Jets RG Brian Winters (abdomen) isn't expected to play this preseason but anticipates being ready for Week 1.

Winters tore his abdominal and abductor muscles in Week 2 last season but played through it before needing surgery at the end of the year. He's believed to be at or near 100 percent, but the Jets aren't pushing the veteran in meaningless preseason games. Winters signed a multi-year deal in January 2017.

The Jets' offensive line is the source of growing concern. Backup swing tackle Ben Ijalana was placed on injured reserve Wednesday after hurting a shoulder in joint practices with the Redskins. Starting LT Kelvin Beachum (foot) already is out and likely will miss the remainder of the preseason, leaving Brent Qvale as the current starter. He started last week's game, but he doesn't have the athleticism to play the left side. If he doesn't play well Thursday night, the Jets might have to shop for left-tackle insurance or maybe move Dakota Dozier to left tackle. By the way, RG Brian Winters is expected to miss the preseason with an undisclosed injury, the NFL Network reported. Imagine if this line has to protect a rookie QB. Uh, oh. To fill Ijalana's roster spot, the Jets signed veteran C Gino Gradkowski.

So he'll be good to go for the season opener in Detroit then? This is just precautionary and injury wasn't reaggravated?

Let's be real.  I'd put the odds at 50% he plays in one of the first two games this regular season.

This just doesn't sound good.  It was like hearing Carson Wentz's comments on NFL Network yesterday, "I'm pretty sure I'll be ready for Week 1."

 

Yeah.....right

People were complaining about Darnold going underneath too much and his low Y/A vs. Atlanta, bit this is why. He’s got to get rid of the ball quickly with the O line hurting. I expect a lot of bootleg passes tomorrow.

Dont worry fellas according to some fans there will be a gaggle of starting O lineman available after cuts are made.

I agree. It's not a good sign and indicates he may have this as a lingering issue that will nag him throughout the season. He played THROUGH the pain ALL of last season, that CAN'T be good for his body's long-term prospects, surgery be damned. 

 

2/5 of the starting OLine are injured, one is a new FA signing, and the LG is an ill-fit for the scheme. DEFINITELY expose Darnold to 3 early games (one on MNF) behind WHATEVER the Oline ends up being spackled into by Opening Night.

Cimini says he IS injured. Jets are "SAYING" it's "precautionary" the SAME way Terrell Pryor's ankle surgery in the Spring was a "cleanup" and not because it was "Broken" (per Pryor's statements tot the press and at the IRKING of Bowles)

Brian Winters  has been and is a total waste of time. Almost always hurt, and not that good when hes not. Looks the part, nothing more. Wasted pick. Matt Slauson was twice the player Winters is.

Unfortunately Your correct.  Qvale played pretty well against the Falcons, but your right he just isn't athletic enough to play LT.  He's also a guy, like Carpenter, who might be negatively affected by the switch to a zone blocking scheme.  He's more of a mauler.

The O L is becoming very concerning.  IMO the original starters were good enough to be an average group.  With the injuries it's getting scary.

Exactly! What was he a 5th round pick? Shell a 5th or 6th also? Way to invest in the all important O line. Then we pick a project O lineman in the second round - Ducasse and he's starting for another team. Any AAU team or high School in Florida build their teams starting with the O Lineman. Not the Jets. I think they are just realizing now the importance of having a solid line - now that they have a 30million dollar asset to protect.

Not saying he will be just like him but Jason Fabini wasn’t athletic and was moved from RT to LT and played well for a period of time. Qvale and Fabini are similar body types.

Took the caps out of the title because a few people, myself included, misread it.

I know it doesn’t fit the youth movement narrative, but if it came down to it, there are some “last leg” players we could sign for the year:

Khalif Barnes, Will Beatty, Eric Winston, Chris Hairston, Luke Joeckel, Jahri Evans, Alex Boone, Joe Berger, Zane Beadles... there’s others

It is a little concerning that they signed a guy 

Could be Bowles is full of it 

Wouldn't surprise me if the stupid injury lingers again

Maybe the new center is the goods? Dennison would know, he coached him for two years.

I misspoke above, I meant to say Travis Long, the dude is 6’5, 320... maybe he could kick out to tackle in a pinch?

Swanson is a career center 

Maybe the Jets don't like the center group like at all lol

Neither guy has ever played tackle

Swanson is also tall, but never played out there 

I think Dennison just hates Harrison and Swanson lol

I think Ben Braden either steps up at LT, they try Qvale or go get a guy in the minidraft

Yep. I just looked it up, neither new guy has experience (college, or pros) at OT.  We’re doomed.
