Just a few hours before kickoff against the New England Patriots, the Jets have announced the promotions of wide receiver Jordan White and cornerbacks Donnie Fletcher and Darrin Walls from the practice squad.
White’s promotion was a foregone conclusion by yesterday afternoon as Jeremy Kerley continues to nurse a hamstring injury as a result of an earlier heel injury. Stephen Hill is also listed with an ankle injury and has been struggling to catch passes which left the Jets with Chaz Schilens and Clyde Gates as the only fully healthy (reliable?) receivers on the roster.
The additions of Walls and Fletcher are not surprising. The cornerback position has been decimated by injuries this season leaving the main starters, Antonio Cromartie, Kyle Wilson, and Ellis Lanskter, as the only healthy cornerbacks. Lone backup (prior to this afternoon) Aaron Berry is questionable with a quadriceps injury.
All three are likely to be active tonight.
