Jets head coach Todd Bowles indicated wide receiver and return man Lucky Whitehead has suffered a broken foot

On if Whitehead will be out for the year…

I don’t know if he’s out for the year but I know he’s out for a little while.

On if the team will try and acquire a returner given Whitehead’s injury…

We still got a couple guys we want to look at and then as we get down in it, if we don’t see what we want we’ll look for one.

On if Whitehead needs surgery…

I’m not sure yet, they’re still checking him out.

On how long Whitehead will be out…

It’s still undetermined. They’re still checking him out.

Whitehead was part of the mix in the returner competition. The Jets recently picked him up from the Cowboys off waivers.

As Bowles indicated, this is an opportunity for some other guys to step up in his place and win the job.
