George Atkinson: Cut by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets waived Atkinson on Friday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

This move comes as no surprise, as Atkinson was buried on the Jets' depth chart. The 25-year-old logged 16 games on the Browns' roster last season, but that was after two seasons of bouncing around on practice squads. He will presumably clear waivers and either look for a new destination or revert to the team's practice squad.

Jets' George Atkinson: Rushing and receiving leader Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atkinson led New York in both rushing and receiving yardage during Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins. He gained seven yards on 31 carries and caught his lone target for 30 yards.

Atkinson got extended run with New York battling a rash of backfield injuries, and the 25-year-old Notre Dame made the most of his opportunities. His night would have been even more impressive if Atkinson had been able to convert either of his two attempts from inside Washington's two-yard line on the Jets' final drive.

Jets' George Atkinson: Bottled up in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atkinson rushed nine times for 12 yards and added a one-yard reception on his lone target during a 17-0 win over the Falcons in Friday's preseason opener.

Atkinson gained 10 yards on one of his carries, but he was completely bottled up otherwise. He's far from a lock to make the roster even with New York's running back corps getting hit by the injury bug, and Atkinson looks to be well below rookie sixth-rounder Trenton Cannon in the pecking order. Cannon rushed 11 times for 40 yards in this one.

Jets' George Atkinson: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atkinson signed a contract with the Jets on Sunday.

Atkinson's signing with the Jets comes on the heels of Elijah McGuire breaking his foot. With McGuire set to miss several weeks, Atkinson is being brought in to add some depth to the position. Look for him to compete for a role as a reserve running back and special teams player.
