Jets Place Antwan Barnes on Season-Ending IR

Wesley Hitt

Well that's disappointing. After suffering an injury vs. the Atlanta Falcons Monday night, the initial diagnosis was that it would not be that serious, but today, the Jets have placed OLB Antwan Barnes on season-ending Injured Reserve.

In the offseason GM John Idzik signed Barnes to a three year, $4M contract, so this is not the last we'll see of him in a Jets uniform. Barnes had been a good pick-up for the Jets, providing a speed rusher element to any already stout defensive front and recording two sacks and three tackles this season.

The Jets have re-signed OLB Ricky Sapp to the active roster to replace Barnes. They have also signed defensive tackle Terence Barnes to the practice squad after releasing DT Junior Aumavae on Tuesday.
