03/15/17TEAustin Seferian-JenkinsSuspensionSUSPENDSeferian-Jenkins has been suspended two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

The suspension stems from a DUI arrest in September, which Seferian-Jenkins agreed to a plea deal for at the Hillsborough (Fla.) County Court in mid-February. He's fully expected to take part in the entirety of the preseason, but will then miss the first two games of the season, which means he'll have to forfeit a small portion of his $1.1 million contract. The Jets don't have a proven tight end behind Seferian-Jenkins, so they could look to the free agent market in hopes of adding some extra help at some point prior to training camp.

03/08/17WRJalin MarshallSuspensionSUSPENDMarshall will be suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season after violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

According to sources close to Marshall, the second-year wideout tested positive for Adderall, and it's not clear if he'll file an appeal. Marshall moved up the depth chart following the release of Brandon Marshall last week, but still likely finds himself behind Eric Decker (shoulder), Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson to open 2017. As a rookie, Marshall finished with 14 catches for 162 yards in 10 games while serving as the team's top kick returner.

03/01/17QBGeno SmithKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLESmith (knee) made his one-year deal with the Giants official after passing his physical Monday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Smith is coming off a torn ACL suffered in Week 7 of last season, but after medical testing revealed no red flags with his condition, the former Jets quarterback has now officially switched his colors. According to Smith, he expects be ready by the time training camp rolls around, which bodes well for his chances of securing the Giants' No. 2 gig behind starter Eli Manning, who is yet to miss a single start in his 13-year career due to injury.

01/27/17DLJulien ObiohaUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEObioha spent the 2016 season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Obioha landed on IR in the preseason after being signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent last offseason. He'll look to make the team as a defensive end and special teams player in 2017.

01/26/17DBAntonio AllenConcussionQUESTIONABLEAllen (concussion) was placed on the Jets' injured reserve list Monday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of AP Sports reports.

Allen was waived/injured Saturday, but ultimately cleared waivers and will revert to the Jets' IR.

01/26/17TEBraedon BowmanKneeQUESTIONABLEBowman (knee) has been placed on the injured reserve, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Bowman has been dealing with a knee injury since the lead-up to Week 5. With Bowman likely done for the year, Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick are the Jets' remaining options at tight end with Austin Seferian-Jenkins out due to an injury.

01/26/17DLMike CatapanoKneeQUESTIONABLECatapano (knee) was placed on IR Tuesday, Connor Hughes of New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

Catapano missed last week's game against the Dolphins due to his knee injury and they team since determined that he wouldn't be able to play in the final two weeks of the season. Josh Martin and Freddie Bishop figure to see a few extra reps with Catapano absent for the final couple tilts.

01/26/17TEKellen DavisElbowQUESTIONABLEDavis (elbow) visited the Browns on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

After spending the first five seasons of his career with the Bears, Davis is on the verge of joining his sixth organization in as many years, three of which he's played for. The Browns were actually one of them, rostering the tight end during the 2013 offseason and preseason before axing him just before the start of the regular season. Since leaving Cleveland, he's been available for 45 games, starting 20, with the Seahawks, Lions, and Jets over the last four seasons, yet he's managed a measly six receptions (on 19 targets) for 50 yards and two touchdowns. In 2016, he was unable to haul in his only target before landing on IR with an elbow injury, so he's clearly reaching the end of the line as a professional.

01/26/17WREric DeckerShoulderQUESTIONABLEDecker (shoulder) will be given time to rehab before the Jets evaluate his future, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

The Jets have already parted ways with some of their top performers from recent years, releasing CB Darrelle Revis and C Nick Mangold, in addition to trading WR Brandon Marshall to the Giants. While this looks to be as close to a full rebuild as one ever sees in the NFL, it shouldn't be assumed the team will release Decker, who carries reasonable cap hits of $8.75 million (2017) and $9 million (2018) for the final two seasons of his contract. He also just celebrated his 30th birthday this past week, whereas Marshall, Mangold and Revis will all be at least 32 before Week 1. Decker is expected to participate in the non-contact portions of OTAs, and while he isn't a lock to be ready for training camp, the team hopes he'll be available Week 1. It is still possible he'll be released after he passes a physical, which he presumably won't be able to do for another few months.

01/26/17RBMatt ForteKneeQUESTIONABLEAccording to head coach Todd Bowles, Forte (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on his torn meniscus Friday, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Forte missed the final two games of the season due to the injury, as he ended his first season in New York with 813 yards and seven touchdowns on 218 rushing attempts to go along with 30 receptions for 263 yards and one touchdown. The veteran back is under contract through the 2018 season, but is coming off the worst season of his career, so the Jets may look to pursue alternative options next season.

