Cole (knee) wasn't targeted in Sunday's 25-6 loss to New England. Cole suited up after missing the season opener, but his lack of involvement suggests he's still feeling the effects of his knee injury. If Cole's able to increase his practice participation in the upcoming week, he'll likely be more involved in the game plan against the Broncos in Week 3.
Cole (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. A limited participant in practice throughout the week while he continued to manage the knee injury that sidelined him for the season-opening loss to the Panthers, Cole ultimately received the green light to make his Jets debut after checking out fine following a pregame evaluation. The extent of Cole's role in the Week 2 game plan is difficult to forecast, however, even with Jamison Crowder (groin) sitting out a second straight contest. While Corey Davis is locked in as the Jets' No. 1 outside receiver, Cole may have to fend off Braxton Berrios for work out of the slot sans Crowder. Cole also has the ability to play outside, so he could challenge rookie Elijah Moore for reps if the Jets prefer to deploy Berrios as their top slot option.
Cole (knee) logged a third consecutive limited practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against New England, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Cole has been limited all week after missing the season opener due to this knee injury. He's expected to start on the outside if cleared to play against the Patriots after rookie second-round pick Elijah Moore flopped in his NFL debut while helping fill in for Cole and Jamison Crowder (groin) in Week 1 against the Panthers. Cimini relays that coach Robert Saleh sounded optimistic about the status of both Cole and Crowder, despite suggesting that the two profile as game-time decisions.
Cole (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Meanwhile, fellow WR Jamison Crowder came off the reserve/COVID-19 list but was limited Thursday due to a groin injury. Friday's practice therefore will determine if the duo, who missed Week 1 action, will approach Sunday's game against the Patriots with any sort of injury designation. If both players are available this weekend, Elijah Moore and Braxton Berrios likely would see reduced roles Week 2.
Cole (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. Cole was added to the injury report last Thursday and ended up being a game-time decision before being on the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Panthers. He now looks questionable for Week 2 against the Patriots, while slot man Jamison Crowder is expected to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list at some point this week. Cole likely will be the third or fourth option at wideout if and when everyone is healthy, depending on the progress of young receivers Elijah Moore and Denzel Mims.
