Position Listing
Erin Henderson
Henderson's (undisclosed) contract option for the 2017 season has been declined by the Jets, making him a free agent, Connor Hughes of 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.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sheldon Richardson
Richardson had eight tackles, including a sack, during Sunday's win over the Ravens.

After picking up 13 sacks in 27 games over the last two years, Richardson has really struggled to get the quarterback this season, as he now has just 1.5 sacks through six games (he was suspended for the season-opener). Given his lack of sacks, and his fairly pedestrian tackle totals, he hasn't been a strong fantasy IDP option.

Zach Triner
No Updates
Darryl Roberts
Roberts (shoulder) was a full participant at practice on Thursday.

Roberts was forced to leave Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh after injuring his shoulder. His return to practice is a positive sign and he should be expected to play in the Jets' Week 6 matchup with Houston.

Deshon Foxx
Foxx signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Foxx was released by the Seahawks prior to the beginning of the regular season due to a hamstring injury and spent the entire season in free agency. He'll now look to solidify himself as a depth option for the Jets throughout the offseason in the hopes of claiming a spot on the 53-man roster next year.

Brandon Burks
Burks (illness) practiced fully Thursday.

Burks sat out Wednesday's practice, but was back on the field Thursday. In the process, he was the only running back out there for the Jets, with Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Brandon Wilds all sitting out the session.

Matt Forte
According 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.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nick Marshall
Marshall (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.

Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bruce Carter
Carter (quadriceps) is active for Monday night's game against the Colts.

Carter fortunately escaped last weekend's bout with the Patriots setback-free. As usual, he projects to rotate in at inside linebacker behind David Harris and Darron Lee.

Juston Burris
Burris (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Burris was unable to practice earlier in the week, but will be good to go Sunday and is slated to provide depth at cornerback per usual.

Kendall James
James (undisclosed) has been placed on the active/PUP list, New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.

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.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Mike Catapano
Catapano (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.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Josh Latham
No Updates
Frank Beltre
The Raiders signed linebacker Bojay Filimoeatui and cornerback Jansen Watson, and waived cornerback Johnny Adams, linebacker Frank Beltre and receiver D.J. Coles, reports the Bay Area News Group.
Jordan Jenkins
Jenkins (calf) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

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.

Josh McCown
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan deferred to head coach Todd Bowles when asked if McCown will enter training camp as the starter, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

McCown signed a one-year contract Monday, joining 2015 fourth-rounder Bryce Petty (shoulder) and 2016 second-rounder Christian Hackenberg in the Jets' quarterback room. The 37-year-old likely will enter training camp as the favorite for the starting gig, but there should at least be some form of competition to give the younger signal-callers a shot to win the job on a rebuilding team. Given his age, injury history and the nature of his team's current roster, McCown is unlikely to make it through the season as the starter even if he wins the Week 1 job.

Charone Peake
Peake (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

After Wednesday's practice session, Peake returned to the field and appears ready to play in Sunday's divisional matchup with the Dolphins. As the No. 5 wideout on the depth chart, he shouldn't have a particularly important role in the Jets' offensive game plan, but could play a role on special teams.

Anthony Johnson
The Patriots opted to waive Johnson on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

The decision to waive Johnson comes a day after he received his first start of the year. The 23-year-old recorded two tackles in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He is considered a strong candidate to return to the team's practice squad.

Christian Hackenberg
The Jets believe Hackenberg has a higher ceiling than Bryce Petty (shoulder), the NY Daily News reports.

The recent signing of Josh McCown puts another obstacle in Hackenberg's path, following a rookie season in which the second-round draft pick didn't attempt any passes even though the Jets' quarterback corps was decimated by injuries. While Hackenberg's struggles in practice kept him behind Petty on the depth chart, the Jets apparently still believe the former has a higher long-term ceiling than the latter. Hackenberg may well be headed for another season as the No. 3 quarterback, but that doesn't mean he won't have a shot to compete with McCown and Petty for the starting job in training camp. It sounds as if Hackenberg would be a long shot in such a competition, unless he is drastically improved from what the Jets saw in practice last year.

