With the health of QB Sam Darnold up in the air for the next few weeks, the Jets announced Monday afternoon that they've signed Luke Falk to the active roster, and in turn, have waived S Bennett Jackson.

Falk is now set to back up Trevor Siemian tonight, as the Jets host the Browns and Odell Beckham Jr. at MetLife Stadium for Monday Night Football.

The second-year man of out Washington State performed well for the Jets during the preseason, completing 80.6 percent of his passes (29-of-36) for 230 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Nat Berhe didn't play in a game in his second season with the New York Giants and learned a lot about life in the NFL.

It can be taken away very quickly.

The safety missed all of last season with a calf injury that turned out to be a little more than a pulled muscle. He developed a blood clot in the leg and had to have it removed.

The Giants' open safety competition continues to evolve as the summer rolls on. It looks like rookie Landon Collins is in the lead for one of the positions (possibly SS) while the other slot remains a derby consisting of Nat Berhe, Cooper Taylor, Jeromy Miles, Mykkele Thompson and Bennett Jackson, who is making the transition from cornerback.
