Jets place veteran RB Gore on IR

The New York Jets placed running back Frank Gore on injured reserve Wednesday because of a long contusion, possibly marking the end of a storied career for a player known for toughness and durability.

Gore, 37, sustained the injury last week in the Jets’ win against the Cleveland Browns. He will miss the season finale against the New England Patriots.

In 15 games this season, Gore led the Jets with 653 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns. It marked his first season in New York after spending 10 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers (2005-14), three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts (2015-17), one season with the Miami Dolphins (2018) and one season with the Buffalo Bills (2019).

If this marks the end of his career for Gore, he would leave as the No. 3 rusher in NFL history. He has rushed for an even 16,000 yards in his career, which trails only Emmitt Smith (18,355) and Walter Payton (16,726).

Gore’s 81 rushing touchdowns rank 19th all-time and third among active players. He is a five-time Pro Bowl selection who also has amassed 668 rushing yards and five touchdowns in nine career playoff games.
