The NY Jets announced a few roster moves this week. QB Mike White has been added to the practice squad. There are also a few changes at the running back position. Kalen Ballage was released and Ty Johnson was claimed the other day. It has been a bumpy year for Ballage with the Jets, the team traded for him and then he failed his physical. He was eventually picked up on waivers before being released today. This could mean that Le’Veon Bell is getting close to return. We will learn more about that this week when Adam Gase speaks to the media.
Johnson (5-10, 210) was waived by the Lions Oct. 1 and played in 16 games (1 start) for Detroit in 2019. He had 63 rushes for 273 yards (4.3 avg) and added 24 catches for 109 yards. He also returned 3 kicks for 58 yards (19.3 yds/return). Johnson was selected in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Maryland where he ran for 2,635 yards and 17 TDs on 348 carries (7.6 avg) in 43 games.
