This isn’t the official injury report, which will come out later, but there is a lot of injury news coming out of the New York Jets practice today.
Per Manish Mehta, of the New York Daily News, the Jets will be down another tight end this weekend as Jeff Cumberland is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints due to a concussion. Missing this week’s game allows him until November 17 to get back to form as the Jets are on a bye week next week.
That’s not the only injury news. Here are some of the players not practicing yet: Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley, Chris Ivory, Mohammed Wilkerson, and Willie Colon.
However, there is some good injury news. Santonio Holmes was taking part in wide receiver drills. After weeks of no good news on the Holmes front, things are starting to look a lot brighter. However, as Holmes pointed out earlier this year, looks can be deceiving. This does look good for Holmes returning soon.
My take: the biggest thing I take from this is that there is finally some good news on Santonio Holmes. I don’t really expect him to play this week, but I can now expect him to be back after the bye week. Jeff Cumberland being out doesn’t surprise me much, he did suffer a concussion after all. The other injuries we don’t yet know the extent of, so I won’t comment yet. Hopefully we will hear later on them.
