Langi (undisclosed) was placed on practice squad injured reserve Thursday, Dennis Waszak of the Associated Press reports.
Langi will therefore miss the rest of the season. He will look to make a run at a spot on the Jets 53-man roster next summer, given that he is healthy.
Langi has missed the last two days of practice due to injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Langi may have suffered a chest injury during practice a run play earlier in practice, though the culprit behind his absence hasn't been officially revealed. The second-year player remarkably is among the candidates to claim a spot on the 53-man roster following a serious car crash last season that left him with a number of significant injuries, but it appears he's temporarily sidelined in his quest.
Langi worked with the second- and third-team defense during spring workouts, Tara Sullivan of the Boston Globe reports.
Langi's mere availability this spring is a blessing after the defensive lineman was involved in a car accident last fall that delivered Langi a host of injuries, starting with but not limited to a pair of fractured hips, a sprained knee, six fractured pelvic bones, a head laceration, and upwards of 10 fractured ribs. However, it seems the BYU product is in good shape entering training camp, when he'll compete for depth slotting under likely starters Adrian Clayborn and Trey Flowers.
Langi (knee, neck) will play in 2018, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.
Langi was involved in a car accident in October, resulting in his ending the season on the Non-Football Injury list. He's expected to participate in the team's offseason program and be back to full health by the time the 2018 season roles around.
