Jim Leonhard is a vital part of the Jets’ pass defense.

The Jets’ are contending with injuries to multiple defensive backs as their contest with the high-powered New Orleans Saints draws nearer. Corners Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland both missed the tilt with Tennessee, and valuable Safety Jim Leonhard was absent from practice today, nursing a knee injury. Should Leonhard be out Sunday, backup Eric Smith will need to maintain his recent string of strong play.

    Eric smith blows. He has no string of “strong play”. We are in big trouble if Brees is throwing against HIM !

    disagree…….. he plays multiple roles, on the line as pass rusher/decoy blitzer ,extra LB and patrols the deep third……. how can you state that??????????
