The Jets activated kicker Sam Ficken off of injured reserve on Saturday, the team announced.

Ficken missed the last three games - he also missed three games earlier in the season with a groin injury.

Sergio Castillo struggled in his place - Castillo went 1-for-4 on field goal tries against the Seattle Seahawks last week. This season, he has made just 61.5 percent of his field goal attempts, and 85.7 percent of his point after attempts. Meanwhile, Ficken nine of his 10 field goal attempts (90 percent), but just eight of 10 point after tries

The Jets also elevated defensive lineman Tanzel Smart, and linebackers Sharif Finch and Noah Dawkins from the practice squad.
