NEW YORK (AP) — New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon will be out indefinitely with a broken rib and guard Brian Winters has a dislocated shoulder that will likely end his season.
Herndon made his season debut Sunday, catching one pass for 7 yards in the Jets' 34-27 win over the Giants.
The second-year tight end was suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and then was sidelined four more with a hamstring injury.
Coach Adam Gase said Monday that the injury is in a spot where it could get worse if Herndon continues to play. Herndon had X-rays at MetLife Stadium after the game and a CT scan Monday, revealing the extent of the injury.
Winters was hurt in the third quarter Sunday and was replaced by Tom Compton. The right guard injured his shoulder in the preseason opener and missed time during training camp.
