The season opener for the Jets in 2020 wasn’t pretty. Let’s take a look at the snap totals.
We will start with the offensive side of the ball.
Notably for the Jets, Le’Veon Bell left the game with a hamstring injury. In his place Frank Gore and Josh Adams split the other running back snaps in half (although Gore had a few before Bell’s injury). It will be interesting to see how playing time is divided once La’Mical Perine returns from an ankle injury if Bell’s injury forces him to miss additional time.
Now for the defensive side of the ball.
Starting cornerback Pierre Desir was benched in the second quarter of the game. He was replaced by Nate Hairston. Hairston played the rest of the way. Unfortunately for the Jets, he didn’t prove to be much of an upgrade. A starting corner spot is up in the air for next week.
Additionally Blake Cashman was injured after 3 snaps. Harvey Langi went the rest of the way at linebacker.
What do you notice about playing time in yesterday’s loss?
