Bailey (elbow) was moved to the Jets' injured reserve list Wednesday, ESPN reports.
Bailey injured his elbow at an unspecified point in time. However, the severity of which is also vague and no timeline was provided for his return.
Bailey was waived by the Jets on Tuesday, Eric Allen of NewYorkJets.com reports.
Bailey appeared in five games for Gang Green last season and totaled 18 tackles. However, the Jets' depth at safety ultimately doomed the 24-year-old.
Bailey (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Bills.
With both Bailey and Calvin Pryor out this week, look for Rontez Miles to start at safety opposite Marcus Gilchrist on Thursday.
Pryor will start at strong safety in place of Calvin Pryor (ankle)Sunday against the Raiders.
Bailey recorded six tackles in 28 snaps against the Patriots last week and will look to string together back-to-back productive games.
Jets safety Calvin Pryor (ankle) will likely be unavailable Sunday against Oakland, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.
While the Jets have yet to officially rule him out, it doesn't seem likely Dion Bailey will get the start instead.
The Seahawks have waived safety Dion Bailey to make room on their roster for Kam Chancellor.
After playing 60 snaps in Week 1 against St. Louis, Bailey was replaced by DeShawn Snead last Sunday. Neither performed well, but it was Bailey who drew the short straw with the return of Chancellor. It remains to be seen where Bailey will wind up, but a return to the Seattle practice squad is possible.
Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor continued his holdout Wednesday, which forced coach Pete Carroll to rule him out for the season opener against the Rams.
“He’s not here right and so he’s not playing,” Carroll said, per The Seattle Times. “Today is Wednesday.”
Carroll added he was disappointed Chancellor has continued to remain away from the team.
“I am disappointed in this very much so,” Carroll said. “I think everybody should be because he’s been a great part of our team. It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this and he’s not here.
“I’m just going to take it like this is Wednesday and we’ll just see what happens next. If this is Wednesday I’m probably going to be speaking the same way next week, saying the same thing to you.”
Dion Bailey will start in Chancellor's absence.
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.
Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.
The Seahawks announced several roster moves on Tuesday, per the team's official website. The team will keep defensive back Eric Pinkins (foot) on the reserve/non-football injury list for the remainder of the season.
Seattle waived tight end Brett Brackett and wide receiver Chris Matthews from the practice squad and signed tight end Tony Moeaki and wide receiver Bryan Walters to the 53-man roster. The team also added safety Dion Bailey and wide receiver Jalen Saunders to the practice squad.
