“That is a blow,” left tackle Branden Albert Jerseys said. “I feel bad for Cam, because I’ve been there. I told him last night it’s tough. We definitely need him, New York Jets and somebody is going to have to step up, of course.”
Backup defensive ends Derrick Shelby Jerseys and Terrence Fede Cheap NFL Jerseys are expected to play in Wake’s spot on the left side of the line. Fede has 14 tackles this season, and Shelby has 11. Neither has a sack, but they have combined for three tackles for losses.
