FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets placed rookie left guard Alijah Vera-Tucker and cornerback Michael Carter II on the COVID-19 list, adding to a growing group of sidelined players.
The team also announced Tuesday it activated backup quarterback Mike White from the COVID-19 list after he missed four games.
With the additions of Vera-Tucker and Carter, the Jets have 13 players on the active and practice squad rosters on the COVID-19 list: wide receivers Elijah Moore, Jeff Smith and Vyncint Smith; defensive linemen Folorunso Fatukasi, John Franklin-Myers and Tanzel Smart; linebackers Noah Dawkins and Hamsah Nasirildeen; cornerback Lamar Jackson; safety Sharrod Neasman; and special teams ace Justin Hardee.
Tight end Ryan Griffin was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season. He caught 27 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns this season before being hurt last Sunday at Miami.
