Jets Cornerback Berry Placed On Season-Ending IR
CORTLAND, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Jets have placed cornerback Aaron Berry on season-ending injured reserve and signed running back Chad Spann.
Berry tore the anterior cruciate ligament in a knee when he got tangled up with a wide receiver during the Jets’ first practice of training camp Friday. He was expected to compete for the No. 4 cornerback spot, and coach Rex Ryan calls the loss of Berry “unfortunate.”
The Jets signed Berry last October after he was arrested twice last summer and cut by the Detroit Lions. He played in seven games for New York before being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring issue.
Berry was signed by Detroit in 2010 as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh.
Spann, who was undrafted out of Northern Illinois, spent the 2011 season with Indianapolis, Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh. He wasn’t on an NFL roster last season.
Defensive tackle Junior Aumavae and cornerback Mike Edwards were activated from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, while cornerback Darrin Walls was removed from the non-football injury list. All three practiced with the team.
