different and they just keep on with the bad hiring and poor culture.

  3. That’s such a Jets story. Did he really even take a physical? Or did they just sign him out of desperation?

    Football Gods have been watching. Woody Johnson told Goodell to frame the Pats for SPygate. There was no Spygate.

    Mangini came into Foxborough, broke the rule and nothing happened. When Kraft called and asked why there was no punishment and nothing happened, that’s when BB threw it in their face in Sept of 2007 on the sidelines.

    Goodell lied and cheated and here we are 15 years later still seeing Goodell cheat almost daily.

    But, that will curse the Jets as long as cheater Woody Johnson owns that team.

  5. Another brilliant move by Pete Carroll. Doesn’t resign Brown who showed his wear/tear last season. Jettisoned Wagner that looked 10 steps behind the play as his team got rolled last night. Sucked the Broncos into a king’s ransom for a waaayyy past his prime Wilson. Pete will probably have another SB championship in the next 2-3 years.

  6. The NFL should combine the Giants and Jets to see if they can make one good football team out of all the pieces/parts…

    And the sky is brown, there is no pandemic and Brady deflated footballs, too.

    Pete Caroll imported a cooked Duane Brown from Houston and then actually gave the Jets TWO 1st rd picks for Jamal Adams while overpaying the bust at 20 mil per, and is now overpaying a WR who runs 5 routes during a rebuild with no QB.

    If he didn’t acquire Adams in one of the worst traded in NFL history, he wouldn’t have needed to ditch Wilson to make up for those lost picks.

    Yes, that’s really great teambuilding.

  8. It’s football. Injuries happen,and they happen to everyone. Good teams find ways to win anyway.

  10. He said Von Miller was done/cooked, and that the Bills would be steamrolled last night. Nostradamus he isn’t.
