Dixon was waived by the Jets on Wednesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. The 26-year-old running back was a fourth-round pick for the Ravens back in 2016, and while he's been the subject of fantasy-football hype on a few different occasions, injuries have been the major theme of Dixon's pro career. He's unlikely to make an NFL roster for Week 1, though he appears to be healthy at the moment.
Dixon (illness) has a clean bill of health entering the 2020 season, News4Jax.com reports. Dixon missed all of 2019 with a knee injury and then an illness, but he has completely recovered ahead of the 2020 campaign. The 26-year-old last saw game action for the Ravens in 2018, but he's expected to compete for a reserve role with the Jets in camp.
Dixon (illness) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional contest against the Bills, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Dixon will miss Sunday's regular-season finale due to an illness. In his stead, Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery will operate as the sole backups to top running back Le'Veon Bell.
Dixon (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Dixon popped up on the injury report Thursday with the ailment and logged limited practice time in Friday's session. The veteran was signed by the team Dec. 18, so even if he's healthy enough to play, he'll likely provide depth for a fairly healthy running back corps in Week 17.
Dixon (knee) signed a contract with the Jets on Wednesday. The 25-year-old spent the preseason with the Ravens but fractured his kneecap and was let go with an injury settlement at roster cutdowns. Dixon had 60 carries for 333 yards and two touchdowns in six games with Baltimore last season, but he's unlikely to play a significant role in the backfield down the stretch in New York.
