The Jets have acquired three players off of waivers, released two, placed one on Injured Reserve, and  have agreed to add seven players to their practice squad this afternoon.

Claimed and awarded on waivers to the Jets are RB Alex Green (from Green Bay), T Ben Ijalana (from Indianapolis) and LB Scott Solomon (from Tennessee).

To make room for those three players, we released RB Kahlil Bell and LB Danny Lansanah and placed Josh Mauga (back) on IR.

The seven players added to the practice squad, all of whom were in the Jets' training camp, are:

■ WR Michael Campbell

■ LB Troy Davis

■ DT Tevita Finau

The Jets have one spot left to fill on the practice squad.
