FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have confirmed that offensive lineman Robert Turner has a broken right leg that will require surgery, and running back Joe McKnight has a concussion.
Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that Turner will have surgery later this week to determine how long the versatile lineman will be sidelined. Turner was hurt during New York’s 20-16 preseason-opening loss to the Texans on Monday night.
McKnight, also injured in the game, won’t participate in team drills while he’s being evaluated.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Plaxico Burress is expected to practice after resting his sprained left ankle since Friday.
Linebacker Bart Scott (lower leg) will not practice, and will be monitored during the week. Center Nick Mangold (stinger) could play Sunday against Cincinnati, while guard Brandon Moore (hip) is doubtful.
