Four New York Jets Miss Practice With Illness

The New York Jets are heading into a very tough stretch, as they sit at 7-5 looking to make it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2011, and if they are able to end that drought, they're going to need to beat some great teams late in the season.

On top of losing standout rookie tackle Max Mitchell for the remainder of the season, the Jets are now dealing with a flu going through the organization, with four players, Corey Davis, D.J. Reed, George Fant and Michael Clemons all missing practice today due to the illness.

This is a story that could carry through to the Week 14 clash with the Buffalo Bills, or they could all recover and be ready for the crucial divisional showdown, so we will keep you updated on the condition of all four going forward, in what could be the most important story of the year for the exciting Jets.
