Roster News: Jets activate Luvu and Shepherd, place Cannon on IR

The Jets have activated defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd from the suspended list and placed Trenton Cannon on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Shepherd gets an opportunity to bounce back from an underwhelming rookie season with Leonard Williams' departure freeing up some playing time on the defensive interior. Cannon, a core special teamer, had missed the past few games with the injury,

The Jets also called Frankie Luvu up from the practice squad with Blake Cashman being placed on injured reserve earlier today. Luvu has played off the ball at times under Gregg Williams but his inclusion also perhaps frees up Brandon Copeland and Harvey Langi to fill in at inside linebacker if required on Sunday. Hopefully Neville Hewitt will be back soon.

We'll update with the final injury report later.
