Novak’s leg Dan Leberfeld
The Jets reportedly released kicker Nick Novak today.
The former Maryland kicker seemed to hurt his leg in the fourth quarter, last night, making a tackle on a Giants kick return.
According to an NFL source, Novak’s leg was spiked by the cleat of a Giants player. It’s not a serious injury, and likely didn’t require an injury settlement.
Don’t be surprised if Novak lands with another team very quickly.
He’s clearly an NFL quality kicker.
