Jets S Chuck Clark thinks he has a serious knee injury, sources say: Who will take over the starting spot?

Team and league sources confirmed that safety Chuck Clark believed safety Chuck Clark had suffered a serious knee injury the athlete Tuesday. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Clark, who had previously spent six seasons with the Ravens, was traded to the Jets in March. In turn, Baltimore received a draft late in the 2024 round.
  • Last Tuesday, New York signed former Packers safety Adrian Amos.
  • The Jets are awaiting a formal ruling and Clark is seeking a second opinion.

What would the Jets do without Clark?

The Jets considered Clark an upgrade safety over Lamarcus Joyner, whom they did not bring back for the season. Defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich recently spoke about how articulate and intelligent Clark is during OTAs. But now, it looks like the Jets will have to plan for life without him.

The Jets signed Amos from the Packers, in apparent reaction to the news that Clark had suffered a serious knee injury. The Jets haven’t been in Amos until recently — the Ravens visited on Monday — and the prospect of starting in New York right away likely appealed to him. In Baltimore, he would have been the third safety—which is why Clark wanted to be traded away to the Ravens in the first place.

background story

While playing for the Ravens, Clark finished second on the team with 101 total tackles in 2022. Baltimore named Virginia Tech MVP with the sixth round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He eventually played his way to the starting lineup and missed only one game in the past four seasons. .

Earlier in the season, Clark said he asked the Ravens for a trade last year. When that was not granted, he said, the two sides went with the understanding that he would be traded in the off-season. “I was ready to get out of there,” Clark said.

And he admitted that part of his frustration in Baltimore was the Ravens’ decision to recruit first-round safety Kyle Hamilton last year — along with other issues.

“Just the situation I was put in, the things I was told, the situation I felt I was on the team, I wasn’t respected at the time,” Clark said. “So it’s time for a change.”

Clark, 28, was the Ravens’ nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award last season.
