The Jets reached an injury settlement with fullback John Conner, effectively terminating “The Terminator.”

Conner’s been bothered by knee and hamstring problems in recent weeks, and coach Rex Ryan said the move “doesn’t preclude us from bringing him back at some point.

Of course, Conner’s now free to sign with any other team, and wouldn’t be able to rejoin the Jets until late this season.

The Jets signed linebacker Marcus Dowtin off the practice squad to take his place on the roster, with Ryan admitting they “needed the spot.”