Corey Lemonier
Lemonier was re-signed by the Jets on Thursday.

The Auburn product latched on with the Jets at the end of the 2016 campaign after quarterback Bryce Petty was placed on injured reserve. Although he's been a journeyman to this point in his career, Lemonier is still just 25 and possesses above average athleticism. The Jets' deep linebacking corps will likely relegate him to a special teams role early in the season, however.

Randell Johnson
Johnson has signed with the Jets.

Johnson spent a majority of the season on the Rams' practice squad, but will look to serve as a depth option at linebacker for the Jets behind the likes of Darron Lee and David Harris.

Chandler Catanzaro
Catanzaro didn't receive a restricted free-agent tender from the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Catanzaro was afforded multiple game-winning field-goal attempts last season, namely in Week 1 against the Patriots and Week 7 versus the Seahawks, but he was unable to connect. By season's end, he was successful on just 21 of 28 field goals and 43 of 47 extra points, barely eking out triple-digit points for the third consecutive campaign. The Cardinals signaled that they may be moving on with Thursday's signing of veteran placekicker Phil Dawson, but there's a chance Catanzaro could re-sign at a lesser price than the aforementioned RFA tender in order to let the best man take the role in 2017.

Marcus Gilchrist
Gilchrist (knee) may eventually be released, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Currently rehabbing from a torn patellar 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.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Donald Hawkins
The Cowboys announced the signing of two draft picks. 

The team signed fifth-round defensive end Ryan Russell, out of Purdue, and seventh-round linebacker Mark Nzeocha, out of Wyoming.

The team also waived linebacker Troy Davis and tackle Donald Hawkins while releasing linebacker Dekoda Watson

Julian Stanford
Stanford (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.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Antonio Allen
Allen (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.

Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Austin Seferian-Jenkins
Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Rich Cimini of 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.

Suspension - Out for the start of training camp
Darius Jennings
Jennings has signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets.

Jennings (5-10, 169) went undrafted out of Virginia in 2015 but ultimately caught 14 passes for 117 yards for the Browns during his rookie season. He'll need to piece together an impressive offseason to climb up the depth chart.

Lac Edwards
No Updates
Darron Lee
Lee (ankle) is ready to play in Sunday's game against the Rams, ESPN reports.

Lee has missed three consecutive games with a sprained ankle, but returned to practice this week and is evidently nearing full health. His availability likely spells a significant decrease in playing time for Julian Stanford.

Quinton Patton
The Jets and Patton (foot) agreed to terms on a contract Thursday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

A fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2013, Patton managed just six receptions across 10 games in his first two seasons before landing a regular role within the offense. Despite the uptick in snaps beginning in 2015, uninspiring offenses under the direction of head coaches Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly didn't translate to significant output, as evidenced by a combined 67 catches (on 120 targets) for 802 yards and one touchdown during that stretch. With the move to New York, Patton will now be jostling with a number of options -- wideouts Eric Decker (shoulder), Quincy Enunwa, and Robby Anderson, plus pass-catching backs Matt Forte (knee) and Bilal Powell -- in an offense led by graybeard quarterback Josh McCown.

Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Eric Decker
Decker (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.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jeff Adams
Texans offensive tackle Jeff Adams (knee) was placed on the injured reserve, the Texans' official site reports.

Adams is out for the season, leaving the Texans to fill a void in the offensive line at left guard.

Kelvin Beachum
Steelers tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee) is doubftul to return after being carted to the locker room Sunday against Arizona.

Beachum fell to the ground during a running play in the second quarter, and was helped off the field.

Brandin Bryant
No Updates
Kenny Anunike
Anunike signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets.

Anunike played three games for the Broncos in 2015 but was then waived by the team this past August. He spent the majority of the last offseason on the Physically Unable to Perform list due to a knee injury but now looks to solidify himself as a reserve defensive lineman in New York.

Robby Anderson
Anderson recorded 42 receptions for 587 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games with the Jets this season.

