The Jets used their two allotted practice squad elevations this week on offensive lineman Grant Hermanns and tight end Kenny Yeboah.
Yeboah is being elevated for the first time this season, while Hermanns is getting the call for the second time already. NFL rules this season state a team may elevate a practice squad player three times and be able to revert them back to the practice squad immediately after the game. After the third time, if a team wants to use a practice squad player on game day, they have to sign him to the 53-man roster.
Last week, Hermanns was used as an extra offensive tackle behind starters George Fant and Max Mitchell, while the Jets made Conor McDermott inactive. With the Yeboah call-up, he likely becomes the third tight end Sunday against the Browns and it is looking like another healthy scratch for rookie tight end Jeremy Ruckert.
As ESPN’s Rich Cimini also notes, the Jets did not elevate practice squad punter Ty Long, so Braden Mann, who was dealing with a back issue this week, is good to go for Sunday.
