Jenkins Out for Year After Reinjuring Knee

Posted by Nick Gallo on September 14, 2010 – 2:03 pm

Nose tackle Kris Jenkins, said Jets head coach Rex Ryan, is out for the season after reinjuring his left knee in the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

“Obviously it’s going to be a huge blow for us,” Ryan said in subdued tones at his news conference today at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center. “I just feel really bad for Kris, a guy that rehabbed that injury everyday and worked at it.”

“We lost a heck of a football player. The thing is we did overcome him last year. The defense rallied around the guys that were out there — Sione [Pouha], Mike DeVito. We talk that it’s about the unit; it’s not just the individual.. We just have to step up.”

Ryan’s big man in the middle worked incredibly hard this offseason to recover from a torn left anterior cruciate ligament that he suffered against the Buffalo Bills in Game 6 last season. But midway through the second series of the first regular-season game, on a 3-yard run by FB LaRon McClain, he reinjured the same knee.

Jenkins, who was drafted out of the University of Maryland is a four time Pro Bowl selection (2002, 2003, 2006 and 2008), and made the All-Pro team in 2002, 2003 and 2008. For his career he has 278 tackles and 24 sacks, all while being known as one of the most imposing presences along the line of scrimmage in the NFL.

“He is a physical mismatch against anybody that he plays against,” Ryan said. “Not too many people walking the face of the earth are like that. Just a big powerful man that is athletic. And it’s hard to block one on one, impossible really.”

Ryan said he talked with Jenkins minute before he began his news conference. “He’s down,” Rex said, adding that no surgery has been scheduled yet and he thought Jenkins could “come through” the setback.

The coach reiterated that one player does not determine the outcome for an entire team and that defensive tackles Sione “Bo” Pouha and Mike DeVito played outstandingly in Jenkins’ stead last season and again Monday night as the Ravens’ ground game was held to 49 yards on 35 carries.

    OUCH! Our second loss in as many days. But as Coach Rex Ryan said, it’s about the unit, not the individual. Last year, Sione Pouha and Mike Devito played great in Kris Jenkins’ absence, and Pouha was great again last night recovering 2 fumbles! Obviously not the way we wanted to start our 2010 campaign after such high hopes and expectations, but one game doesn’t make a season and a season isn’t lost based on just one game. The good teams recover from situations like this and the JETS are just that – a good team. Jenkins will be there to cheer us on the rest of the way…GO J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

    I feel sad to have lost him so early to a serious injury, we have seen our last play’s with Jenkins as a Jet. and that is tough we needed him this yr.all the best to him in his recovery.

    What a surprise he’s hurt yet again. In three years he hasn’t made it through a season. I said in the spring Tanwoody who wanted to save money…he was the guy they should have gotten rid of…a huge bust. We finished #1 on D last year without him we will do it again. The real issue is Tanwoody should have kept Faneca and Feely now that would make a difference especially last night.
    While I agree that Shotty made things more complicated last night than necessary Sanchez could not get it done against a JV secondary missing its 2 best DB’s Reed and Foxworthy and minus 3 starters what a joke. Sanchez was intent on dumping off the ball something he obviously learned this offseason. One more game like this and it will be time to play someone else.

    As upset as I am over this for my own selfish reasons as a Jet fan who wants to see my team win, I feel really bad for Kris. He worked like a dog to rehab that knee and get into better physical shape so he could be at his best this season. Now you have to question if he’ll even be able to play again.

    Kris is the Anti-Haynesworth. He’s all heart and leaves it all on the field. I really hope he can recover from this.

    We should get Haynesworth for this year…even though he is not a 3-4 NT I gurantee you he would play for rex…let him do amazing this year and trade him for a 1st round pick this offseason…

    Unless they are telling Sanchez to pass deep once in a while and he is refusing, the problem is Shottenheimer, not Sanchez.

    Sanchez is not great but he was adequate last year when they let him play normally, and he might learn something if he actually played the game.

    If they put in Brunell or someone else, and they keep playing 1930′s offensive football, and Shon Greene keeps melting down, it won’t make any difference.

