This looked painful on Sunday and, sure enough, will cost a Jets starter some time:
#Jets DT Sheldon Rankins suffered a dislocated elbow Sunday vs. Buffalo, per sources. He could miss up to 4-6 weeks, depending on the healing process. The upcoming bye week will help.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) November 7, 2022
At least this isn't season ending for Rankins, who had been doing a good job and even forced a fumble on the play before the one where he got hurt.
He'll obviously be out for about a month but could be back and fresh for the stretch run. In his absence, the Jets could turn to Jon Marshall or Tanzel Smart from their practice squad.
