Middleton suffered a pectoral injury during Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Vikings, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports. Middleton's injury is reportedly on the opposite side of the pectoral muscle tear that kept him sidelined throughout the entire 2017 season. Expect an update on the safety's health following Monday's evaluation of his injury.
Middleton has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Minnesota with a shoulder injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Middleton earned the start in Week 7 with Marcus Maye (thumb) out. With the veteran nursing a shoulder issue, the Jets will turn to their last remaining safety option in Terrence Brooks. More word on Middleton should surface following Sunday's game.
Middleton (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Colts. Middleton could see an increased snap count if starting free safety Marcus Maye suffers any sort of setback to his ankle injury.
Middleton (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Middleton logged an impressive performance in the Jets' Week 3 loss to Cleveland, but has been nursing knee and finger injuries since then. The third-year safety could be a game-time decision, but his presence would be a huge boost for Gang Green's secondary with Marcus Maye (foot) also considered questionable.
Middleton (finger) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Middleton played all 70 defensive snaps in Week 1 against the Lions while Marcus Maye (foot) sat out. Maye is listed as doubtful for Week 2, which makes Middleton's availability even more important. Despite the designation, the 24-year-old was a full participant in Friday's practice. If he can't go, however, expect the Jets to move Terrence Brooks to starting free safety opposite Jamal Adams.
