The Jets have placed OL James Carpenter on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury, the team announced Wednesday.
Carpenter will need to undergo surgery on his shoulder, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
The 29-year-old Carpenter missed the Jets' loss to the Patriots on Sunday after playing in the previous 10 games of the season.
The veteran lineman, who was drafted by the Seahawks in the first round in 2011, hadn't missed a game since 2014, his final season with Seattle before joining the Jets.
Carpenter's shoulder began bothering him coming out of Week 7 against the Vikings, the team said. He sat out of last week's practices before being deactivated for Week 12.
With Carpenter out against New England, the Jets moved Spencer Long to the left guard position and put Jonotthan Harrison at center. The line played adequately, with the Pats recording just two sacks in the second half thanks to solid coverage downfield.
Carpenter is in the final year of his four-year contract with the Jets and will become a free agent after this season.
