The Jets missed tight end Ryan Griffin over the final three games of the 2019 regular season.
He's slated to miss plenty of more time, too.
Griffin told ESPN during the team's locker cleanout day on Monday that his ankle injury could sideline him up to six months.
Per the report, Griffin had surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle last week. With that time frame, Griffin will likely miss some of the team's offseason program.
The 29-year-old was signed by the Jets in July and inked a three-year extension with the Jets worth $10.8 million and $4 million guaranteed.
Griffin was brought in by the Jets to back up Chris Herndon, who made minimal contributions in 2019 thanks to injuries and suspension.
Griffin hauled in 34 receptions for 320 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games played. He led the team with a career-high four touchdowns upon signing his extension. His five scores were a career-high as well.
