The injuries continue to pile up for the Jets.
Jets S Doug Middleton suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Vikings and is undergoing more tests, head coach Todd Bowles said in a conference call on Monday.
A source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano that it is not as severe as the one that kept him out all of last year but will still likely end his season.
Meanwhile, Bowles remained mum on Bilal Powell, who exited Sunday's game with a neck injury, saying he has no update on his running back. He also did not say what is ailing C Spencer Long, who has a finger injury and limped off the field in the fourth quarter.
The extent of Powell's injury is important because Isaiah Crowell is also playing through a foot injury -- rushing only 11 times for 29 yards on Sunday.
Last week, the Jets learned WR Quincy Enunwa will be out for a month with a foot injury and waived WR Terrelle Pryor -- who was dealing with a groin issue.
The Jets also signed WR J.J. Jones and C Jon Toth to their practice squad on Monday, but even with those signings they still have depth to address at safety and in the backfield, especially if Powell's injury is significant.
