According to Jets' head coach Adam Gase, LB Patrick Onwuasor will miss four to five weeks after hurting his knee in practice.
The Jets signed Onwuasor in free agency and he was expected to play a key role for New York's middle linebacker rotation in 2020. He will now look begin rehab on his knee and will miss at least the first few games of the season.
Former Ravens LB Patrick Onwuasor has agreed to terms with the New York Jets, per source.
Onwuasor, undrafted out of Portland State in 2016, has played four seasons in Baltimore. Over his last three years, he’s totaled 203 tackles and 9.5 sacks. Onwuasor is a very solid addition to the Jets front seven.
Ravens linebacker Patrick Onwuasor was named AFC defensive player of the week for his performance in Week 16’s game against the Chargers.
Onwuasor recorded nine tackles (eight solo) with two sacks and a forced fumble in the victory. The strip came via tight end Antonio Gates with the Chargers driving late in the fourth quarter. Cornerback Tavon Young scooped up the loose ball and returned it 62 yards for a touchdown, extending the Baltimore lead to 22-10. The Ravens will be fighting for the AFC North title in Sunday’s regular season finale against the Browns.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Onwuasor finished with one solo tackle in the preseason opener.
Onwuasor will be playing next to stud IDP linebacker C.J. Mosley and makes for an interesting late-round flier.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Onwuasor continues to maintain a hold on the starting linebacker spot next to CJ Mosley through the first week of training camp.
Onwuasor, competing for snaps with Kamalei Correa and Albert McClellan, produced consistent numbers as a pleasant surprise for IDP players in 2017 while starting 13 games. As a 2018 late-round IDP flier who did not register any weeks with a zero last season, Onwuasor might provide nice value playing the weak side in the Ravens' 3-4 base.
