Crowell To IR; Henderson Promoted

Isaiah Crowell JN

The NY Jets have placed Isaiah Crowell on I.R. and filled his roster spot by promoting De’Angelo Henderson to the active roster. The move ends the season for Crowell who finishes with 685 rushing yards. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry on the season, but that number is inflated because he had 219 yards rushing against the Broncos. The Jets offense as a whole has struggled with consistency this season and Crowell only surpassed 50 yards rushing in three games this season (Lions, Broncos & Titans).

Henderson has spent the majority of the 2018 campaign on the Jets’ practice squad and was activated to the 53-man roster for the team’s Week 8 matchup against the Bears. The second-year pro was released the following week and re-signed to the practice squad.

A sixth-round pick of the Broncos in the 2017 draft, the 5’7”, 208-pound Henderson appeared in five games last season for Denver and had nine touches including one scoring reception. The Coastal Carolina product played in 50 games for the Chanticleers and rushed for 4,635 yards and 58 touchdowns. Henderson also recorded 97 receptions for 921 yards and six scores.
