Breece Hall may have torn his ACL when the Jets played the Broncos.
Breece Hall, a rookie running back for the Jets, has been a key part of the team's surprising 5-2 record, but he may not be a part of Gang Greenwinning's ways for a while.
Hall was hurt in the second quarter of Week 7's game against the Broncos, and he was taken out of the game almost right away. After getting hit during a running play, Hall's right knee seemed to give out. He had to be carried to the locker room.
It would hurt the Jets' offense a lot. Hall ran for 62 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter. During the team's four-game winning streak, he has been one of the offensive spark plugs.
Here's what we know about Hall's knee:
Injury report on Breece Hall
After the game, Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that Hall's initial diagnosis was "not good," and it's likely that he tore his ACL.
Patrick Surtain hit the Jets running back hard in the second quarter of their Week 7 game against the Broncos. It took the running back a while to get up. Hall would be taken to the medical tent and then taken to the locker room on a stretcher.
He would later not be able to play because of a knee injury, but it was not clear exactly what it was. When he runs, his leg seems to buckle.
The bad news is for the Jets' offense, which relies a lot on running the ball and had been relying heavily on a second-round rookie in recent weeks. Hall ran for 116 yards and a touchdown in Week 6's win over the Packers. The week before, against the Dolphins, he had a total of 197 yards.
Since Hall is out, the Jets fill the running back room with Michael Carter, a fourth-round pick in 2021, and Ty Johnson.
