New York Jets release veteran running back Tony Fisher

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -The New York Jets released veteran running back Tony Fisher on Tuesday, and signed running back Tony Hollings on Tuesday.

Fisher, who spent last season with St. Louis after four years with Green Bay, was signed by the Jets last Friday to add depth to their running back corps after Cedric Houston left the team abruptly.

Fisher, 27, played in eight games for the Rams last season, gaining nine yards on six carries and catching 14 passes for 159 yards before going on injured reserve with a broken right forearm. A free agent signing out of Notre Dame in 2002, Fisher served as a backup to Ahman Green with the Packers for years.

Hollings, 25, had 149 yards rushing yards in three seasons with the Houston Texans. He didn't play in the NFL last year after being waived by Indianapolis after training camp last year.
