If Cunningham, who the Jets singed last November, is truly out for the year, the Jets need to find other ways to generate a successful pass rush.  This means that the aging veteran Calvin Pace will have to somehow duplicate his double-digit sack totals from last season while receiving help from Jets newcomer Jason Babin, who will be expected to contribute immediately.

Sad to hear about the former Gator but wonder if he was going to make the team to begin with...especially if Barnes get healthy.

Idzik will replace him via the waiver wire.

Any recent updates on his rehab?  Nothing so far inspires optimism. I was looking forward to seeing whether a dose of Rex could fix Cunningham.  Their timing on the Babin signing could't have been better.

Shame for the kid, but a fairly meaningless injury for the Jets.  They picked him up last year mid-season. IIRC, they cut Ricky Sapp to sign Ed Reed.  The Texans signed Sapp before he cleared waivers, so they picked up Cunningham.  He played a couple of games with no stats and spent the rest of the year inactive.  They signed Babin and drafted 2 guys, so his spot was pretty much gone already.  I don't see how anyone could think the Jets were counting on any pass rush out of him.

Babin is the guy anyway.  He'll make the roster and make his sacks.  Team will hate him by November.  He'll sign a vet minimum with the Dolphins in March.

Jermaine Cunningham

The New York Jets sustained one major injury during the Green and White scrimmage on Saturday night. According to Ian Rapport Jets LB Jermaine Cunningham has a torn Achilles tendon.

The Daily News is also confirming that Cunningham is expected to miss the entire season.

With Cunningham, who the Jets singed last November, apparently out for the year, the Jets need to find other ways to generate a successful pass rush. This means that the aging veteran Calvin Pace will have to somehow duplicate his double-digit sack totals from last season while receiving help from Jets newcomer Jason Babin, who will be expected to contribute immediately.
