New York Jets defensive end Carl Lawson left Thursday’s joint practice with the host Green Bay Packers after suffering an apparent left leg injury.

Lawson was surrounded by teammates and coaches before being taken away on a cart.

The Jets signed the 26-year-old pass rusher in March to a three-year, $45 million contract that includes a reported $30 million in guaranteed money.

A fourth-round pick by Cincinnati in 2017, Lawson posted 20 sacks, 81 tackles, 83 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles in 51 games (14 starts) with the Bengals.

He contributed 36 tackles, 32 QB hits and 5 1/2 sacks in 16 games (11 starts) last season.
