The Jets activated second-year wide receiver Jalin Marshall to the active roster following a four-game suspension and waived cornerback Marcus Williams.

After signing as an undrafted free agent, Marshall registered 14 receptions and two touchdowns last season. The Ohio State product also served as a returner, averaging 24.9 yards per kick return.

"He's versatile," head coach Todd Bowles said. "He got caught up a little bit last week and we'll catch him up some more. At the end of the week, we'll decide if he'll play or not."

Williams, a fourth-year veteran from North Dakota State, played 38 snaps against the Browns on Sunday and appeared in all five games this season. For his career, the 26-year-old has collected nine interceptions in addition to 82 tackles, 23 pass defenses, 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

"The other guys were playing better," Bowles said. "[Juston] Burris and [Darryl] Roberts had great camps. Then you fall behind the eight ball and it's just a numbers thing. I think Marcus will land and play somewhere, we just had guys that were playing better at the time."
