What the Jets might do with two roster spots

By putting quarterback Eric Ainge and running back Jessie Chatman on IR, the Jets now have two open roster spots. What might they do with these two openings?

One move that would make sense is to re-sign tight end Jason Pociask, who was cut at the end of training camp. With Bubba Franks (groin) and Chris Baker (hip/back) both hobbling, the Jets need a tight end, and Pociask is currently a street free agent, after a brief stint in New England.

Another move that could be in the offing is the elevation of either running back Jehuu Caulcrick or linebacker Kenwin Cummings from the practice squad.

With Chatman done for the year, the Jets are down to two tailbacks. While Caulcrick is listed as a fullback, he was a tailback at Michigan State. He can play both positions. And at 255 pounds, he would give the Jets the jumbo back they are lacking.

It would be a very nice jesture to elevate the Western New York native for the game at Buffalo.

Cummings, who was one of the stars of training camp, might be needed with David Harris' groin injury. It would be surprising if Harris plays this week.
