Lemonier (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Jets on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Lemonier was fighting for a role as a depth linebacker and on special teams before injuring his foot in the Jets' preaseason finale. The 25-year-old is now free to sign elsewhere if able to play.
Lemonier (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday, The Associated Press reports.
Lemonier injured his foot in the preseason finale Thursday. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the season.
Lemonier (foot) won't return to Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Darryl Slater of the Star-Ledger reports.
Lemonier is fighting for a depth spot at linebacker and this injury doesn't help his chances of making the final roster.
The Auburn product latched on with the Jets at the end of the 2016 campaign after quarterback Bryce Petty was placed on injured reserve. Although he's been a journeyman to this point in his career, Lemonier is still just 25 and possesses above average athleticism. The Jets' deep linebacking corps will likely relegate him to a special teams role early in the season, however.
Lemonier was waived by Lions just over a week after signing with them and now finds himself with the Jets for the final week of the season. He was signed to fill the roster spot that was opened as a result of Bryce Petty's (shoulder) placement on injured reserve. Lemonier will serve as a depth option at linebacker and a special teams player in New York's season finale.
