Stinson (neck) reverted to injured reserve Monday, according to the league's official transaction log.
Stinson made two separate stints with the Jets this season and made four game appearances in total, but only accrued one tackle on 51 defensive snaps. He appeared to sustain a neck injury in practice last week, however, and now seems set to finish out the year on IR.
Stinson (neck) was waived/injured by the Jets on Saturday, Calvin Watkins of Newsday.com reports.
Stinson signed with the Jets on Tuesday but was already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after sustaining a neck injury in practice this week. The 26-year-old was replaced on the 53-man roster by receiver JoJo Natson.
The Jets signed Stinson to a contract Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Stinson will assume the roster spot of wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, who received a four-game suspension Monday for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy. It's likely that Stinson, who has previously appeared in four games with the Jets this season, will work in a depth role along the defensive line.
The Jets waived Stinson (shoulder) on Tuesday.
Stinson injured his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. It was his fourth game with the team this season. The 27-year-old will presumably clear waivers and revert to the team's injured reserve.
