With Darrelle Revis out for the season with a torn ACL, Ellis Lankster moves up a spot to play in the Jets’ nickel and dime packages. Lankster has most of the season to grow and show himself as a quality corner in the NFL.
On Sunday against Andrew Luck and the Colts, Lankster had a solid game, capping it off with his first career interception. The play came late in the game with the Colts driving down the field. Lankster read Luck as he threw into the corner of the endzone and stayed in front of the receiver to capture the INT.
