The Jets announced several roster moves today in response to Week 1 injuries.
We've made multiple roster moves:— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 14, 2021
Placed on IR:
T Mekhi Becton
P Braden Mann
LB Blake Cashman
S Lamarcus Joyner
Signed to active roster:
S Jarrod Wilson
OL Isaiah Williams
LB BJ Goodson
P Thomas Morstead
As a reminder, injured reserve reserve rules this year require players placed on IR to stay there for three weeks. This is far less strict than the rules used to be. Previously players had to stay on IR for at least eight weeks, and teams had a limit to the number of players who could be reactivated each season. If you go back even longer, there was a time where IR meant your season was over with no option to reactivate players.
We discussed the Morstead signing earlier today. It is no surprise he will take Mann’s spot on the roster. Across the board the players signed are replacing a player at the same position who was placed on IR.
The Jets also announced some practice squad signings. Wilson and Williams were signed to the active roster off the practice squad, leaving two openings.
