    07/11/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

    As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.

    04/27/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDWith Brady in line to serve a four-game suspension to start the season, coach Bill Belichick acknowledged Wednesday that now that the team finally has "some definition with Tom's situation...our priority now is to get Jimmy (Garoppolo) ready for the start of the season," ESPN.com reports.

    As training camp progresses, both Brady and Garoppolo, as well as rookie Jacoby Brissett to a lesser degree, will see their share of practice reps. Per Belichick, "Tom will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of our schedule, and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go." Garoppolo is thus slated to start the first four games of the coming season for the Patriots, while Brady will be eligible to return to action in Week 5 against the Browns.

    07/29/16RBMatt ForteHamstringPROBABLEJets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey recently suggested he will adjust his system as necessary to suit Forte's strengths, ESPN.com reports.

    Asked how Forte will fit in his scheme, Gailey simply replied, "That's not the question. The question is, how do we adjust the system to fit Matt Forte?" Fortunately for all parties, Forte is one of the better pass-catching backs in NFL history, which should make him a natural fit in Gailey's spread attack. Bilal Powell will likely have a role and Khiry Robinson could also be in the mix, but the Jets seemingly intend for Forte to join Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker as centerpieces of the offense. The team has an unimpressive group of tight ends, along with shaky depth behind its top duo at wideout.

    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 (wrist) is listed as day-to-day according to head coach Todd Bowles, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

    After undergoing offseason wrist surgery, Revis subsequently missed the entirety of the Jets' offseason program with the expectation to return in time for training camp. No setbacks in his rehabilitation have been reported, though, so the Jets are likely just being cautious with their veteran cornerback during the commencement of training camp.

    07/11/16WRDevin SmithKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Jets placed Smith (knee) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Smith had torn his ACL last December and was not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The team has yet to detail any sort of timeline for his return, however, leaving him questionable to play Week 1. Entering his second season in the league, the Ohio State product is expected to assume a larger role on offense in 2016 due to his open-field speed and ability to stretch the field in the passing game.

    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.
