Jets cut LB Troy Davis from practice squad, per source. Tried out a few RBs, practice-squad types. Possible Ivory insurance.

Rich Cimini hinted that the Jets tried out some Running Backs possibly as a precaution to Chris Ivory’s recent injury (Ham String) which he suffered during Sunday’s night football game versus the Buffalo Bills.

The word quickly spread that the Jets had signed Running Back Kareem Huggins to the practice squad. The 27 year old Running Back is listed as 5’9″ 198 Lbs and is a Hofstra University alumni. Huggins suffered an ACL tear in 2010 and is now being giving an opportunity by the Jets to add depth to the Running Back position.