Anderson showed promise throughout his rookie season, pairing a solid route-running ability with speed. He emerged as a favorite target of fellow rookie Bryce Petty, as the two formed a connection throughout the offseason last year. Just like last offseason, Anderson will continue to work out with former Pro Bowl wideout Chad Johnson, according to Ethan Greenburg of the team's official site. "I'm going to put a lot of work in this offseason. There are a couple things I really want to focus on to get better", Anderson noted. He'll look to take the jump next season in the hopes of securing a top wideout spot on the depth chart.

Julien Obioha
Obioha 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.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Myles White
White signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

White has bounced around the league the past three years, including stints with the Packers, Giants, and Jets. He heads back to the Jets with some baseline knowledge of the offense after spending six weeks of the season on the team's practice squad.

Deon Simon
Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) did not travel with the team to London, where the team plays the Dolphins on Sunday.

With the Jets having waived nose tackle Deon Simon after practice Wednesday, we'd expect the team to add tight end depth to the roster in advance of the game.

Brandon Shell
No Updates
Quincy Enunwa
Former teammate Brandon Marshall spoke highly of Enunwa and the Jets' other young wide receivers, reports. "Quincy [Enunwa] and Robbie [Anderson] and Jalin [Marshall], leaving that room behind -- that is a special room, a young and talented group," said Marshall.

With Brandon Marshall joining the other New York football team, Enunwa is positioned to build on his 2016 breakout season while serving as the No. 2 wide receiver behind only Eric Decker (shoulder). The Jets could still add competition for targets and snaps before the season, but such a development would probably impact the likes of Robbie Anderson, Charone Peake and Jalin Marshall (suspension) more so than Enunwa. The team also hopes to finally get something out of injury-plagued 2015 second-round selection Devin Smith, who has only 10 catches in 14 career appearances.

Leonard Williams
Williams recorded half a sack along with 10 tackles Monday against the Colts.

Williams broke a four-game drought and moved to 6.5 sacks on the season. He showed what he's capable of when he registered 4.5 sacks in the first five games of 2016, and his ability to get hot makes him a player who could help teams make a title run in IDP leagues.

Bryce Petty
Despite 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 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.

Shoulder - Labrum - Questionable for the start of training camp
Darrelle Revis
Revis might consider a return to New England, the Boston Herald reports.

Coming off an ugly season in which he looked nothing like his former self, Revis was involved in a February incident that initially led to four felony charges. Subsequently released by the Jets, the 31-year-old cornerback was cleared of all charges Wednesday, and he now intends to resume his career. He said he's already lost 10 pounds while working with a new trainer -- essentially acknowledging that he was overweight last season. With his value at its lowest point ever, Revis could be a low-cost replacement for Patriots CB Malcolm Butler, who's been the subject of constant trade rumors this offseason. The Steelers could also be a fit for the Pennsylvania native and former Pitt Panther, offering a competitive roster that's a bit shaky at cornerback.

Muhammad Wilkerson
Wilkerson (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest against the Bills.

Wilkerson's ankle injury isn't severe enough to keep him sidelined in Week 17, so he figures to start at defensive end per usual.

Nick Mangold
Mangold has been released by the Jets, Rich Cimini of reports.

Mangold ended the 2016 on injured reserve due to an ankle injury after appearing in just eight games. In his 11-year career with the Jets, he started 164 out of 176 games leading to seven Pro Bowl selections.

Khiry Robinson
Robinson 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 he may struggle to sign with another team until his leg is healed and he's able to pass a physical.

Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Dexter McDougle
McDougle was promoted to the Jets' active roster on Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of Sportsnet New York reports.

McDougle was promoted due to the Jets possibly being without both Buster Skrine (knee) and Marcus Williams (ankle) in Week 10. He's unlikely to be much more than a depth corner and special teams player.

Bilal Powell
Powell rushed 22 times for 122 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Bills. He finishes the season with 131 carries for 722 yards and three touchdowns and 58 catches for 388 receiving yards and two scores.

Powell played very well down the stretch in place of the injured Matt Forte (knee), rushing for over 120 yards in two of his last four games. Forte is expected back next season, so it's tough to see Powell getting enough opportunities to be a major fantasy contributor, though if Forte falls victim to the injury bug again, Powell has the ability to take over.

Frankie Hammond
Hammond has signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets.

