Rex on Jets signing injured wide receiver Dan Leberfeld

Yesterday, the Jets signed wide receiver Greg Salas off the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad.

However, he has a little bit of a knee issue.

Here is Rex Ryan’s opening statement today where he announced the injury report.

“The injuries, you’ve got (Santonio) Holmes did not participate. Kyle Wilson, concussion, did not participate and the new guy we just signed, the wideout (Greg) Salas did not participate with a knee.

“Guys that were limited today, Dee Milliner with a hamstring, David Nelson, hamstring. Everybody else is good.

“The new guy, we kind of knew he was going to be out. Not that you thought we just signed him and this just happened. That’s not the case.”

Ryan was then asked by a reporter – “Why would you sign an injured player?”

“If he had a severe injury or something like that, that wasn’t the case,” Ryan said. “This might be a couple of weeks and he’ll be back.”
