Jim Leonhard, Jets Safety, Out For Season With Broken Tibia

New York Jets safety Jim Leonhard suffered a broken tibia during practice and is done for the season, as first reported by Jay Glazer on Twitter.

Leonhard collided with receiver Patrick Turner during a team drill according to an ESPN report.

Leonhard, who also called all of the Jets plays on defense, had amassed 52 tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery through 11 games this season. He was also the Jets primary punt returner, returning 21 so far this season for a total of 238 yards, an average of 11.3 per return.

With Leonhard out, Brodney Pool and Eric Smith will start at safety for the Jets. Jerricho Cotchery is expected to handle the punt return duties on Monday night against the Patriots.
