The injury bug hit last night, and it hit the Jets badly. After making a catch for 24 yards to start the game, Dustin Keller came out, not to return after a hamstring injury. Thankfully, Rex said after the game that his injury doesn’t appear to be serious, as he is a main weapon for this team, and we are already thin at TE. Another injury that isn’t serious at this point is the ankle injury sustained by David Harris. He left the game, but it doesn’t sound like he broke his ankle, and just may have sprained it a bit. He would be a big loss to the defense.
The injury to Josh Baker, however, looked very serious. He was involved in a nasty collision in the endzone, and was not able to put any weight on his injured leg. We hope it is not as serious as originally thought, and he can get back on the field at some point, as he has had a great camp to date.
Tim Tebow was just not accurate with his passes. The INT he threw was bad, as he stared down his wide receiver for quite a long time. You cannot do that in this league. He had a couple of nice throws, especially in the final two minutes, but the rest of them were not good. He finished 4-14 for 55 yards.
He did show some magic in the last two minutes though, didn’t he? He got the offense moving with his feet, and a couple of completions to lead them almost to a game winning score. Say a lot about the guy, but Tim Tebow has a spark in him when the game is on the line. This, there is no doubt.
