Syracuse Football: New Orleans Saints place Jay Bromley on IR

The New Orleans Saints have placed former Syracuse football defensive lineman Jay Bromley on injured reserve effectively ending his season.

It’s been a roller coaster ride for former Syracuse football defensive lineman Jay Bromley since leaving the New York Giants.

After signing on with the New Orleans Saints in free agency this past offseason Bromley has floated on and off the roster (twice being released and then being brought back per NBC Sports).

Jay had played in two games and played in 45 total snaps during his time with New Orleans. But according to Saints reporters who work around the team, it seems like he was a player on the rise.

Sadly his 2018 season is over due to a torn biceps he suffered in the team’s 24-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, per Nick Underhill of the Advocate.

How bad is a torn biceps?

Well according to health experts it takes between three and four months to recover from a torn biceps. But Bromley could start working out other parts of his body as soon as three weeks following the surgery if things go well.

Bromley signed a one-year deal with the Saints, so he is on par to be a free agent at the conclusion of the 2018 season and will be free to sign on with another team. From what he has shown thus far throughout his five year career, he will definitely get interest on the open market.

FUN FACT: Bromley is the last Syracuse football player to record a double digit sack season (10 sacks back in 2013).

Although that could change with Kendall Coleman (seven sacks) and Alton Robinson (six sacks) each having dominant seasons and they still have five games left to build upon their impressive numbers to date.
