J. Leonhard might have suffered a PCL tear in his right knee (US Presswire).

By Josh Katzowitz

For the second season in a row, it appears that Jets safety Jim Leonhard has suffered a season-ending injury.

That’s what Rapid Reporter Lisa Zimmerman has confirmed, writing that Leonhard is feared to have suffered a PCL tear in his right knee. He’ll undergo an MRI on Monday to make the final determination.

Leonhard was injured in the second quarter of the Jets win against the Chiefs after he intercepted a Tyler Palko pass. As soon as the play was complete, Leonhard needed to be helped off the field -- without putting any weight on his right leg -- and carted away to the locker room.

After the game, cornerback Darrelle Revis told reporters that the rumor on the sideline during the game was that Leonhard had suffered a season-ending injury during his interception.

It’s the same leg Leonhard broke late last year during a Jets practice that kept him out the rest of the season.

"I'm hopeful it's not too bad," coach Rex Ryan told reporters after the game. "But it's never good when you need help coming off (the field)."

Brodney Pool plays in probably 40% of the defensive snaps as it is. Although Jim is solid, makes very few mistakes, Pool is more athletic that Leonhard is and the Jets should be fine without him (they were ok last year). They are going to miss his defensive playcalling more than anything, but with the experience from last year's late season and playoff run Eric Smith should be able to handle this transition smoothly

Don't know if this wil directly impact the Eagles game next week.  Andy likes to throw the ball, and I'm afraid with this injury to the Jets secondary it may make him more tempted to throw instead of using our best weapon, Shady McCoy.  I would love to see an Eagle get the rushing title, have never seen it in my time and this year is our best chance at it happening.  Should be a good game, hopefully we can get Sanchez to turn the ball over a few times.

I am more concerned with losing his punt return services then his services in the secondary. Losing him there hurts, but his dependability as a punt returner is the biggest worry as he is the only person who has exhibited consistent sure hands. Kerley was good yesterday after his terrible debut against Washington so hopefully he can continue to catch the ball. He is certainly more of a threat to break a long return than Leonard, but the most important thing they need in a return man is someone who can simply catch the ball. Losing Leonard does hurt, and any Jet fan that doesn't believe that is kidding themselves, but they can overcome it, especially if Kerley proves to be a dependable return man.

If I was a Pats fan the last place I  would be is writing my thoughts about the Jets losing a saftey.  Why should you care?  The Jets are no threat to you or your Pats, so why is this even a story you would read.  You read it because of last years playoff game, and the fear that it might happen again.  It happened without Leonard last year and it could happen without him this year too.  The only reason you would care is because deep down youd rather not deal with the Jets.  I wonder if your posting on any Chief players that got hurt his week, or Jaguar players.

Leave it to a drooling chowduh monkey to be happy about a player being injured. You got lots of class tomebrady, it's all low, but you got lots of it. The reason you're so happy is because you're affraid of the Jets, and in your bloated, drunken, inbred, B.O. drenched, vomit inducing, lice riddled world, the only thing you know to do is lash out like the lowlife, nose picking, knuckle dragging, unibrowed, sister kisser that you and your ilk are. Don't get me wrong, I mean that in a nurturing and supportive way, you near human skid mark on the tighty whities of Boston. Crawl back in your hole, you dimwit.


Go Jets!!!

Rex will insert someone else, they'll come through with flying colors, Leonhard will be forgotten about after the first playoff game.... Ain't that right Jets fans?
