Peake caught both of his targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.
Peake scored the only touchdown for either team with a 16-yard catch on a Teddy Bridgewater pass. The third-year wideout climbed the ladder in the front corner of the end zone and managed to land in bounds for the score. He'll need more impressive plays like that to crack a Jets roster with no shortage of competition at the wide receiver position.
Peake (ankle) joined Terrelle Pryor (ankle) on the sidelines working with trainers on Friday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Peake hit injured reserve in late September last season and never made his way back before the conclusion. Despite an additional offseason to recover, Peake remains on the sidelines as training camp fires up. The third-year wideout was targeted 35 times as a rookie and caught 19 passes, but he will likely have to prove himself worthy of a 53-man roster spot again during camp and the preseason after a lost 2017 campaign.
Peake (ankle) finished 2017 with one catch for three yards in three games.
Peake initially was considered a candidate to return from injured reserve after he hurt his ankle in September, but he never made it back and probably wouldn't have gotten much playing time even if he had. The 2016 seventh-round pick likely will need to battle for a roster spot in training camp, assuming he recovers from last year's ankle injury.
With just one target and one catch through three weeks, Peake had been unable to make the most of his opportunity in a less-than-stellar Jets receiving corps. He'll need to spend at least eight weeks on injured reserve while recovering from his ankle injury, but the team might consider bringing him back late in the season. The 2016 seventh-round pick likely would still have a limited role.
Though initial X-rays didn't reveal any fractures, Peake is officially ruled out for at least the next eight weeks. The 2016 seventh-round pick was unable to earn a key role in the Jets' unproven receiving corps, drawing just a single target in three games.
