Jets starter returns to lineup, OL insurance policy goes to IR

The New York Jets checked several boxes on the roster form ahead of their home game in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills.

Gear green placed Offensive lineman Chuma Edoga in the injured reserve. That will knock him out for a minimum for the next three weeks, but it could take longer.

Even though he’s not a full-time starter, Edoga is still a very important piece of the puzzle. The Jets have already had an offensive duel with Mekhi Becton on the shelf, so they stick with George Fant and Morgan Moses.

Both players have done reasonably well, but they’re only one injury away from a next-man-up mentality. Well, the next man is unavailable for the foreseeable future, which is hardly ideal.

The Jets may lose a key reserve, but they will get reinforcements back.

Gang Green brought the player Braden Mann and the backup offensive lineman Conor McDermott back from the injured reserve.

Mann was originally injured in the season opener against the Carolina Panthers and the Jets had to turn and sign a proven veteran in Thomas Morstead.

He filled up admirably but was fired this week when their main squeeze punter returned to the team. Mann was a rookie for the NFL’s Punting Yards Leader and has an absolutely insane leg, so his return will be a welcome sight.

McDermott’s return is also perfect timing as Edoga is out with an injury. He should be the new break the glass emergency lineman when someone has to step in. * Knock on wood * Hopefully this won’t be necessary and everyone can stay healthy.

Four players from the practice team have been added to the active roster for the Bills game:

The veteran tight ends on the roster weren’t overwhelming overall, although they’ve had some nice pops over the past few weeks. What they lack, however, is a difference, and Yeboah has that ability from a receiving perspective.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh prides himself on having a deep rotation of the line of defense so he can keep all of his guys fresh.

On Sunday he will have a good mix of young (Rashed) and old (Blair). The former San Francisco 49ers Stud is a solid rotary piece that is very familiar with the system.

Rashed is a feisty young rookie who has humble roots as an undrafted free agent but could prove to be a valuable cog. After a 7-sack blast against the Tennessee Titans earlier this season, they had only combined seven sacks as defense in their last four games.

After all, Bawden will mainly contribute in special teams and occasionally as a relief for Trevon Wesco on the offensive side of the ball.
