Aaron Berry injury update: Jets CB sidelined with hamstring injury

Kevin Casey

The New York Jets might be without reserve cornerback Aaron Berry, as the 24-year-old suffered a hamstring injury that will keep him out for two to three weeks -- essentially the rest of the year.

New York Jets backup cornerback Aaron Berry could miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury and could be headed to the injured reserve, reports Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Berry, a third-year player out of Pitt, will be out for two to three weeks with the injury suffered in Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. With three games left in the year, that's cutting it close. If the Jets added him to the injured reserve, they'd be able to add an extra player to the roster, but Berry would not be eligible to return at any point, including the playoffs.

The 24-year-old has played in seven games since signing with the team in October, recording two tackles. He recorded 12 pass breakups and an interception in 12 games with the Detroit Lions over his first two years, but was cut this summer after a pair of legal incidents that earned him a three-game suspension. Once that was completed, he was brought in to supplant the team's cornerback depth with Darrelle Revis out. He's listed as a backup to Kyle Wilson. In addition to Berry, the team has Ellis Lankster and Josh Bush, both of whom have had more active roles in the defense.
