Herndon is listed as the Jets' fourth tight end on the team's initial depth chart of the regular season.

This is somewhat surprising given there were murmurs earlier in training camp that the rookie had a legitimate chance to start right away, or at worst, see regular action in two-tight-end sets. While it's probably best to look elsewhere for help at tight end in Week 1, how the coaching staff truly views Herndon will be reflected in his snap count during Monday's game against the Lions.
