Jets' Chris Herndon: Might be looking at timeshare
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Teammate Ryan Griffin (ankle) said that he's excited to team up with Herndon (ribs) in 2020, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Between a suspension, a hamstring injury and a season-ending rib injury, Herndon was limited to one game and 18 snaps in his second NFL season. Meanwhile, Griffin caught 34 passes for 320 yards and a career-high five touchdowns, starting at tight end in all 13 of his appearances before an ankle injury held him out for the final three weeks. Griffin was expecting a six-month recovery process after December surgery, which likely means Herndon will be healthy before his teammate. With Griffin signing a three-year, $9.6 million extension in November, the two tight ends should compete for snaps in 2020, though they could also see work at the same time in certain formations. A healthy position group -- if it ever happens -- might inspire coach Adam Gase to deviate from his preference for three-wide formations.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (ribs) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenburg of the Jets' official site reports.

Herndon opened his second pro campaign with a four-game suspension and promptly suffered a hamstring injury upon his return to the team, sidelining him for another four contests. He finally made his season debut this past Sunday against the Giants, only to suffer a broken rib. Moving forward, the Jets will rely on Ryan Griffin, Trevon Wesco and Daniel Brown to man tight end.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Breaks rib Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon suffered a broken rib during Sunday's 34-37 win over the Giants and will miss multiple weeks, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Herndon's season debut was delayed to Week 10 due to a four-game suspension and an ensuing Grade 1 hamstring strain. After managing just 28 percent of the offensive snaps and catching one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's barn burner, he's now picked up yet another serious injury. Look for Ryan Griffin to continue to be the most utilized Jets tight end.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Quiet in first game action of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) finally made his season debut and caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Giants.

A suspension and hamstring injury combined to wipe away the first half of Herndon's season, but the second-year tight end is finally back in the fold. Expect better things from Herndon moving forward, as he flashed potential with 502 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Listed as active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

We'd like to see the tight end register a full and productive game before endorsing him as a reliable lineup option, but once Herndon re-establishes his role in the Jets' passing attack, he has a solid chance to re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Listed as questionable, but expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants after practicing in a limited fashion all week, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

That said, Cimini adds that the tight end -- who was in uniform in Week 9 but did not see the field -- is expected to make his debut in the Jets offense this Sunday. "It looks good," coach Adam Gase said Friday. Once Herndon re-establishes his role in the Jets passing attack, the tight end could re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks, but he's a speculative lineup option in Week 10.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Could be ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) will be limited at practice Friday, but head coach Adam Gase said "it looks good" when asked about Herndon's chances of playing Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Herndon was active for last week's game and ultimately did not take the field, but it appears he has a chance to see his first action of the season Sunday against the Giants. After last week's goose egg, though, fantasy players will probably want to look for something definitive before including him in Week 10 lineups.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Logs another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday.

We'll circle back on Herndon's status Friday, but the 2018 fourth-rounder appears to have a solid chance to make his season debut Sunday against the Giants. Once the tight end re-proves his health with a full and productive game, Herndon could re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

That said, Manish Mehta of the Daily News relays that coach Adam Gase anticipates that Herndon will be able to practice fully at some point this week. If Gase's prediction comes to pass, Herndon will have a good chance to receive his first playing time of the season Sunday against the Giants. Herndon was active for the Jets' Week 9 loss to Miami, but didn't play in the contest.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Doesn't see field in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) didn't get into Sunday's 26-18 loss to Miami.

Herndon was active but didn't get involved in the offense, with Ryan Griffin continuing to shoulder the workload at tight end. It's apparent that Herndon's hamstring still isn't healthy, but perhaps it will heal up by the time the Jets face the Giants in the battle for New York in Week 10.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Active, but status unclear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Herndon will suit up for the first time this season, but it's unclear if he's actually recovered from the hamstring injury. All seven of the Jets' inactive players are dealing with injuries that are apparently more concerning than Herndon's, so the tight end's active status doesn't necessarily mean he will play, per Brian Costello of the New York Post. Given the uncertainty of his role against the Dolphins -- if he even has one at all -- Herndon probably is best left on the bench or waiver wire in the majority of fantasy leagues this week.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Gets questionable tag for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

The questionable designation implies that Herndon has a 50-50 shot of making his 2019 debut, but coach Adam Gase suggested earlier Friday that the tight end is likely trending toward another absence this weekend, per Brian Costello of the New York Post. The status of Herndon, who was limited in practice all week, may ultimately hinge on what he's able to do during a pregame workout Sunday. In the event Herndon is sidelined again, Ryan Griffin would likely start and see the majority of the snaps at tight end.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Could miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase didn't express much optimism Friday about Herndon's (hamstring) chances of making his season debut Sunday against the Dolphins, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Herndon will practice on a limited basis for the third day in a row, but he did the same last week and was ultimately ruled out. Since he didn't take a step forward in his practice activity, it sounds like the Jets aren't inclined to bring him back in Week 9. The Jets' final injury report will reveal whether Herndon carries a designation into the weekend.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Set for limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

The Jets also restricted Herndon's workload in Wednesday's practice, so his activity Thursday doesn't represent any meaningful step forward. Since Herndon has yet to play this season after serving a four-game suspension before missing the subsequent three contests with the injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post speculates that the tight end's status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is "very much up in the air." With that in mind, Herndon may need to turn in a full practice Friday for the Jets to sign off on him playing this weekend.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Limited at practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) will remain limited at practice Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Herndon was a limited participant throughout last week, initially earning a "doubtful" tag on the final injury report before the Jets downgraded him to "out" Saturday ahead of Sunday's eventual loss to the Jaguars. After missing four games with a suspension and three more with a hamstring strain, Herndon is looking shaky for the Week 9 contest in Miami.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Inching toward season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Herndon (hamstring) "looks better" for Sunday's game at Miami, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Since completing a four-game suspension to start the season, Herndon has tended to a hamstring strain, missing four more contests as a result. He made progress last week with limited listings on all three injury reports, but Gase and company may want Herndon to complete a full session before giving him the all-clear to return to action. Until Herndon does so, Ryan Griffin figures to be the Jets' primary tight end.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) has been downgraded to out Saturday for the team's contest against the Jaguars on Sunday.

Herndon was able to participate in limited fashion all week, but an initial doubtful designation following Friday's injury report precluded what was likely going to be an inevitable seventh straight missed game by the tight end, and third straight due to injury. Longer term, Herndon's status certainly seems to be trending in the right direction, but fantasy owners will need to at least wait another week.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Jacksonville, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

After completing a four-game suspension, Herndon immediately injured his hamstring during a workout and is slated to miss his third consecutive contest as a result. On a positive note, he practiced in a limited capacity this week, so he appears to be trending toward his first appearance of the season. Assuming he's indeed inactive this weekend, his next chance to suit up will be Sunday, Nov. 3 in Miami.

Jets' Chris Herndon: Will be limited again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) will be limited at Friday's practice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Herndon will practice Friday for a third straight day, but he will remain limited, and Costello suggests he will not be ready to play just yet. The Jets' final injury report will reveal whether Herndon has any chance to take the field in Week 8, or if he'll remain sidelined for another game.

October 24, 2019 11:20 AM
Jets' Chris Herndon: In line for limited work Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herndon (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

That participation level matches what Herndon was able to do Wednesday and comes on the heels of the tight end being a non-participant in practice all of last week. Herndon appears to have a decent shot at making his season debut Sunday in Jacksonville, but he may need to put in a full practice Friday to guarantee his availability.
