New York Jets linebacker Calvin Pace injured his foot against the Washington Redskins and could miss a few weeks.
Coach Rex Ryan says Pace has “something with his foot,” an injury suffered in the Jets’ 16-11 loss Friday night. Pace, who led the team with eight sacks last season, left the game in the third quarter.
The severity of the injury was not immediately known after the game.
Ryan says he’s not sure how long Pace will be sidelined, but expects it will be “a few weeks.”
Ryan also says the Jets are fortunate to have depth at the position, and veteran Jason Taylor will step into Pace’s spot in the lineup.
