New York Jets safety Jamal Adams’ availability for this weekend’s game against the Miami Dolphins is in question due to an ankle injury.
Adams, who hasn’t missed a game in his career, was undergoing an MRI exam on Monday to determine the severity of the injury, per coach Adam Gase.
Gase said Adams was “legit week-to-week” with the injury but did not ruled him out when the Jets (4-8) host the Dolphins (3-9) on Sunday.
Adams was spotted in tears while talking to reporters after New York’s 22-6 setback to Cincinnati on Sunday. He exited the stadium in a walking boot on his left foot.
The 24-year-old has one interception this season, and he returned it for a touchdown. A first-round pick (sixth overall) of the Jets in the 2017 NFL Draft, Adams also has 64 tackles and six passes defensed in 2019.
The former LSU star made the Pro Bowl team for the first time last season, when he totaled one interception, 115 tackles, 12 passes defensed and 3.5 sacks.
