  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Catches 16 passes in 2021

    Kroft caught 16 of 25 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown over nine appearances in 2021.

    Kroft missed time due to a back injury and lung laceration, but he split top tight end duties with Ryan Griffin when healthy and actually ended up finishing with the second-highest receiving yardage total of his seven-year NFL career. Tight end is one of many positions the Jets will likely look to upgrade in the offseason, but it's unclear if bringing back Kroft -- who's an unrestricted free agent -- is part of the team's plan at the position.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Activated from COVID list

    The Jets activated Kroft (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Kroft is in line to suit up Sunday against the Bills and should reclaim his role as the Jets' top tight end after Kenny Yeboah and Daniel Brown (hip) filled in for him in the Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers. Through his eight appearances on the season, Kroft has compiled a 15-168-1 receiving line on 22 targets.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Remains on COVID list

    Kroft remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Until Kroft is able clear the NFL's COVID protocols, Kenny Yeboah and Daniel Brown are the Jets' available tight end options, with neither profiling as a high-percentage fantasy option.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Lands on COVID list

    The Jets placed Kroft on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus.

    The Jets tight-ends corps currently is taxed due to injuries and COVID-19 list additions, so look for the team to makes some moves in advance of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. For now, Kroft will remain in quarantine until he clears the NFL's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Second-leading receiver in win

    Kroft caught three of five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Jaguars.

    With fellow tight end Ryan Griffin (knee) among the multitude of inured Jets pass-catchers, Kroft finished second behind Braxton Berrios in targets, catches and receiving yards. Kroft's among the top targets left for quarterback Zach Wilson by default heading into the team's Week 17 game against the Buccaneers, but the veteran tight end hasn't caught more than three passes in a game this season.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Stepping into No. 1 role at TE

    Kroft will serve as the Jets' starting tight end Sunday against the Jaguars after Ryan Griffin (knee) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    Griffin moved to the reserve/COVID-19 list three days later, but regardless, he won't play again this season, paving the way for Kroft to operate as the Jets' clear top option at the position. Kroft returned from a five-game absence due to a lacerated lung and played 61 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps in the Week 15 loss to the Dolphins, finishing with two receptions for 35 yards on two targets. He could see his snap share and target count climb slightly with Griffin out of the mix, but likely not enough to make Kroft an appealing option in season-long leagues or DFS.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Two catches in return

    Kroft (lung) caught both of his targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins.

    Kroft returned to the field for the first time since suffering a lacerated lung in Week 9 against the Colts. His stat line was almost identical to that of fellow tight end Ryan Griffin, who caught both of his targets for 39 yards. Unfortunately for the Jets, the tight ends finished second and third on the team in receiving yards behind Jamison Crowder's 40. Kroft and Griffin should both see the field frequently in Week 16 against the Jaguars.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Returns off IR

    Kroft (lung) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

    The veteran tight end missed the last five weeks after suffering a lacerated lung in the Week 9 loss to the Colts. Kroft had essentially been operating as the team's No. 2 tight end prior to the injury and he's expected to resume that role alongside nominal starter Ryan Griffin.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Cleared for practice

    The Jets designated Kroft (lung) for return from injured reserve Wednesday.

    The tight end sustained a lung laceration in a Week 9 loss to the Colts, but he looks as though he may be ready to put an end to a five-game absence Sunday against the Dolphins. Prior to suffering his injury, Kroft had logged 10 catches (on 15 targets) for 104 yards and a touchdown in six games.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Expected back Week 15

    Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he expects Kroft (lung) to return from injured reserve in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

    New York has yet to designate Kroft for return from IR since he was deactivated Nov. 9, so getting back on the practice field at some point Wednesday through Friday will be the first order of business for the 29-year-old if he hopes to suit up this weekend. If Kroft proves to New York's coaching and training staff that he's made a full recovery from his lung laceration, he'll likely be on the short end of a timeshare at tight end with Ryan Griffin.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Goes on IR

    Kroft (chest) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    As a result, Kroft will be sidelined for at least the next three games, making a Week 13 matchup with the Eagles on Dec. 5 his earliest possible return date. Before sustaining a lung laceration in last week's loss to the Colts, Kroft had appeared in six games and tallied 10 receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets. While Kroft is sidelined, Ryan Griffin is set to serve as the Jets' clear No. 1 tight end.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Expected to go on IR

    Kroft sustained a lung laceration in Thursday's loss to the Colts and is expected to miss multiple weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    New York expects Kroft to return this season, but he'll presumably be moved to injured reserve next week, meaning that he'll be forced to sit out at least three games. With Kroft out of the mix, Ryan Griffin -- who logged a 4-28-1 stat line on seven targets Thursday -- and Trevon Wesco (two catches for 16 yards) will serve as the Jets' top two options at tight end.

  • Jets' Tyler Kroft: Out with chest injury

    Kroft has been ruled out of the remainder of Thursday's game against the Colts due to a chest injury.

    Kroft made a leaping catch late in the first half but left the game immediately after. There's no indication of what the exact injury is, but he will be sidelined after logging two receptions for 38 yards. Ryan Griffin and Trevon Wesco will serve as the team's primary tight ends in Kroft's absence.
