Jets S Rontez Miles suffered a broken orbital bone this preseason.

The bone was broken in two places and required surgery. The Jets originally called the injury an eye laceration when it happened in the second preseason game, but it is much more serious than that. Miles is out indefinitely.

Jets signed S Rontez Miles from their practice squad.

Fifth-round OG Jarvis Harrison was waived in a corresponding move. With Calvin Pryor (ankle) set to miss his second game in a row, Miles will be asked to shore up a safety corps which was a disaster last week against Oakland. It is not out of the question Miles earns the start ahead of Marcus Williams and Dion Bailey.

Jets S Rontez Miles underwent offseason hip surgery.

A second-year UDFA out of California (PA), Miles spent the majority of 2013 on the Jets' practice squad. At 6'0/203, he's a big hitter whom ESPN New York mentions as a sleeper to "make a move in training camp" and contribute. Miles posted a 36.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump at the 2013 Combine.

Jets signed California (PA) S Rontez Miles.

Miles (5-foot-11 5/8, 203) was a two-time first-team FCS All American, making 43 career starts and intercepting nine passes at free safety for the Vulcans. He ran 4.62 at the Combine and demonstrated lower-body explosion both in the vertical (36.5") and broad jump (10-foot-3). The Jets' talent-deficient roster is the place to go as an undrafted free agent.
