Jets place TE Cumberland on injured reserve

The New York Jets officially ended the season of tight end Jeff Cumberland, who has a torn Achilles tendon, by placing him on injured reserve Tuesday.

Cumberland, in his second season out of Illinois, caught just three balls for 38 yards in three games over two years -- including one reception for two yards in a 32-3 win over Jacksonville on September 18.

He suffered the injury during the second quarter of Sunday's 34-24 loss in Oakland.

To fill the roster spot, the Jets elevated tight end Josh Baker to the active roster. The Northwest Missouri State product was waived on September 3 but signed to the practice squad September 14.

The Jets also placed offensive lineman Rob Turner (ankle) on injured reserve.

New York also signed wide receiver Michael Campbell, defensive back Julian Posey and tight end Martell Webb to the practice squad, and released both linebacker Matthias Berning and defensive back Andrew Sendejo from the practice squad.
