More reports out of New York Jets camp suggest that Safety Jim Leonhard did in fact tear his ligament in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

An MRI is scheduled for today but it looks like Leonhard will be out for the second straight season with injury.

He broke his leg last season and missed the final five games of the regular season as well playoffs.

Leonhard was hurt while trying to run away from Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Steve Breaston after a first half interception in the Jets 37-10 victory.
