Clowney won't require offseason foot surgery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
In Week 16, Clowney sustained a foot injury that claimed his availability in the season finale and the wild-card loss to the Chiefs. Prior to that unfortunate development, he realized some of his vast potential as a pass rusher, racking up 4.5 sacks among 40 tackles (27 solo) and a forced fumble. If he can ever avoid the injury bug, he would augment an already imposing pass-rushing duo of J.J. Watt (groin) and Whitney Mercilus.
Foster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins on Tuesday but left without a contract offer, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Afterward, Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Foster is "a little bit away" from being healthy.
Foster is five months removed from tearing the Achilles in his right foot, so it's no surprise that he remains in the midst of rehabilitation. Coming off a three-year span in which he appeared in 25 of a possible 48 games, an incentive-laden deal is likely in the 29-year-old's future, but a team such as the Dolphins could use his veteran presence to groom 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi with Lamar Miller poised to serve as Foster's replacement in Houston. While other organizations are sure to inquire about Foster, his status for the 2016 campaign remains in limbo.
Watt is nearly recovered from offseason groin surgery, Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports. "I am very, very close to being back to 100 percent," he said recently.
At the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, Watt was apparently sporting five partially or full torn core muscles, yet the ailments didn't stop him from nabbing his third NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in a four-year span. In particular, he notched 17.5 sacks among 76 tackles last season, to which he added three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in a full 16-game slate.
Amaro (shoulder) is back in uniform and expected to be ready for offseason workouts, the team's official website reports.
Amaro missed all of last season due to his shoulder injury, but if he can get up to speed quickly, he could be a decent option in the passing game. Unfortunately, the Jets have a plethora of weapons there, including Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Matt Forte, which likely means Amaro isn't heading for a huge season.
The Jets placed Folk (quad) on injured reserve Tuesday.
It appeared Folk would be able to return to action later this year despite straining his quad Sunday against the Jaguars, but the Jets ultimiately decided to place him on injured reserve, which opens up a roster spot but brings Folk's season to a close. Randy Bullock will take over as the Jets' kicker moving forward.
Revis had the pins removed from his surgically repaired wrist last week, but he will still be held out of offseason practices, ESPN.com reports.
Revis has surgery in mid-March, and while he isn't expected to participate in offseason activities, he should be okay for training camp. Marcus Williams and Dexter McDougle will get some first-team reps at practice while Revis is out.
Stacy was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
This move was considered a formality as Stacy was expected to miss the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle during last Thursday's game against the Bills. Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will likely see a few extra opportunities out of the backfield with Stacy now out, but unless starting running back Chris Ivory goes down with an injury, neither should be expected to be a reliable fantasy contributor.
Sudfeld (knee) re-signed with the Jets on Thursday, NJ.com reports.
The Jets cut Jeff Cumberland recently, which theoretically moves Sudfeld up the depth chart, but with Jace Amaro expected to have a big impact this season, Sudfeld's fantasy upside remains fairly limited.
Wilkerson (leg) is not expected to attend the Jets' offseason program, NFL.com reports.
Wilkerson, who is still rehabbing from the broken fibula he suffered in Week 17, has yet to sign his $15.7 million franchise tag, as he continues to seek a long-term deal with the Jets. While his stance on a new contract could lead the Jets to entertain trade interest in him during the draft, Wilkerson's career-best 64 tackles and 12 sacks make him one of the league's best defensive lineman, and someone New York could obviously use after losing nose tackle Damon Harrison this offseason.
