  • Jets' George Fant: Hits IR

    Fant (knee) has officially been placed on the Jets' injured reserve, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official website reports.

    Fant served as the protector of Zach Wilson's blindside for most of the season after Mekhi Becton (knee) suffered a season-ending injury in Week 1. He ends the year with 887 snaps on offense, which is fourth most on the team. The severity of his knee injury is unknown, but it was previously reported by Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record that the lineman did not injure his ACL.

  • Jets' George Fant: Seeking second opinion

    Fant (knee) did not injure his ACL after exiting Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, but he is looking for a second opinion on the feedback he received, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

    While the lack of an ACL injury is postive, it remains unclear how serious Fant's knee injury is. Thus, his status for the Jets' regular-season finale against the Bills is unknown but looking dim. Conor McDermott would presumably replace him at left tackle should he ultimately get ruled out.

  • Jets' George Fant: Dealing with knee issue

    Fant is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a knee injury.

    Fant suffered the apparent left knee injury in the first half of Sunday's game and was helped off the field before heading to the locker room. While it's not clear if it is related, Fant was also sidelined in Week 15 due to a knee issue. Conor McDermott is likely to take over at left tackle in his absence.

  • Jets' George Fant: Doubtful for Sunday

    Fant (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday against the Dolphins, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Fant has yet to log a practice all week, and it doesn't appear likely he will take the field Sunday. If he is unable to prove to be healthy enough to face the Dolphins, Conor McDermott would likely draw the start at right tackle.

  • Jets' George Fant: May play Thursday

    Fant (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Colts, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Fant was able to practice as a limited participant Wednesday, giving him a chance to suit up for Thursday Night Football. The 29-year-old suffered the ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Bengals. Chuma Edoga is likely to receive a start at left tackle should Fant be sidelined.

    Fant (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Colts.

  • Jets' George Fant: Downgraded to out

    Fant (ankle) won't return Sunday against Cincinnati, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

    Fant has been downgraded to out, and this inflicts another wound to a very depleted offensive line for the Jets. This also means they'll feature Chuma Edoga at left tackle, though he's the third-stringer at the position.
