The Jets made a waiver claim on Monday, scooping up DE Daeshon Hall from the Philadelphia Eagles.
The move likely came because it was learned that DL Kyle Phillips needs season-ending ankle surgery, which head coach Adam Gase revealed to reporters during his conference call. He suffered the injury in the Jets' 18-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Hall has had injury issues of his own, which is why he hasn't played yet this season. He suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 with the Eagles last year.
A third-round pick by the Carolina Panthers back in 2017, the 25-year-old has collected 1.5 sacks and nine combined tackles over three years in the league.
