Muhammad Wilkerson left today's game against the Bills in the second half with what appeared to be a serious leg injury. Wilkerson appeared to be struggling to put any weight on the leg. Todd Bowles said in his postgame press conference that Wilkerson suffered a broken leg.

All season long it felt like the Jets dodged the injury bullet. There were numerous times when a key contributor went down with what looked like a serious injury only to be back in the lineup shortly. Their luck ran out in the season finale today. Wilkerson's injury was the cherry on top of a rough afternoon.

Wlkerson is set to become a free agent after the season, although the Jets do retain the option to franchise him. That seems likely if the two sides cannot work out a new deal.
