The Jets waived/injured Dedrick Epps Monday afternoon in order to clear a roster space for Berry. Epps suffered a hyperextended knee in Sunday's 34-0 loss to San Francisco after catching Tim Tebow's only pass of the afternoon.
Analysis: Epps' departure is an encouraging sign the Jets could welcome starting tight end Dustin Keller back into the lineup for Week 5 against Houston after he missed the previous three games. He'll clear waivers and go on injured reserve. Epps, 24, made the Jets' roster as a former seventh-round pick out of Miami. He had one catch for nine yards.
