It is the same hamstring Ivory hurt on the first day of training camp, but the strain is in a different spot. The initial hamstring injury wiped out a good portion of his training camp, and the Jets are prepared for a similar absence this time around.
To this point, general manager John Idzik has swung and missed in his attempt to remake the Jets' backfield. Ivory can't stay on the field, while Mike Goodson remains off the grid as he completes his four-game suspension.
The days of Curtis Martin running free in the secondary seem so long ago.
