The Jets placed Folk (quad) on injured reserve Tuesday. It appeared Folk would be able to return to action later this year despite straining his quad Sunday against the Jaguars, but the Jets ultimiately decided to place him on injured reserve, which opens up a roster spot but brings Folk's season to a close. Randy Bullock will take over as the Jets' kicker moving forward.
Folk is expected to miss a month due to a Grade-1 quadriceps strain, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. As a result, the Jets reportedly worked out Billy Cundiff, Garrett Hartley, Kyle Brindza and Randy Bullock on Monday, as the team scrambles to line up a new kicker in advance of Thursday's game against the Bills.
