NY Jets head coach Robert Saleh spoke to reporters prior to practice on Tuesday and provided an update on a number of injured players on the team's roster.
The Jets have battled injuries all summer, and while none of the team's current injuries appear to be serious, there was some concern coming out of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game.
He also provided updates on injured veterans such as Carl Lawson, Duane Brown, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Laken Tomlinson. Below is a look at the updated status for each of the Jets' injured players.
What's the latest on the NY Jets injuries?
Saleh told reporters that Tippmann suffered a knee injury during the Buccaneers game. He is expected to be out a couple of weeks, but the Jets are optimistic that he will be ready for Week 1.
This likely ends any chances of the rookie securing a starting job, but it's certainly good news that he avoided any major injury. Expect Connor McGovern to start at center, with Tippmann serving as one of the team's primary backup interior offensive linemen.
Abanikanda suffered a thigh injury in that same game. Although there was initial concern that the rookie running back had sustained a major injury, the Jets expect Abanikanda to be back within a couple of weeks. He could also be ready for Week 1.
Starting left tackle Duane Brown is expected to be activated off the PUP list this week. Saleh told reporters that Brown is in Houston getting evaluated, and if he passes all the required tests, he will return to practice this week.
Vera-Tucker and Tomlinson have been sidelined with minor injuries, but both players returned to team drills during Tuesday's practice. They will be available for the Jets' preseason finale against the New York Giants on Saturday.
Lawson remains sidelined with a back injury that has cost him significant time this summer. The Jets remain hopeful that he will be ready for Week 1, but they aren't in any hurry to rush him back.
Wide receiver Corey Davis is still absent due to a "personal matter," while tight end Kenny Yeboah suffered a hamstring injury against the Buccaneers and will miss a couple of weeks.
As for Breece Hall, the Jets don't plan to play him against the Giants on Saturday (along with Dalvin Cook), but he once again participated in team drills during Tuesday's padless practice.
Some mostly positive injury updates for the Jets following a few scares this past weekend.
