Some news surrounding wide receiver Jeremy Kerley.
Take a look at this tweet from ESPN New York’s Jets reporter, Rich Cimini:
Jeremy Kerley, who underwent tests today, has a dislocated elbow, per source. Looks like he’ll be out at least a few weeks. #Jets

This has not been confirmed by the Jets at this point, but the source has advised Rich that the wide receiver will be out for the Jets for at least a few weeks.
For anyone who saw the injury yesterday, we know that the injury looked pretty serious, so if it’s just a dislocation, that is a good sign for Jeremy. However, him missing any time at all is not good for an offense that has its issues with depth at the skilled positions.
David Nelson will be called upon to fill a larger role in Kerley’s absence, as will Josh Cribbs. These two have been good so far, and these two will play a significant part of whether or not the team is successful in the second half.
