David Harris has been a leader on this defense for a decade now, a 2nd round selection from 2007, he has been a field general every year since.

So when he went down with an injury during our pre-season game against the Giants, it was understandable that our collective hearts jumped into our mouths. However do now fear.

According to Adam Schefter, the Jets received positive news following an MRI, with no structural damage being detected. Harris will sit out the final pre-season game, but all indications are he'll be ready for the Bengals.

With the Jets making several changes at the linebacker level, they could ill afford to lose a man with Harris's experience. He'll be a valuable leader as we try and break in players like Lee, and see improvements from players like Mauldin.

We can all now breath a sigh of relief.
