NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets’ suddenly thin and inexperienced secondary took another big hit. Veteran cornerback Brian Poole is having surgery on his injured shoulder and coach Adam Gase confirmed Thursday that Poole will be out the rest of the year. Poole was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after hurting the shoulder and a knee in New York’s last game against New England on Nov. 9. The Jets also got the news that starting cornerback Bless Austin would miss practice with a neck injury and he was getting an MRI. Three of New York's five healthy cornerbacks are rookies.
