It originally sounded as if Smith might see a small sample of snaps during the Jets' final preseason game, but that is no longer the case. In all likelihood Bryce Petty will get the start and rookie Christian Hackenberg will follow suit. Smith's projected absence assures his role as the team's clear-cut backup behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Richardson missed the team's opener due to a one-week suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. He'll be back at practice Monday and should return to the starting lineup at defensive end for the Jets' Week 2 matchup with the Bills. Richardson started 11 games during his 2015 campaign following a four-game suspension to start the year and finished with 35 tackles and five sacks.
The Jets plan to limit Forte on Wednesdays, but he's in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Through three weeks, Forte has logged 67 carries, a figure topped only by LeGarrette Blount (75), Lamar Miller (74) and Ezekiel Elliott (71). In the process, Forte has racked up 261 rushing yards with three TDs, to go along with nine catches for 67 yards.
Carter was active in Week 1 but never saw the field, and he likely isn't in line for much playing time against Buffalo unless an injury forces him onto the field for extended time.
Burris a big corner who might not have the athleticism to run alongside the league's faster receivers, but college quarterbacks generally declined to throw his way at North Carolina State. The Jets will presumably count on Burris to provide some push in press coverage.
Jenkins started all 15 games he played for the Bears last season, recording a career-high 32 tackles and four sacks while doing so. In joining the Jets, Jenkins bolsters their front-seven options with another experienced defender.
The former sixth round pick out of Maine serves primarily as a depth cornerback for the Jets. James will have to prove his worth throughout training camp and the preseason to ensure a spot on the team come September.
"Every time I step on the field now it's with purpose and with extra vigor that I never really had," Catapano said. "It feels great. I feel better than ever."
Catapano played in 15 games during his rookie season in 2013 and he totaled four tackles and one sack. He said he's ready to surpass that in 2015.
"I'm ready to show that I offer a lot to this team. I'm ready to step up in big situations and starting situations," Catapano said. "I just want to keep getting better every day… and play to the best of my abilities."
Jenkins missed practice during the week and was doubtful to play on Thursday, making his inactive status unsurprising. Now missing his second straight game, it's unclear when the rookie will make his debut, but the long week prior to the team's Week 3 game may be enough for him to return by then.
A seventh-round rookie who spent most of his college career buried on a deep Clemson depth chart, Peake got off to a strong start in his bid to earn a roster spot with the Jets. He made a gorgeous sideline catch for a 17-yard touchdown late in the second quarter, and then had a 19-yard gain midway through the third quarter. While not necessarily a lock to make the team, Peake could conceivably compete for the No. 4 wideout role in an offense that frequently used four-wide formations last year. He ran a 4.45 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine while checking in at 6-foot-2, 209 pounds.
Bryce Petty played the entire second half for the Jets and appears to be in serious contention for the backup job. With the Jets expected to play most of their starters into the second half against the Giants, Hackenberg will only have their final preseason game to make a case for a roster spot.
Prior to his release, Pope led Seattle with 162 rushing yards during preseason play. Despite the Seahawks' interest in keeping the Jacksonville State product on the team's practice squad, the Jets were able to snag the rookie before he could clear waivers. Given the Jets' depth at running back, Pope figures to make his biggest impact on special teams.
Although Blake Bortles through 40 passes in this game, Gilchrist failed to record an interception in his third straight contest. In addition, he now has recorded fewer than four tackles in five of his last seven games.
Allen spent the entirety of the 2015 season recovering from a torn achilles he suffered during training camp, and signed with the Texans in March of 2016 before being released by the team during final roster cuts. However, it didn't take long for Allen to get scooped up by his old squad. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the Jets, starting 18 of 38 games, but returns to New York firmly entrenched behind Marcus Gilchrist on the free safety depth chart.
Lee is generally light to project as a 3-4 inside linebacker, but coach Todd Bowles might have seen Deone Bucannon in Arizona last year and got some ideas. Lee is an exceptional athlete for a linebacker, boasting 4.47 speed and a 133-inch broad jump, and he should prove to be a disruptive presence under Bowles' watch. In addition to his burning athleticism, Lee demonstrated at least adequate instincts at Ohio State and consistently showed a high motor.
The Jets' passing game was abysmal Sunday, with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing six interceptions, including five in the second half. While the picks certainly didn't help, Decker was also not targeted all that much, as Quincy Enunwa (11), Brandon Marshall (10) and Bilal Powell (seven) all had more passes thrown their way. Unfortunately for Decker, the schedule doesn't provide much optimism that he'll bounce back, as the Jets will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to face the Steelers and Cardinals.
