INSIDE INFORMATION

Looking for the latest news from around the NFL? Our Insiders got you covered.

Barnes, one of the team's top pass rushers, was hurt in the fourth quarter of New York's 30-28 victory at Atlanta on Monday night. He was trying to get to quarterback Matt Ryan when his right knee went out on him, and he went down on the turf.

Barnes, signed in the offseason after spending the last three years with San Diego, had two sacks this season.

The Jets re-signed linebacker Ricky Sapp to help offset the loss of Barnes. New York also signed defensive tackle T.J. Barnes to the practice squad, and released defensive tackle Junior Aumavae from the practice squad.
