Jets sign RB Khiry Robinson, promote Brandon Wilds

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets have signed running back Khiry Robinson, who was waived/injured in September, and promoted running back Brandon Wilds from the practice squad.

The team also announced Wednesday that it has signed defensive lineman Claude Pelon to the practice squad.

Robinson was signed as a free agent in March and continued rehabilitating a broken leg suffered midway through last season while with New Orleans. The running back made his Jets debut in the preseason finale against Philadelphia, but reinjured the leg and was waived with an injury designation on Sept. 4.

Wilds has been on the Jets' practice squad since Sept. 26. He was signed this year by Atlanta as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina, and led the Falcons with 86 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the preseason before being among the team's final cuts.