Anderson was promoted to the Jets' first-team offense for Saturday's game in light of Brandon Marshall (hip), Quincy Enunwa (concussion) and Kenbrell Thompkins (groin) being injured, and impressed once again. The undrafted rookie led New York in receptions, targets and yards, while also scoring for the second straight game. Although Anderson's touchdown came during the fourth quarter, he's now totaled 10 receptions for 196 yards and two scores in the Jets' last two exhibition tilts. With great size, speed and production, Anderson seems to have everything necessary to make New York's regular season roster and push for higher pegging after another strong showing.
While the number of targets for Enunwa is certainly encouraging, only four receptions is a disappointment. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was downright awful Sunday, as he was picked off six times, including five in the second half, giving the Jets' receivers little to work with for fantasy purposes. Top wideout Brandon Marshall came in with knee and foot injuries, though he still had 10 targets, while Eric Decker was limited to just six, showing that Fitzpatrick is getting more comfortable throwing to Enunwa. Unfortunately, the upcoming schedule is very tough, with the Jets hosting the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to face the Steelers and Cardinals.
Williams dealt with a hip injury during the preseason, but was a full participant in practice Friday and looks to be good to go against Cincinnati. He will take his position opposite Muhammad Wilkerson on the defensive line.
Petty's shoulder injury continued to keep him sidelined through practice this week and will leave him inactive for a third straight game to begin his career. As a result, Geno Smith will serve as the Jets' backup to starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick this Sunday.
Revis is expected to be ready all-go for Sunday's tilt with the Seahawks as he'll matchup with Doug Baldwin. His ankle will be something to keep an eye on as Juston Burris could see increased action reps if the team decides to monitor Revis's action.
Wilkerson was very active on the field in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, as he led the team with seven tackles. He also recorded 1.5 sacks. The severity of the veteran linebacker's ankle injury is unknown, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the week.
Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.
McDougle was originally drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft, but his rookie season was quickly derailed by a torn ACL. The Jets had hoped that McDougle would rebound in 2015, but the 25-year-old never seemed to return to his old self after the injury.
Matt Forte received a career-high 30 carries, leaving Powell a mere spectactor for the majority of the night. He did see a more appreciable level of involvement in the Week 1 loss to the Bengals when he tallied four carries and two receptions, so Thursday's meager opportunity may have simply been a case of the Jets opting to stick to a power running game with Forte. Powell did see a solid amount of work in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's first season in New York in 2015, notching a career-best 47 receptions to go along with 70 rushing attempts. Therefore, his involvement figures to adjust into a more predictable pattern as the season unfolds
The 6-foor-3, 250-pound tight end was waived by Green Bay on Monday, about a month after his mistake on an onside kick allowed the Seahawks to come back and win the NFC Championship Game. Bostick spent two seasons with the Packers and registered nine catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. With the addition of Bostick, the Vikings now have five tight ends on the active roster (Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, Chase Ford, Ryan Otten).
Although Pryor only played in 13 games this year, he showed improvement in his second season, as he intercepted the first two passes of his career and increased his tackle total by nine from his rookie year. He's clearly in position to continue his progression, especially with head coach Todd Bowles preparing for his second season with the team's defensive system. Pryor's under contract for two more years with the Jets before the team can choose to exercise a fifth-year option in 2018.
Keeton had his eyes set on providing depth in the defensive backfield for the Jets. Specifically, he was competing with Marcus Williams to backup Buster Skrine at right cornerback. The 23-year-old rookie recorded one pass defended and four tackles in as many preseason games.
The Jets opted to part ways with Howsare after realizing there was no team need for a fullback. Chan Gailey's offense runs much more fluidly without one. Howsare could find a new home at some point this season, but it doesn't seem like the Jets are interested in bringing him back assuming he clears waivers.
Two of Fitzpatrick's interceptions were tipped and picked off in the end zone, but it was still a disastrous outing, with five of the interceptions coming in the second half. Amazingly, the Jets had the ball down only two scores with about five minutes left in the game, but Fitzpatrick couldn't get them into the end zone. He targeted Quincy Enunwa 11 times and Brandon Marshall 10, but neither caught more than four, and Bilal Powell led the team with 41 receiving yards. Fitzpatrick will look to put the horrible performance behind him, though the schedule only gets tougher, as the Jets will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to Pittsburgh and Arizona.
