New York Jets’ Defensive End Vinny Curry Out for the Season After Being Diagnosed With Rare Blood Disorder

The New York Jets made a roster move on Tuesday that ended veteran defensive end Vinny Curry’s season.

Now it’s clear why.

Curry announced Wednesday on social media that he had his spleen removed in July after the Jets diagnosed him with a rare blood disorder. During his recovery from the operation, Curry developed blood clots, requiring him to go on blood thinners and avoid contact for three-to-six months and miss the season.

“While I am incredibly disappointed that I will not be able to play with my teammates this year, I am thankful that the doctors identified my condition in time,” Curry said. “They have informed me that I am expected to make a full recovery.”

It was a scary situation for the 33-year-old, who played eight of his first nine NFL seasons with the Eagles before signing with the Jets this offseason.
