Updating a previous report, New York Jets LB Quinton Coples (ankle) is scheduled to undergo surgery on the ankle fracture he suffered in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17. Coples will be out indefinitely.
Huddle Up: In a little less than a day, Coples has gone from not needing surgery to surgery scheduled and from out 3-4 weeks to out indefinitely. As a result, don't include the Jets' 2012 sack leader in your IDP plans for at least the first quarter or -- more likely -- first half of the season.

New York Jets LB Quinton Coples (ankle) is expected to miss 3-to-4 weeks because of a hairline fracture in his ankle he suffered in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17. Coples will not need surgery but could sit out the first two games of the regular season.
Huddle Up: It's probably wise to temper your fantasy expectations for Coples, the Jets' sack leader last season with 5.5, until at least October.
