Just got home and was listening on 1050ESPN to Bob Wischusen & Marty Lyons, they think it's the same knee as last season, and not sure of the severity of the injury. Should know more when they get back from the locker room and half time break.
[QUOTE]There was no immediate diagnosis on NT Kris Jenkins' knee injury, but he left the game in the first quarter and didn't return. Gut feeling here, but this looks serious. This would be a serious blow to the defense, but as we saw last season, the Jets can thrive without Jenkins. He missed the last 10 games in 2009, but the Jets still finished No. 1 in overall defense. For Jenkins personally, if this is a significant injury that requires surgery, it could prompt him to consider retirement. He admitted he had fleeting thoughts of retirement after the last knee surgery. You have to wonder if this would put him over the edge. [/QUOTE]
I am agitated by any suggestion that he is not tough enough fot the NFL. If you look at the replay, I am sure you'll agree that any person subjected to that impact would be in trouble. It looked horrendously painful.
The DEfense was GREAT without him last year..and tonight...The Only problems with the jets is OC and QB..[/QUOTE]
Our defense is real good, especially our run defense. and I agree with you about our offense....but I CARE....Jenkins is a great asset and it would just be nice to have him on the field for an entire season. At this point, that seems impossible.
