Nowadays, one ACL tear doesn't mean career ender. He'll be back.

He was waived as injured, meaning as long as he clears he comes back to the Jets and goes on IR.

By day he's the (not so) mild-mannered Bleedin Green, but by night...

I know if he clears waiver he is here on IR. But does that qualify a player for a paycheck ?

He gets a settlement. (Unless the new CBA is different) the rule is they can't waive a guy unless he's healthy. For Baker to get waived today means they reached an injury settlement.

Looked like it could have been multiple ligaments and or a fracture. That was ugly and it was obvious he was n trouble.

You saw him get hit in his knee. That doesn't tell you actual damage.
