Roster News: Fant activated, Lewis placed on exempt list

The Jets made a couple of moves on their day off:

Fant's return was expected as he has been going through the return protocols over the past few days.

The situation with Lewis is a bit more uncertain. He left practice due to a head injury yesterday and was similarly placed on an exempt list towards the end of last season for a few games. That's therefore a bit more mysterious but we will wait to see what develops rather than speculate on what the situation might be.

Both Fant and Lewis were expected to be key reserves on the offensive line in 2021. With Alijah Vera-Tucker missing the last two practices due to a pec issue, Lewis had been splitting reps at left guard with Dan Feeney.

In other roster news, Brendon White - the rookie linebacker who was released a few days ago - has been placed on injured reserve. Evidently, he was waived/injured and has cleared waivers.
