The embattled New York Jets’ offensive line continues to lose bodies, and the domino effect is taking its toll. Guard Alex Lewis is the latest Jet to go down, and it’s the same injury that has sidelined Sam Darnold for the last two weeks.
Lewis suffered a sprained AC joint this past Sunday. Head coach Adam Gase described it as, “multiple issues with the shoulder, I’d say right now he’s week-to-week, we’ll kind of see how this progresses as we enter this week and see what his status is going to be.”
The Jets have already been without rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton (shoulder). Tackle Chuma Edoga suffered a calf injury in the 24-0 loss in Miami., His status is up in the air.
Gase said he is hopeful that Becton is close after he participated in Friday’s practice on a limited basis. He can then increase his massive rookie’s practice time this week in the hopes that he can play Sunday vs. the Buffalo Bills.
The line is just part of the offensive package that has been crumbling at the seams. The Jets are averaging a league-worst 12.5 points per game. They have lost games by an average of 18.3 points per game, which is also worst in the NFL.
