David Harris Injury: Jets Linebacker Leaves Game Vs. Panthers

New York Jets linebacker David Harris injured himself in the first quarter against the Carolina Panthers and has left the game. Josh Mauga is now in with the Jets first-team defense.

Harris was having a great game up until he left the field, accruing four tackles in the first quarter. He was being checked upon on the sidelines and was later seen heading to the locker room with team doctors. He is back on the sidelines and out of the game with an apparent ankle injury.

This came minutes after tight end Dustin Keller injured his hamstring and left the game as well.

Harris is a six-year veteran with the Jets and has only missed substantial time due to injury back in 2008. He hasn't missed a game in the past three seasons. Last year, Harris had 86 tackles, 5.0 sacks and four interceptions (a career high).
