The New York Jets will likely be without their kicker Nick Folk for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Folk injured his quadriceps early in the game and is not expected to kick, according to the team’s official Twitter account.

Though he won’t assume his usual role of kicking field goals and extra points, Folk will still be involved in the game as he’ll flip roles and hold for punter Ryan Quigley. Quigley converted on both of the Jets’ touchdowns with Folk assuming holder duties.

With Folk injured, coach Todd Bowles elected to pass on a potential 41-yard field goal attempt and instead went for it on 4th-and-3. The Jets converted and scored a touchdown to cap off the drive.
