New York’s injury woes continue, as defensive back and first-year Jet, Lamarcus Joyner has suffered an upper body injury. The injury was believed to be to his elbow, but it looks like he has torn a tendon in his arm. This kind of arm injury could be season-ending, pending further tests.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Monday.
#Jets DB Lamarcus Joyner, who exited the game with an elbow injury, suffered an apparent torn tendon in his arm that will require surgery, source said. Pending further tests, the injury likely knocks him out for the season.

Joyner was a second round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, after winning the BCS National Championship with Florida State in 2013. He has been on teams that have changed cities during his tenure there two different times. The Rams, who drafted Joyner, moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles while he played there. Then, during his two years as a Raider, the team moved from Oakland to Las Vegas.
As stated above, the Jets have already been gutted by injuries. Joyner is the latest, adding to left tackle Mekhi Becton, free agency addition Carl Lawson, safety Ashtyn Davis among many more. The team lost their Week 1 matchup to the Panthers 14-19, in Sam Darnold’s revenge game.
