The New York Jets have placed kick returner-wide receiver Josh Cribbs on injured reserve and signed kick returner Darius Reynaud.
Rookie quarterback Geno Smith has struggled mightily lately, having completed 25 passes in his past three games. That’s 25 total — eight against New Orleans, eight at Buffalo and nine against Baltimore.
“We embrace the challenges, this team,” tight end Konrad Reuland said. “We truly believe we can beat any team we line up against.”
Ryan wants his players to hold out on their significant others. And no, the coach wasn’t talking about sex, no matter what rookie Sheldon Richardson thinks.
Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. A knee injury put his career in doubt as the NFL season started without him. Finally, the New York Jets called, offering Cribbs the chance he wasn’t sure would ever come.
Cribbs, 30, spent his first eight NFL seasons in Cleveland, registering 10,015 career kickoff-return yards and eight touchdowns. He also added three punt-return TDs in that span.
The Cribbs tour is staying in New Jersey for one more day. Big Blue will give the free-agent kick returner a look on Thursday, according to multiple reports.
Fumbles transform the NFL into the WWE. When a football hits the ground, players are known to do whatever it takes to get it. Nothing is off limits.
