Jets' Sam Darnold: Expects to play Saturday
Darnold (foot) and coach Todd Bowles both expect the quarterback to be fine for Saturday's game against the Texans, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Bowles said the injury to Darnold's right foot is different from the issue that caused a three-game absence, but it's hard to imagine they aren't related in any way. Regardless, the rookie missed just one drive during Sunday's game in Buffalo, ultimately leading the Jets to 14 points in the fourth quarter to secure a 27-23 win. While he doesn't expect to miss any more time, Darnold likely will have a spot on the team's Week 15 injury report.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Isaiah Crowell: Not feeling great
Coach Todd Bowles said Crowell (foot) is feeling "pretty sore" Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Crowell was removed from Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo after playing just five snaps, finishing with two carries for five yards and one reception for two yards. He'd been listed as questionable due to a toe injury after managing just one limited practice (Friday) during the week. With the Jets now on a short week heading into Saturday's game against Houston, it may be difficult for Crowell to avoid an absence. Elijah McGuire took advantage Sunday in Buffalo with 83 yards and a score on 20 touches (three catches), while No. 3 back Trenton Cannon managed just seven yards on six touches but also found the end zone....

Jets' Josh McCown: Back to backup duty
McCown failed to complete his lone pass attempt in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo.
McCown presided over New York's second drive after Sam Darnold limped off to the locker room, but Darnold was able to reclaim his spot under center after that. As long as the rookie quarterback's foot injury doesn't flare up against the Texans in Week 15, McCown should remain relegated to a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Rishard Matthews: Poor season continues
Matthews hauled in his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
Matthews has yet to record double-digit yards in a game this season.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Jordan Leggett: One catch in Week 14
Leggett (knee) caught one of two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo.
The Jets didn't get much production out of the tight end position, as Chris Herndon finished with just one more yard than Leggett on the same number of targets and catches.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Jason Myers: Strong season continues
Myers connected on both field-goal attempts in addition to a trio of extra points in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
Myers was true from 47 and 21 yards out. He enters New York's Week 15 matchup with the Texans having made 30 of 32 field-goal tries.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Jermaine Kearse: Quiet in Week 14
Kearse caught one of two targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
Kearse was quiet in rookie quarterback Sam Darnold's (foot) return under center. While this performance left a lot to be desired, Kearse could find himself more involved against the Texans in Week 15 if Quincy Enunwa -- who left this one after aggravating an ankle injury -- is forced to sit out.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Chris Herndon: Quiet in Buffalo
Herndon was held to one catch for 14 yards on two targets in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
This was Herndon's worst performance since Week 5. The rookie tight end out of Miami has a bright fantasy future, but owners counting on him in the fantasy playoffs this season should do so at their own risk. He'll look to bounce back against the Texans in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Trenton Cannon: Scores TD in Buffalo
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 4-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....

Jets' Robby Anderson: Finds paydirt in Week 14
Anderson (ankle) caught four of seven targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
Despite battling a tough Buffalo secondary, Anderson took over in the fourth quarter. His 7-yard touchdown with 12:06 remaining tied the game at 20-20, then Anderson caught a crucial 37-yard pass down the sideline with under two minutes remaining. Anderson couldn't get both feet down on an end-zone target later in the drive, but his big catch helped set up Elijah McGuire's 1-yard score, which turned a 23-20 deficit into a 27-23 lead. The speedy wideout's getting healthy just in time to help out owners down the stretch. In Week 15, he draws a Houston team that just allowed Colts speedster T.Y. Hilton to rack up 199 receiving yards.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Sam Darnold: Toughs out injury in comeback win
Darnold completed 16 of 24 passes for 170 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo. He also rushed for 10 yards on four carries.
Darnold only threw six passes in the first half, completing four for 41 yards. He limped off to the locker room and didn't play on New York's second drive after rushing for nine yards on third-and-10 prior to a punt on the first, but Darnold was able to return for the Jets' third possession and beyond. His touchdown was a 7-yarder to Robby Anderson, and Darnold found Anderson for a 37-yard gain down the sideline inside of two minutes left to set up Elijah McGuire's game-winning touchdown run. The Jets would be wise to take it easy with their rookie signal-caller's bothersome foot injury, but expect Darnold to be under center against the Texans in Week 15 if things don't get any worse on that front....

Jets' Elijah McGuire: Scores winner after Crowell injury
McGuire rushed 17 times for 60 yards and a touchdown while adding three catches for 23 yards on four targets in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo.
McGuire got the bulk of the rushing work for New York after Isaiah Crowell was forced out early by a foot injury. While third-stringer Trenton Cannon scored the Jets' first rushing touchdown from four yards out, McGuire found paydirt on the game's most important play, giving the team a 27-23 lead by scoring from one yard out on fourth down with 1:17 remaining. If Crowell can't go in Week 15, McGuire will be asked to carry the mail against a formidable Houston front.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Quincy Enunwa: Aggravates ankle
Enuwna was removed late in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Bills with an ankle injury and is questionable to return, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
The wideout more than likely aggravated the high-ankle sprain that prevented him from playing in Weeks 7 and 8 and has made him a fixture on the Jets' injury reports ever since. It's unclear at this time how significant Enunwa's setback might be, but the Jets should offer an update on his condition coming out of halftime.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Isaiah Crowell: Exits Sunday game
Crowell was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bills with a foot injury.
Prior to his exit, Crowell had logged two carries for five yards and caught one pass for two yards. Elijah McGuire is next up for the Jets' carries while Crowell is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
