The New York Jets placed former Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady on injured reserve Wednesday with a torn rotator cuff, ending his season.
The team also activated former second-round wide receiver Devin Smith from the physically unable to perform list, waived defensive end Jarvis Jenkins and signed defensive lineman Anthony Johnson from the New England Patriots' practice squad.
Clady, 30, dressed for last Sunday's loss against the Miami Dolphins but did not play.
Clady was acquired during the offseason in a trade with the Denver Broncos after the sudden retirement of offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson. Clady missed 30 of 48 games from 2013 to 2015 due to knee and foot injuries.
The Jets needed to activate Smith this week or he would have gone on injured reserve to end his season.
Smith, the Jets' second-round choice of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, has been rehabbing his right knee. His rookie season ended in December with an ACL tear. He caught nine passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in 10 games in 2015.
The Jets signed Jenkins to a two-year, $6 million contract in free agency, including $3 million guaranteed. He registered only 10 tackles and no sacks in nine games.
Johnson began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent out of LSU with Miami in 2014 and played in seven games as a rookie. He was a final cut by the Dolphins in 2015 and signed with Washington's practice squad last November. This year he joined the Patriots in May, moving on and off the active roster and practice squad.
