Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Makes first two catches of 2023
Yeboah caught two of three targets for 28 yards in Thursday's 37-20 loss to the Browns.
Yeboah recorded his first two catches of the season while working as the No. 2 tight end behind Tyler Conklin with Jeremy Ruckert (concussion) unavailable. If neither Ruckert nor C.J. Uzomah (knee) suit up in Week 18 against the Patriots, Yeboah would likely continue to see regular playing time in the season finale.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Climbs depth chart
Yeboah didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 30-28 win over the Commanders.
Yeboah took on a larger role after Jeremy Ruckert exited due to a concussion. Coach Robert Saleh has already ruled Ruckert out for Thursday's game in Cleveland, so Yeboah should continue to function as the team's No. 2 tight end behind Tyler Conklin.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Activated from IR
The Jets activated Yeboah (hamstring) from injured reserve Wednesday.
Yeboah takes the roster spot of fellow tight end C.J. Uzomah (knee), who was himself placed on injured reserve Wednesday. While Yeboah has yet to make his 2023 debut, he could get the chance to do so as early as Sunday versus the Texans. Across 19 appearances with New York over the past two seasons, Yeboah has mostly contributed on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Won't play at Buffalo
Yeboah (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game at the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Yeboah was a full participant at practice all week, but the Jets are deciding to err on the side of caution by holding him out in Week 11. He'll have to wait at least one more week to make his 2023 debut.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Designated to return from IR
The Jets designated Yeboah (hamstring) to return from injured reserve Wednesday.
After playing in 19 games for the Jets over the previous two seasons, Yeboah is still looking to make his 2023 debut. This move opens Yeboah's 21-day practice window, and he can be activated anytime within the next three weeks. Yeboah will look to earn a role behind Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah and Jeremy Ruckert....

Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Headed to IR
The Jets placed Yeboah (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.
Yeboah totalled two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' preseason game against the Buccaneers on Aug. 19 before sustaining a hamstring injury. He's set to miss at least four games as he recovers from his injury.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Finds end zone in preseason win
Yeboah caught both of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-0 preseason win over Carolina.
Yeboah was one of three tight ends to find the end zone for the Jets in this game, but his touchdown was the only one scored in the first half. It came from two yards out on a throw from Zach Wilson in the final seconds before halftime. Yeboah split time between the practice squad and active roster for the Jets in 2022, and he could be in for a similar role in 2023 with Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah and Jeremy Ruckert (shoulder) ahead of Yeboah on the depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Practices in full Thursday
Yeboah (calf) was a full participant in the Jets' practice Thursday, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.
Yeboah has been sidelined for the past two games with a calf injury, and he returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. The 24-year-old now appears set to play again after logging a full session Thursday. Yeboah was elevated from the practice squad for three games before signing with the Jets' active roster in early November, though he's primarily played on special teams over four contests this season. Expect Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah to continue seeing the majority of the team's snaps at tight end versus Minnesota on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: In line to practice Wednesday
Yeboah (calf) is slated to practice in limited fashion Wednesday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.
Yeboah enters Week 13 prep with a two-game absence streak due to a calf issue, but if he's indeed able to participate in a limited capacity Wednesday, he'll have a decent shot at returning this weekend in Minnesota. The 24-year-old has mainly served as a special-teams contributor across the 2022 campaign, so if he's eventually unable to gain medical clearance by Sunday, then Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah and Jeremy Ruckert would be in line to serve as New York's top tight end options once again.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Won't play against Bears
Yeboah (calf) is inactive Week 12 against the Bears.
Yeboah hadn't practiced all week due to a calf injury, so it's not too surprising to see him miss his second consecutive week. Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah and Jeremy Ruckert will serve as the three active tight ends for New York on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Unlikely to play Week 12
Yeboah (calf) has been deemed doubtful to play Sunday against the Bears, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Yeboah popped up with a calf issue on the Jets' injury report last Friday, leaving him sidelined for the first time this season against the Patriots in Week 7. The tight end then failed to practice at all Week 12, and he appears set to remain out Sunday versus Chicago. As a result, expect Jeremy Ruckert to step up as the Jets' third-string tight end behind Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Won't play Sunday
Yeboah (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Yeboah is now slated to miss a second consecutive contest as a result of a calf issue. The 24-year-old has logged just 11 offensive snaps across four games played to this point in the season, so his absence likely won't alter New York's game plan to a large extent. Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah are in line to handle most of the team's tight end reps in this weekend's matchup against Chicago, while Jeremy Ruckert could potentially be in the mix for some rotational snaps....

Jets' Kenny Yeboah: Inactive, as expected
Yeboah (calf) is inactive Sunday against the Patriots.
Yeboah has largely been a practice squad player for the Jets this season, and when active, has seen most of his work on special teams. That won't be the case this Sunday following a late addition to the injury report, which leaves Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah as the primary tight ends for New York. Jeremy Ruckert is also on hand, and rookie is a prime candidate to see some of Yeboah's special teams snaps.... See More ... See Less
