Jets placed KR Josh Cribbs on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Cribbs' days of running the wildcat for New York's beleaguered offense are through. Going on 31 and increasingly injury prone, Cribbs is going to have trouble finding a home for the 2014 season. His once dynamic return skills have all but evaporated. Darius Reynaud has been signed to take his roster spot.

Coach Rex Ryan said Josh Cribbs' shoulder injury is "pretty bad."

Cribbs is likely done for the year after appearing in just six games for the Jets. Antonio Cromartie filled in as a kickoff returner in Week 13, but that's not a viable solution considering his hip issues and role on defense. The Jets might have to look back to old friend Joe McKnight, who is currently on the street.

Josh Cribbs rushed five times for 20 yards and completed 1-of-2 passes for 13 yards in the Jets' Week 12 loss to Baltimore.

Obviously lacking confidence in rookie quarterback Geno Smith, the Jets turned to heavy usage of Wildcat-type plays with ex-Brown Cribbs as the triggerman. Cribbs was just signed off the street on October 15. Knowing Rex Ryan's affinity for the Wildcat, it's entirely possible this package stays as staple of Marty Morhinweg's offense. It was relatively effective in Week 12.

Raiders KR/WR Josh Cribbs' roster spot is "on shaky ground."

Cribbs has looked several steps slow on preseason returns, and he doesn't help on offense. "I think we've got to see the burst and the explosion," coach Dennis Allen said. "That's something that we're looking for in the next couple of games." The Raiders would lose nothing by cutting Cribbs and his $865k salary.
