The Jets have activated DT Folorunso Fatukasi from the reserve/COVID-19 list and placed LB Harvey Langi on injured reserve.

Fatukasi has a 5.7% run-stuff rate, the third-best mark in the NFL among interior defensive lineman. He was originally drafted in the sixth round in 2018 and has played in 28 games for the Green & White, totaling 64 tackles, 12 TFLs, 7 QB hits, and 3 sacks.

Langi (6-2, 250) started a career-high six games for the Jets and has 60 tackles, 1 QB hit, 1 PD and 1 fumble recovery. Originally an undrafted free agent in 2017, Langi played one game with the Patriots before he spent most of the 2018 season on the Green & White's practice squad.
