FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets have signed cornerback LeQuan Lewis to the active roster, and added cornerback Marcus Williams to the practice squad.

Lewis was signed by the Jets late in training camp and had an interception in the preseason finale at Philadelphia. He initially made New York's 53-man roster, but was cut when the Jets claimed cornerback Leon McFadden off waivers from Cleveland. Lewis was signed to the Jets' practice squad a day later.

Williams was an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State who spent time with the Houston Texans before being released Tuesday.
