Clark, who had been in the final stages of recovering from a torn ACL he sustained in college, will have a chance to make his NFL debut with the Jets during their final four games this season. The 2017 sixth-rounder will likely serve in a depth role in the secondary and could see action on special teams.
Clark (knee) returned to practice Wednesday but remains on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Clark continues to recover from an ACL tear he suffered playing college ball. He'll now have three weeks to be activated to the roster or else he'll revert to injured reserve.
Clark (undisclosed) was moved to the reserve/Non-Football Injury list Friday, Connor Hughes of the Star Ledger reports.
Clark will be eligible to practice between Week 6 and Week 8. If he isn't activated within three weeks of his return, he'll then revert to injured reserve.
The Jets selected Clark (6-foot-3, 220 pounds) in the sixth round of April's draft to add size and depth to a secondary in need of reinforcements. However, the Michigan product is coming off an ACL tear he sustained in the fourth game of the Wolverines' 2016 season, and there's no guarantee he will regain his pre-injury form. If he shows less mobility than expected in training camp, Clark could have trouble seizing a roster spot ahead of the season opener.
