CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) -- Jeff Otah has failed his physical again with the Jets, meaning New York's trade with Carolina is off and the offensive tackle is headed back to the Panthers.

Otah was acquired by the Jets last Monday, but failed his physical and was placed on the active-physically unable to perform list. He had seven days -- until Tuesday -- to pass.

Otah was sidelined most of the last two seasons by a nagging knee injury, but New York traded a conditional draft pick to Carolina for the former first-rounder to push right tackle Wayne Hunter for the starting job.

The 26-year-old Otah played in only four games last season, then went on injured reserve on Oct. 19 with a left knee injury. He has missed 31 of his last 35 games.
