The New York Jets have placed tight end Zach Sudfeld on season-ending injured reserve after he cleared waivers.
Sudfeld, who has found a niche with the Jets on special teams, suffered the injury during minicamp practice last Wednesday.
Sure, it’s just one loss. But to try to take positives from Sunday’s disaster at Lambeau Field would really expose a disturbing case of denial. The Jets beat themselves and there’s just no way to spin it.
Jets tight end Zach Sudfeld has never let injuries or adversity drag him down.
“We embrace the challenges, this team,” tight end Konrad Reuland said. “We truly believe we can beat any team we line up against.”
The Jets lose another valuable member of their offense due to injury. Can Geno Smith still find a way to outscore Drew Brees?

New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was suspended without pay for four games by the NFL on Friday for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The 6-foot-7, 260-pound Sudfeld played at the University of Nevada and signed with New England in May.
Gang Green is getting their chance at the New England Patriots at the right time. The high-powered Patriots have turned down the wattage quite a bit.
Two weeks ago if anyone had said the Jets had a legitimate shot to go into Foxboro in Week 2 and win that person likely would have been laughed out of the room. But the NFL has a strange way of leveling the playing field.
