Position Listing
Korren Kirven
No Updates
Xavier Cooper
News
Cooper signed with the Jets on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Cooper was waived by the 49ers a week ago but it didn't take him long to find a new home in the NFL. The defensive lineman played in five games this season for San Francisco, posting seven tackles and a half sack in that time. With the Jets dealing with several injuries on the defensive line, Cooper will be brought in to add some insurance to the unit.

Darryl Roberts
News
Roberts suffered a hamstring injury Sunday against the Jaguars and is doubtful to return, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Roberts played 60 defensive snaps against Miami in Week 3, recording seven solo tackles. He plays a good bunch as the No. 3 corner for the Jets, so a quick return would be favorable. His next opportunity to play will be Week 5 against the Browns.

Matt Forte
News
Forte (knee) said Friday that he's hopeful to continue his playing career in 2018, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.

If Forte is serious about keeping his career alive, he'll likely have to find a new home, as the Jets are expected to cut the 32-year-old during the offseason. Though he's still an effective pass catcher, Forte has been limited by chronic knee problems during his past two seasons in New York that have limited him to 3.7 yards per carry both in 2016 and 2017. As a result, it's unlikely that any team that picks Forte up this offseason would earmark the veteran for much more than a third-down role.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bruce Carter
News
Carter (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Carter was unable to practice this week while battling the groin injury and will miss his second game of the season as a result. The linebacker has been used almost exclusively on special teams this season, producing five tackles across 11 contests.

Lucky Whitehead
News
Whitehead was promoted to the Jets' 53-man roster on Saturday.

Whitehead signed with the Jets' practice squad in late November after a brief stint with the team to start the season, which ended by Whitehead being waived/injured. The 25-year-old is unlikely to have a significant impact offensively, but could be utilized on special teams.

Rashard Robinson
News
Robinson was arrested in December following a traffic stop in Morris County, N.J., Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

Robinson was pulled over for driving carelessly when the police found marijuana-laced candy in his car. The Jets have no comment on the legal matter at this time. Robinson saw a major drop in reps once he was traded from the 49ers to the Jets in October, logging two tackles across six games in New York. The 24-year-old, who has had a troubled legal history, is under contract through the 2019 season, but this latest offense could hurt his chances of returning to the team.

Juston Burris
News
Burris has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a concussion, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Burris fills in at cornerback when there are injuries, but with the rest of the secondary is healthy, Burris wouldn't have played much on defense anyway. Expect Robert Nelson and Derrick Jones to fill in on special teams.

Akeem Judd
News
Judd was promoted to the Jets' active roster Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official website reports.

Judd was signed to the Jets' practice squad Oct. 24 after being released by the Titans. He originally signed with the latter after going undrafted this past offseason. He figures to mainly provide special teams help, as he is slotted as the No. 4 running back on the depth chart.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Xavier Coleman
News
Coleman (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Coleman was rarely a participant outside of special teams, and although he'll be eligible to return in Week 16, it's unlikely the Jets activate him.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Demario Davis
News
Davis had a career-high 135 tackles and five sacks during the 2017 season.

Coming off back-to-back seasons with fewer than 100 tackles, Davis beat his previous season-best by 19 while also adding 1.5 more sacks than his best effort before this past year. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he will surely be one of the Jets' top priorities.

Jordan Jenkins
News
Jenkins (calf) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Jenkins missed practice during the week and was doubtful to play on Thursday, making his inactive status unsurprising. Now missing his second straight game, it's unclear when the rookie will make his debut, but the long week prior to the team's Week 3 game may be enough for him to return by then.

Josh McCown
News
The hand injury that ended McCown's 2017 season is "healing up" and the veteran QB indicated that he is just a "few weeks away" from being 100 percent, NJ.com reports.

