Josh Baker's Injury Likely To End His Season, According To Report

The New York Jets' tight end depth took a hit on Sunday night as tight end Josh Baker suffered a knee injury that will potentially end his season. Baker was signed from the practice squad last season and was hoping to stick as a backup.

In 11 games last season, Baker caught three passes for 27 yards and a touchdown. He is known more for his blocking ability than he is for his receiving.

He wasn't the only Jets tight end to leave Sunday's game early. Dustin Keller departed early after injuring his hamstring and his status for the team's Week 1 game is up in the air.

Josh Baker Injury: Tight End Out With Gruesome Knee Injury

New York Jets tight end Josh Baker has gone down with a knee injury after a collision in the end zone in the second quarter of an exhibition game against the Carolina Panthers.

This would be the third Jets player to leave the game already, including fellow tight end Dustin Keller. Baker was trying to haul in a touchdown pass when he went down and cannot put any weight on his injured leg.

The injury looks absolutely terrible and will most likely cost Baker the season. Baker played in quite limited time last year as a rookie, appearing in 11 games and recording three receptions for 27 yards and one touchdown.
