The Jets have designated OL Conor McDermott to return to practice.
McDermott (6-8, 305) sustained a knee injury against the Packers in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve Sept. 1. He signed a one-year contract extension with the Green & White on Nov. 20, 2020. He appeared in 15 games in 2020 and took 125 snaps (22.2%). Originally drafted by the Patriots in the sixth round in 2017 out of UCLA, McDermott didn't make the initial 53-man roster and was claimed by the Bills before joining the Jets. He's appeared in 30 games (3 starts) in four seasons.