Davis, who was limited on the field Monday, was given the green light for Tuesday's practice session after he injured his ribs during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The Jets have a quick turnaround this week, as they face the Bills on Thursday, so look for more updates on his health to come in the next couple of days.
Harris was listed as questionable heading into the game after being limited in practice all week due to shoulder injury he suffered in Week 2's win over the Bills. The veteran could be closely monitored due to the injury, meaning Bruce Carter could see extra reps in Sunday's contest.
Marshall was unable to practice Wednesday and will now be expected to miss an extended period of time. The Jets will have to deploy a new return man along with Robby Anderson and Charone Peake potentially seeing increased reps at wide receiver.
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.
Clady tore his ACL this past Wednesday during an organized team activity practice. The Broncos signed Ryan Harris to the roster soon after announcing Clady sustained a season-ending injury.
Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.
Deals can't be signed until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
Williams missed the previous two games with a knee injury, but he was able to practice fully all week in preparation for Saturday's game. However, with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie fully healthy heading into the marquee matchup, Williams only figures to see the field in obvious passing situations.
Mauldin was a solid pass-rusher last season, but the Jets will need him to develop into a three-down player after they let Quinton Coples go last season and were forced to use defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson on the weak side. With Damon Harrison off to the Giants, the Jets will need their linebackers to step up in their run defense, which could generate plenty of tackles for Mauldin.
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.
Folk's misses proved to be very costly in a game the Jets ultimately lost by one, with his field-goal miss coming on a 22-yard attempt (in fairness, it was blocked) and his missed extra point coming on his very next try. He was a fairly reliable option last season, and the Jets' offense is good enough to give him enough opportunities to stay fantasy relevant, but Folk is far from a high-end option. Up next is a Week 2 trip to Buffalo.
Those on offense are quarterback Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms, wide receivers Clyde Gates and Stephen Hill, running backs Daryl Richardson and Alex Green, tight end Chris Pantale, linemen Brent Qvale and Caleb Schlauderaff.
The defenders imclude defensive backs Rontez Miles, Jeremy Reeves, Johnny Patrick, Dimitri Patterson and Brandon Dixon, linemen Zach Thompson, Kerry Hyder and Tevita Finau and linebackers Garrett McIntyre and A.J. Edds.
Linebacker Antwan Barnes has been placed on the PUP list.
Smith tore his ACL back in December and was always a strong candidate to be placed on the PUP list. His absence shouldn't shake up the depth chart too much, especially with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker expected to dominate the wideout targets this season.
The 23-year-old appeared in just eight games for the Jets last season, serving mostly as a backup safety. Martin is eligible to be a member of the team's practice squad should be go unclaimed.
McLendon was an unsung player among the Jets' defensive line, with Muhammad Wilkerson (1.5 sacks) and Leonard Williams (2.5 sacks) getting most of the attention Sunday. Despite the strong performance, his playing time isn't likely to be as high in Week 2 when the Jets will have Sheldon Richardson available after a Week 1 suspension.
Bowman will likely serve as a special teamer this season. The Jets rarely use their tight ends other than for blocking purposes, so even if Bowman earned the chance to play on offense, it is unlikely that he would hold great fantasy value.
After Milliner's fifth-year option was declined in the offseason, his inability to contribute this preseason may have made the decision an easy one for the Jets. If he clears waivers, the 2013 first-round pick could revert to injury reserve, but the two parties may instead seek an injury settlement.
Marshall is out there if you need him Sunday, but it's unclear how close to full strength he will operate at. With that in mind, both ESPN's Adam Schefter and ESPN's Rich Cimini suggest that the wideout will likely will be on some sort of snap count in Week 3 that could possibly emphasize third down and red zone work.
Even if he were healthy, Williams would face long odds to make the final roster. Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson are all locks, and Antone Smith was recently signed to compete for the No. 4 job.
The secondary will feature the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie, nickel corner Buster Skrine and free safety Marcus Gilchrist. Plus, first-round pick Leonard Williams will move into the starting lineup due to Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension.
"I believe we can be as good as we want," defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said, per NJ.com. "We can be great. We can be the No. 1 defense in the league. We've just got to come in each and every week improving and do our jobs every Sunday."
The Jets defense is expected to be aggressive, especially with the blitz, under first-year coach Todd Bowles.
"This defense should be a playoff defense," Skrine said. "The defense should get us in the playoffs. We have the defense to it. We've got a lot of talent on this defense. It's just about all coming together."
