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.

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.

If he does, indeed, miss time, rookie Cameron Clark could finally get his first look of the season. If not him, veteran Josh Andrews or Conor McDermott could slide in at right guard.

Too bad for Davis he was starting to find his footing in this league and he is a older player bad injury but i expect the Jets to draft a SS and FS in the draft its a draft of need in this point. GVR also the same thing and both good news for the tank but im not rooting for players to get hurt just because they lose on the field. But i do wish Adam Gase gets ban from all NFL teams i would not wish him on the Dolphins and Patriots and Bills he is that bad… Read more »
