Abraham out for Giants game
The Jets said Tuesday that results from an MRI exam showed the strain. He will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.
Losing Abraham is a huge blow to the defensive line.
Abraham missed the 30-3 win over Buffalo on Oct. 12 after coach Herman Edwards deactivated him following a drunken driving arrest.
Abraham joins cornerback Donnie Abraham and safety Jon McGraw among the defensive starters on the sideline. Donnie Abraham broke his right shoulder against the Miami Dolphins in September and McGraw, partially dislocated his right shoulder against Buffalo.
Starting linebacker Mo Lewis is questionable for the Giants game with a sore hip. Lewis also underwent an MRI exam, but the results were negative. If he cannot play, rookie Victor Hobson would start in his place.
