Jets promote Dexter McDougle; Kellen Davis waived/injured
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have promoted cornerback Dexter McDougle from the practice squad and waived/injured tight end Kellen Davis.
The team also announced Saturday that it has signed linebacker Victor Ochi to the practice squad.
McDougle will help replace cornerback Marcus Williams, who’s expected to miss a few weeks with a sprained ankle.
McDougle was a third-round draft pick out of Maryland in 2014 but missed his rookie season with a torn knee ligament. He played in 14 games last season, was waived after training camp this summer and signed to the practice squad.
Davis injured an elbow at Cleveland on Oct. 30 and hadn’t played since. He was used primarily as a blocking tight end and didn’t have a catch this season.
Ochi, a rookie from Stony Brook, played in two games with New York before being waived Nov. 5.
