Griffin wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the 49ers. Griffin hasn't had a ball thrown his way through two games. New York could go to more formations with multiple tight ends against the Colts in Week 3 given all of the team's injuries at wide receiver, but Griffin hasn't shown the ability to convert playing time into production.
Griffin was not targeted in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills. With Chris Herndon healthy, Griffin has been relegated to backup tight end duties. Herndon had six catches in Buffalo and will be the only tight end seeing significant attention from quarterback Sam Darnold as long as he's on the field.
The Jets (ankle) activated Griffin from the active/PUP list Saturday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Griffin took the practice field for the first time in training camp, as he was recovering from a December ankle injury. It looks like Chris Herndon will secure the No. 1 tight-end job, but Griffin is a steady backup and produced a 34-320-5 line with Herndon out of the picture last year.
Griffin (ankle) has been placed on the active/Physically Unable to Perform list, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports. Griffin continues to recover from an ankle procedure, but once he's healthy, the 30-year-old will look to secure his role in the Jets' passing game. The looming return of Chris Herndon limits Griffin's fantasy upside heading into the 2020 season, but when pressed into expanded duty last year, Griffin put up a 34-320-5 stat line in 13 games.
Griffin (ankle) had his option for 2021 picked up by the Jets on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The 30-year-old had 34 receptions for 320 yards and five touchdowns through 13 starts before going down with the ankle injury in early December, and it appears the Jets are happy to keep him around for the next couple years. Griffin subsequently underwent surgery and is in the midst of an expected six-month recovery, so he should be healthy for the beginning of training camp.
