If the loss to the Bengals wasn't crushing enough, Jets S Jamal Adams was seen with a walking boot in the locker room after the game.
And whether it was the boot itself or the loss as a whole, Adams was very emotional while talking to reporters.
Adams was talking with tears in his eyes, and almost broke down a couple of times before calming down a bit. With his voice very low, here's what he said about his current situation:
"Obviously a freak accident happened and we don't really know -- I couldn't perform as myself," he told reporters at his locker. "But I'm really upset that we fell short. That's the ultimate goal. It's not about me, it's about this team. We didn't play well enough to get the win and you have got to give Cincinnati credit."
Adams didn't reveal any diagnosis, saying "I don't know" when asked what it was and whether or not he needed an MRI. He thinks it happened during the first series of the game, and though he was in a lot of pain, he didn't want to leave.
"I couldn't perform, but I felt like if I just shut it down, I was letting my teammates down. I couldn't do that.
"I held my own in a lot of pain, obviously. I couldn't let my brothers down."
So the big question for head coach Adam Gase during his conference call on Monday will be whether or not he has any news about the Pro Bowl safety. Adams' reaction to the situation did not look or sound good at all, and though the Jets' playoff hopes are all but finished, the chance of him sidelined would be another tough blow.
"Just upset. I'm more upset that we lost man," he said. "I'll be alright. You guys don't worry about me. I'll be fine. Just adversity -- we'll figure it out."
