Cannon rushed three times for 17 yards in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Vikings.
Cannon also caught his lone target for a one-yard gain. Despite his increased involvement Sunday compared to usual, the reserve tailback holds little fantasy value and could be inactive if Christian McCaffrey returns following Carolina's bye in Week 13.
Cannon is expected to serve as the backup to Mike Davis with Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) and Reggie Bonnafon (ankle) both out Sunday against the Buccaneers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Person mentions that Alex Armah is also an option at running back, and the team could opt to promote Rodney Smith from the practice squad. Davis has previously proven himself capable of taking on a workhorse role with McCaffrey injured, so there isn't expected to be much work left over for Cannon, who has garnered more than two touches in a game only once this season.
Cannon rushed three times for 12 yards and caught both his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Bears.
Cannon served as Mike Davis' backup at tailback and did decently with his handful of touches. In fact, with a long reception of 19 yards, Cannon actually outgained Davis through the air. As long as Christian McCaffrey and Reggie Bonnafon remain sidelined with ankle injuries, expect Cannon to serve behind Davis and hold very mild fantasy value.
Coach Matt Rhule said Friday that Cannon will back up Mike Davis during Sunday's game against the Falcons, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Cannon looks set to serve as Carolina's No. 2 running back versus the Falcons, with Reggie Bonnafon (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list. Fullback Alex Armah will also play a depth role in the backfield, but Cannon would likely be the primary beneficiary of increased snaps if Davis were to get nicked up.
Cannon secured a spot on the team's 53-man roster Saturday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Cannon secured the third and final spot on the running back depth chart in the wake of the team cutting Reggie Bonnafon. Now that Cannon's on the roster, Pearson points out he likely will be on every special team play for the 2020 season. Don't expect Cannnon to produce any meaningful fantasy numbers for the upcoming campaign.
The Panthers claimed Cannon off waivers Tuesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.
Selected by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2018 draft, Cannon was active for all 16 games as a rookie, averaging 3.0 YPC on 38 rushes, hauling in 17 of 25 targets for 144 yards and scoring one TD. However, he was contained to one offensive snap and four appearances last season before he was placed on injured reserve Nov. 1 due to foot and ankle injuries. Cannon likely will vie with Mike Davis and Jordan Scarlett for one or two spots at the bottom of the Panthers' running back depth chart.
The Jets waived Cannon on Monday, Eric Allen and Randy Lange of the team's official site report.
Cannon was caught up in a numbers game in the backfield, as he likely would have found himself on the outside looking in for a spot on the regular-season roster after the Jets signed veteran Frank Gore in the offseason and spent a fourth-round pick on La'Mical Perine in the draft. After compiling 257 total yards and a touchdown in 2018 as a change-of-pace option, Cannon's role diminished considerably in 2019. He appeared in four games and played 58 total snaps, with only one coming on offense.
The Jets placed Cannon (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.
Cannon had missed three straight games while nursing a foot issue, and he now lands on IR due to the severity of the injury. Ty Montgomery will continue to serve as New York's top kick returner with Cannon sidelined. Cannon appeared in four games for the Jets this season, during which he logged just one offensive snap but played a key role on special teams.
Cannon (foot) will not practice Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Cannon appears to be trending toward a fourth straight absence. If he's unable to suit up against the Dolphins on Sunday, Ty Montgomery will once again work as the Jets' top kick returner.
Cannon (foot/ankle) did not participate at Wednesday's practice.
The 25-year-old has missed three straight games and doesn't appear to be trending in the right direction for Week 9. Ty Montgomery should continue working as the Jets' top kick returner if Cannon remains out this week.
Cannon (foot) won't play in Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Cannon wasn't able to practice this week, so he'll watch his third consecutive game in street clothes. Expect Vyncint Smith to continue working as the Jets' main kick returner until Cannon is healthy.
Cannon (foot/ankle) will not practice Thursday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Cannon will have one more opportunity to practice in some capacity before Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars. The 24-year-old was scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday, and the results -- when released -- will illuminate the severity of his current injuries. Vyncint Smith will serve as New York's top kick returner as long as Cannon remains sidelined.
Cannon (foot/ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Cannon was set to have an MRI on Tuesday, so the results will shed light on how long the running back will sit out -- he has missed three of the last four contests. The 24-year-old works mainly on special teams as a kick returner, and Vyncint Smith figures to stick in that role as long as Cannon is out.
Cannon will get an MRI to evaluate his foot injury, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Cannon has missed three of the Jets' last four games, including their last two contests. The 2018 sixth-round pick has only seen one offensive snap in four games this season but has racked up 96 yards on kick returns. More information about Cannon's injury should be revealed after his MRI.
Cannon (foot/ankle) won't play in Monday's game against New England, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.
Cannon was able to play through the injuries in Week 5, but as evidenced by this news, he'll miss his second straight game. In Cannon's stead, Vyncint Smith is expected to continue his role as the Jets' top kick returner, with Bilal Powell the third-string running back.
Cannon (foot/ankle) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Patriots.
Cannon played through ankle and hamstring issues in Week 5 but is now in danger of missing his second straight contest with the addition of the foot injury. Vyncint Smith will work as the Jets' top kick returner, assuming Cannon remains sidelined.
Cannon (foot/ankle) did not practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Cannon wasn't able to suit up Week 6 against Dallas. He'll have two more opportunities to upgrade his practice activity before Monday's tilt against the Patriots. If the second-year pro is forced to miss more time, expect Ty Montgomery to handle kick return duties once again.
Cannon (foot) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Cannon came into the game doubtful to suit up, so this news isn't quite surprising. Now that he's officially ruled out, Cannon's absence won't effect the offense, but Ty Montgomery looks to be in line to handle kick return duties Sunday.
Cannon (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Dallas, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
If Cannon sits this one out, Ty Montgomery would likely handle kick return duties. Cannon's role has been limited almost exclusively to special teams, as he's yet to touch the ball on offense this season.
Cannon (foot) is not practicing Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Cannon's foot issue has kept him from participating in two consecutive practices. He'll need to upgrade to at least a limited session Friday in order to suit up Week 6. If Cannon were forced to miss any time, Ty Montgomery would serve as New York's top kick returner.
