New York Jets Nose Tackle Kris Jenkins Out for Season With Torn ACL

Kris Jenkins’ season lasted less than one game.

According to ESPN.com New York, the, Jets’ nose tackle will have season-ending surgery on his ACL.

Jenkins was hurt Monday night in a first-quarter pileup just six plays into the game against the Ravens. He did not return, and an MRI on Tuesday revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Jenkins, 31, played in only six games last season due to another ACL injury, which was repaired last October using a tendon from his hamstring.

Without Jenkins, the Jets’ depth again will again be tested this season. They already lost backup defensive tackle Ropati Pitoitua to a torn Achilles’ tendon in the preseason.
