On Tuesday the New York Jets made several roster moves that may impact this Sunday's game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, including waiving wide receiver Patrick Turner. Last week they brought cornerback LeQuan Lewis back as part of the practice squad, but he was released to make room for linebacker Ricky Sapp, who was released when Lewis was added.

The waiving of Patrick Turner will leave the New York Jets with one open roster spot for now. He had been a familiar target for Mark Sanchez because of their time together at USC. He was also a special teams contributor for Mike Westhoff. Chaz Schilens appears to be healthy enough now to be a bigger contributor and that may have been why the Jets were comfortable without Turner. With a spot available on the roster, and the move to bring back linebacker Ricky Sapp, it is expected Sapp could be added if his ankle has now fully healed enough to play at full speed.

Otherwise it may very well be that Jets are looking to bring in players for tryouts, as teams often do right after the season has begun in order to find a talent that is a better fit and more useful against a particular opponent. Whoever is added is someone the Jets do not have to guarantee their 2012 salary to because they were not on the opening 53-man roster. When the New York Jets do announce whom they will be adding, we will of course bring you that news here at Jets 101.
