New York Jets receiver Jeremy Kerley sat out of Monday’s practice due to a concussion he suffered in Sunday’s win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.
The receiver sustained a big hit late in the second quarter, being sandwiched by Dashon Goldson and Mark Barron after an eight yard reception. Kerley played the entire game, finishing the game with three receptions for 45 yards, but wasn’t as involved in the second half. During the Jets game, and after the game, Kerley passed his concussion tests, but had concussion symptons and did not pass his concussion tests on Monday morning.
This poses a problem for the Jets, who are thin at wide receiver depth with this injury; Kerley was the Jets’ slot receiver, and he was also the Jets’ top punt returner. With Kerley out for at least two weeks, the Jets’ receivers are down to four with Stephen Hill, Clyde Gates, Ryan Spadola and Santonio Holmes.
