CORTLAND -- The Jets announced Wednesday morning that they have released wide receiver Vidal Hazelton with an injury and placed fellow wideout Marcus Davis on injured reserve.

Hazelton suffered a right leg injury during practice drills Tuesday and had to be helped to his feet by two trainers.

He later was driven off the field toward the locker room and later emerged on crutches.

Rex Ryan had no post-practice updates Hazelton's injury, but it’s assumed the wide receiver will miss the rest of the season with an ACL tear.  

If the receiver clears waivers, he'll reverts to injured reserve.
