Aaron Berry Tears ACL, Out for the Season


This is very bad news for a team already missing a cornerback.

We already heard earlier today that Dee Milliner is a no-show at Jets camp, while working out his contract. Now, disastrous news reported on returning veteran Aaron Berry.

Berry, formerly of the Detroit Lions, has torn his ACL on the first day of practice. The news coming out of Cortland is that he will miss the year with the injury, as is common.

As I said, this is terrible news in general, but add to the fact that Milliner is a holdout, and the situation is worse. That leaves us with Cromartie, Kyle Wilson, and young guys like Ellis Lankster, and Isaiah Trufant. Darrin Walls is in the mix as well, look for him to have a chance to make an impact now going forward.

Antonio Cromartie is doing a good job leading this group on the first day, but the cupboard is drying up as far as guys he has to lead. Hopefully, Dee will be signed and in camp soon. He needs all the time he can get.

    Good thing we WERE deep at cornerback. I guess we won’t be trading any corners this year

    • TheJetPress

      probably not

  • Edwin Cuquito Camacho

    This guy must have juiced out of his mind before the way he is always hurt…. has the signs of someone who juiced for a long period and stopped cuz he cannot heal….

      Not impossible

    Agreed not good news. I have to believe though when they get Dee in camp, things will look a little better. If the kid steps up and plays as many have predicted he will, Berry will be an after thought. The Jet CB’s fared well last season without Revis. There have been some good words written about Wilson’s off season program. Lankster is young, but the general consensus that I’ve read is that they still believe he has a huge upside. One of these young guys steps up and improves, and it won’t seem so bad.

      Good points Paul. I think we all will feel better about it when Milliner arrives.
