With starting linebacker Jarrad Davis still sidelined due to injury and rookie linebacker going on injured reserve yesterday, the Jets could use some help at the position and it seems help is on the way…sort of.
Oft injured linebacker Blake Cashman made his return to practice today but if history is any indicator, he won’t be around for long.
LB Blake Cashman (injured reserve) returns to practice this week. #Jets need him with a shortage of bodies at LB.

Suffering one injury after another, Cashman has been limited to just 12 games since being drafted in 2019. As many expected, he suffered a hamstring injury in week 1 and has been out ever since. If Cashman could miraculously find a way to stay on the field, he could be a nice piece on defense for the Jets as he offers plus coverage skills and positional versatility as a player who can line up inside or out.
Cashman will be joining a group that is coming off of one of its best games in recent memory with CJ Mosley and Quincy Williams combining for 25 tackles and a pair of sacks.
