"Jon Asamoah was held out for precautionary reasons for practice today, and we don't anticipate that it will be any issues at all for him moving forward," head coach Mike Smith said.
Asamoah was removed from Saturday's preseason game before the rest of the starting offensive line.
Soliai was reportedly on the Falcons' radar for a while. A pure run stuffer, Soliai has missed one game over the last four years. Asamoah, a product from Rich East High School in Park Forest, Illinois, started nine of 14 games for the Chiefs last year and 15 games the year before that.
Free agent guard
Asamoah would serve as an upgrade for the Jets over incumbent starter Willie Colon, particularly as a pass blocker. Colon is also a free agent, but interest in him could be lessened as he is recovering from a torn biceps tendon sustained in Week 17.
Fisher, Hali and Asamoah were all able to get through limited practice Friday. DeVito has limited Thursday, but did not practice Friday.
