The Jets have activated running back Stevan Ridley from their Physically Unable to Perform list and have waived/injured wide receiver Chris Owusu.
Ridley, who has been rehabbing from a season-ending knee injury in New England's sixth game of last season, was eligible to come off of PUP last week against his former team but head coach Todd Bowles decided to go with Chris Ivory, Zac Stacy and fullback Tommy Bohanon in the backfield.
Bowles was asked after today's practice about Ridley's possible activation. "He's full speed," the coach said. "If we decide to do something with him, we'll be real comfortable."
Ivory is a bit banged up and Bilal Powell is out this week so the Jets may need Ridley's services. He'll be behind Ivory and Stacy.
Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) took full practice reps again Thursday. Ivory played through the injury last week. We are assuming he’ll do so again, and the full participation supports that assumption. If he’s out, Zac Stacy likely leads a committee backfield.
