Bishop has moved from the Jets' practice squad to its active roster frequently over the past two seasons. He could potentially see a relatively healthy workload Sunday against the Browns due to the injuries to Josh Martin and Dylan Donahue.
Bishop was waived Thursday by the Jets.
Bishop has moved back and forth between the Jets' active and practice rosters over the last two seasons. Most recently, he played 12 defensive snaps in the team's loss Sunday to the Raiders. He's made three career starts and recorded 17 tackles.
Bishop suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Raiders and is questionable to return.
Bishop had not recorded a tackle before exiting Sunday's contest, and if he is unable to return, Dylan Donahue will be expected to serve as the primary reserve outside linebacker.
Bishop signed onto the Jets' practice squad, Eddie Greenburg of the team's official site reports.
Bishop took many first-team snaps throughout the summer, but don't be fooled, he wasn't going to be much more than a depth linebacker.
Bishop (neck) played 43 snaps during the team's preseason dress rehearsal Saturday.
Don't let the reps fool you, Bishop is still considered to be a depth linebacker on this defense. It's good to see him healthy though having fully recovered from the neck injury that was bothering him over the last several weeks.
