Pace hurt his groin early in practice yesterday and is now out againist the Bengals. Groin injuries can linger for weeks and Pace is seemingly a slow healer. Last year he broke his foot during the preseason and never fully recovered. Now a speed guy with a groin can't be very effective. Have to ask Tanny if guaranteeing Pace's next years salary was the right move.
The Jets are thin at OLB. And so so to begin with.
Coupled with a D line that is a major question mark = concern.
The D line has quite a few newbies. Potential (there's that famous word) but until they produce - not ready to get crazy about.
[QUOTE=LI JET FAN;4109707]Any injury that Pace has is BIG! He was never terribly effective during the regular season last year. Now with an injured groin let's see how long it will take him to get after the passer.[/QUOTE]
He had a damn broken foot that was only 20% healed after the season. I'd say that's a bit more serious than a minor groin in preseason.
The groin injury is obviously minor if they're allowing him to participate in individual drills (as per Rex press conference). Where did you hear he was OUT?
