  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Best game of season Thursday

    Smith caught three of four targets for 40 yards in Thursday's 45-30 loss to the Colts.

    Smith caught multiple passes in a game for the first time since Week 8 of last season. His uptick in production can likely be attributed to third-string quarterback Josh Johnson being pressed into duty after Mike White injured his forearm in the first quarter. Johnson's reps in practice have come predominantly with receivers buried deep down the depth chart, so he and Smith have been able to build a rapport.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: One catch in Week 8

    Smith caught his lone target for 10 yards and rushed once for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Bengals.

    Smith was a healthy scratch in Week 7 but returned to the game-day roster with Corey Davis (hip) unavailable. When he plays, Smith's role is limited primarily to special teams.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Inactive Sunday

    Smith will be a healthy scratch for the Jets on Sunday against the Patriots.

    Smith missed Weeks 4 and 5 with a concussion, then returned to practice Oct. 20 after the Jets' bye week. Despite being cleared to play, the Jets will look elsewhere for offense against New England. Although active Weeks 1 through 3, Smith logged limited snaps to the tune of four targets, two receptions and 48 yards. Smith will hope to crack the game-day roster Week 8 against the Bengals.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Back from concussion

    Smith (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Smith has been in concussion protocol since Week 4, missing two games a result. However, he apparently made enough progress in his recovery during the team's bye week to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. In three appearances on the season, Smith has recorded two receptions for 48 yards.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Ruled out against Falcons

    Smith (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Smith will miss his second consecutive game due to a concussion, which he originally suffered in a car accident on the way to the Jets' practice facility. Prior to the injury, Smith had recorded two receptions on four targets for 48 yards across three contests.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Remains in concussion protocol

    Coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Smith remains in the concussion protocol, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Smith was held out of the Jets' Week 4 win over the Titans due to a concussion, and his status is still in question ahead of Sunday's matchup against Atlanta. Even if the 24-year-old is cleared to return in Week 5, he's unlikely to play a significant role.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Won't play Week 4

    Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that Smith (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Titans, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Smith suffered the concussion after being involved in a car accident on the way to the Jets' practice facility Wednesday. The 24-year-old has played mostly a reserve role for New York this year, catching two of his four targets for 48 yards. Fellow wideout Elijah Moore (concussion) has also been ruled out, so Denzel Mims is expected to be active Sunday after being a healthy scratch the past two games.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Likely out Week 4 with concussion

    Smith missed practice Wednesday after suffering a concussion in a car accident earlier in the day, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. The receiver isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

    The accident occurred as Smith was driving to the Jets' practice facility. While playing in each of the team's first three games, Smith has typically served as the team's No. 4 or 5 receiver, recording only two receptions for 48 yards on four targets. With the statuses of Elijah Moore (concussion) and Jamison Crowder (groin) also murky for Week 4, Denzel Mims seems likely to return from the inactive list to dress for Sunday's game.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Another one-catch game

    Smith caught his only target for 13 yards in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Broncos.

    Smith has just two receptions through three games, with most of his playing time coming on special teams; he played only six offensive snaps in this one. Fellow wide receiver Elijah Moore (concussion) left this game early, but Denzel Mims (coach's decision) is more likely than Smith to play a prominent role against the Titans in Week 4 should Moore have to sit that one out.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Two targets in Week 2

    Smith caught one of two targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 25-6 loss to the Patriots.

    Smith delivered a big gain on his lone catch but remains an afterthought in the Jets' offense, though he seems to have leapfrogged Denzel Mims (coach's decision) for the sixth spot on the Jets' wide receiver depth chart. Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson was picked off four times without a touchdown in this one, so the Jets' top pass-catchers are hard to trust right now, let alone depth guys like Smith.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Minimal role in Week 1

    Smith failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Panthers.

    Smith barely saw any involvement, even with Jamison Crowder (illness) and Keelan Cole (knee) both sitting out. He's unlikely to take on a larger role in Week 2 against the Patriots or beyond, barring even more injuries to New York's receiving corps.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Shows versatility against Eagles

    Smith caught two of five targets for 16 yards and added 44 yards on three rushing attempts in Friday's preseason finale against Philadelphia.

    Smith excelled on the ground in this one, but he hasn't previously shown outstanding aptitude as a gadget guy, and his receiving output here was nothing to write home about. He'll likely find himself on the outside looking in when the Jets cut their roster down to 53 players.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Inks tender with Jets

    Smith (shoulder) signed his ERFA tender with the Jets on Monday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Smith played a fairly consistent role in New York's offense early last season, but it completely dwindled down the stretch as the rest of the team's receiving corps got healthier. A shoulder injury also knocked him out early Week 17. He'll spend the offseason competing for a depth spot on the final roster.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Done for the day

    Smith (shoulder) will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Smith wasn't targeted before leaving Sunday's regular-season finale with a shoulder injury. Through 11 appearances in 2020, Smith secured 17 of 37 targets for 167 yards. He also played 30 snaps on special teams.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Active for Week 17

    Smith (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.

    Smith enjoyed a consistent role earlier in the season, but he didn't play an offensive snap over the last two weeks. A similar role can be expected in Week 17, as Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims and Braxton Berrios are all healthy.

  • Jets' Jeff Smith: Listed as questionable

    Smith (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Smith played through this injury last week. He was a limited participant in practice this week, so he's trending in the right direction for the season finale. His status shouldn't concern fantasy managers, as Smith didn't play a snap on offense over the last two weeks.