    Kris jenkins injury is truly a blow but the defensive scheme is a good one when followed. I’m a believer in rex’s d fence and players buying into it. So while kris’s injury is a raw deal,the joker and quite a few aces will suit me just fine. *Real Jet Fan

    Frank that’s lame, Jenkins is a bust now? Amazing how everyone YOU don’t like are busts and waste of money. But guys you like don’t ever get ripped by you. I have yet to hear the bust word out of you for YOUR gem, VG. Oh and Favre, THAT WAS MONEY WELL SPENT!! When he’s injured it’s all on the coaches why we failed, but Jenkins, who dominates inside when he’s healthy, he is a waste of money and a bust…. hypocrite? I think so. Faneca and Feely would have made a difference last night? Really? Because Folk was so bad, he missed how many kicks? Faneca, the swinging door, would have done what? Oh, he would have made us rush for 100′s of yards? He would have been able to help Brick block, when he couldn’t pass block to save his own life last year? Right…. dream on pal. Our problems were Schottenhiemer and Sanchez on offense, too many stupid penalties, and the D not getting off the field when they have them in third and long.
    And BTW, for someone else in here. I believe I was told I was crazy for saying we should pick up Jamal Williams as an inexpensive platoon guy to rotate in and out with Jenkins. He would look pretty good in there right now.

    Terrible news on Jenkins, we lost a leader on the team. Going back to our anemic offense for a second. While I think Sanchez has tons of growing up to do I place a large chunk of blame of Schotty. Since 2006 we have not had a single 300+yd passing game. How can you be a superbowl contender if you can’t pass for over 300 yards in a single game? Open the playbook up we have the recievers!!!

  18. By dougmc on Sep 14, 2010 | Reply

    If Haynesworth wants out of Redskins we should think about it.He’s trouble , but quite a physical specimen. Pouha is really good but beyond that it’s Kroul. Schotty needs to be less razzle-dazzle and get some good protection schemes and let Sanchez pick the open receiver on the passing tree.That was a real nice pass to Keller when Edwards wasn’t set. He has the ability…let him play. Biggest mistake last night was with 1:40 left on clock before half we didn’t call time-out and just let them kick field goal try. Instead we let clock run and put in exotic kick block play with your best receiver(Edwards) coming up middle where he could easily get hurt and he runs into kicker (barely) and they get 1st down and eventually a T.D. with no time on clock.Horrible management.

    I knew as soon as I saw the replay that Kris would be lost for the year, that is just a shame considering how much time he put in to his rehab. As for this debacle of a game? As bad as Cromartie and Wilson played this game was lost by two people and two people ONLY! Mark Sanchez and Brian Shottenheimer PERIOD!! Shottenheimer for his horrible play calling and Sanchez for not even executing the horrible plays that were called. I watched Philip Rivers in that late game last night, and even though they lost the game I was in awe of how much courage, spirit, and leadership, he puts in to each and every drive that he has the ball, yes, they were stopped on their final drive but he gave SD a chance to win at the end and that is all you can ask for Sanchez did not do that last night, there was never a doubt in my mind that he would not lead the team down field to at least have a chance to win, and that is just not acceptable. He has a long,long way to go just to become an average QB in this league, no matter how much Rex or anyone else raves about how he has worked in the off season, it does not translate on to the field. Almost any other QB in the league would have given us a chance to win that game at the end! know there will be some of you who are very pro Sanchez who will probably disagree, sorry, but I am pro JETS!!

    this is 1999 Vinny all over again. I remember how excited I was that year for football. I set my whole day up to watch the opener and before I even had my first beer finished Vinny was done for the season and so was the team. I think mid way through the 1st 1/4 it happened that year. Last night Jenkins lasted 6 plays? I feel bad for Jenkins. He seems like a good guy and I feel terribly for Jets fans. We are taking it on the chin today and I am sure Francessa is blasting away on the fan. In some sense Rex set us up for this, but he is who he is. At least the franchise matters, but this has been a brutal week so far for the Jets. The reporter non-sense, the loss, and Jenkins. Some star to our magical season. Oooff.

    I said it the other day and I will say it again, Schotty may be a great person and QB coach, but he has a terribly grasp on play calling. A few more weeks like last night and I say we turn over play calling to Callahan or Cavanaugh and see what happens.

    I don’t know how I feel about Haynseworth coming into playing as a Jet. I think Jamal Williams could have been a good pick up. The Problem we have here is Schotty for YEARS we have watched him be BEYOND conservative and he does nothing to help our QBs out. To me the QBs have always seem shackled in a nickel and dime offense that constantly Dinks and Dunks. Bring Coles back and run some 3 or 4 WR Sets. Open the field up and let Sanchez go for it. Let him learn from his mistakes. Haynesworth is a crybaby as good of a player as he is , I don’t know if he is the answer to this problem. Maybe he would like to play for Rex? But another head ache is something Rex doesn’t need right now.

