Busy Monday Ahead of Jets-Bucs Game

NFL: New York Jets at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

There was plenty of news on Monday regarding the Jets' upcoming game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and we discuss it on the podcast today.

The league officially announced the suspension of Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. There were reports last week that a suspension was coming. The Jets did not deny those reports, but Kerley was able to suit up for Thursday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Now the four game suspension is official. The first game Kerley misses will be Sunday against Tampa Bay. What does this mean for the Jets. With one receiver out, it is an opportunity for other players to step up.

The Jets probably were not happy about losing Kerley, but Tampa Bay had a worse Monday. Jameis Winston is out of the game against the Jets. Tampa Bay decided to shut down their franchise quarterback, who has been dealing with injury concerns. The Bucs also saw their top receiver Mike Evans suspended for an incident in Sunday's game against New Orleans. That means old friend Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Sunday possibly without Evans depending on a potential appeal. We discuss it.
