    07/22/16DLJ.J. WattBackQUESTIONABLEWatt (back) will need at least eight weeks before he is able to return to the field following back surgery Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Watt's surgery indeed did turn out to be the result of a herniated disk suffered in 2015-16. Initial reports stated that Watt would take six-to-eight weeks to recover enough to be able to suit up for the Texans, but now there are reports that recovery would take eight weeks minimum. That would put Watt's return date at Sept. 15, four days too late for Houston's season opener against the Bears. Other reports are claiming that rehabilitation could take up to 10 weeks. In any case, the super-star defensive end is in serious danger of missing his first ever NFL game.

    07/11/16DBLonnie BallentineKneePROBABLEBallentine (knee) expects to be ready for training camp, The Houston Chronicle reports.

    Mr. Irrelevant of the 2014 NFL Draft, Ballentine suffered tears to both his MCL and PCL after dislocating his left knee in October of 2015. He will be over 10 months removed from the injury when training camp opens, though, and will be competing for a role on special teams and as a depth linebacker.

    07/11/16DBCharles JamesFootPROBABLEJames (foot) will be ready for the start of training camp, the Texans' official site reports.

    James reportedly played through a stress fracture in his foot for over a month before suffering a complete fracture and landing on injured reserve in December. Subsequently, he missed the near-entirety of Houston's offseason program, but hasn't reported any setbacks and will be ready for the start of training camp.

    05/17/16RBArian FosterAchillesQUESTIONABLEThe Dolphins and Foster (Achilles) agreed to a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After getting a baseline on Foster's recovery from a torn Achilles in late March, the Dolphins' medical staff must have been impressed enough with his recovery on his second go-around Monday to give the front office the thumb's up. Considering his age (30 next month) and the fact he's nine months removed from the devastating injury, he'll more than likely ease into training camp. However, his competition includes two unproven products -- second-year back Jay Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake (hamstring) -- which provides a path to relevance for Foster. On the other hand, the final stages of Foster's rehab will ultimately dictate when he'll be able to make an impact.

    07/11/16TEJace AmaroShoulderPROBABLEAmaro (shoulder) could be used as an H-back or fullback this season, though he believes he should be used as a pass-catching tight end, ESPN.com reports.

    Amaro missed all of last season due to a torn labrum, and with the current coaching staff unfamiliar with him after they took over last season, it's unclear what kind of role he will be given. With Jeff Cumberland gone, the Jets will have Amaro compete with Kellen Davis and Zach Sudfeld, which is hardly considerable competition for a player who was a significant part of the passing game in college at Texas Tech.

    07/11/16TEKellen DavisThumbPROBABLEDavis will miss the remainder of OTAs after undergoing surgery on a torn ligament in his right thumb, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports

    According to head coach Todd Bowles, Davis will be ready for the beginning of training camp in late July. The veteran tight end only had three receptions last season but could see an expanded role in 2016 after the Jets cut Jeff Cumberland earlier in the offseason.

    07/11/16KNick FolkQuadricepsPROBABLEFolk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

    Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.

    07/11/16DBDarrelle RevisWristPROBABLERevis practiced Wednesday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his wrist in March, NJ.com reports.

    Revis was limited in his work, but it's certainly a major step in the right direction. Despite the return, it remains unclear if Revis will be able to full participate in training camp next month.

    07/11/16WRDevin SmithKneeQUESTIONABLESmith (knee) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, making him "doubtful" to play in Week 1 against the Bengals, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

    The recovery timetable for an ACL tear has dwindled in recent years, but such injuries need to be explored on a case-by-case basis. Considering Smith's rookie campaign came to a close in Week 14, it's no surprise that the final stages of his rehabilitation will extend into training camp, at least, and potentially into the regular season. Once healthy, though, he'll have a prime opportunity to succeed in a receiving corps that's unproven behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

    07/11/16DLMuhammad WilkersonLegPROBABLEWikerson said Wednesday that he expects to be fully recovered from his broken right leg in time to play in Week 1, the Associated Press reports.

    Wilkerson, who suffered the injury in the last week of the 2015 season, didn't specify when he would be able to start participating in training camp, but that his rehab is progressing quickly. He recently signed a new five-year, $85 million contract and is expected to be a major focal point of the Jets' pass rush after picking up 12 sacks last year.

    (Updated 07/21/2016)
    06/30/16DLSheldon RichardsonSuspensionSUSPENDRichardson has been suspended for Week 1's matchup with the Bengals after violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Richardson will be eligible to return to the active roster the Monday after Week 1 concludes. In January the defensive lineman pleaded guilty to resisting arrest following a road race incident that took place last July. As a Pro Bowler and former Defensive Rookie of the Year, Richardson plays an instrumental role in the Jets' hard-nosed defense but in his absence the team will likely turn to Leonard Williams and Jarvis Jenkins to carry more of a workload.
