In the past few weeks, Jeremy Kerley has become an oft used target in the New York Jets’ offense.

He’ll no longer be a target today after Kerley was forced to leave the game with a nasty elbow injury.

As Bilal Powell was rushing the ball, Kerley attempted to make a block for the running back but lost his balance in the ruckus. That lead to Kerley falling backwards into a pile of falling defenders, which ended with Kerley’s left arm breaking his fall. Unfortunately, as other players were tumbling to the ground, one just so happened to fall on the elbow/forearm of Kerley, bending it in a way that no arm should ever bend.

Needless to say, Kerley was quickly removed from the gain in obvious pain.

The Jets receiver, holding his arm, rushed to the sideline before he was quickly taken away to the Jets’ locker room.

Our best wishes for the young receiver as given what can be seen below, the injury does not look as if it will have a very positive ending.
