Woodhead not on Jets practice squad

The Jets became one of the last teams to announce their practice squad, and the list is notable for a name not on it: preseason cinderella running back Danny Woodhead, who made the team Saturday, only to get waived Sunday.

This is likely good news for Woodhead and bad news for Jets fans that took a shining to the kid, because Woodhead has probably been claimed on waivers elsewhere.

The Jets players who did make the practice squad: running back Jehuu Caulcrick, safety Emanuel Cook, linebacker Kenwin Cummings, safety Keith Fitzhugh, wideout Marcus Henry, defensive tackle Matt Kroul, tackle Ryan McKee, and tight end Jack Simmons.

It’s possible Woodhead will eventually displace one of the names above, but it seems more likely that he’s headed to another team’s 53-man roster.

    Woodhead was just waived yesterday, while all these players were waived Saturday and likely re-signed to the practice squad yesterday.

    Not a Jets fan, but watched part of their game against Philly. The kid (and he looks like a kid!) looked promising. Reminded me of Dave Meggett in the early days with the Giants before he became a known sex felon.
