Jets' Kerley out with elbow injury

November, 3, 2013
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, the New York Jets' leading receiver at the start of the day, injured his left elbow in the second quarter Sunday and didn't return to the game against the New Orleans Saints.

Kerley was hurt while blocking for running back Bilal Powell on the third play of the quarter. He was in obvious pain and was taken immediately to the locker room.

Already missing Santonio Holmes, who missed his fifth straight game with a hamstring injury, it left the Jets with a patchwork receiving corps -- Stephen Hill, David Nelson, Josh Cribbs and Greg Salas. Hill is the only one that was on the team at the start of the season.

The Jets also played without their top two tight ends, Jeff Cumberland (concussion) and Kellen Winslow (suspended).