The 38-year-old signal caller is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he's leaning toward playing again in 2018, and if so would prefer to return to the Jets. Per the report, GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles have both said they'd like McCown back next season and a reunion makes sense, given that the team seems likely to draft its QB-of-the-future in April. In such a scenario McCown would be an ideal mentor/bridge starter for the team.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for the start of training camp
Charone Peake
News
Jets coach Todd Bowles said Peake, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a high-ankle sprain, is a candidate to return later in the season, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

With just one target and one catch through three weeks, Peake had been unable to make the most of his opportunity in a less-than-stellar Jets receiving corps. He'll need to spend at least eight weeks on IR while recovering from the ankle injury, but the team might consider bringing him back late in the season if it doesn't have two more appealing players to activate. The 2016 seventh-round pick likely would still have a limited role if he's able to rejoin the Jets.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ben Braden
No Updates
Micah Awe
News
Awe signed a contract with the Jets on Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Awe signed with the Jets after playing for the British Columbia Lions of the CFL last year. The former Texas Tech linebacker has had stints on the practice squads of the Detroit Lions and the Buccaneers but has yet to make a roster after going undrafted in 2015. He'll look to make it through the offseason with the Jets and hold onto a depth slot in 2018.

Tre McBride
News
The Jets signed McBride (undisclosed) to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

McBride snagged eight of 15 targets for 144 yards across eight games for the Bears this season but was let go in late November. Shortly thereafter he joined the Jets' practice squad, where he finished out the year on the practice squad injury list due to an undisclosed issue. While it isn't clear if he's returned to full health at this juncture, McBride has plenty of time to recover before workouts start up in April.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
JoJo Natson
News
Natson caught one of two targets for 19 yards and rushed once for 15 yards during Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Natson registered positive yards for the first time this season, but with the Jets eliminated from playoff contention, he may see an increase in snaps in the final two weeks. That being said, with Bryce Petty under center it's tough to see a fantasy breakout coming.

Jahad Thomas
News
Thomas was promoted to the Jets' 53-man roster Saturday.

Thomas was on the Jets' practice squad and spent training camp with the team prior to falling victim to roster cutdowns. The 22-year-old should serve as the team's No. 3 running back now that veteran Matt Forte (knee) now that placed on injured reserve.

Christian Hackenberg
News
Hackenberg could see his first NFL snaps in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Patriots, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

While still committed to Bryce Petty as the starting quarterback, Jets head coach Todd Bowles acknowledged Wednesday that Hackenberg could be used as a mid-game replacement. It's increasingly clear that the Jets don't view either player as a potential franchise quarterback, but there's no harm in giving Hackenberg a brief look, given that Petty has completed less than half his passes and produced just 4.1 yards per attempt this season. Hackenberg can't possibly be much worse.

Kacy Rodgers
No Updates
Chandler Catanzaro
News
Catanzaro connected on 25 of 30 field goal attempts and all 29 of his PATs during the 2017 season.

Catanzaro was a steady producer during his first season in New York, hitting all of his attempts from 20-29, 30-39 and 50+. His PATs dropped considerably after moving from Arizona, and while the Jets' offense could improve next season, it's unlikely to be enough to push Catanzaro into another tier of fantasy options, if he stays in New York.

Julian Stanford
News
Stanford re-signed with the Jets on Monday.

Stanford was released by the Jets in a procedural move last Friday but now returns as expected after just a couple of days. The 26-year-old played nine games for New York last season, totaling 22 tackles while also starting three of those contests. After dealing with an ankle problem last term, Stanford will hope to make the team's roster again as a depth linebacker and special teams contributor.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins
News
Seferian-Jenkins finished the 2017 season with 50 catches on 74 targets for 357 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games.

