The Jets reached an injury settlement with FB John Conner, Rex Ryan told reporters Wednesday. LB Marcus Dowtin will be activated from the practice squad to fill Conner’s roster spot.
Ryan said the move “does not preclude us bringing (Conner) back at some point.”
Conner has been dealing with a hamstring injury. He has appeared in three games this season with two starts. Last year, Conner played in every game with eight starts and had 13 carries for 44 yards and a touchdown.
Lex Hilliard will remain as the team’s fullback.
