It wasn’t bad enough that the Jets lost today, but the word on the injury front is not good. Earlier tonight, we already heard that the Jets are concerned that Dee Milliner‘s injury is a serious one. Now we here this:
Jets fear starting RG Brian Winters has torn ACL, per league source. MRI tomorrow.

- NY Jets should try to sign Kenny Golladay in free agency
As the tweet says, the Jets have an MRI scheduled for tomorrow, so we will find out more about Winters’ fate at that point, as we will, I imagine, Dee Milliner. But, losing two guys for the season is not good for the New York Jets, as their season continues to spiral towards the point of no return.
Oday Aboushi would likely be the guy to assume starting duties if Winters is out for an extended period of time. Not that we have been in love with the play of Brian Winters, but the Jets don’t have a lot of depth anywhere, so even a loss of Brian Winters is huge.
