The Jets recently signed kicker Kyle Brindza. He will not kick with the Jets this season, however. He ruptured his Achilles tendon.
As cliche as it sounds.... a minor set back for a major come back. I have worked my tail off to get another shot and I got it, but now I have to take a step back. I ruptured my Achilles completely during my kicking workout. I'm not mad. I'm not upset. Unfortunate? Yes. I know God has a plan and I have to trust it. This is just another chapter to my story. Time to get this thing fixed and start the road to recovery. . Day 1 starts today! #Day1 #Dominate
Brindza had more the profile of a camp body than somebody seriously expected to compete for the kicker job. I was guessing he would not even make it to training camp if the Jets drafted a kicker late or signed a priority undrafted free agent. Still, you never want to see something like this. Hopefully Brindza has a full recovery.
