The injury bug continues to hit the Jets' offensive line, as rookie tackle Chuma Edoga reportedly has a Grade 2 MCL sprain, head coach Adam Gase confirmed on Monday.
Edoga has started at both left and right tackle for the past eight games, but that will likely change with this injury.
"It's going to be week-to-week," Gase said during his Monday conference call. "I don't want to put an exact timeframe on it, but we'll see what this week brings us and then see how he feels as we go."
And not only is Edoga going to miss time, but there's a chance LT Kelvin Beachum may as well. Gase said he sprained his other ankle, but does expect him to practice at some point this week to be ready for the Bengals on Sunday.
"He's working through those," Gase said about Beachum's ankles. "I think he's going to be OK to go on Wednesday for practice in a limited capacity. We'll start sticking to a certain schedule for him."
The third-round pick is now a part of a decent-sized list of injured linemen for the Jets. Brent Qvale, Ryan Kalil and Brian Winters are all on the IR, which has forced replacements in. For example, with Winters out, Tom Compton had to be put in at right guard with Jonotthan Harrison playing center for Kalil.
It looks like Brandon Shell will be back in at right tackle after he was sidelined for Edoga. He has seen time in 10 games this season with six starts.
