Jets’ Carl Lawson out for the season after Achilles injury

New York Jets defensive end Carl Lawson will miss the rest of the season after injuring his Achilles during practice on Thursday. The 26-year-old fell to the ground after rushing a passer.

An MRI scan showed that Lawson had ruptured his Achilles.

His injury is bad news for the Jets since some other players, such as wide receiver Denzel Mims, defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins,, and cornerback Zane Lewis, also had to leave practice early for similar reasons.

Lawson started his NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals, who picked him in the 2017 NFL Draft. He played with the Bengals for three seasons and was selected to the 2017 PFWA (Pro Football Writers of America) All-Rookie Team.

This is not his first season-ending injury. He suffered from a torn ACL after he played only eight games in the 2018-2019 season.

Lawson joined the Jets in March after he signed a three-year contract worth around $45 million.
