Jets IR Xavier Coleman, Re-Sign Neal Sterling

CB Injured at Miami in 2nd NFL Game; 3rd-Year TE Back After Playing Games 2-4 for Green & White


The Jets have placed cornerback Xavier Coleman on injured reserve and have signed tight end Neal Sterling off of the Kansas City practice squad.

Coleman, signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Portland State after the April draft, was signed off the practice squad and made his pro debut against New England. He was injured playing special teams at Miami and goes to IR after having played on three defensive plays and seven special teams plays.

Sterling (6'4", 257) was originally signed by the Jets as a free agent on Sept. 3 and played on 23 offensive plays and 18 ST plays in Games 2-4. The Jets waived Sterling on Oct. 5 and Kansas City signed him to its practice squad two days later.

Sterling, who began his NFL career as Jacksonville's seventh-round selection (220th overall) out of Monmouth in the 2015 draft, had one catch for 8 yards at Oakland this year and has 13 receptions for 118 yards for his career.
