Jets place Cotchery, Moore on PUP with injuries



FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery and right guard Brandon Moore have been placed on the physically unable to perform list with injuries as the team opens training camp.

Cotchery had back surgery in February to correct a herniated disk, which he played with throughout last season. He still managed to catch 41 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns. Moore had surgery on his hip in February, but recently said he would be “ready to go when it’s time to go.”

Both players can come off the PUP list as soon as they are healthy.

The team also has officially announced the re-signing of cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who agreed to a deal early Monday morning, and the signing of cornerback Donald Strickland.
