Jets' Neville Hewitt: Back with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt re-signed with the Jets on Friday on a one-year, $2 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hewitt will rejoin New York's linebacker corps, where he stands to kick off the 2020 campaign as a backup option behind C.J. Mosley (groin) and Avery Williamson (knee). With injury concerns still lingering around both interior starters, however, the 27-year-old could possess some upside as a stash in IDP formats.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Raises stock ahead of FA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt recorded four tackles and a pass defensed in Week 17 against the Bills. He finishes the season with 75 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.

Thrust into a larger role by season-ending injuries to C.J. Mosley and Avery Williamson, Hewitt showed some promise as a coverage linebacker and set new career highs in tackles, sacks and interceptions. The 26-year-old inside linebacker picked a great time to have a career season, as he's set to hit unrestricted free agency.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Picks up sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt recorded eight tackles (six solo) and one sack in Sunday's 16-10 victory over the Jets.

Hewitt was on the field for 57 of a possible 67 snaps. His season sack total is now up to 3.0 with one more week to play. He will look to carry that momentum in to Sunday's season finale against the Bills.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Tallies five tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt had five solo tackles during Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens.

The Jets had minimal success slowing down QB Lamar Jackson and Baltimore's offense, which averaged 7.3 yards per play. Hewitt has been limited as an IDP option of late and is averaging 5.2 tackles despite missing only a handful of defensive snaps over the last five games.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Makes seven tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt recorded seven tackles (four solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Raiders.

It was a second straight solid game for Hewitt. He has made 12 tackles (seven solo) to go with two pass breakups and an interception in two games since returning from a neck injury.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Picks off pass in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt made five tackles (three solo) and intercepted a pass in Sunday's win over Washington.

Hewitt returned after missing four games due to a neck injury and didn't miss a beat, intercepting his second pass attempt of the season. The 26-year-old played all 68 snaps on defense and should be good to go moving forward.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Redskins.

Hewitt will take the field for the first time since Week 6 when he suffered a stinger. The fifth-year linebacker is expected to slot in at starting inside linebacker, and he has solid IDP aptitude with 37 tackles (23 solo), two sacks and two pass breakups through five contests.

November 16, 2019 10:56 AM
Jets' Neville Hewitt: Labeled questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Redskins.

Hewitt has not played since Week 6, as he has been nursing a neck injury. His limited participation at practice all week seems to indicate he is trending in the right direction, but we will not know his status for sure until closer to game time.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Officially out vs. Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Hewitt was tagged as doubtful for this contest, so it's not surprising he's unable to go. Both of the Jets' inside linebackers will be sitting out since C.J. Mosley (groin) is in the midst of an extended absence. Paul Worrilow and James Burgess figure to start in their places Sunday.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Doubtful for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck/knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Giants.

Hewitt appears to be trending toward a fourth straight absence due to his lingering neck injury. The starting linebacker also dealt with a knee issue during practices this week. With C.J. Mosley (groin) ruled out and Jordan Jenkins (calf) listed as questionable, the Jets' banged up linebacker corps could prove to be an exploitable weakness Week 10.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Knee injury surfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck/knee) is not cleared for contact Monday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Hewitt has missed the last three games due to a neck injury, and he now appears to be dealing with a knee issue. It remains to be seen whether the knee injury is a new development, or something that Hewitt has been nursing since he was injured in Week 6's win over the Cowboys. James Burgess and B.J. Bello will continue to see increased roles on defense as long as Hewitt is unable to retake the field.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) won't play in Sunday's clash against Miami.

Hewitt came into the game owning a doubtful tag, so his absence isn't quite surprising. The 26-year-old is one of five linebackers dealing with injury, as C.J. Mosely (groin) and Blake Cashman (shoulder) are among the scratches. In the wake of the injury bug, James Burgess, B.J. Bello and Frankie Luvu are the only healthy inside linebackers on the roster for the game.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game at Miami.

Hewitt wasn't expected to be available this weekend but kept alive a slim chance of suiting up after working as a limited practice participant Friday. C.J. Mosley (groin) is also out and Blake Cashman (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve, leaving the Jets with James Burgess, B.J. Bello and Frankie Luvu -- all of whom joined the 53-man roster within the last week -- to work at inside linebacker.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Likely out for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is not expected to suit up against the Dolphins on Sunday, Mike Clay of ESPN.com reports.

Hewitt hasn't practiced in any capacity this week, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. With C.J. Mosley (groin) also out and Blake Cashman (shoulder) nursing a season-ending injury, James Burgess and Brandon Copeland are the likeliest candidates to start at inside linebacker.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Won't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) will not practice Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Hewitt has missed the last two games due to a neck injury, and he's not trending in the right direction for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Dolphins. As of Thursday, James Burgess and B.J. Bello are the Jets' only healthy inside linebackers.

October 27, 2019 12:00 PM
Jets' Neville Hewitt: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) won't play in Sunday's matchup with Jacksonville.

Hewitt was deemed doubtful to suit up heading into the contest, so this news isn't quite surprising. With C.J. Mosley (groin) and Albert McClellan (concussion) also sidelined, Blake Cashman and James Burgess are the team's only healthy inside linebackers for the game.

October 25, 2019 08:56 PM
Jets' Neville Hewitt: Carries doubtful tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

With C.J. Mosley (groin) and Albert McClellan (concussion) already ruled out, the Jets have just one healthy inside linebacker -- Blake Cashman. Expect Gang Green to shift either Tarell Bashman or Harvey Langi to a starting interior role while also possibly activating a player from the practice squad to serve as depth.

Jets' Neville Hewitt: Sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is officially inactive for Monday's game against the Patriots, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Hewitt suffered the neck stinger in last week's win of the Cowboys and was unable to practice leading up to this week's game. Luckily for the Jets, they will get stud C.J. Mosely (groin) back from injury to reinforce the linebacking corps. Expect Blake Cashman to assume the other inside linebacker role next to Mosley for Monday's game with Hewitt sidelined.

October 19, 2019 07:44 PM
Jets' Neville Hewitt: Doubtful for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (neck) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Patriots.

Hewitt returned to last Sunday's win over the Cowboys after suffering the stinger, but he was unable to participate at practice this week. Blake Cashman enters Monday's game as the team's only fully healthy inside linebacker since C.J. Mosley (groin) is questionable and Albert McClellan (concussion) is out.

October 13, 2019 07:16 PM
Jets' Neville Hewitt: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hewitt (stinger) returned to Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Hewitt missed a few drives, but he re-entered the game in the fourth quarter. He'll finish the game at inside linebacker since Albert McClellan is being evaluated for a concussion.
