Curry, who signed a 1-year, $1.3 million contract with NY in the offseason, said:

In July, the Jets doctors diagnosed me with a rare blood disorder. The diagnoses required the removal of my spleen and projected me to return to the field in the middle of September.

But, Curry says his comeback date changed … after he developed blood clots during his recovery.

Vinny says he’s now currently on blood thinners which will prevent him from having “physical contact for the next three to six months.”

Curry said:

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.

Vinny added that doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

He adds:

I can promise them all that I will be back stronger and more determined than ever!

Get Well soon Vinny.
