Roster News: Jets release K Ficken, add five to active roster

The Jets made a flurry of roster moves on Saturday:

With Ficken gone, Chase McLaughlin - who is under contract for next year already - will do the kicking in tomorrow's game. Van Roten will start at right guard with Josh Andrews having been placed on injured reserve.

Finch and Smart had each been elevated from the practice squad in a couple of games. They'll presumably have been signed to deals that run through 2021.

Sheldon was elevated for the first time last week and Dawkins has already been elevated a few times. He'll therefore have to be activated as a Covid-19 replacement for La'Mical Perine and will revert to the practice squad along with Sheldon on Monday. The Jets will then probably sign them to futures deals, along with the other practice squad members.
