Originally, Blake Cashman was designated to return to practice on October 7th after he was placed on injured reserve on September 15th. Cashman injured his groin in the first quarter of the season opener against the Buffalo Bills.
In his rookie season in 2019, he recorded 40 tackles, 0.5 sacks, one fumble recovery, and one pass defense in seven games.
At this moment, the Jets are taking any defensive help they can get. The team defense has seen a mighty regression from last season and continues to struggle.
The Jets designated Vyncint Smith to return to practice on October 7th after being placed on IR on September 7th with a core injury. To start 2019, the Jets signed Smith from the Houston Texans‘ practice squad.
Last season for the Jets, Vyncint Smith caught 17 passes for 225 yards in 13 games. Smith also became the primary kick returner for the team. He returned 10 kicks and averaged 29.9 yards per return.
If activated for tomorrow, he will likely start as the Jets’ second outside receiver outside Breshad Perriman. The Jets are looking for Smith to be the hidden gem of the offense.
