The injury bug bites again with the Jets. First, we get the news that Justin Miller may be out for the year with a bum knee, and now we find out that Fireman Ed may also be out for the year with a knee injury.
Newsday is reporting that Ed Anzalone had surgery on his knee after injuring it in a fire over the summer.
When he gets tempted to go to the game, he remembers that all it would take is one person jumping on his back in the crowd to further injure his knee, back and neck.
And, in case you’re wondering, he wholeheartedly expects the J-E-T-S chants to continue in his absence. “Somebody has to pick up the slack, bro,” he said. “When I get back there, I will, as soon as I can. But there’s 80,000 people, I’m sure somebody can do it Tell the fans somebody needs to pick the slack up.”
