FLORHAM PARK, NJ - The New York Jets released linebacker Bryan Thomas on Saturday.

Thomas had one tackle in one game for the Jets this season. The Alabama-Birmingham product was working his way back from an Achilles tendon injury he suffered last October.

A first-round pick by the Jets in 2002, Thomas totalled 419 tackles and 31 sacks in 146 career games with New York.

The team signed cornerback Donnie Fletcher from the practice squad.

The Jets also announced that tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring) and fullback John Conner (knee) will miss Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Both players won't travel with the team.