While the total production wasn't overly impressive, Seferian-Jenkins had one of the better offensive seasons for a Jets tight end in recent memory. In fact, he had multiple touchdowns overturned this season due to questionable calls (or questionable NFL rules), which would have obviously boosted his total production. That said, he was never used much as a high-volume receiver, and it's unlikely to happen if he returns next year. The unrestricted free agent has indicated that he would like to come back, though he's apparently already turned down a two-year, $8 million contract offer.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Lac Edwards
No Updates
Obum Gwacham
News
Gwacham signed a contract Wednesday with the Jets, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

Gwacham takes the roster spot of fellow linebacker Dylan Donahue (elbow), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Considering Donahue saw double-digit defensive snaps each of the past three weeks, Gwacham could have a small role with the Jets right out of the gate.

Darron Lee
News
Lee finished the 2017 season with 94 tackles and three sacks.

Lee's playing time greatly increased from his rookie season, and he paid it off by racking up 21 more tackles and two more sacks. He was very consistent for the Jets throughout the season and even reached double-digit tackles twice. Davis is signed through the 2019 season and there's every reason to believe he'll be back in the middle of the Jets' defense next season.

Quinton Patton
News
Patton (foot) was released from the Jets' injured reserve with an injury settlement, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Patton underwent foot surgery in December and has yet to fully recover. With there likely being at least 10 receivers ahead of him on the 90-man depth chart, he faced long odds to make the roster even if he was healthy. Once his foot heals, Patton will look to catch on with another team in 2017.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kelvin Beachum
News
Beachum is expected to start at left tackle once again in 2017, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.

Beachum frequented the injury report last season, but he played in all 16 regular-season games. Although he sat out during some offseason team activities due to residual soreness in his knee, that doesn't appear to be slowing him down in camp and shouldn't limit him come the regular season.

Jordan Leggett
News
Leggett (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Leggett suffered the knee injury in Week 2 of the preseason and was unable to shake it during the regular season. With their open roster spot, the Jets signed defensive lineman Xavier Cooper.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jonotthan Harrison
News
Harrison (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Harrison appears to have recovered from the hand injury he sustained prior to the Jets' Week 11 bye.

Damore'ea Stringfellow
News
The Jets signed Stringfellow to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Stringfellow, who went undrafted out of Ole Miss last spring, impressed in the preseason with the Dolphins and will look to carve out a reserve role at receiver with the Jets this offseason.

Jermaine Kearse
News
Kearse snagged five of seven targets for 59 yards during Sunday's 26-6 loss to New England.

Kearse had a brief fall-off in Weeks 14 and 15 when he caught just four total passes for 32 yards, but ended 2017 right with back-to-back games with five receptions. Kearse ended up being a great find for the Jets following a late-offseason trade, finishing the year with 65 catches and 810 yards. He has one year remaining on his contract for a relative bargain of $5 million.

Robby Anderson
News
Anderson pleaded not guilty Monday in Broward County (Fla.) Circuit Court to the nine charges he faces stemming from his Jan. 19 arrest, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

The 24-year-old Anderson faces three felony charges, a misdemeanor and five traffic violations, according to the arrest report. It's the second straight offseason for Anderson that has been clouded by legal issues, as he was previously arrested last May for pushing a police officer during a dispute at a Miami music festival. Anderson will report to court March 26 to address that incident, though it remains unclear when his trial for the Jan. 19 arrest will commence.

Jamal Adams
News
Adams finished his rookie season with 83 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and six deflected passes.

Adams had his moments of struggles, but overall he was a vital piece to the Jets' defense and stood out around the line of scrimmage. The lack of interceptions is a slight concern, but there is plenty of optimism within the team that those will come as he continues to improve.

Kony Ealy
News
Ealy (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's contest against the Patriots.

Ealy was a late addition to the Jets' injury report on Friday after suffering a minor knee injury in practice at some point, but the defensive end will be able to suit up in Week 17. He could see an increased role as well, while starter Muhammad Wilkerson (coach's decision) has been ruled out.

Deon Simon
News
Simon was signed to the active roster Wednesday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Simon was with the Jets for the entire preseason but didn't survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. He takes the roster spot of Brian Winters (abdomen), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

ArDarius Stewart
News
Stewart caught six of 13 targets for 82 yards during the 2017 season.

