Jets Protect Four Practice Squad Players for Sunday’s Game

With the Tampa Bay Bucs game just a few days away and plenty of covid cases still impacting their roster, the Jets have protected four players on their practice squad this week.

According to Dennis Waszak of the Associated Press, Gang Green is protecting TE Dan Brown, C Ross Pierschbacher, G Dru Samia and DT Tanzel Smart.

Smart had a fantastic preseason for the Jets and has stuck on the practice squad all season.  Brown was traded to the Chiefs for guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif before being let go by KC and re-signed by the Jets.

Samia is a guard who has played in fifteen career games (4 starts) with the Minnesota Vikings while Pierschbacher is an Alabama product who has played a handful of snaps in 8 games.  During his time with the Crimson Tide, he was lauded for his versatility, playing up and down the Alabama line under head coach Nick Saban.
