The Jets placed Ficken (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. After missing three straight games with a right groin injury, Ficken was cleared to return to action coming out of the Jets' Week 10 bye, but he didn't look quite right in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Chargers. Though he wasn't forced to exit early because of an injury, Ficken still misfired on two of his four extra-point attempts in the contest. The Jets will give Ficken at least the next three games off to heal up, clearing the way for Sergio Castillo to step back in as the team's kicker.
Ficken (groin) didn't attempt a field goal and made two of four PAT attempts in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Chargers. Perhaps Ficken returned a week too early, as the normally reliable kicker was uncharacteristically inaccurate on his limited opportunities. The Jets got back the two points Ficken left on the table when the Chargers took an intentional safety on the game's second-to-last play, but a winless New York team can ill afford to start missing makeable kicks on top of all the team's other issues.
Ficken (groin) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. Ficken was able to contribute a trio of practice sessions during the week, with one involving full participation. In what will be his first appearance since Week 6, Ficken gets the nod over Sergio Castillo for a matchup against the Chargers. Thus far on the season, Ficken has gone 9-for-10 on field-goal tries and 6-for-6 on extra points over six appearances.
Ficken (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Ficken sandwiched Thursday's full practice between a pair of limited sessions, so it sounds like he's more likely than not to be out there come Sunday. Ficken's return would bump Sergio Castillo off the game-day roster.
Ficken (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Ficken was limited in practice to begin the week, but he can now safely be considered on track for Sunday's game against the Chargers. The starting kicker's groin injury caused him to miss the Jets' last three games.
