The Jets announced Tuesday that they waived rookie linebacker Marcus Dowtin.

Something seemed amiss last week when, out of the blue, the team announced Dowtin didn’t make the trip to St. Louis. The rookie wasn’t included on any of the injury reports prior to the Rams game, so his health can’t be an issue.

The linebacker took part in Monday's night-time walk-through and was spotted in the locker room afterward. 

Dowtin was fined $15,750 by the NFL last month for his roughing the passer penalty in the Jets' 30-9 loss to the Dolphins.
