Leonhard Out With Broken Leg

S Jim Leonhard fractured his right tibia Friday in a freak collision in practice and was scheduled for surgery Friday night at Morristown Memorial Hospital. There was no damage to the fibula, knee or ankle, and the fracture didn't break the skin, according to the Jets. Leonhard is expected to miss the remainder of the season, although the Jets wouldn't confirm that, saying they wanted to wait until after surgery before commenting on his status.

Leonhard's loss is undoubtedly a huge blow for the Jets, as he is a signal caller in the defensive backfield and the primary punt returner. WR Jerricho Cotchery is expected to replace Leonhard as the team's punt returner.

OT Damien Woody did not practice today, continuing to be cautious with his right MCL.
