The Jets announced a few roster moves ahead of their Week 11 matchup with the Buffalo Bills, including bringing back a defensive lineman and calling up two from the practice squad.
The Jets signed defensive tackle Tanzel Smart to the 53-man roster, not long after the team waived Smart and brought him back on the practice squad. Smart has seen time in two games this season with one tackle.
The two players elevated from the practice squad this week are offensive lineman Jake Hanson and linebacker Marcelino McCrary-Ball.
Hanson joined the Jets’ practice squad on November 6. He played in 11 games — including one start — with the Green Bay Packers over the past two seasons. Hanson was drafted in the sixth round by the Packers in 2020. He’ll add extra depth on the interior for the Jets Sunday.
McCrary-Ball has been on the Jets’ practice squad since the end of August when the team began building their practice squad for the season after their initial 53-man roster was set. He spent the 2022 season and the 2023 offseason with the San Francisco 49ers. The former Indiana Hoosier signed with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2022. With Chazz Surratt and Sam Eguavoen both out for Sunday, McCrary-Ball will be the fifth linebacker and help on special teams.
