Maye (Achilles) revealed Thursday on his personal Twitter feed that he underwent successful surgery. Maye was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, and he'll now face a lengthy recovery process after he sustained a torn Achilles. The 28-year-old is slated to become a free agent during the offseason and will likely be unavailable to participate in OTAs for whatever team he finds himself on this spring.
Maye (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official website reports. As expected, Maye was placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn Achilles that will knock him out for the remainder of the season. The 28-year-old safety finished the 2021 campaign with 46 tackles and one sack in just six games played.
Maye will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn Achilles, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports. This was feared to be a serious injury from the start, and its severity has now been confirmed. Maye, who was playing out the season on the franchise tag, will miss the remainder of the campaign, and his recovery may linger into next season. The 28-year-old safety finishes the season with 46 tackles and one sack in just six games played.
Maye is doubtful to return to Thursday's game against the Colts after suffering a calf injury. Maye was injured early in the third quarter and immediately went to the locker room. There's no official word on the extent of the injury, but given his quick exit from the field, it appears that Maye is unlikely to return. Prior to the injury, Maye managed six total tackles.
Maye notched five solo tackles during Sunday's 34-31 win over the Bengals. Maye was statistically quiet during Sunday's upset win, especially considering that he was coming off a 12-stop performance Week 7. In all five appearances this season, Maye has played 100 percent of defensive snaps. He will be a worthwhile bounce-back candidate heading into Thursday's road matchup against the Colts.
