Jets' Kris Jenkins has torn ACL, is out for the season
Updated at 2:12 p.m.
Kris Jenkins, nose tackle for the New York Jets, tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the Monday night game against the Baltimore Ravens and will miss the rest of the season.
Jenkins, who played at the University of Maryland, hurt the same knee on which he had surgery last season.
"I just spoke to Kris," Jets Coach Rex Ryan told reporters. "He's down. It's a big loss."
The injury could be career-ending for Jenkins, 31. "He's going to get away from it a little bit and then he'll make his decision," Ryan said.
Could the loss of Jenkins mean that the Jets are suddenly in the market for a defensive lineman, albeit a disgruntled one? Even despite the disgruntled one's aversion to playing nose tackle in a 3-4?
Bob Glauber of Newsday tweets:
Have to believe Jets will at least investigate Albert Haynesworth. It's Tannenbaum's MO. Could hasten deal to Titans if they blink on compensation.
The Jets also are looking at Adalius Thomas, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNY.com
Grant, Sanders suffer significant injuries
Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant will be out the rest of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the Packers' opener against Philadelphia; he is expected to undergo surgery. Indianapolis Colts defensive back Bob Sanders is believed to have a torn biceps and expected to miss significant time, perhaps the rest of the season. He played in only two games last season because of a torn biceps in the other arm.
