The Jets defense suffered a potentially serious blow Thursday when defensive end Carl Lawson left the practice field on a cart with a left leg injury, according to The Athletic’s Connor Hughes.
The severity of the injury, suffered in a joint practice with the Packers, is not yet known.
The Jets signed Lawson to a three-year, $45 million deal this offseason to be the team’s top pass rusher in Robert Saleh’s defense. He was having a great training camp and consistently beat the Jets’ offensive line.
Lawson was poised to anchor the end of the Jets’ defensive front in Jeff Ulbrich’s 4-3 scheme alongside Quinnen Williams in the middle of the defense.
