The Jets have a deep group of outside linebackers, or at least they had one.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Jets believe Jermaine Cunningham has suffered a torn Achilles, which would almost certainly end his season.

The former Patriots linebacker had stood out early in camp, and figured to play a role as a third-down rusher.

The Jets brought in veteran Jason Babin recently, and that signing will be crucial now, as their depth is tested.
