Wide receiver Jalin Marshall suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs and he could be headed for IR soon. With Marshall sidelined for a while (and potentially the rest of the year), Ross will provide Gang Green with depth and could also factor in the return game. Ross, 28, split the 2015 season between the Ravens and Raiders, totaling just nine catches for 88 yards. He spent more time on special teams, returning 24 punts and 19 kicks on the year.
Thomas joined the Jets this year as a UDFA out of Michigan State. The early word was that his labrum tear would cost him at least a couple of weeks and we now know that his injury will take him out of action for at least eight weeks and, more likely, for the entire 2016 season.
