Martin (concussion) is not participating in Thursday's practice.
Martin sustained a concussion in the team's preseason finale against the Giants, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports. While Martin was able to participate in non-contact practices earlier in the week, the outside linebacker will need to clear the concussion protocol in order to suit up for Sunday's season opener against the Lions.
It was likely an easy decision for the Jets to bring back Martin after he finished the past season in a starting role at outside linebacker and acquitted himself well in that capacity. The 26-year-old achieved career highs across the board in 2017, finishing with 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pass breakup. Look for him to fill at least a rotational role at linebacker to go along with his duties on special teams during the upcoming season.
Martin (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is in line to play Sunday against the Patriots.
Martin has missed the past two weeks but will be ready for the divisional matchup. When he did start at linebacker prior to his injury, though, Martin didn't play a full workload. The 25-year-old linebacker doesn't have proven NFL experience and fantasy owners should wait before summoning him for their lineups.
Martin (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Martin will miss his second consecutive game and will have to focus on recovering before a divisional matchup with the Patriots in Week 6. The fifth-year linebacker has yet to make a serious fantasy contribution in his career, but 2017 will mark the first season he's listed as a starter, so things could change when he's healthy.
