Lawrence Cager: Managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Cager (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Wednesday.

Cager's placement on the injured list allows the Jets to restore fellow wideout Donte Moncrief (undisclosed) to the practice squad. Coach Adam Gase said he expects Cager to miss multiple weeks.

Lawrence Cager: Back to practice roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager (hamstring) reverted to the Jets' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Cager suffered a serious hamstring injury during Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and coach Adam Gase expects him to miss a "couple weeks." The 23-year-old wide receiver will officially be on the practice squad during his recovery.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Expected to miss a couple weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager (hamstring) is expected to miss a "couple weeks," per coach Adam Gase, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports. "The MRI wasn't as bad as what it looked on the field. Obviously it's going to be probably a couple weeks, but we got a little lucky there," Gase said.

Cager sustained the injury in Thursday's game against the Broncos, crumpling to the turf while clutching his hamstring on a non-contact injury. While it's a relief that the undrafted rookie didn't suffer an even more serious injury, Cager looks unlikely to suit up against the Cardinals in Week 5 and could miss time beyond that game as well.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager (hamstring) will not return to Thursday's game against the Broncos, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Cager was initially labeled as 'doubtful' to retake the field, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see him be officially ruled out to begin the third quarter. He was targeted twice in the first half but did not record a catch.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Unlikely to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager (hamstring) is doubtful to return to Thursday's game against the Broncos, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old was injured while going up for a Sam Darnold pass attempt in the second quarter, and he returned to action momentarily before being once again pulled from the game. Cager had no receptions on two targets upon his exit, as the Jets remain with Jamison Crowder, Chris Hogan, Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith as the team's top wide receiver targets.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Back on the active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager has been added to the Jets' active roster for Thursday night's game against the Broncos.

Cager was elevated from the Jets' practice squad to the team's active roster ahead of Week 3 action and then proceeded to haul in two of his four targets for 35 yards in a 36-7 loss to the Colts. After that contest, he reverted back to the practice squad, but he's been summoned once again. It remains to be seen how busy he'll be Thursday night, however, with Jamison Crowder (hamstring) trending toward a return to action and Jeff Smith (shoulder) now off IR.

Lawrence Cager: Sent back down to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager reverted back to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Cager made his NFL debut and had two catches in Sunday's loss to the Colts, but he also failed to get his head around on a timing route that led to a pick-six. If New York's injury-riddled receiving corps doesn't heal up on a short week, Cager could be called right back up for Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Two catches in NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager made his NFL debut in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts, catching two balls for 35 yards on four targets.

Cager pulled in receptions of 16 and 19 yards, and that production was good enough for him to finish third on the team in receiving yards behind slot receiver Braxton Berrios (64) and running back Kalen Ballage (44). The undrafted rookie's role should shrink if New York's beat up wide receiver corps ever heals, and there's little fantasy appeal to a depth piece on a team that has been outscored 94-37 through three games.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Promoted to roster as No. 4 WR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager was elevated from the practice squad to the Jets' active roster ahead of their Week 3 trip to Indianapolis, Andy Vasquez of USA Today Sports reports.

Cager should see some game action against the Colts as one of four active wide receivers, along with Chris Hogan, Josh Malone and Braxton Berrios (hamstring), who is listed as questionable. If Berrios can't go, the undrafted free agent out of Georgia would see the field in three-wide sets.

Lawrence Cager: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets waived Cager (knee) on Saturday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

It's likely Cager is still carrying an injury tag since he had an MRI last week, so if he clears waivers he could land on the Jets' injured reserve. Regardless, the Jets' willingness to let Cager go signals that their receiver corps may not be as injured as it appears.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Not practicing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager (knee) did not practice Saturday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear what the result of Cager's recent MRI yielded, but we at least know for certain the undrafted free-agent rookie is not practicing Saturday. It's a critical distinction given a number of other Jets wideouts are also missing time due to various injuries.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Dealing with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager is set for an MRI on his swollen knee Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

This is tough news for the Georgia product, considering he is in the mix for a roster spot heading into the 2020 season. It's unclear how Cager picked up the injury, however, he won't return to the field until he gets the full go-ahead from the training staff after his MRI.

Jets' Lawrence Cager: Competing for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cager (ankle) will compete for a spot on the Jets' 53-man roster in training camp, Steve Lichtenstein of WFAN Radio reports.

Cager and former first-round pick Josh Doctson could be competing for the same roster spot, so if the undrafted rookie is able to showcase utility on special teams, he could see his chances of sticking with Gang Green increase. The Georgia product missed the final four games of his last season of college due to an ankle injury, from which he's now fully recovered.
