Washington Placed on IR

Leon Washington's season is officially over. He was placed on Injured Reserve after breaking his fibula and tibia in yesterday's win over Oakland. He is expected to make a full recovery and is said to be in good spirits.

The Jets won't miss a beat with Shonn Greene taking Leon Washington's carries, but they will miss Washington's awesome versatility. He split out wide, took snaps in the Seminole, returned kicks, and ran the ball inside and outside. He hadn't made as many big plays this year as he had in the past, but the ability is always there, and he could always explode at any time. He will be missed, but it will be exciting seeing Greene and Sanchez in the backfield together more often.
