It's official. Kris Jenkins is done for the season with a torn ACL. He will be placed on injured reserve, officially ending his season, and dealing a potential death blow to the defense. Jenkins cannot be replaced in the defense, but there is enough talent for them to still be good. The problem is, the way Sanchez is playing right now, they may have to be an elite defense to win games.
Don't be surprised if DT Howard Green is brought back. He was let go to make room for Danny Woodhead. Clearly, the Jets need to bring someone in to help add more depth, even if it's too late to bring in anyone significant. Sione Pouha, who got a lot of playing time last week, will now be a full-time starter, but others will certainly take turns at the nose. Even Vernon Gholston played a few plays at DT.
