Injury News: Ace Carter to miss 2-3 weeks
Standout rookie Ace Carter looks set to miss time after getting rolled up on in Sunday's game:

Carter had 61 rushing yards in the first half and looked set to post his first 100-yard game and perhaps lead the Jets to a win, but the offense was less dynamic once he was out.
With Carter out, Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson picked up the slack. Second year man La'Mical Perine will presumably join the rotation over the next few weeks and get a chance to prove he belongs. The Jets also have Austin Walter on injured reserve in case someone else goes down.
