Gragg (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday, The Associated Press reports.
Gragg broke his ankle in Thursday's preseason finale. He's likely to remain on IR for the duration of the season.
Gragg, who had exited Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles with what was labeled as a knee injury, is believed to have suffered a broken ankle, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
This is an unfortunate development for Gragg, who's likely looking at an extended absence. He looks to be a strong candidate to be cut over the weekend, though he could revert to the Jets' injured reserve list if he clears waivers.
Gragg left Thursday's matchup against the Eagles with knee and ankle injuries, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Gragg was a late addition in training camp to add competition for the spot that will be empty while Austin Seferian-Jenkins serves his two-game suspension. In 2015, the last season he played, Gragg hauled in 12 passes for 150 yards and zero touchdowns for the Bills. He suffered a season-ending ACL tear in 2016, so hopefully this injury isn't related.
The Jets released wide receiver KD Cannon and signed Gragg in a corresponding roster move. The 27-year old spent his first three seasons with the Bills. He tallied 150 yards on 12 receptions last season. He will compete for a role on the final roster as a depth tight end.
