Jets Place TE Ryan Griffin On IR

Chris Herndon‘s replacement will join him on IR. The Jets moved Ryan Griffin to their injured list on Thursday and activated offensive lineman Brent Qvale to take his place on the 53-man roster.

The Jets ruled out Griffin for Thursday night’s game against the Ravens due to an ankle injury. That malady will end Griffin’s first Jets season. Thanks to the in-season extension the parties agreed to, Griffin will be back with Gang Green in 2020.

Starting all 13 Jet games due to Herndon’s suspension, then injuries, Griffin caught 34 passes for 320 yards and a career-high five touchdowns. Both players are signed through at least the 2021 season. Griffin, who will turn 30 in January, is signed through 2022 via the three-year, $9.55MM re-up the ex-Texan inked last month.

Qvale returned to Jets practice recently and is in line to see action in the team’s final three games this season. A sixth-year Jet, Qvale has started 14 career games. The former UDFA suffered a knee injury in August and has spent the entire season on the Jets’ IR list.
