Leonhard update

By Marc A. Greenberg

Various news outlets are reporting that New York Jets safety Jim Leonhard has broken his leg and is out for the season.

Stay tuned.

Terrible loss for the Jets here. Among the obvious, Leonhard calls the defensive signals and is the No. 1 punt returner.

UPDATE:  Jim Leonhard has a broken tibia and will miss the remainder of the season.  Leonhard had surgery tonight at Morristown Hospital.

Ryan has stated that Eric Smith will be calling plays for the defense and Jerricho Cotchery will be returning punts on Monday Night in New England.
