Jets elevate Chris Streveler, activate Cedric Ogbuehi, place Jeff Smith on IR

The Jets may be continuing their run of using Chris Streveler as their own version of Taysom Hill. The Jets are elevating Streveler from the practice squad for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

This is the third time Streveler is being elevated. That’s the maximum a player can be elevated from the practice squad. The next call-up for Streveler would have to be adding him to the active roster.

Speaking of the active roster, the Jets returned a player to it and placed a player on injured reserve.

Offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi was activated Saturday after returning to practice this week. He was on injured reserve after suffering a groin injury in Week 12 against the Bears.

While Ogbuehi was taken off injured reserve, wide receiver Jeff Smith was put on injured reserve with a knee injury. That effectively ends his season, unless the Jets make a run to the AFC Championship Game.

Smith caught eight passes for 134 yards in 11 games this season and was also on special teams.
