Jets place TE Reuland on IR
By Rich Cimini
Tight end Konrad Reuland, a wedge blocker on the New York Jets' kickoff-return unit, was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury.
The injury is a bit curious because Reuland played the entire game Sunday against the Buffalo Bills -- a total of 21 snaps, all on special teams. He didn't appear to get hurt. In fact, he was on the field for the final special-teams play of the game, a Bills kickoff with 4:02 remaining.
Reuland didn't appear last week on the Jets' injury report. He played in 10 games, but had only a small role on offense. In fact, he played on 34 offensive snaps. He finished with one catch for 7 yards.
The Jets didn't announce a corresponding move. They have 52 on the roster, including three tight ends -- Jeff Cumberland, Kellen Winslow and Zach Sudfeld.
