Jets Waive Damario Ambrose, Josh Baker Headed to IR


Two more roster moves, with two more to come by this afternoon at 4 PM.

The Jets have already announced that they are going to let go of K Josh Brown, and name Nick Folk the placekicker for the third straight year.

We have learned that the Jets have let go of LB Damario Ambrose. Not big news, as we didn’t hear a lot about Ambrose.

The bigger news is regarding Josh Baker. He unfortunately suffered a torn ACL last night, as a result of that terrible collision he suffered in the endzone during the first half of last night’s game. We knew that it was serious when he came off the field not putting any weight down, and now it is confirmed.

Therefore, the Jets will be releasing Baker, per his agent. He will then revert to the team’s IR list, so he will be on injured reserve when it’s all said and done. Too bad for Josh, as he was having an excellent camp.

That leaves 2 more moves to be made by 4 PM to get down to the required 75.
