The Jets announced Tuesday they have placed tight end Jace Amaro on the season-ending injured reserve list due to a torm labrum in his shoulder, per the Daily News. Amaro will undergo surgery later this week, according to Jets coach Todd Bowles. Amaro had four receptions for 38 yards and two touchdowns last season.
Jets tight end Jace Amaro was forced to leave Thursday's preseason game after suffering a shoulder injury, the team announced. He will not return to the game. Amaro caught 38 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games last season.
Jets tight end Jace Amaro had to leave Wednesday's OTA session after sustaining a back injury, reports NJ.com. The severity of the injury is not known. Amaro was seen clutching his back after running a route during the OTA session Wednesday. Amaro caught 38 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns last season.
Jets tight end Jace Amaro struggled mightily in his rookie year, dropping six of 52 passes thrown his way, the highest drop percentage of any tight end with at least 10 catches, reports ESPN.com. But the website said if offensive coordinator Chan Gailey employs his spread attack, it will benefit Amaro because he played in a similar offense at Texas Tech. "Unless he struggles with the new system, Amaro should overtake [Jeff] Cumberland as the primary tight end," the report said. Amaro (6-5, 265) played just 34 percent of the snaps as a rookie, catching 38 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns.
Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans with turf toe. Wilkerson has missed New York's last two games with the injury and has 49 total tackles with 4.5 sacks on the year. Cornerback Antonio Allen (hand) is considered questionable while tight end Jace Amaro (concussion) is probable.
