The doctor is back in for the Jets. A day after working him out, the Jets are signing offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to their practice squad, per Ian Rapoport.

Duvernay-Tardif played in eight games for the Jets in 2021, including seven starts. As Rapoport notes, Duvernay-Tardif liked his time with the Jets. Now that he has finished the medical residency that he finished over the summer, Duvernay-Tardif was ready to return to the NFL after pausing his career for the residency and to help aid during the COVID-19 pandemic. He was the first player to exercise the option to opt out of the 2020 season.

Duvernay-Tardif adds good veteran depth to the offensive line as the team is starting to get a little healthier along the unit. Max Mitchell could return to the active roster this week and George Fant could also return at some point. Nate Herbig has also been a pleasant surprise for the Jets at right guard. Depth this late in the season is crucial and the Jets can now start feeling a bit more comfortable with where they’re at on the offensive line.
