  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Moved to IR

    The Jets placed Vera-Tucker (Achilles) on injured reserve Wednesday. Vera-Tucker will go on IR for the remainder of the season after he suffered an Achilles tear Sunday versus Denver. This marks the 24-year-old's second season-ending injury in as many seasons, and he will now turn his attention to recovering ahead of the 2024 campaign. With Vera-Tucker done for the year, expect rookie second-rounder Joe Tippmann to move up as the Jets' starting right guard.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Forced out Sunday

    Vara-Tucker (calf) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Broncos. Vera-Tucker was ruled out to begin the third quarter, as it appears he suffered a knee injury at some point during the first half. The 2021-first-round pick was one of the Jets' best offensive linemen last year before he suffered a season-ending triceps injury in October. In his absence, Max Mitchell will likely step in at right guard for the remainder of Sunday's contest. Vera-Tucker's next chance to play will arrive Sunday, Oct. 15 versus Philadelphia.
