Receiver Patrick Turner has been promoted from the Jets’ practice squad to their 53-man roster, the team announced today. The Jets had an open spot after waiving safety Andrew Sendejo on Tuesday.
The team played Week 1 with just four healthy receivers on their roster: Santonio Holmes, Plaxico Burress, Derrick Mason and Jeremy Kerley. Logan Payne, who is recovering from surgery on a dislocated wrist, is still on the roster but weeks away from playing. The team also cut Mardy Gilyard, who had been claimed off waivers from St. Louis, on Friday.
