Jets TE Chris Herndon has officially returned from his four-game NFL suspension and the team has waived OLB Frankie Luvu.
Herndon was a staple of the Jets offense last season, finishing second on the team with 39 receptions, 502 yards and four receiving touchdowns. The former fourth-round pick led 2018 rookie tight ends in catches and ranked second in yards, earning a spot on PFWA’s All-Rookie first team. The 6’4”, 253-pound Miami product hurt his hamstring the Friday leading into Week 5 and is hoping to practice at some point this week.
Luvu has played in 18 games for the Green & White over the last two seasons, totaling 26 tackles and three sacks. The second-year Washington State product first signed with the team last May as an undrafted free agent, was waived Sept. 1 and joined to the practice squad before rejoining the active roster Sept. 8.
