  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Moved to IR

    The Jets placed Vera-Tucker (Achilles) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Vera-Tucker will go on IR for the remainder of the season after he suffered an Achilles tear Sunday versus Denver. This marks the 24-year-old's second season-ending injury in as many seasons, and he will now turn his attention to recovering ahead of the 2024 campaign. With Vera-Tucker done for the year, expect rookie second-rounder Joe Tippmann to move up as the Jets' starting right guard.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Out for season

    Vera-Tucker will miss the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Vera-Tucker's season is over after suffering the injury during Sunday's win against the Broncos. With the 2021 second-round pick done for the year, Joe Tippmann is expected to shift over to right guard and Connor McGovern should now start at center.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Expected to miss time

    Vera-Tucker will undergo further testing, including an MRI, for the calf injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Broncos, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Vera-Tucker was unable to return to the game after suffering the injury, and it's possible that he's injured his Achilles. Further testing will eventually provide clarity on the 2021 first-round selection's injury.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Forced out Sunday

    Vara-Tucker (calf) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Vera-Tucker was ruled out to begin the third quarter, as it appears he suffered a knee injury at some point during the first half. The 2021-first-round pick was one of the Jets' best offensive linemen last year before he suffered a season-ending triceps injury in October. In his absence, Max Mitchell will likely step in at right guard for the remainder of Sunday's contest. Vera-Tucker's next chance to play will arrive Sunday, Oct. 15 versus Philadelphia.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Ready to go Monday

    Vera-Tucker (ankle) wasn't listed on the Jets' injury report Thursday ahead of their Week 1 game versus the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Despite dealing with a minor ankle injury during the preseason, it looks like the Jets' starting right guard is ready for the start of the regular season. If one of Duane Brown (shoulder) or Mekhi Becton (knee) sits out, Vera-Tucker could get kicked outside to tackle too.