Hammond spent this past season on the Chiefs practice squad. Since entering the league as an undrafted rookie in 2014, Hammond has featured in 25 games, primarily making his impact felt as a punt returner. However, in order to make the Jets roster ahead of next season, he may need to show more ability as a pass-catcher. To this point, Hammond boasts just four career receptions.

Brandon Bostick
The Jets chose not to tender Bostick, making him an unrestricted free agent, the New York Post reports.

The lowest restricted free agent tender still costs $1.8 million, which is significantly more than the type of near-minimum contract Bostick will likely receive. He caught only eight passes in 16 games last season, serving mostly as the No. 2 or 3 tight end. Regardless of where he lands, the 27-year-old likely will have to fight for a roster spot in training camp.

Calvin Pryor
The Jets are unlikely to exercise Pryor's fifth-year option, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Pryor, the Jets' first-rounder from 2014, disappointed in 2016 after coming off a promising 2015 campaign. While he's locked in as the team's starting strong safety for this upcoming season, the Jets can save $7 million by not picking up his fifth-year option for 2018. If that's what the team ultimately decides to do, Pryor looks to be entering a contract year in which he'll need to step up his play so he can position himself well for his impending free agency.

Bryson Keeton
Keeton signed a contract with the Jets on Friday.

Keeton is an undrafted rookie out of Montana State who has spent the entire season thus far on the Jets' practice squad. It isn't certain how much playing time he'll receive in his first game as a pro.

Tanner Purdum
Long snapper Tanner Purdum has re-signed with the Jets, according to the Associated Press.

Purdum, 29, has played 783 snaps since joining the Jets. He has never fumbled a snap, had a wild snap or been penalized.

Julian Howsare
Howsare signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Howsare spent the past two offseasons with the Jets but has failed to make the 53-man roster each time. He spent 12 weeks on the Jets' practice squad this year and will look to solidify himself as the team's fullback after playing linebacker in college.

Ryan Fitzpatrick
The Jets have voided Fitzpatrick's contract, Newsday reports.

Fitzpatrick more or less held the Jets hostage last offseason, inking a two-year contract on July 27, with only the first season guaranteed. Immediately confirmed as the starting quarterback over Geno Smith, Fitzpatrick was unable to uphold his standard from 2015. One factor in Fitzpatrick's dismal play was Eric Decker's season-ending torn rotator cuff, but with weapons like Brandon Marshall (hip) and Matt Forte (knee) on his side, the graybeard signal-caller was unable to display a modicum of consistency. The first stumbling block was a six-interception performance in Week 2, but Fitzpatrick was also benched twice for the likes of Smith (in Week 7 before the latter suffered a torn ACL in that game) and rookie Bryce Petty (at halftime in Week 13). Poised to hit the free-agent market on March 9, the best-case scenario for Fitzpatrick may be bridging the gap to a younger QB for a season or two.

Doug Middleton
No Updates
Josh Martin
Martin re-signed with the Jets on Thursday.

The 25-year-old special teams ace will return to the Jets in 2017 after one of his best professional season to date. He logged 14 tackles on special teams and also chipped in 0.5 sacks. He'll likely remain in a special teams-heavy role given the Jets' depth at linebacker.

Morris Claiborne
Claiborne (ribs) signed his contract with the Jets on Saturday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The 27-year-old Claiborne agreed to a one-year deal worth $5 million Friday. He'll look to revive his career in New York after five injury-filled seasons with Dallas.

Ribs - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kellen Davis
Davis (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.

Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
David Harris
Harris posted 11 tackles Sunday against the Patriots.

Harris failed to surpass six tackles in any of his first eight games to start the season, but he's now recorded 11 in each of his last two games. The 32-year-old has been a tackling machine for years, and it appears that he's back on track, making him an excellent player to add in IDP leagues.

Jalin Marshall
Marshall 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.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 of the 2017 season
Lawrence Thomas
Thomas (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.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Clady
The Broncos placed left tackle Ryan Clady on injured reserve due to a torn ACL on Sunday, the team announced. 

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. 

