The Jets have made their moves ahead of Sunday.

The Jets had also been hoping to activate Quinnen Williams and Tyler Kroft but unfortunately could not. That leaves the Jets particularly thin at tight end where they only have Brown and Yeboah available. The Jets will also have to put Jonathan Marshall back into the rotation on the defensive interior.
Blair and Montgomery have been active the past few weeks, so there's no change there.
The Jackson activation is a weird one because it will be the first time he's suited up all year and the Jets aren't particularly shorthanded in the secondary. Maybe this is just a reward for working hard on the practice squad all year or something.
The Bucs were able to activate cornerbacks Sean Murphy-Bunting and Jamel Dean from the Covid-19 list and head coach Bruce Arians was cleared to coach on Sunday too.
