Jets coach Todd Bowles announced the news after the game. It remains to be seen how long Kerley will be out. He also suffered a concussion with the Jets in 2013.
Kerley, who had two catches for 38 yards against the Falcons, is competing for playing time under Bowles, the Jets' first-year coach. Expected to be New York's No. 3 receiver behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker,Kerley is currently behind Quincy Enunwa for that position.
