Manish Mehta tweets the news:

#Jets have placed Jim Leonhard on IR. Surgery successful. Full recovering expected.

Now that Leonhard is on injured reserve, he will not be able to play for the rest of the year. The Jets now have an open roster spot to sign an extra player.

Tough break for Jim. It is good news that he will recover fully for the future, though.
