EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley was one of three Jets to suffer a concussion in Friday's 30-22 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons.

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.

Running back Daryl Richardson and safety Durell Eskridgewere the other two Jets players who suffered a concussion.

Three other Jets players left Friday's game with an injury: wideout Shaquelle Evans(sprained back), offensive tackle Ben Ijalana(knee) and Dashaun Phillips(rib).
