The Jets are struggling to keep healthy cornerbacks, and added one to the roster Thrusday.
The Jets announced they activated cornerback Bless Austin, who was on the non-football injury list rehabbing an injury from his college days.
Their sixth-round pick from Rutgers has been practicing, and could end up with a role sooner rather than later. Cornerback Darryl Roberts picked up a calf injury in practice Wednesday and may not play this week, and they placed Trumaine Johnson on injured reserve.
To make room for Austin on the roster, the Jets waived linebacker B.J. Bello, who was signed last week.
