The Jets announced the following roster moves ahead of Sunday's game:
We've activated T Duane Brown from IR and placed T Max Mitchell on IR.— New York Jets (@nyjets) October 8, 2022
We've also elevated LB Hamsah Nasirildeen for tomorrow's game.
Assuming Brown will slot straight into his usual left tackle position, this still leaves unanswered questions as to who will start at right tackle. Will Alijah Vera-Tucker move across to the opposite side after his successful cameo as an emergency left tackle? Is Conor McDermott going to start on the right, where he finished Sunday's game? Or could Cedric Ogbuehi see action for the first time? McDermott seems the most likely candidate, with Vera-Tucker moving back to his regular guard slot, but we'll probably have to wait until the Jets huddle up for the first time tomorrow to know for sure.
Mitchell going onto injured reserve is disappointing but it was pretty obvious he was going to miss at least a few weeks. The Jets will just have to figure things out until George Fant is eligible to return in a few weeks.
Nasirildeen was elevated last week as well, primarily to full in on special teams with Quincy Williams unavailable.
