  • Lawrence Cager: Let go by Jets

    Cager was waived by the Jets on Monday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Cager appeared in two games for the Jets last season, recording two catches for 35 yards. The second-year receiver scored a touchdown in the Jets preseason game against the Eagles but clearly it wasn't enough for him to make the roster. Look for Cager to try to sneak onto a roster or practice squad somewhere else.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Finds end zone in preseason finale

    Cager (leg) caught three of five targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason finale against Philadelphia.

    Cager battled a leg injury earlier in camp but has since recovered. He used his 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame to create space and come down with a two-yard fade pass from Josh Johnson in the end zone to cap New York's opening drive. Cager's an intriguing red-zone target, but the second-year wideout out of Georgia hasn't made much of an impact thus far. He's likely headed for a practice squad spot at best once the Jets cut down their roster.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Leaves OTA with apparent leg injury

    Cager went down in pain during Thursday's OTA with an apparent injury to his left leg, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record, the injury looked like a left hamstring issue. Cager ultimately made his way to the locker room on his own alongside a trainer, so it appears he may have avoided the worst-case scenarios. Even so, he's likely set to miss some offseason work as a result, which doesn't bode well for a receiver on the roster bubble. He should still have plenty of time to get back in action if the issue isn't deemed serious.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Inks deal with Jets

    Cager signed with the Jets on Saturday.

    Cager played two games for the Jets earlier this season, catching two passes for 35 yards. With Denzel Mims (personal) ruled out this week and Jamison Crowder (calf) questionable, Cager will add necessary depth for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks.

  • Lawrence Cager: Clean bill of health

    Cager (undisclosed) was restored from the practice squad injured list Wednesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    Cager spent three weeks on the injured list but will return to team activities. The undrafted rookie out of Georgia has already been elevated to the active roster twice, so the Jets would need to sign him to the 53-man roster in order to promote him again.

  • Lawrence Cager: Managing injury

    The Jets placed Cager (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Wednesday.

    Cager's placement on the injured list allows the Jets to restore fellow wideout Donte Moncrief (undisclosed) to the practice squad. Coach Adam Gase said he expects Cager to miss multiple weeks.

  • Lawrence Cager: Back to practice roster

    Cager (hamstring) reverted to the Jets' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Cager suffered a serious hamstring injury during Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and coach Adam Gase expects him to miss a "couple weeks." The 23-year-old wide receiver will officially be on the practice squad during his recovery.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Expected to miss a couple weeks

    Cager (hamstring) is expected to miss a "couple weeks," per coach Adam Gase, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports. "The MRI wasn't as bad as what it looked on the field. Obviously it's going to be probably a couple weeks, but we got a little lucky there," Gase said.

    Cager sustained the injury in Thursday's game against the Broncos, crumpling to the turf while clutching his hamstring on a non-contact injury. While it's a relief that the undrafted rookie didn't suffer an even more serious injury, Cager looks unlikely to suit up against the Cardinals in Week 5 and could miss time beyond that game as well.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Back on the active roster

    Cager has been added to the Jets' active roster for Thursday night's game against the Broncos.

    Cager was elevated from the Jets' practice squad to the team's active roster ahead of Week 3 action and then proceeded to haul in two of his four targets for 35 yards in a 36-7 loss to the Colts. After that contest, he reverted back to the practice squad, but he's been summoned once again. It remains to be seen how busy he'll be Thursday night, however, with Jamison Crowder (hamstring) trending toward a return to action and Jeff Smith (shoulder) now off IR.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Unlikely to return Thursday

    Cager (hamstring) is doubtful to return to Thursday's game against the Broncos, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    The 23-year-old was injured while going up for a Sam Darnold pass attempt in the second quarter, and he returned to action momentarily before being once again pulled from the game. Cager had no receptions on two targets upon his exit, as the Jets remain with Jamison Crowder, Chris Hogan, Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith as the team's top wide receiver targets.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Downgraded to out

    Cager (hamstring) will not return to Thursday's game against the Broncos, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Cager was initially labeled as 'doubtful' to retake the field, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see him be officially ruled out to begin the third quarter. He was targeted twice in the first half but did not record a catch.

  • Lawrence Cager: Sent back down to practice squad

    Cager reverted back to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

    Cager made his NFL debut and had two catches in Sunday's loss to the Colts, but he also failed to get his head around on a timing route that led to a pick-six. If New York's injury-riddled receiving corps doesn't heal up on a short week, Cager could be called right back up for Thursday's game against the Broncos.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Two catches in NFL debut

    Cager made his NFL debut in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts, catching two balls for 35 yards on four targets.

    Cager pulled in receptions of 16 and 19 yards, and that production was good enough for him to finish third on the team in receiving yards behind slot receiver Braxton Berrios (64) and running back Kalen Ballage (44). The undrafted rookie's role should shrink if New York's beat up wide receiver corps ever heals, and there's little fantasy appeal to a depth piece on a team that has been outscored 94-37 through three games.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Promoted to roster as No. 4 WR

    Cager was elevated from the practice squad to the Jets' active roster ahead of their Week 3 trip to Indianapolis, Andy Vasquez of USA Today Sports reports.

    Cager should see some game action against the Colts as one of four active wide receivers, along with Chris Hogan, Josh Malone and Braxton Berrios (hamstring), who is listed as questionable. If Berrios can't go, the undrafted free agent out of Georgia would see the field in three-wide sets.

  • Lawrence Cager: Waived by Jets

    The Jets waived Cager (knee) on Saturday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    It's likely Cager is still carrying an injury tag since he had an MRI last week, so if he clears waivers he could land on the Jets' injured reserve. Regardless, the Jets' willingness to let Cager go signals that their receiver corps may not be as injured as it appears.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Not practicing Saturday

    Cager (knee) did not practice Saturday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    It's unclear what the result of Cager's recent MRI yielded, but we at least know for certain the undrafted free-agent rookie is not practicing Saturday. It's a critical distinction given a number of other Jets wideouts are also missing time due to various injuries.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Dealing with knee issue

    Cager is set for an MRI on his swollen knee Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    This is tough news for the Georgia product, considering he is in the mix for a roster spot heading into the 2020 season. It's unclear how Cager picked up the injury, however, he won't return to the field until he gets the full go-ahead from the training staff after his MRI.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Competing for roster spot

    Cager (ankle) will compete for a spot on the Jets' 53-man roster in training camp, Steve Lichtenstein of WFAN Radio reports.

    Cager and former first-round pick Josh Doctson could be competing for the same roster spot, so if the undrafted rookie is able to showcase utility on special teams, he could see his chances of sticking with Gang Green increase. The Georgia product missed the final four games of his last season of college due to an ankle injury, from which he's now fully recovered.
