Jets linebacker David Harris left Sunday's preseason game against the Panthers with an apparent ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

David Harris left Sunday's preseason game between the New York Jets and the Carolina Panthers with an apparent ankle injury. The linebacker was taken to the locker room and will not return to the game, according to reports. There is no word yet whether the issue will affect him long-term.

Analysis: The Jets are off to an awful start to Sunday's game, injury-wise. Tight end Dustin Keller suffered a hamstring injury on the offense's second snap of the game. You'll want to keep tabs on Harris as an IDP, as he is a pretty solid source of tackles from the Jets inside linebacker spot. He was second on the team with 86 tackles last season, behind only safety Eric Smith. Harris has recorded as many as 127 tackles in 2007 and 2009, making him a high-ceiling option.
