  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Moves to injured reserve

    Berrios (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    The 26-year-old was labeled doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Bills earlier in the day, and the Jets opted to open a roster spot by moving him to injured reserve. It was a strong year for Berrios, as he caught 46 passes for 431 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing seven times for 40 yards and two additional scores. He was also an effective return man and averaged 30.4 yards on kickoffs and 13.4 yards on punts, plus one return touchdown. Berrios is scheduled to become a free agent at the start of the new league year in March.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Officially doubtful Sunday

    Berrios (quadriceps) is doubtful for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Coach Robert Saleh said Friday morning it wasn't "looking good" for Berrios to play Week 18, and the 26-year-old is now officially doubtful. Jamison Crowder is poised to take over in the slot after missing the past two games. Assuming he's inactive Sunday, Berrios will finish 2021 with 46 receptions for 431 yards and two touchdowns plus seven carries for 40 yards and two additional scores. He also scored one return touchdown and averaged 30.4 yards on kick returns and 13.4 yards on punt returns.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Trending toward Week 18 absence

    Coach Robert Saleh said it's "not looking good" for Berrios (quadriceps) to play Sunday against the Bills, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Berrios was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday due to the quadriceps issue, and it appears his outlook hasn't improved Friday. The 26-year-old had his best game of the season Week 17 against the Buccaneers with eight catches for 65 yards and a touchdown plus 12 rushing yards and another touchdown, but it appears that will be his final game of the 2021 campaign.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Misses another practice

    Berrios (quad) missed practice again Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Cimini notes that coach Robert Saleh Saleh didn't seem overly concerned about Berrios' quad contusion Wednesday, but back-to-back missed practices place the focus on what the wideout is able to do during Friday's practice. Berrios is coming off a fantasy-friendly effort Week 17 in which he logged eight catches for 65 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets to go along with two carries for 12 yards and a rushing score in the Jets' loss to Tampa Bay.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Set to miss practice Wednesday

    Berrios is dealing with a quad contusion and won't practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    That said, the report notes that head coach Robert Saleh said he "isn't overly concerned" about Berrios' quad issue, with the wide receiver's absence Wednesday being more of a maintenance day. If Berrios is able to return to practice Thursday in any capacity, he would presumably be on track to play Sunday against the Bills. Berrios is coming off a big Week 17 game in which he totaled eight receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets to go with two carries for 12 yards and another score. Though Berrios is still likely to see plenty of involvement on offense if available for the season finale, he'll probably see at least a slight drop in targets and touches if one or both of Elijah Moore (quadriceps) and Jamison Crowder (calf) are cleared to play.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Makes Jets history in loss

    Berrios caught eight of 12 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 loss to Tampa Bay. He added 12 yards and a touchdown on two rushing attempts but also lost a fumble.

    Berrios opened the scoring with a one-yard rushing touchdown on a reverse, then displayed excellent balance along the sideline to score on a nine-yard catch in the second quarter and restore New York's seven-point lead. Remarkably, Berrios became the first wide receiver in Jets history to score a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown in the same game. He also led the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. Berrios is making the most of his featured role in the injury-riddled Jets offense, and he'll have some fantasy appeal in the Week 18 season finale against the Bills.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Five catches, kick return TD in win

    Berrios caught five of six targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Jaguars. He added three yards on one rushing attempt and scored a kickoff return touchdown.

    Berrios led New York's depleted receiving corps in catches, targets and receiving yards. In addition to his contributions on offense, Berrios scored a 102-yard kickoff return touchdown in the second quarter. Elijah Moore (quadriceps) -- who is also on the reserve/COVID-19 list -- and Jamison Crowder (calf) both have a chance to return in Week 17 against the Buccaneers, but even one of those two sitting should be enough for Berrios to maintain a prominent role on offense to go with his usage in the return game on special teams.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Replacing Crowder in slot

    Berrios likely will replace Jamison Crowder (doubtful/calf) as the Jets' primary slot receiver this Sunday against Jacksonville, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Berrios has mostly been the Jets' fourth/fifth receiver this year but did top 50 percent snap share in each of the first three games of the season. During that stretch, he averaged 4.7 catches for 50.0 yards on 7.0 targets, in addition to returning kicks and punts. He'll have a big role for the Jets this Sunday but still doesn't have great odds to pile up yardage or score a TD.

  • Jets' Braxton Berrios: Finds end zone in loss

    Berrios caught his only target for 26 yards while rushing twice for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins.

    After leading the team with 10 targets last week, Berrios remained involved in the game plan early, capping New York's first drive with a two-yard touchdown run. He didn't make much of an impact after that point, but neither did any other Jets receiver, as Jamison Crowder led the team with 40 receiving yards and New York didn't score a touchdown through the air. Given the dearth of passable alternatives in New York's passing game, Berrios will have some fantasy appeal in Week 16 against the Jaguars, though that appeal is primarily limited to deeper formats.
