The New York Jets have called up former NC State Running Back Zonovan Knight from the Practice Squad.

Jets star rookie Running Back Breece Hall tore his ACL on Sunday, and is lost for the year. As a result, New York traded to get Running Back James Robinson from the Jags, and called up Knight from the Practice Squad.

Knight originally made the 53-man roster coming out of Fall Camp, after going undrafted this summer, but his stay was brief, being released on September 5th. The next day Bam was signed to the Practice Squad.

Bam was solid for the Jets in the Preseason, rushing the ball 15 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in 3 games. He also returned 5 kickoffs for an average of 28 yards per return, with his longest going for 52 yards.
