Jets' Steve McLendon: Picks up 2.5 sacks in 10th season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon finished with 36 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 2019.

McLendon's more impactful as a leader in the locker room than on the field, but the nose tackle was still able to contribute meaningful statistics in his 10th NFL season. Assuming the 34-year-old McLendon doesn't decide to hang up his cleats, he has one more year remaining on his contract with the Jets.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Active for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (knee/hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

McLendon has been dealing with multiple injuries over the course of the past few weeks and has often been limited in practice, but the veteran has yet to miss a game this season. He should slot in as the Jets' starting nose tackle.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Will suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (knee/hip) is active for Thursday's contest against the Ravens.

McLendon has been dealing with multiple injuries, with head coach Adam Gase noting the nose tackle is "banged up all over the place" prior to Week 14. However, the veteran will tough it out Thursday and should start at nose tackle. Folorunso Fatukasi is primed to fill in for McLendon if he suffers any setbacks.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Regains questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (knee/hip) is listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Ravens, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

McLendon was able to play through these issues during Sunday's win over the Dolphins, and he's been a limited participant in practice all week. However, there's still cause for concern on a short week, so Folorunso Fatukasi is on standby to start at nose tackle if McLendon can't go.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Ready for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (knee/hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

McLendon was listed as questionable after working as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but he's good to go for Week 14. The 33-year-old should serve in his usual starting role versus Miami.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Limited Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (knee/hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Miami.

McLendon sat out Wednesday's practice before closing out the week with two limited sessions. The 33-year-old has yet to miss a game this season, but even if he goes, Folorunso Fatukasi could see increased snaps Sunday.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Nursing multiple injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Monday that McLendon (undisclosed) is "banged up all over the place," Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

McLendon battled through a neck issue in late November, and he now appear to be nursing numerous injuries. The veteran nose tackle has started all 12 games this season. Wednesday's first injury report of the week will shed some light on his chances of suiting up against the Dolphins on Monday.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (neck) is officially active for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Despite practicing on a limited basis all week, McLendon will be available for Sunday's game. The 34-year-old is expected to assume his normal starting role as the team's nose tackle against the Raiders.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Questionable against Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (neck) is questionable to play Sunday versus the Raiders, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Limited at practice all week, McLendon's status for Sunday remains up in the air. Even if he plays, the 33-year-old defensive tackle's impact is unlikely to have an effect on fantasy fortunes.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington.

McLendon played through the neck issue last Sunday against the Giants but was unable to shed the injury at practice this week. The 33-year-old has started all nine games this season and figures to start again Sunday if able to suit up.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Gearing up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

McLendon was a limited participant in practice all week, but he'll fire up for the New York rivalry. The 33-year-old hasn't fallen behind in snaps to rookie first-round pick Quinnen Williams over the last few weeks. His IDP value was already unreliable with just 16 tackles (nine solo) in eight games.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (neck) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Giants.

McLendon has been limited in practice all week, indicating that he may truly be questionable heading into Sunday's early slate of games. If the veteran cannot suit up, look for rookie Quinnen Williams to gain a greater share of snaps at nose tackle, with Folorunso Fatukasi also seeing an increased role along the interior defensive line.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Nursing neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon is being evaluated for a neck injury Monday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

McLendon suffered what was initially disclosed as a shoulder injury during Monday's loss to the Dolphins, but it's now been revealed that the starting defensive lineman is managing a neck issue. If McLendon were forced to miss any time, rookie first-round pick Quinnen Williams would stand to take over at nose tackle.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Gets hurt late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Miami.

McLendon came into the game nursing a hamstring injury but now seems to be dealing with a new issue. He left the game late in the fourth quarter, so it's likely McLendon won't return. As long as he's out, expect Quinnen Williams to take on the bulk of the nose tackle reps for the remainder of the game.

Jets' Steve McLendon: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's tilt against Miami.

McLendon faced similar circumstances last week dealing the hamstring injury, and won't miss time Sunday. The 33-year-old has been splitting snaps with rookie Quinnen Williams at nose tackle this season and is expected to do so again for Week 9.

Jets' Steve McLendon: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

McLendon appeared to shake off the hamstring injury heading into Week 8, but he returned to limited participation this week to earn the questionable tag. The 33-year-old has been splitting snaps with rookie Quinnen Williams at nose tackle this season.

October 25, 2019 05:24 PM
Jets' Steve McLendon: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

McLendon was limited for the first two practices of the week, but he'll be ready to go against the Jaguars. He and Quinnen Williams split snaps with exactly 41 each in Week 7's loss to the Patriots, so McLendon could be trending toward a reserve role by the end of the season.

October 21, 2019 07:16 PM
Jets' Steve McLendon: Active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon (hamstring) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Patriots, Randy Lange of the Jets' official website reports.

McLendon is nursing a hamstring injury and was considered questionable for the contest as a result. Barring any setbacks, he should be available to take on his usual workload at defensive tackle.

October 19, 2019 08:00 PM
Jets' Steve McLendon: Questionable with hamstring issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon has a hamstring injury and is questionable for Monday's game against New England.

McLendon was a limited practice participant this week and should have a decent chance of suiting up Monday. The veteran defensive tackle has started all five games this season and has 12 tackles (six solo) and one sack.

October 12, 2019 05:28 PM
Jets' Steve McLendon: Inks extension with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLendon signed a one-year extension with the Jets on Saturday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

McLendon is now signed through the 2020 season. The official terms of the deal weren't released. McLendon has made a solid contribution on the Jets' defense this year, although he was out-snapped 53-36 by rookie Quinnen Williams in Week 5's game against the Eagles. He'll likely move into a reserve role for as long as Williams is healthy.
