Jets' Neal Sterling: Ruled out for Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sterling (concussion) won't play in Thursday's game against the Browns, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Sterling suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to Miami and has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol. Eric Tomlinson and rookie Chris Herndon are both expected to see an increase in snaps in replace of Sterling.

Jets' Neal Sterling: Held out of Monday practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sterling (concussion) did not practice Monday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Sterling's veteran presence was severely missed as the Jets fell to the Dolphins on Sunday. With a short week on the horizon, it seems unlikely Sterling will be ready before the Jets take on the Browns this Thursday. If the course stays the same, it appears Eric Tomlinson and rookie Chris Herndon will split time at tight end.

Jets' Neal Sterling: Most involved tight end in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sterling caught all three of his targets for 27 yards in Monday's 48-17, Week 1 win over the Lions.

Sterling was easily New York's most productive tight end, with the other three on the roster combining for seven yards on one target. He saw the field on 40 of the team's 60 offensive snaps, with Chris Herndon (34 snaps), Eric Tomlinson (29) and Jordan Leggett (15) all involved to some degree as well. Sterling's strong preseason play appears to have catapulted him to the top of the depth chart, but the Jets' passing game likely won't be very reliant on the tight end position most weeks.

Jets' Neal Sterling: Secures one catch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sterling was targeted twice in Friday's 22-16 preseason loss to the Giants, coming away with one catch for 13 yards.

Sterling has thrown his hat in the ring for the starting tight end position in New York, though the 2015 seventh-rounder's 18 career catches up to this point don't inspire much confidence. He played eight snaps on offense and 15 more on special teams in this one.

Jets' Neal Sterling: Signs tender to stick with New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sterling inked his restricted free agent tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Sterling will have to put on a strong showing if he hopes to hang around past the preseason. Despite the somewhat long odds to survive the final roster cuts, the Jets' relative inexperience and depth at tight end bodes well for Sterling's chances.
