Jets’ Devin Smith Out For Season With Torn ACL

Jets receiver Devin Smith will miss the rest of the season with a torn right ACL, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News tweets. Head coach Todd Bowles said surgery has not been scheduled, but the team will place Smith on injured reserve (Twitter link via Mehta).

Smith’s season-ending injury is the culmination of a disappointing rookie campaign for the second-round pick from Ohio State. Smith’s woes started when he broke his ribs early in training camp, an injury that kept him from making his Jets debut until Week 3. Prior to hurting his knee in the team’s 30-8 win over the Titans on Sunday, Smith went without a catch. He ends the 2015 season with just nine receptions in 10 games.

With Smith’s year over and fellow wideout Jeremy Kerley dealing with a bruised calf, Bowles said the Jets could look to add a receiver in time for Saturday’s showdown in Dallas (Twitter link via ESPN’s Rich Cimini).
