Cannon rushed twice for 16 yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Patriots. He finishes his rookie season with 113 yards and a touchdown on 38 carries, plus another 144 yards on 17 carries.
The sixth-round selection will be fighting for a roster spot with the Jets next season, though he'll likely have the inside track on the No. 3 running back role. Cannon's greatest asset is his speed, which could turn him into a future threat in the return game as well. He struggled with ball security on special teams in the preseason, so he'd be wise to work on that weakness ahead of his second NFL campaign.
Cannon rushed twice for four yards and caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 44-38 overtime loss to the Packers.
Cannon didn't get much work in a change-of-pace role behind Elijah McGuire. The speedster out of Virginia St. will complete his rookie campaign against the Patriots in Week 17.
Cannon (toe) carried the ball seven times for 13 yards and caught three of four targets for 24 yards in Saturday's 29-22 loss to Houston.
Cannon worked as a change-of-pace option behind Elijah McGuire, and that will be the case moving forward with Isaiah Crowell on injured reserve with a toe injury of his own. Neither Jets running back was able to get much going against the stout Houston front, but there should be more running room in Week 16 with the Packers coming to town.
Cannon (toe) is active for Saturday's game against the Texans.
Cannon's toe issue prevented him from logging full practice participation at any point this week, but the injury ultimately didn't impact his availability for gameday. Though he might be less than 100 percent healthy, Cannon should benefit from an enhanced role nonetheless after the Jets placed top back Isaiah Crowell (toe) on injured reserve Friday. Crowell's absence for the final three games elevates Elijah McGuire to the lead role, though Cannon should be locked in as the clear top change-of-pace option. De'Angelo Henderson is the No. 3 back for the Jets and probably won't be in store for much work Saturday after having just been promoted from the practice squad a day earlier.
Initially, it appeared as though Cannon would approach Saturday's contest against the Texans free of an injury designation, but a limited practice session Thursday has him listed as questionable. If Cannon is able to suit up this weekend, he'd be in line to work behind Elijah McGuire (ankle), with the Jets' top rusher Isaiah Crowell already ruled out.
