Following their preseason Week 3 loss to the New York Giants, only one player on the New York Jets suffered an injury.

The New York Jets are coming off a second straight preseason loss with this time being to the New York Giants. In the 50th Snoopy Bowl between both New York football clubs, the Giants can now take the bragging rights all year long and proudly display the Snoopy trophy in their locker room.

The Jets left this game with just one injury to a player. Unfortunately, cornerback Rashard Robinson suffered a hip injury and didn’t return to the game once he was taken out. This doesn’t bode well for his chances to make the final roster of the Jets if he’s unable to compete in training camp or play in the preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Robinson was hit with a four-game suspension earlier this summer due to violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He was arrested last December due to being in the possession of drugs. The Jets already have enough depth at cornerback so if Robinson doesn’t make the final roster, they should be fine in the positional group.

The Jets now put their focus on continuing training camp and begin the lengthy process of finalizing their 53-man roster for the regular season. It won’t be easy but it’s all about fielding the best possible team that can win a lot of football games.

Looking to bounce back from two straight 5-11 losing seasons, the Jets still have a lot of work ahead of themselves before they can become contenders again. Injuries have played a part in the past but here’s to hoping they end the preseason with no other major injuries.
