Jets announce roster moves ahead of Week 2 game against Cowboys

The Jets announced a few roster moves Saturday ahead of their Week 2 trip to Dallas to take on the Cowboys (4:25 p.m. ET on CBS). Those moves include having their backup quarterback in place.

The Jets signed QB Tim Boyle to the active roster. Certainly not a surprise as Zach Wilson was the only quarterback on the 53-man roster this week after the Jets placed Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve (the corresponding move to cornerback Brandin Echols returning from suspension).

To make room for Boyle, the Jets released WR Irvin Charles from the active roster. They could certainly bring him back on the practice squad at some point. The Jets now have six wide receivers on the 53-man roster: Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman, Randall Cobb, Xavier Gipson and Jason Brownlee.

The Jets also announced the signing of kicker Austin Seibert to the practice squad and named him of of their two practice-squad elevations for this week, along with linebacker Sam Eguavoen.

Seibert will kick in place of the injured Greg Zuerlein this week. Zuerlein suffered a groin injury Thursday and is out for Sunday. Eguavoen is elevated for the second time this season. He played 17 special-teams snaps against the Bills. A player can be elevated three times from the practice squad without being added to the 53-man roster. A fourth elevation would require the team to sign the player to the active roster.
