The Jets had offensive line news heading into their Week 11 meeting with the Washington Redskins and then left the 34-17 win with a bit more.
On Saturday, the Jets placed center Ryan Kalil on their injured reserve list, ending his season. A day prior, New York head coach Adam Gase didn't sound like that was going to happen as he said on Friday that Kalil did not have any sort of setback after missing two-straight games due to a knee injury.
Gase addressed that roster move for the first time on Monday but was mostly mum on the decision.
"That was just a decision that was made. I don't really have any further details on that," Gase said.
But the coach is impressed with his replacement, Jonotthan Harrison.
"Jonotthan's done well the last couple of games. Really it's just picking off where he left off. His knowledge of the offense is greater than what it was when we first started in the spring," Gase said. "He's done a good job of playing fast and his communication has been outstanding."
Kalil, 34, exits what might be his lone season with the Jets ranked as the 33rd best center in the NFL via Pro Football Focus' grading system, as the former All-Pro who came out of retirement to join the Jets has struggled this year. In that same respect, the analytics outlet ranked Harrison slightly better at 25th.
While not exactly addressing Kalil's situation, Gase did provide some positive into Kelvin Beachum and Chuma Edoga. Both players were dinged up against the Redskins and there was a positive outlook for them.
Gase confirmed that the veteran in Beachum re-injured his same ankle he already hurt this year, but it's not as bad of an injury as before. Gase expects Beachum to practice this upcoming week.
"We'll see how the week goes, I think he's in better shape than he was the first time. I do think that he feels better as far as being able to practice this week," Gase said.
On the rookie, Edoga is considered "day-to-day" and Gase confirmed an MRI took place on his ankle and knee on Monday. But the outlook is still positive.
"It's a little bit of an ankle-knee, but we're optimistic that we have an opportunity for him to be able to come back this week. We'll kind of just see how he feels each day," Gase said.
