Hits waivers with injury settlement

The Jets waived/injured Whitehead (undisclosed) from injured reserve on Friday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Whitehead was battling for a depth wideout role. He has limited NFL experience, with just nine receptions for 64 yards and no touchdowns over 30 games. He's considered a practice squad candidate at this time.

Reverts to IR

Whitehead (undisclosed) cleared waivers and was reverted to injured reserve, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: The Jets haven't released much information regarding Whitehead's injury status. Whitehead seemingly lost out on returning duties during the preseason position battle which likely made the decision to place him on injured reserve not too difficult for New York.

Waived/injured Sunday

Whitehead was waived/injured with an undisclosed injury on Sunday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Whitehead's injury severity is unclear. He was likely fighting for the final receiver slot on the Jets Week 1 roster and his release shouldn't impact the offense much. If Whitehead clears waivers he'll revert to the Jets' injured reserve.
