New York Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp is in critical condition following a bicycle accident this past weekend, according to Mike Klis of 9News.

The Jets passing-game specialist was hospitalized after a motorist hit him while he was riding in California. Knapp suffered serious injuries as a result of the collision.

The 58-year-old has worked in the NFL as an assistant since 1997, spending time with the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders, among other clubs.

He recently joined Robert Saleh’s Jets staff in January after logging three seasons as the quarterback coach for the Atlanta Falcons.

The Knapp family released a statement through the team on Tuesday highlighting his impact as not only a coach, but also as a father and husband.

Saleh asked fans to keep the coordinator in their prayers as he attempts to recover from a "horrific accident."
