New York Jets safety Lamarcus Joyner may be done for the season

The New York Jets might have lost more than a game on Sunday.

A new report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport hints that starting safety Lamarcus Joyner could require season-ending surgery after opening the season with a 19-14 loss at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. Joyner joined the Jets on a one-year deal in March after seven seasons between the Raiders and Rams’ franchises.

Joyner, 30, left Sunday’s 19-14 loss to the Panthers with an elbow issue after earning a single tackle and did not return. He was relieved by Sheldrick Redwine and Adrian Colbert for the rest of the game.

The group is currently holding down the secondary fort while 2020 third-rounder Ashtyn Davis heals on injured reserve. Rapoport’s report indicates that a torn tendon in his arm will require the procedure.

The Jets (0-1) will return to action on Sunday afternoon against the New England Patriots (1 p.m. ET, CBS).
