Mike DeVito (knee) leaves game
By Jane McManus
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Jets defensive end Mike DeVito left Sunday's 28-24 win against the Bills with a knee injury. Initially his return was listed as questionable, but in the fourth quarter he was downgraded to out.
The starter is a key part of the Jets defense.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said after the game that he didn't have an update on the condition of the injured defensive lineman.
"I'm not real sure," Ryan said. "I don't know about that right now."
DeVito has struggled with his knee this season ever since injuring it in the practice before the San Diego game, lining up opposite then-center Colin Baxter.
DeVito has been on the injury report since missing two games with the injury, but has played both against the Patriots and in Denver since his return. He had 23 tackles and a sack so far this season before the Bills game.
