Jets K Kyle Brindza announced via his Instagram account that he suffered a torn Achilles’ while working out this week.
As cliche as it sounds…. a minor set back for a major come back. I have worked my tail off to get another shot and I got it, but now I have to take a step back. I ruptured my Achilles completely during my kicking workout. I’m not mad. I’m not upset. Unfortunate? Yes. I know God has a plan and I have to trust it. This is just another chapter to my story. Time to get this thing fixed and start the road to recovery. . Day 1 starts today! #Day1 #Dominate 🙏🏼
The Jets signed Brindza to a future/reserve contract a few weeks ago.
Brindza, 23, wound up signing on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame days after this year’s NFL draft. Detroit later traded him to the Buccaneers in return for TE Tim Wright at the end of the preseason.
However, Brindza lasted just a few months in Tampa Bay before he was waived back in October.
In 2015, Brindza appeared in four games and coverted just six of 12 field goal attempts to go along with six of eight extra point attempts and 12 touchbacks.
