Anderson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills. After opening the week as a full practice participant, Anderson only managed limited showings Thursday and Friday while he was nagged by the ankle issue that has bothered him since late October. Though Anderson could probably benefit from some extra rest, it's not expected that he'll face any noteworthy restrictions with his snap count Sunday. Over the past two games, Anderson managed six receptions for 70 yards on 12 targets while playing with Josh McCown, but the wideout will have rookie signal-caller Sam Darnold throwing to him this week. Over the previous eight games he and Darnold played, Anderson scored only three touchdowns and exceeded 45 receiving yards on one occasion.
Anderson (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Anderson still hasn't made a full recovery from the ankle sprain he suffered in late October, but he seems to be on track to play for a third straight week, likely catching passes from rookie signal-caller Sam Darnold. Between the matchup, the injury and his recent lack of production, Anderson doesn't offer much fantasy appeal for Week 14. The Bills allow just 6.4 yards per pass attempt, and Anderson hasn't reached 50 yards in a game since Oct. 7.
Anderson (ankle) took part in Friday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Anderson was limited at Thursday's practice after getting in a full session Wednesday, and it's still not clear why he did less than the day before. Regardless, he has still taken part in practice all three days this week, which bodes well in regards to his availability for Sunday's game in Buffalo.
After practicing fully Wednesday, Anderson (ankle) was limited at practice Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports. We'll have to see if the downgrade in participation is maintenance-related or indicative of a setback with the ankle issue Anderson has been dealing with of late, but Friday's practice and subsequent official injury report figure to lend clarity on that front. While Anderson's practice level dipped Thursday, fellow wideout Quincy Enunwa (ankle) practiced fully after being limited Wednesday.
Anderson caught four of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 26-22 loss to Tennessee. Although his final line looked like nothing special, Anderson tied his season high in catches and saw his second-best receiving output on the year. The 25-year-old has been limited by injuries and an ineffective offense this season after coming just 59 yards shy of the 1,000-yard mark in 2017. Things don't get any easier with Buffalo's top-rated defense against receivers on tap in Week 14.
