Roster News: White, Adams and Malone added to roster for Sunday

As expected, the Jets have made some roster moves as expected ahead of Sunday's season-opener against the Bills:

The elevation of Adams and Malone is no surprise as the Jets are currently working with just two healthy running backs and four healthy receivers.

Adams led the Eagles in rushing as a rookie in 2018 and Malone started seven games in 2017, although he only has seven career catches. Malone might also be a candidate to return kickoffs. He got most of the work along with Ashtyn Davis in camp and although the Jets' official website lists Braxton Berrios as the number one kick returner, his return experience is almost exclusively on punts.

White over David Fales for the number two quarterback job is a minor surprise although the pair seemed closely matched during camp. The Jets clearly don't think rookie James Morgan is ready for emergency duties but if all goes to plan they won't need to use White either.

The one position that hasn't been addressed is the inside linebacker position. There are no healthy backups behind Neville Hewitt and Blake Cashman, although Harvey Langi could perhaps play there in an emergency. If one of those two is hurt, the Jets may need to go with three safeties instead and play one of them in the box full-time.

It's also notable that the Jets have so far chosen not to put Denzel Mims onto injured reserve. That suggests they expect him back in week two or week three.
