New York Jets safety Ashtyn Davis, guard Greg Van Roten and safety Bennett Jackson may miss the rest of the season via injury.
Rookie safety Ashtyn Davis, guard Greg Van Roten and veteran safety Bennett Jackson may all miss the remainder of the season due to injury. New York Jets head coach Adam Gase made the announcement on his regularly-scheduled Monday conference call with reporters.
Ashtyn Davis has a foot injury. He may be out for the rest of the season, per Adam Gase. Greg Van Roten and Bennett Jackson as well. #TakeFlight

Davis, 24, left the Jets’ heartbreaking 31-28 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders at MetLife Stadium with a foot injury. After chasing around tight end Darren Waller all first half, the Cal product was initially questionable to return, but he never did emerge from the locker room.
Jackson, 29, is suddenly needed as a depth piece. The Hazlet, NJ native is currently dealing with a hamstring. His absence, coupled with Davis’s, means Matthias Farley, a man who found himself on the field during the already-infamous Henry Ruggs III miracle, will see playing time increase alongside Marcus Maye.
Van Roten, 30, is the final man of the trio who may miss the rest of the campaign. He injured his toe in the loss, something that was spotted when trainers were checking out his leg on the sideline.
The new-looking New York Jets (sans Gregg Williams) have four games remaining on the schedule. Next up will be Jamal Adams and the Seattle Seahawks, a team coming off a horrendous loss to the New York Giants.
