NEW YORK – New York Jets kicker Nick Folk has a hip flexor injury and his status for the team's game at Minnesota on Sunday is uncertain.
Folk missed two field goals against Miami on Monday night. Coach Rex Ryan was not sure when Folk was hurt in the Jets' 16-13 loss or whether the injury contributed to his misses. Folk came in with two missed field goals all season but was wide left on both a 48-yard attempt and a 45-yarder, which would have given the Jets the lead with 5:42 left.
Ryan also says wide receiver Greg Salas has a hamstring injury that "doesn't look good." Ryan first said it was a tear but quickly backtracked to say he wasn't sure of the severity.
