Marcus Maye has already experienced enough injuries in a contract year to affect his impending free agency. Now the New York Jets’ most experienced player in the secondary may be lost for the season.

Maye suffered a noncontact Achilles tendon injury in Thursday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts, an injury that didn’t need to happen with free agency looming this offseason. The injury isn’t officially season ending, but Jets head coach Robert Saleh admitted it’s not looking good. 

“You look at that secondary, he’s the vet,” Saleh said. “You got a lot of second-year rookie players and a lot of second year and first-year players on that back end and Marcus was kind of that setting force back there. Obviously a heck of a football player.

“Again I’m more concerned for Marcus and what we’ll do defensively to try to fill that void. He’s a fantastic young man and he’s done everything we’ve asked him to do. I’m sick for him.”
