FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey — The New York Jets have placed kick returner-wide receiver Josh Cribbs on injured reserve and signed former Tennessee kick returner Darius Reynaud to replace him.
Cribbs injured his right shoulder in the Jets' 23-3 loss to Miami on Sunday. Coach Rex Ryan said Monday that the injury appeared "pretty serious."
Cribbs, signed by the Jets in October, averaged 24.5 yards on 20 kick returns and returned eight punts for a 12-yard average.
Reynaud was cut by the Titans in October after muffing a punt that resulted in a touchdown by San Francisco. He has two career punt returns for scores, and also has returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Reynaud, averaging 22.5 yards on kickoff returns and 9.7 on punts, has also spent time with the Giants and Minnesota Vikings.
