Breaking: Jets Activate CB Bryce Hall From COVID-19 List

The New York Jets will finally get good news, for the first time in awhile. Rookie cornerback Bryce Hall has been activated from the COVID-19 list.

In a corresponding move, the Jets cut running back Pete Guerriero.

Hall was placed on the COVID-19 list on July 28. He will get to return to the facility.

An interesting but short camp awaits for rookie Bryce Hall.

Hall was selected the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Jets out of Virginia. Thought to have been a second or third-rounder, Hall fell down the draft board because of injury concerns.

In 2018, Bryce Hall impressed in his junior year by leading all collegiate players in pass breakups with 21. Hall actually explored the idea of declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft. After the Belk Bowl, he decided to stay at Virginia for his senior season. Some mock drafts had Hall going as high as the first round in 2019. A big year awaited for the highly-touted Virginia product.

Unfortunately, that dream senior season never came to fruition. In Virginia’s sixth game, Bryce Hall suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter against Miami, effectively ending his season.

This would cause Hall’s draft stock to plummet.

Predictably, Hall’s role on the team is unclear. He is currently on the back end of the cornerback depth chart. He has yet to see any kind of practice reps. He’ll have to work his way up.

Don’t expect him to start this season but he’ll likely be apart of the future in the Jets’ secondary. But, the same expectations came about for Blessuan Austin last season.

It’ll be about if the cornerback room can live up to expectations and progress as Pierre Desir and Brian Poole are fielding injuries.
