  • Jets' Nathan Shepherd: Re-signs with Jets

    Shepherd agreed Tuesday to re-sign with the Jets, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Shepherd appeared in all 17 games for New York in 2021 and registered 28 tackles (17 solo).

    Shepherd (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

  • Jets' Nathan Shepherd: Questionable for Week 5

    Shepherd (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Shepherd was forced to miss practice Wednesday and was a limited participant in practice Thursday with a knee injury. There's optimism the defensive lineman will be able to play Sunday as he was upgraded to a full participant in Friday's practice. Expect Folorunso Fatukasi to serve as the Jets' main defensive lineman off the bench if Shepherd is ruled out.

    Shepherd (back) is active for Monday night's matchup against the Patriots.

    Shepherd was completely held out of practice Thursday while dealing with a back issue, though in retrospect, that may have been a precautionary measure given that the 27-year-old is ready for action on Monday night. With Quinnen Williams (hamstring) ruled out ahead of the Week 9 AFC East clash, Shepherd may register his first start at defensive end since 2018.
