A talented New York Jets rookie has seemingly just undergone season-ending knee surgery.

Optimistic Jets on Twitter shared the 55-second video from one of Breece Hall’s official social media channels:

The video documented a medical professional removing some of the bandaging around his surgically repaired knee and replacing it with fresh gauze.

It appears that shortly after posting this clip to social media, Hall ended up taking it down.

The Jets Medical Gameplan, Breece Hall’s Recovery Timeline

Hall hurt his knee during the Week 7 road trip to play the Denver Broncos on October 23. In the second quarter, Hall seemed to land awkwardly on his knee and stayed on the ground.

The Jets’ medical team immediately rushed to his side and the stud rookie would eventually need to be carted off of the field due to the injury.

Gang Green confirmed the next day that the former Iowa State product had suffered a torn ACL.

Following the 2022 NFL trade deadline general manager Joe Douglas spoke with the media and revealed that Hall wouldn’t have surgery immediately on the knee.

“Our docs are very optimistic that these guys are going to come back full strength next year and hit the ground running.”

There is a belief in some circles that if you delay surgery for certain athletes with certain injuries you can speed up the recovery time on the backend.

Breece Hall Changes Jets Offensive Dynamic

Breece Hall was a home run hitter for the Jets and the leading favorite for Offensive Rookie of the Year prior to getting hurt.

Through the first seven games of the 2022 season, Hall transformed into a superstar:

  • 681 total yards from scrimmage
  • Five total touchdowns on 99 touches
  • Averaged 5.8 yards per rushing attempt
  • Averaged 6.9 yards per scrimmage touch

Hall was the Jets’ offense and everything they did revolved around him. So when he went down in Week 7, it was up to offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur to figure out how to adapt to life without him.

It was a struggle in that first matchup with the New England Patriots. Gang Green only had 15 carries in the entire contest and they got away from the run game inexplicably early.

There are a lot of reasons you can point to for that kind of lackluster performance.

It was the first game after the Hall injury so everyone with the Jets was still trying to figure everything out.

Once the Hall injury news was confirmed the Jets traded for James Robinson from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Unfortunately because of timing and logistics, he didn’t have much of an opportunity to get his feet wet before he was thrown into the deep end of the pool.

However a week later everything clicked for the Jets during their upset win over the Buffalo Bills.

Gang Green toted the rock over 34 times and there was a perfect balance between the newly acquired Robinson and mainstay Michael Carter.

Heading into this Patriots rematch, Robinson has gotten two games under his belt with the Jets and he experienced the bye week.

All in all the former Jaguars standout has acclimated himself to the playbook and there should be a much different tone heading to Foxboro.

This offense won’t be the same without Hall in it, but the Jets have found a successful formula to get them through 2022.
