Sterling (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Eric Allen and Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site report.

Sterling suffered his second concussion of the season in the Week 8 loss to the Bears and was on track to miss his second straight game Sunday against the Bills. With the tight end apparently not making much progress through the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, the Jets have opted to shut him down for the season. Sterling's absence for the final seven games should clear the way for Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett to handle the majority of the snaps at tight end.
