The New York Jets re-signed recently released punter Ben Graham in time for him to play in the team's Monday night game against the San Diego Chargers.
Graham was cut last Tuesday after getting off to a poor start in his fourth season with the Jets. New York signed journeyman Reggie Hodges to replace him, but Hodges injured his left thigh in practice late last week and was ruled out for the game at San Diego.
The Jets waived wide receiver Marcus Henry, the team's sixth-round draft pick out of Kansas, to make room for Graham. Henry was inactive for New York's first two games.
Graham, a former Australian Football League star, averaged just 27.3 net yards in the Jets' 19-10 loss to New England last week. The Patriots benefited from excellent field position throughout the game, starting five of their nine offensive series in Jets territory.
New York then cut the 34-year-old Graham and signed the 26-year-old Hodges, who hasn't punted in an NFL game in nearly three years.
in an NFL game.
Graham has appeared in 49 career games for the Jets, averaging 43.7 yards with 24 touchbacks and 67 inside the 20-yard line.
Bills
Starting fullback Darian Barnes will have tests on his injured right foot, leaving his status uncertain for Buffalo's next game at St. Louis. Coach Dick Jauron didn't discuss the nature of the injury, except to say Barnes would have tests later in the day.
Barnes was hurt when he tumbled awkwardly into the sideline after a 9-yard reception midway through the second quarter of Buffalo's 24-23 win against Oakland on Sunday. Barnes got up favoring his right leg, but stayed in the game for a few plays before limping off the field and did not return.
Barnes was wearing a protective boot on his right foot after the game. He was not in the locker room Monday, but there was a pair of crutches leaning against his stall.
