The New York Jets have placed tight end Jace Amaro on season ending injured reserve, as he suffered a torn labrum and will undergo surgery.
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, New York Jets tight end Jace Amaro will undergo season ending shoulder surgery and has been placed on injured reserve.
Amaro suffered the injury during week one of the preseason August 13 against the Detroit Lions. The injury has been diagnosed as a torn labrum which will require season ending surgery to repair.

Amaro was the Jets second round pick in the 2014 draft who was being counted on to be the Jets main pass catching tight end for the 2015 season. Amaro leaves the Jets with a weak tight end pool led by Jeff Cumberland as the main check down target for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Is it to early to add Amaro to the long list of draft pick busts during the John Idzik era?
While bust is a strong word, this early in his career, if Amaro doesn’t get off to a quick start and take hold of the starting tight end job in 2016, bust will be the perfect label to pin on Amaro.