    Losing Kris just hurts.I knew he was gone once i saw that play in slow mo,that was a nasty fall.The JETS need to pick him up by winning it this year,that should become the motivation now,get that man a ring.I think it is safe and sad to say his career is behind him now,after considering retirement last season.
    The loss stung equally,no way did the ravens beat the JETS.The Jets clearly beat themselves.That’s all i can say.Focus of the pats next.
    That all being said,Pouha and Devito did do a great job last year,but that was then and this is now.Pouha is a great end and Devito is a solid back up,it is early enough in the season to make a move and go out and get a solid starting NT. Kris is the tip of the spear and the big push on D,we can not replace that with out a similar player. In conclusion,i’m not to bumbed about thee loss whether you play 16 or 162 losing the first game of a season in the new house means nothing.Just look at the 2009 Yankees.Nothing changes the JETS must win the Super Bowl….BEFORE GREAT SUCCESS COMES GREAT STRUGGLE !!!

    Where are the real Jets fans? I hope that Jenks gets a speedy recovery. As i read these post I wonder how in the world the offensive lack of everything was Shotty’s fault? Sanchez wasn’t the only one playing poorly. I guess it was shotty’s fault that Keller ran out of bounce a yard short of the first down. I guess it was shotty’s fault that Shon Greene had two fumbles and a drop pass. Please, it’s the players who need to step up and play like million dollars athletes. I guess it was shotty’s fault that both the offense and defense had 14 penalties. Wow. Where are the real Jets fans?

    Tough loss, and a shame we lost big Jenks as well. Look, our D dealt with this same situation last year. This year we will be in top 5 in defense. Not a huge fan of Sanchise, but let’s look at some positives. He faced the 2nd best D in the league. ( I know Ed Reed was not playing) Last year sanchez stared down receivers which led to many pick sixes. This year,(1) he is checking down, looking off receivers to ward off safeties.. That’s a good thing.(2) he is sliding feet first, (3) he has no fumbles/int’s vs. a REX RYAN built defense! Having J-Co drop the pass on third and short didn’t help. Having Edwards called for illegal shift after a long completion to Dustin didn’t help either! Oh yeah, let’s not forget how the O- line was stellar at pass protection and run blocking! Stop bashing the kid and Schotty when there were veteran players out there making mental mistakes, not helping Sanchez out! It also doesn’t help when our Defense GAVE Baltimore NUMEROUS extended drives due to mindless inexcuseable PENALTIES!

    1 Rex why is Wilson a rookie covering Boldin all game? BAD COACHING! Revis should be covering Boldin THATS WHY HE GETS PAID ALL THE MONEY TO COVER THERE BEST. Even if Revis was not in game shape Cromartie should have been on Boldin & Revis should have been on Mason at least! Wislson should have covered Houshmanzeda who has been on the team a week & doesnt even know the full play book bad job of coaching. 2 Schotty your play calling stinks try something different for once! 3 I have defended this kid for 2 years but now its over SANCHEZ STEP UP YOU ARE NOT A ROOKIE ANYMORE! 4 The refs called a bad game the flag on Wilson that gave them 1st & goal on the 1 was not a flag he didnt touch him!there was another play Ray Lewis had a face mask & a horse collar on the same play in front of the ref & they did not call it. The refs had a REALLY BAD GAME. The O better get fixed & get fixed quick or we are going to get spanked by the pats this week.

    Nobody is blaming the refs in this game? Why didn’t Rex challenge that saftey, fumble, and possible touchdown in which the refs gift wrapped the ball for Balitmore on the 1 yard line?

    In a 3rd and 28 situation, there was minimal hand contact. Does this warrant 1st and 5?

    There were situations where the Jets recievers were locked up in Baltimores arms and the refs didn’t call anything.

    Did anybody notice at the end of the game, Baltimore got a first down by about a foot, and the refs wrongly spotted it 3rd and inches, which gave Baltimore another 45 seconds to runn off the clock?

    In my life I’ve seen a lot of Jet games decided over iffy calls, but this one takes the cake. If we can come this close without big Jenks, despite all of the ref’s blunders, theres still hope. Lets forget about all the hype now, regroup, and quietly petition to the league last nights aweful officiating.

    Next week the Jets should line Revis up opposite Moss, and Cromartie on welker. I don’t know what the coaches see in Kyle. He was torched on many occasions last night… And when a receiver passed him up, he held on for dear life getting flagged several times. He was out of position many times, as we saw Leonhard walk over to him after a blown coverage explainging where he has to be. KYLE looked lost last night! Flacco only threw to Revis’ side twice. Revis was flagged once, and the other was incomplete. Tom Brady is smarter and has more experience than Flacco. He too will RIP Kyle apart. In my opinion, Kyle Wilson should be a nickel or dime package db. Not an every down man to man db. In other words Tanny, he is not a young Revis… Don’t insult Darrelle like that! He probably should be on special teams returning punts as he does possess good speed!If Flacco can expose Cromartie and Wilson, what do u think Brady will do?

