FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets signed wide receiver Josh Malone to the active roster Tuesday after he was elevated from the practice squad for the first two games.
The team also announced it placed cornerback Arthur Maulet on injured reserve and released linebacker Paul Worrilow from the practice squad. The Jets also signed linebackers Bryce Hager and Noah Dawkins, and offensive lineman Blake Hance, to the practice squad.
Malone has four catches for 16 yards this season while helping bolster an injury-depleted receiving group. He began the season on the practice squad, but was elevated to the active roster before each of the first two games. As part of new NFL rules, a team can elevate a player from the practice squad and then return him twice in a season without exposing him to waivers.
