Jets' Izzo placed on IR
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets have placed linebacker and special-teams ace Larry Izzo on injured reserve with a back injury.
The Jets have also signed linebacker Josh Mauga and center Michael Parenton to the practice squad.
Izzo, who signed a one-year deal with the Jets in the offseason, was tied with Eric Smith for the team lead with 18 special-teams tackles. He has 275 special-teams tackles in 200 games with New York, New England and Miami.
Mauga and Parenton spent time with the Jets during training camp before being among the team's final cuts.
