Terminator Salvation: Jets Release Injured John Conner

During the filming of New York Jets' interation of Hard Knocks, Rex Ryan became enamored with fullback John Conner (left). Apparently, that love is over. On Wednesday the Jets released the 2010 draft pick with an injury settlement. The team hasn't ruled out bringing back the fullback, nicknamed "The Terminator" but needed the roster spot he was occupying as the team's backfield is suffering a slate of recent injuries. 

While the team said they might bring him back in the future, they won't be able to do so for at least six weeks (plus however many weeks they settled for) as per league rules. Conner joins the failed, miserable Fox show, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on the list of things that we'll probably never see again.
