  • Kenny Yeboah: Heads back to practice squad

    Yeboah reverted back to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Yeboah got the call up to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Bills with Tyler Kroft (chest) on IR. Despite the promotion, Yeboah only saw the field on 11 special-teams snaps. He'll try to earn another chance on the active roster in a Week 11 matchup against Miami.

  • Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Signed to active roster

    Yeboah was signed to the Jets' active roster Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    Yeboah was elevated from the Jets' practice squad for Sunday's matchup against the Bills. He played exclusively on special teams but could fill a depth role at tight end with Tyler Kroft (chest) on injured reserve.

  • Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Elevated by Jets

    Yeboah was elevated from the Jets' practice squad Saturday.

  • Kenny Yeboah: Heads back to practice squad

    Yeboah reverted back to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

  • Jets' Kenny Yeboah: No offensive snaps in debut

    Yeboah didn't see the field on offense in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Falcons.

    Yeboah's action in his NFL debut consisted of just five special teams snaps. The rookie tight end doesn't seem ready to meaningfully contribute, even if Tyler Kroft (back) ends up missing more time.

  • Kenny Yeboah: Will be gameday elevation

    Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that Yeboah will be elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    Yeboah will get a chance to make his NFL debut after Tyler Kroft (back) was ruled out for Week 5. The Ole Miss product had a strong finish to the preseason, catching four passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns -- including a 49-yard Hail Mary score -- during the Jets' final exhibition contest. Despite the preseason heroics, the 22-year-old will likely have a very limited role against Atlanta on Sunday.

  • Kenny Yeboah: Cut by Jets

    Yeboah was waived by the Jets on Tuesday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Yeboah had a strong finish to the preseason with four catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns -- including a 49-yard Hail May score -- Friday against the Eagles, but he didn't make the Jets' initial 53-man roster. New York hopes to bring back the rookie UDFA out of Ole Miss on the practice squad, but he'll need to pass through waivers unclaimed.

  • Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Ties game with Hail Mary

    Yeboah caught four of five targets for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's game against the Eagles.

    The undrafted rookie out of Ole Miss caught a 21-yard TD pass midway through the fourth quarter before tying the game at the end of regulation with a 49-yard score on a Hail Mary (followed by a Josh Adams two-point conversion). It may not have been enough for Yeboah to earn a spot on the Week 1 roster, but he'll at least be in the conversation for the practice squad. He did find a good landing spot after the draft, as the Jets' tight ends are among the worst in the league, with Tyler Kroft, Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin competing for snaps at the moment. A spot on the practice squad could lead to playing time in the not-too-distant future.
