Jim Leonhard Suffers Leg Injury, Out for Season

Jim Leonhard was injured today during practice in a collision with wide receiver Patrick Turner. The exact injury has not been confirmed yet, but he was carted off the practice field and it is assumed to be either a broken shin or leg.

This injury is HUGE news and a major loss for the team, defensively and in special teams. Jerricho Cotchery will be taking over as the punt returner and we may also see two-deep punt return packages including Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie. I'll have more news for you Jets fans as time develops.

UPDATE: According to Jets beat writer Manish Mehta, Jim Leonhard will indeed miss the rest of the season.
