Jets Waive Maybin, Place Trufant On IR, Sign RB Bell
The Jets have made a few roster moves today:
Defensive back Isaiah Trufant has been placed on the injured reserve (IR) list, ending his season. In his second year, Trufant played mostly on the special teams last season, but saw more action at cornerback this year with the loss of Darrelle Revis.
Trufant injured his knee during this past week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks and his brother (Marcus). He also has a brother (Desmond) who plays for the University of Washington and is considered a pro prospect.
The team has also signed running back Kahlil Bell formerly of the Chicago Bears. Jets are thin at running back because of injuries to Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight.
