Jets' John Franklin-Myers: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin-Myers (calf) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Franklin-Myers was a non-participant to kick off this week's practice before logging limited workloads on consecutive days, so he appears to be trending in the right direction. Shaq Lawson and Tim Ward would be the prime beneficiaries of snaps should he ultimately have to sit out.

Jets' John Franklin-Myers: Ready for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
