The make room for McChesney on the regular roster, the Jets finally put quarterback Jay Fiedler on the injured reserve. Fiedler had shoulder surgery last week.
Running back Terry Butler was elevated from the practice squad to the regular roster. This move was made for depth purposes with starting tailback Curtis Martin out for the year following knee surgery. Butler is an excellent special teams player.
To replace Butler on the practice squad, the Jets signed fullback Luke Lawton. The McNeese State product has bounced between the regular roster and the practice squad this year.