01/26/17DBMarcus GilchristKneeQUESTIONABLEGilchrist (knee) may eventually be released, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Currently rehabbing from a torn patellar tendon suffered in December, the 28-year-old safety won't be able to pass a physical anytime soon. Once he's able to do so, Gilchrist could be part of the Jets' veteran purge that has already sent WR Brandon Marshall, C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis out of town.

01/26/17LBErin HendersonUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEHenderson's (undisclosed) contract option for the 2017 season has been declined by the Jets, making him a free agent, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

Henderson's release will create over $2.5 million in cap space for the Jets. After posting 45 tackles and forcing two fumbles in his 2015 return to the league, Henderson managed 21 stops in five games before being placed on the non-football injury list this past season. With Henderson out of the picture, 2016 first-rounder Darron Lee is now cemented as a starter at inside linebacker for New York.

01/26/17RBRomar MorrisShoulderQUESTIONABLEMorris was waived by the Jets on Monday with an injury designation, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Morris was competing for a spot in the crowded Jets backfield prior to being released. He injured his shoulder and will require surgery, which was the reason for the team deciding to part ways. He'll be eligible for the injured reserve list if he clears waivers.

(Updated 08/29/2016)
01/26/17QBBryce PettyShoulder - LabrumQUESTIONABLEDespite the signing of Josh McCown on Monday, Petty (shoulder) is a good bet to start for the Jets during the 2017 season, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

The addition of McCown indicates that the Jets are in rebuilding mode, as the veteran will enter next season as a certified 38-year-old graybeard. Further working in Petty's favor is McCown's inability to stay on the field. Over the past two campaigns, McCown has managed just 13 appearances (11 starts) due to two broken collarbones and multiple rib fractures. Furthermore, he's take the field more than 10 times in a given season just twice in 14 years as a professional. Given McCown's age and durability concerns, Petty and 2016 second-round pick Christian Hackenberg are candidates to direct the Jets' offense at some point in the fall. Petty is the more likely candidate to do so after making four starts among six games in 2016, during which he completed 75 of 133 passes (56.4 percent) for 809 yards, three touchdowns, and seven interceptions. However, a portion of his offseason may be consumed by his recovery from surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

01/26/17RBKhiry RobinsonLegQUESTIONABLERobinson (leg) was released by the Jets on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Robinson played in just one game for New York last season before breaking his leg and being placed on injured reserve. He's now an unrestricted free agent, but may struggle to sign with another team until his leg is healed and he's able to pass a physical.

(Updated 03/10/2017)
01/26/17LBJulian StanfordAnkleQUESTIONABLEStanford (ankle) cleared waivers and reverted to the Jets' injured reserve, Dennis Waszak Jr. of AP Sports reports.

Stanford was waived/injured by the Jets on Dec. 7 and reverts to IR because no other team in the league placed a claim on him. He'll look to return to full strength in time for OTAs.

(Updated 12/30/2016)
01/26/17DLLawrence ThomasShoulderQUESTIONABLEThomas (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve, the team announced Thursday.

Just a day after head coach Todd Bowles originally said that Thomas would miss "at least a couple weeks" with a torn labrum, Thomas was placed on injured reserve, so the timetable for his return is still up in the air. Sheldon Richardson and Jarvis Jenkins will likely see an increase in snaps with Thomas out. Jeremy Ross was signed Thursday to the team's open roster spot.

01/02/17DBNick MarshallHamstringQUESTIONABLEMarshall (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Bills.

This is the first absence for Marshall due to his current hamstring injury. The 24-year-old has only played special teams this season, so his absence won't open up much playing time for his fellow teammates.

01/02/17LBLorenzo MauldinAnkleQUESTIONABLEMauldin indicated Monday that he was dealing with a partially torn ankle ligament, but won't require surgery, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Mauldin missed the Jets' final five games of the season with the ankle injury, but it looks like he should be fully recovered by the time training camp rolls around in the fall. The linebacker finished 2016 with 16 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception in 11 games.

(Updated 01/02/2017)
01/02/17DLSteve McLendonHamstringQUESTIONABLEMcLendon (hamstring) was ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Bills.

Mauldin injured his hamstring in Week 13 and hasn't played since. Now done for the year, he'll finish his first season in New York with 28 tackles and 2.5 sacks across 11 games.
