New York Jets Injury Analysis – Season Preview and Attaochu Injury History

Ketul Shah looks at Jeremiah Attaochu’s injury history and gives other updates on the New York Jets roster…

With a week prior the season debut on Monday Night Football, the Jets completed training camp relatively unscathed with major injuries only to Eli McGuire and Ben Ijalana. I wrote about McGuire’s injury here and was skeptical he’d be ready for the season. The Jets have went on and placed McGuire on the IR, making him eligible to return Week 9 the earliest. Ijalana went on the IR from season ending shoulder surgery and if more details emerge, another write up will certainly be on the way detailing the injury and rehab process.

New York Jets Injury Analysis – Elijah McGuire’s Fractured Foot

Ketul Shah breaks down the Elijah McGuire’s injury, how it impacts the backfield and when the New York Jets can expect him back…

As training camp begun, the Jets experienced their first casualty with RB Elijah McGuire suffering a fracture foot that will require surgery later this week. It has been reported that he will miss 3-6 weeks however I am very skeptical of that time frame as a fracture takes at least 6-8 weeks for the bone to completely heal. The basics of rehabilitation include facilitating normal walking mechanics, restoring strength, and initiating football-related activities.
