Tight end Chris Herndon has rejoined the Jets after serving his four-game suspension to begin the season. In order to make room for Herndon, the Jets have waived linebacker Frankie Luvu.
The Jets are getting back a big member of their receiving core from last season, as Herndon was second on the team in receptions with 39. The 2018 fourth-round pick also finished his rookie season with 502 yards and four touchdowns.
Despite being reinstated to the active roster, Herndon may not suit up for the Jets just yet, having injured his hamstring prior to Week 5, but he hopes to practice this week. SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported on Sunday that the Jets are expecting him to miss two games.
On the other side of things, Luvu had spent the last two seasons in New York, playing in 18 games over that span and picking up 26 tackles and three sacks.
Luvu first joined the Jets in May of 2018 before being waived and joining the practice squad September 1, and then being activated to the 53-man roster on September 8.
