Jets activate WR Vyncint Smith, LB Blake Cashman from IR
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have activated wide receiver Vyncint Smith and linebacker Blake Cashman from the injured reserve list in time for both to play against the AFC East-rival Dolphins at Miami.
The team also announced Saturday it elevated quarterback Mike White from the practice squad. White will again serve as the backup to Joe Flacco, who is making his second straight start in place of the injured Sam Darnold.
Safety Marqui Christian was released to make room on the active roster.
The speedy Smith has been sidelined since training camp, when he suffered a core muscle injury that required surgery. Smith’s return boosts a Jets receiving corps that has been ravaged by injuries since the summer.
Smith joins Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman, Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith as wide receivers on the active roster. Perriman has missed three games with a sprained ankle but is expected to return Sunday.
Cashman injured his groin during the season opener and had been sidelined since.
Christian signed with New York on Sept. 23 and played in one game.