    Did any Jets fan really expect Kris Jenkins to last the entire season? He’s a best when healthy but this is football and injury’s happen. Vinny Testaverde? Really? Was KJ hurt last year during SB run?? YES. Thomas Jones? Really? How did he do in the second half against Indy after Shonn went out??? How about Sanchez, how did he play against Indy? Threw the ball damn well! Bring the kid RB Washington off the practice squad, he’s a bull rusher, maybe add Coles but just throw the damn ball, time to take the huggies off!!!

    I agree. Don’t sign Haynesworth, bring Chauncey back, the guy is a good straight forward runner and in my opinion looked better than Greene in the pre-season. I see they re-signed Clowney. I think that was a good move and I’m hoping this means that more passing will be coming. Let Sanchez play dangit, he can make plays.

    Granted jenkins got hurt,defensively we got whipped by ourselves and the ref’s. Every1′s gettn on sanchez like he’s the second coming of richard todd or ken o’brien. Don’t discredit the fact that we playd a mirror image of our own d-fence. Everyone knew it was gonna be a bar room brawl so ya had to know or ya shoulda knew there wasn’t gonna be an offensive explosion. Tweaking the play calling would be great,but everybody playing at or above contract level would be outstanding. I have no worries about my team and if after 1 game u do then yur not a true jet fan. We have more relevance now than any time as of recent so on to week 2. Go JETS

    It’s a shame how Jenkins went out, but….Things happen. The way he went out was pretty bad and i think he is washed-up! He got hurt because he got blown back by the guard. Hie is too big to get pushed back like that. If he was pushing that guy back i’ll bet he would not have been hurt, you can count on that…Anyway, we have two guys that did an awesome job last year: pouha , Devito and Kroul all those guys don’t equal to his salary. Don’t fret only one game. Also those recievers are just too slow for my liking. They don’t get open having Sanches to just “throw ‘em up dogs” is not going to work a lot.

    I have to say, Kris is a huge loss (no pun intended). Jenk, you will be missed, again. However bad it looked, we have to keep in mind that they played the Ravens last night, and the Ravens’ run d is as tough if not tougher than the Jets’ D. So, against other teams, I see no reason why the O won’t be more successful. They’ll be able to run more effectively, which SHOULD allow Schott to open the playbook up and let Mark throw.
    A few promising notes, though
    1. LT clearly still has some gas in the tank. He broke a couple last night, which is a good sign. Shonn clearly won’t have to bear as much of the running burden if LT can keep that up.
    2. Jason Taylor looked strong on run defense. He should fill in quite well until Pace gets back, and even then he will be a good mainstay in the defensive rotation.
    3. Bryan Thomas was a big deal last night. He’s finally turned into the player they hoped for.
    4. Shaun Ellis played one heck of a game. The man isn’t showing his age at all yet.
    DeVito and Pouha did a great job last year filling in for Jenk; even if Mike T. doesn’t make a move, they will be more than alright with those two and Ellis on the line.
    I’ll say it again – other teams aren’t the Ravens. New England is a pure passing team – no running game, especially now that they traded Maroney. Kyle Wilson should be able to take a nickel role now with Revis on Moss and Cromartie on Welker.

    all during the 2010 draft I repeatedly commented on a need for a NT, I feared then this may happen given his age and seriousness of last seasons’ injury, yet so many of you wanted big name receivers and such and weren’t interested in solidifying the D line, now after one game we face the same situation as last season, who cares if someone can step up, when KJ isnt in there they run a different D, so once again their playing with a bandaid on a wound they didn’t take care of when they could and should have, Im not trying to infer they could have found someone in the same class as KJ in the draft, but definitely should have addressed this issue in the off season.

    Very bad break for Jenkins, and not very smart of the Jets to rely so much on him. As several of us said last year, the odds on a 360-pound vet (and that’s his good playing weight) recovering fully from that kind of injury and staying on the field are slim. As for Sanchez and Schotty, I’ll give them this year but no more. Another season with the zero-sum offense and Schotty must go and Sanchez must be put up against several QBs and really earn the job. If he doesn’t earn it, it’s a mistake that we’ll have to write off unless we want to waste the careers of players like Mangold, Holmes, Harris, and Revis. If you woulda told me last January that after our first game of ’10 I’d be thinking, “Wonder if we shoulda picked up Vick…”

    Nothing but the best to ya Jenks, but they are going to unload you as fast as they can. Thank you for being a Jet!

