The New York Jets signed Lamar Jackson to the active roster, signed Josh Malone to the practice squad, and placed Chris Hogan on IR.

On Tuesday, the New York Jets executed three transactions with the other Lamar Jackson highlighting the trio.

Jackson was signed to the active roster, Josh Malone was signed to the practice squad and Chris Hogan is placed on IR due to a knee injury.

Jackson, 22, has dressed in two games for New York this season. Both times saw him elevated from the practice squad for a week (per the NFL’s new practice squad rules during this COVID-19-challenged 2020 season).

Since no player can be elevated more than twice, the Jets’ only option to use Jackson was to sign him to the active roster, which is exactly what they did.

Malone, 24, was originally a fourth-round selection by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2017 NFL draft. Scooped up last year by the Jets, he hasn’t really generated much buzz. He’s even dressed in four games (no starts) this season due to injuries to the wide receiving group but has only managed four catches and 16 yards.

Malone was released last week. His constant back and forth between unemployment and a spot with the Jets continues.

Hogan, 31, heads to injured reserve with a knee injury sustained in the Jets’ 30-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at MetLife Stadium this past Sunday. The veteran was signed this past August once it became apparent bodies were needed at the position.

Hogan’s season total reads 14 catches and 118 yards in five games played.
