Jets add ex-Hofstra RB Huggins to practice squad
The Jets announced Wednesday morning that they've replaced linebacker Troy Davis with former Hofstra running back Kareem Huggins on the practice squad.
Huggins, a native of Irvington, N.J., was a minicamp invitee of the Jets in 2009, but wasn't signed. He was signed by Tampa Bay that same year, but after playing in three games in 2010 (4 carries for 11 yards), the Bucs were forced to place him on injured reserve with a knee injury. After spending the 2011 season out of football, Huggins was signed by the Patriots in Aug. 2012, but was released the following day.