    While I’m sorry to hear that Jenkins is out for the season and I wish him a full and speedy recovery, the Jets need to address the NT position. I’m sure Pouha will do a good job in the middle, but the entire front seven will have to step up their play. Perhaps they could bring back Howard Green, who was released by Washington. I noticed the Jets claimed Marcus Dixon off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys. Is he more of a DE or a NT? I’m not sure if Tevaseu is ready to come off the practice squad and make a contribution. I would also consider bringing back DE Douglas who was released by Miami. I have a silly question. Why did the Jets resign WR Clowney if QB Sanchez isn’t going to throw the deep ball and stretch the defenses.

    Good post Dre! I don’t like the final score of last nights game,but it didn’t seem unfathomable. The bummer is the team couldn’t live up to the Jets off-season hype,against a very good Ravens team. However, that does not mean that we are doomed! We are who we always have been. A team with a second year quarterback, lots of potential offensive weapons and thankfully a very strong defense that could not contain the Ravens all night. Let’s regroup, lick our wounds, learn from our mistakes and win some football games this season. And when every nay sayer calms down, hopefully we will qualify for the playoffs. Then maybe, we can start talking SB! First step, beat the stinkin Pats, GO JETS!

    I admit I was, like all Jet fans, disappointed at last night’s results. Losing KJ was a blow, but SP and MD along with the rest of the D did a great job. (49yds on 35 carries). Let’s look at the positive side of this debacle. With all the penalties, not running or passing effectively, the turnovers and some questionable calls by the refs, the Jets were in the game till the end. They lost by a point! I agree with Dre, they played a mirror image of their defense and came up short. That being said, drive killing penalties and sloppy play needs to be corrected as I’m sure it will. The Jets got a wake up call last night. If they were to lose any game out of the first four, this was it. If they can win the next three, they’ll be 3-0 in the division which is more important. So be positive Jet fans!

    Big jenks was the man when in Carolina he gave us maybe 3/4 of 1 season and maybe 10-11 games in the last 3 for what I believe was $60million I love the guy and wish him and his family all the best as it stands with us he hasn’t panned out sorry .. Forget Haynesworth he’s a headache we can do without ..

    Howard Green signed today so thats a good thing. I really have no issues with this defense.

    The Offense is horrible and not due to lack of talent.

    Sanchez and Schotty need to get this figured out quick.

    This upcoming season isn’t looking too good for us, the jets really have to work on their defense, especially the secondary. They can still stop the run game but not the pass, hopefully they can step up and play well this sunday.

    Tom Spicer, were you not watching the game? Wilson got Pass interference on Houshmanzadeh to put them on the 1 yard line that eventually led to the TD. Yes I agree that Revis should’ve been on Boldin, but when you have 3 pretty damn good receivers it doesnt matter who’s on who if you’re making stupid obvious fouls like that.

    RyGuy, aside from stupid fouls there’s nothing wrong with the Jets’ defense. The offense was under 100 yards passing which is horrible. Shotty didnt let Sanchez loose, and Sanchez made poor decisions by rushing things and not letting the play develop when he has the time his O-line gives him, not to mention the receivers failing him with dropped passes that were easily catchable.

    I agree with Matt about the D and the rabbi about the refs, but even with the refs Rex looked clueless. That Ravens fumble on the punt at the goal line was either a safety or a TD, what is the rationale for not challenging that call? As for Edwards’ “running into the kicker, ” it should been called Sliding Slightly Into the Kicker and Touching His Ankle, Whereupon the Kicker Put on a Big Act. The pass int on Revis in the end zone was also complete nonsense, nothing that would ever have been called in previous years. Calls like those make me wonder if some of these refs are on the take.

    Sorry, that was supposed to be the pass int on Wilson in the end zone. Freudian slip because the pass int on Revis was questionable, too.

    Good Luck Big Kris Jenkins, One of my favorite players and a heck of a guy. Gonna miss you again this season Get well, and don’t give up…

    To you Haynesworth people, He doesn’t want to play in a 3-4 D in Washington what makes you think he would want to play a 3-4 D in NY?? He also doesn’t have what it takes to be a Jet. I agree we need to take more shots down field and can’t do that with all of the checkdowns. It is just week 1 there is a lot of football to go, have faith people. Go Jets!!

    Do not sign Haynesworth! What a baby who doesn’t want to play in the 3-4!

    Rex needs to put more in coverage until Wilson and Cromartie are on board!
