Jets’ Safety Leonhard Out For Season

Jets coach Rex Ryan says safety Jim Leonhard will miss the rest of the season with a torn patellar tendon in his right knee after being injured in Sunday’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
  

Leonhard underwent an MRI exam, which confirmed Monday what the Jets first feared when he went down on a tackle following an interception. It is the second straight year Leonhard has been lost for the season because of a devastating injury.
  

Leonhard broke the same leg in a collision with teammate Patrick Turner during practice a little more than a year ago.
  

On Sunday, Leonhard was hurt when he intercepted a pass by Tyler Palko intended for Steve Breaston, and the Chiefs wide receiver grabbed Leonhard’s leg for the tackle. Brodney Pool will replace him.
