Anderson pleaded not guilty Monday in Broward County (Fla.) Circuit Court to the nine charges he faces stemming from his Jan. 19 arrest, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports. The 24-year-old Anderson faces three felony charges, a misdemeanor and five traffic violations, according to the arrest report. It's the second straight offseason for Anderson that has been clouded by legal issues, as he was previously arrested last May for pushing a police officer during a dispute at a Miami music festival. Anderson will report to court March 26 to address that incident, though it remains unclear when his trial for the Jan. 19 arrest will commence.
Anderson reportedly faces nine charges, including two felonies, stemming from an incident in South Florida early Friday morning, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Per the report, this marks Anderson's second arrest in the last eight months. With the NFL slated to review the matter, the wideout is potentially subject to discipline under the league's personal-conduct policy. Meanwhile, the Jets released a statement, noting that the team is "aware of the situation. This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment."
Anderson was evaluated for a head injury during Sunday's game against the Patriots. Prior to that, Anderson was having a quiet game, logging just one catch on three targets for two yards. With the Jets down in the contest, the wideout could end up staying out for precautionary reasons.
Anderson (illness) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots. While the wideout's yardage output has been modest of late with Bryce Petty at QB for the Jets, Anderson is still seeing his share of volume. He's logged 19 targets over his last two games, which has resulted in back-to-back five-catch performances.
Anderson (illness) returned to a limited practice Thursday. Anderson's return to practice puts him on track to play Sunday against the Patriots, an outcome that will be solidified if the wideout is removed from the Jets' Week 17 injury report come Friday. Anderson's receiving yardage has been modest of late, with Bryce Petty at quarterback, but the wideout is still seeing volume, parlaying 19 targets over his last two games into back-to-back five-catch efforts.
