NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi reports that Jets NT Kris Jenkins will miss the rest of the season with a left knee injury.
Jenkins was injured during the second quarter of Sunday’s overtime loss to the Bills after several players landed on his legs during a running play. Jenkins’ left leg was heavily wrapped after the game, and he left the stadium on crutches, according to The Associated Press.
According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, Jenkins tore the ACL in the knee, but had no other damage in the knee and is expected to make a full recovery.
Jenkins, the centerpiece in the middle of the Jets’ defense, earned his fourth Pro Bowl appearance in 2008, his first season with the team.
