Jets S Marcus Maye suffered a broken thumb during Sunday's win over the Colts, reports SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
According to Vacchiano, the team is still evaluating the extent of the injury. Maye missing three-to-four weeks is a reasonable estimate, adds Vacchiano, but is far from a certainty.
Vacchiano adds that there is some hope that if Maye heals quickly and can tolerate the pain, he may be able to play with a cast on (Maye was wearing a cast after Sunday's game).
Maye, who left Sunday's game in the third quarter due to the injury, has 15 tackles, one forced fumble, and one interception in three games this season.
His injury is another hit to a Jets secondary currently without Buster Skrine (concussion).
With their defense battered a bit, the Jets have given up 400 or more yards in their last three games.
