Le'Veon Bell is being placed on injured reserve, the Jets announced on Tuesday. Bell, who left the Jets season-opening loss to the Bills before its conclusion, is currently dealing with a hamstring injury.
In a corresponding move, the Jets signed Ballage, a three-year veteran who rushed for 326 yards and four touchdowns during his two seasons with the Dolphins. But it really opens the door for Gore, who has looked good in camp and is a favorite of HC Adam Gase. In Bell's absence, veteran running back Frank Gore led New York with 24 yards on six carries.
