Manish Mehta is a columnist for the NY Jets, and this is his tweet regarding TE Jace Amaro after his injury.
Jace Amaro is "week to week" with a shoulder sprain. Had MRI. Bowles thinks it'll be limited to preseason. Unsure #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 15, 2015
For those of you who don't recall - Jace Amaro was one of the few coveted tight ends that the Patriots were targeting in last year's draft. He comes from Texas Tech and would have been a nice, speedy compliment to Rob Gronkowski - similar to Aaron Hernandez. Unfortunately, the Jets got him first.
It would appear, however, that the New England Patriots are not missing much. Jace was set to have a much bigger role in this year's offense for the Jets and maybe even develop into a reliable fantasy option for players of the game. He is now considered "week-to-week" with a shoulder sprain, and even when he returns it will take some time to get back to 100%.
So, in the span of less than a week the NY Jets lose their starting QB to a locker room fight over $600.00, and maybe the only promising player on their offense to injury. As a person, I really hate to kick a man while he's down, but as a New England Patriots fan - any bad news for the Jets is good news for me. Keep flying stupid banners over our practice field, the karma is fantastic!
