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.
Cannon (toe) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Texans after practicing fully Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Meanwhile, Isaiah Crowell (toe) has been ruled out this week, while Elijah McGuire (ankle) is listed as questionable after practicing in a limited fashion Wednesday and Thursday. Given that McGuire was able to practice two days in a row, it seems likely that he'll probably tough things out Saturday, but if he ends up limited at all, or is unavailable, Cannon would be next up for the Jets' carries. In any case, Crowell's absence at a minimum provides Cannon with an opportunity to see added touches this weekend, which makes him worthy of a speculative pickup by those scrambling for short-term backfield help.
Cannon (toe) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
With each of the Jets' three running backs bothered by an injury, Cannon could handle a significant role if he's able to suit up for Saturday's game against the Texans. Isaiah Crowell (foot) missed another practice Wednesday, while Elijah McGuire (ankle) joined Cannon as a limited participant. The Jets will release their final injury report Thursday.
Cannon (toe) did not practice Tuesday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
Cannon appears to have sustained a toe injury during Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills. The rookie sixth-round pick could be in line for a notable workload if he's able to get healthy in the near future, with Isaiah Crowell (toe) nursing what appears to be a significant injury. However, Saturday's approaching matchup against the Texans' stout defensive line does not inspire much confidence in Cannon even if he were to serve as the Jets' top running back.
Cannon rushed five times for three yards and a touchdown while catching his lone target for four yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
Cannon was mostly quiet even though fellow running back Isaiah Crowell was forced to exit due to a foot injury. The rookie running back did manage to find paydirt on a four-yard carry in the second quarter, but Cannon's lack of usage relative to Elijah McGuire following Crowell's injury doesn't inspire much confidence ahead of New York's Week 15 meeting with the Texans, regardless of Crowell's health.