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Freddie Bishop
A day after signing defensive lineman Israel Idonije, the Lions released defensive end Freddie Bishop, according to Bishop wasn't expected to be a major contributor. 
Craig Watts
The Chargers announced their final round of roster cuts on Saturday, paring their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

The following players were let go by San Diego: WR Vincent Brown, LB Victor Aiyewa, DT Chas Alecxih, WR Torrence Allen, CB Crezdon Butler, S Alden Darby, CB Greg Ducre, TE Mike Flacco, T Michael Harris , WR Javontee Herndon, OLB Thomas Keiser, DL Joe Kruger, OLB Cordarro Law, S Adrian Phillips, WR Tevin Reese, T Jeremiah Sirles, QB Brad Sorensen, OLB Colton Underwood, G Craig Watts, T Kenny Wiggins, C Khalil Wilkes and DL Doug Worthington.
Rontez Miles
Miles recorded just one tackle during the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Miles stepped up after Calvin Pryor briefly left the game due to injury. The 27-year-old has not seen a lot of action since undergoing season-ending surgery on his shin back in 2014.

Ben Ijalana
Ijalana is slated to sign a two-year, $11 million deal with the Jets on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Ijalana's deal will keep him with the Jets through the 2018 season. The 6-4, 337 pound lineman played left tackle last season.

Wesley Johnson
Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin has been declared inactive for Week 17’s game against the Dolphins.

Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.

Also listed as inactive are T.J. Barnes, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Nick Mangold, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.

James Carpenter
The Jets will sign free agent guard James Carpenter to a four-year, $19 million deal, reports Yahoo Sports. Carpenter started 39 games for the Seahawks over the past four seasons.

Deals can't be signed until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Ross Martin
No Updates
Marcus Williams
Williams (ankle) is active for Monday night's game against the Colts.

Williams will make his return from a high-ankle sprain that forced him from playing in the past two games.

Lorenzo Mauldin
Mauldin 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.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Wilds
Wilds (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

With Matt Forte out, Bilal Powell is in line to start Sunday's game, with Wilds and Brandon Burks on hand to work in complementary roles in the Jets' Week 17 offense.

Romar Morris
Morris 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.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jason Vander Laan

Claude Pelon
No Updates
Breno Giacomini
Free agent tackle Corey Hilliard is expected to meet with the Jets, per Pro Football Talk.

Hilliard has played eight seasons in the NFL, the last six with the Lions.

Hilliard missed most of 2014 with a foot injury suffered during the season opener.

If the Jets sign Hilliard it's expected he'll serve as a swing tackle behind D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Breno Giacomini.
Back - Questionable for the start of training camp
Dakota Dozier
The Jets have ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's divisional clash against the Patriots in Week 16: T.J. Barnes, Dakota Dozier, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Rontez Miles, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.
Brent Qvale
Qvale is "iffy" with a hamstring injury in advance of Week 15, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

If Qvale is unable to go come Sunday, look for rookie Brandon Shell to get the first start of his career at right tackle.

Devin Smith
Smith is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, according to Eric Allen of the team's official website.

Smith did not see the field for last Monday's game against the Colts despite not being on the injury report, but he is apparently ready to make his season debut after recovering from a torn ACL suffered last December. His return is certainly a boost to the Jets' receiving corps, though any kind of breakout performance is unlikely.

Ronald Martin
Martin was called up from the practice squad Tuesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

With Marcus Gilchrist landing on injured reserve Tuesday, the Jets decided to promote Martin. The safety had previously spent time with the team in the preseason before being waived and eventually signed back on to the practice squad. He'll likely compete with Doug Middleton for defensive reps.

Steve McLendon
McLendon (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.

Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Braedon Bowman
Bowman (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.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brian Winters
The Jets ruled out linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), wideout Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and offensive lineman Brian Winters (knee) from Thursday's game at New England.
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Buster Skrine
Skrine (concussion) practiced in full Thursday.

Skrine sustained a concussion in Week 14 and was unable to suit up for last Sunday's game against the Dolphins. While it isn't certain if he's officially cleared concussion protocol yet, Skrine's uninhibited participation in Thursday's practice suggests he's on the right track to play Saturday versus the Patriots.
