Bad news out of practice today. Defensive line stalwart Mike DeVito pulled a calf muscle according to ESPN NY and his timetable for recovery is unknown.
DT Mike DeVito pulled a calf muscle in practice and was unable to finish. That type of injury, Ryan said, “is never good for a defensive lineman.” DeVito is a key player, so this bears watching. Presumably, he won’t play this week, meaning rookie DE Quinton Coples could get the start in the 3-4.
Brian Bassett, theJetsBlog.comNot good. While we like Coples, DeVito is one of the best run-stuffing linemen in the game. Having him ready for the season is the priority and we get the sense that his health could be a storyline for the season at this rate.
