12/17/17RBMatt ForteKNEEQUESTIONABLEForte (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Forte's situation is worth monitoring closely as Sunday's 1 p.m. EST kickoff approaches. If he's able to suit up Sunday, he would be in line to share snaps out of the Jets backfield with Bilal Powell. In the event that Forte is scratched, Powell would be in line to see added work in Week 15, thus boosting his fantasy upside. With Bryce Petty now at quarterback in the wake of Josh McCown's season-ending hand injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com relays that one "distinct tendency" displayed by Petty last season was that "he threw a lot of checkdowns" to Powell, suggesting Forte's role on passing downs could become more limited.

12/17/17DEMuhammad WilkersonNOT INJURY RELATEDOUTJets head coach Todd Bowles said that Wilkerson would be inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints in a coach's decision, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. Wilkerson won't make the trip with the team to New Orleans.

Wilkerson has been slowed by a broken toe and a shoulder injury for much of the season, but has yet to miss a game due to either issue. With only 3.5 sacks and 46 tackles across 13 contests, however, Wilkerson is in the midst of a second straight down season since inking a five-year, $86 million extension in the summer of 2016. In addition to his declining play on the field, Wilkerson has also routinely caused problems in the locker room the last two seasons, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Bowles' choice to hold Wilkerson out in Week 15 only adds more fuel to the notion that the Jets are planning to cut ties with the defensive end this offseason.

12/17/17GBrian WintersABDOMEN, ANKLEQUESTIONABLEWinters (abdomen, ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Winters was able to play through these ailments in Week 14 against the Broncos, but if he's unable to answer the call this week, expect Dakota Dozier to slot into the right guard position.

12/14/17WRJeremy KerleySuspensionSUSPENDThe Jets moved Kerley to their roster exception list earlier this week after he completed his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, Calvin Watkins of Newsday reports.

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said a few days ago that the team was still pondering Kerley's future with the organization, and it appears that remains the case as Sunday's game against the Saints approaches. Kerley resumed practicing Wednesday, but because the Jets were granted a roster exemption, the team won't have to make a decision on his fate until next Monday at 4 p.m. EST. If Bowles does decide that he wants Kerley to play this weekend, the receiver would have to be added to the 53-man roster at some point Saturday.

09/13/17WRLucky WhiteheadFootOUTWhitehead (foot) signed with the Jets' practice squad Friday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Whitehead rejoins the Jets' organization after reaching an injury settlement back in early September. Foot surgery ultimately led to Whitehead being reverted to the team's injured reserve, but it looks like he may be closer to full health now with his re-signing. It remains unclear if New York is planning on using the special teams star on its active roster this season.

08/12/17TEBrian ParkerUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEParker (undisclosed) was placed on IR on Sunday.

Given the IR designation, it seems as if Parker's season could be in danger of landing before takeoff. Parker appeared in nine games with the Chiefs in 2015.
