The New York Jets have placed linebacker Bryan Thomas on season-ending injured reserve and signed linebacker Eddie Jones from the practice squad.

STING ME

It's the ugly but unavoidable side of football. Take a look at the major injuries of 2011.

The move Saturday to place Thomas on IR was expected after he tore his left Achilles tendon in the Jets' 34-17 loss at Baltimore last Sunday. Thomas was in his 10th season with the Jets and their longest-tenured player, but is due to become a free agent after this season. He led Rex Ryan's squad with six sacks last season.

Jones was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Texas in August, and was among the Jets' final cuts before they re-signed him to the practice squad on Sept. 28.

The Jets (2-2) play the AFC East-rival Patriots (3-1) on Sunday in New England.
