In a significant blow to the New York Jets, star cornerback Sauce Gardner has been ruled out for Sunday's upcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a concussion, as officially announced by the team on Saturday afternoon.

Initially, Gardner's name appeared on the injury report later in the week, marked as questionable due to an illness. However, it was subsequently disclosed by the Jets that it is a concussion that will sideline him, dealing a severe setback to their defense against the formidable Eagles offense.

The Jets, coming off a triumphant victory in Denver the previous Sunday, were eagerly looking to maintain their winning momentum as they faced one of the NFL's top teams on Sunday. This challenge now becomes considerably more daunting with the absence of one of the league's premier defensive players, Gardner, from their secondary.

Gardner's prowess has been evident throughout the season, with opposing teams actively avoiding throwing passes in his direction. His stats for 2023 include 20 total tackles, three passes defended, and a forced fumble, emphasizing his significance to the team.

The much-anticipated matchup between the Jets and the Eagles is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday, raising questions about how New York's defense will perform in Gardner's absence.
