Shell (knee) is practicing Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Shell has started 29 games for the Jets over the past three seasons and didn't miss a single snap before a teammate rolled up on his knee in Week 15 of last season. After undergoing surgery in December, the 27-year-old is presumably close to full health if the Jets are allowing him to take the practice field in April.
Shell (knee) is facing a six-week recovery timetable, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Shell's knee injury was initially thought to be more severe than a typical ACL/MCL/PCL issue, but further tests have led to a more optimistic recovery timetable. This is great news for the 26-year-old, who now appears on track to be available for offseason workouts.
Shell (knee) underwent knee surgery Thursday and does not yet have a recovery timetable, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Todd Bowles said that Shell's undisclosed knee issue is beyond the typical ACL/MCL/PCL injury. It's unclear what this means for Shell's future, but it appears that his availability for offseason workouts -- including training camp -- could be up in the air.
Shell (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
The Jets announced earlier Wednesday that Shell would be out for the season with knee surgery on tap, so the transaction comes as little surprise. The specifics of the injury and Shell's procedure remain unclear, leaving the 26-year-old's status for offseason workouts up in the air. Brent Qvale should step in at right tackle for the final two games of the season.
Coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that Shell (knee) is done for the season and will likely require surgery.
Shell suffered a significant knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Texans, and will soon be placed on season-ending injured reserve. The fact that Shell will likely require surgery to address the knee injury puts his chances of recovering in time for offseason workouts in legitimate question. Brent Qvale is expected to draw the start at right tackle for the remainder of the 2018 regular season.
