McDougle was promoted due to the Jets possibly being without both Buster Skrine (knee) and Marcus Williams (ankle) in Week 10. He's unlikely to be much more than a depth corner and special teams player.
McDougle was waived by the Jets on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
McDougle was originally drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft, but his rookie season was quickly derailed by a torn ACL. The Jets had hoped that McDougle would rebound in 2015, but the 25-year-old never seemed to return to his old self after the injury.
McDougle (hamstring) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.
The Jets drafted McDougle back in 2014 with the expectation that he could soon be a cornerstone of the team's secondary. Unfortunately, a torn ACL and other minor injuries have plagued their plans. Rookie Juston Burris and Darryl Morris are likely to see increased reps during his absence.
