The Jets placed tight end Ross Travis on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

This doesn’t necessarily mean Travis tested positive for COVID-19. He could be deemed a close contact of someone who has tested positive.

If Travis is considered a high-risk close contact, he would be required to spend five days on the NFL’s Reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Jets are on their bye and won’t be back at practice until Monday at the earliest.

Travis was elevated from the practice squad Monday and played three snaps in the Jets’ last-second loss to the Patriots.

Jets add former SBU tight end Davis. The Jets are signing former Stony Brook tight end Connor Davis to their practice squad, a source said. Davis lined up at tight end, offensive tackle and defensive end for the Seawolves. He has played for the St. Louis BattleHawks of the XFL and the Birmingham Iron in the Alliance of American Football. Davis was with the Jets during training camp but was released.
