The Jets placed safety Marcus Maye on injured reserve and promoted cornerback Jeremy Clark to the active roster.
Maye, a second-round pick out of Florida in the 2017 NFL Draft, registered 32 tackles this season and one interception along with two pass defenses and one forced fumble. Head coach Todd Bowles said this week that surgery could be on the horizon for Maye, who is dealing with shoulder and thumb ailments. His 104-yard interception return against the Broncos in Week 5 was the longest INT return in franchise history.
A sixth-round pick out of Michigan in 2017, the 6’3”, 200-pound Clark began his rookie campaign on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List due to an ACL tear he suffered in college. He was activated to the roster last December and then waived by the club in September before joining the practice squad.
