Roster News: Jeff Smith placed on Covid-19 reserve

Both teams will be really shorthanded at wide receiver this weekend:

The Jets already lost Corey Davis for the year and are expected to be without Elijah Moore on Sunday too. In addition, Keelan Cole and Denzel Mims only just got off Covid reserve themselves so may not be 100 percent ready to go.

Both teams look set to elevate at least one wideout from the practice squad on Sunday. For the Jets, Vycint Smith is the main candidate because he was given protected status on Tuesday and can also fill in as a punt gunner for the other Smith.