Stewart, a third-round pick out of Alabama, was active for 15 games but was never able to improve on the two receptions he had in the opening week against Buffalo. With a full season under his belt, there will surely be higher expectations for 2018, but his fantasy prospects will be more dependent on the other wideouts on the depth chart and who will be under center for the Jets.

Brandon Shell
News
Shell (concussion) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Shell sustained a concussion in Week 16 and evidently wasn't able to clear protocol in time. He'll finish the season as Pro Football Focus' 51st highest-graded offensive tackle to date, struggling more in run blocking than pass protection.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Quincy Enunwa
News
Enunwa (neck) had a post-surgery doctor's appointment Monday in which an "X-ray looked really good," Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Two months removed from the procedure on a bulging disk in his neck, Enunwa is on course in his recovery. While he won't return this season, he expects to return to health in advance of the 2018 campaign. In the meantime, the Jets will continue to lean on wideouts Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Jeremy Kerley.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Thomas Hennessy
News
Hennessy (concussion) is absent from the Jets' final injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Saints.

Hennessy was knocked out of last week's 23-0 loss to the Broncos after suffering a concussion. He was subsequently limited in practice throughout the week, but it appears he has cleared the concussion protocol. He will presumably resume his role as a depth offensive lineman for the club.

Leonard Williams
News
Williams finished the 2017 season with 47 tackles and two sacks.

The drop in sacks from seven to two was certainly a concern for the Jets, but Williams is still easily the best defensive lineman on the team. He is likely to be asked to do even more in 2018, as the team is expected to move on from Muhammed Wilkerson, who has been incredibly poor the past two years. If that's the case, it's possible the Jets move Williams outside more, which could help his sack total move back up.

Bryce Petty
News
Petty could be cut this offseason, NorthJersey.com reports.

Petty started the final three games of the regular season in place of the injured Josh McCown (hand), completing 55 of 112 passes for one touchdown and three interceptions for the year. He was used almost exclusively as a backup during his time in New York, and while he always stayed ahead of Christian Hackenberg on the depth chart, there were very few glimpses of legitimate fantasy upside. Despite McCown heading for free agency, it became very clear that Petty was not going to be the quarterback of the future for the Jets, so his potential release would come as no surprise.

Jeremy Clark
News
Clark (knee) was activated from the reserve/Non-Football Injury list and added to the Jets' 53-man roster Friday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Clark, who had been in the final stages of recovering from a torn ACL he sustained in college, will have a chance to make his NFL debut with the Jets during their final four games this season. The 2017 sixth-rounder will likely serve in a depth role in the secondary and could see action on special teams.

Mike Pennel
News
Pennel signed a contract with the Jets on Wednesday.

Pennel was claimed by the Jets back in February but the team didn't tender him as a restricted free agent and let him hit the open market. The details of his deal are unclear, but he'll be with the team for at least next season. The four-year veteran had 24 tackles, including a sack, and a forced fumble while playing in eight games for the Packers in 2016.

Muhammad Wilkerson
News
Wilkerson finished the 2017 season with a career-low 46 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 13 games.

After signing a huge five-year, $86 million contract in 2016, Wilkerson saw a quick decline in his production, enough so that the Jets are fully ready to move on. Wilkerson was inactive for the last three games of the season, and it would take a significant change of heart for the team to bring him back. It's now all a matter of how they get rid of him, as he's slated to be a $20 million cap hit next season.

Dylan Donahue
Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
No Updates
Terrence Brooks
News
Brooks (hamstring) practiced without limitations Wednesday and is in line to play Sunday against Tampa Bay, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Brooks has only played a double-digit defensive snap count once this season, so even in his return, fantasy owners shouldn't expect much from the fourth-year pro.

Eric Tomlinson
News
Tomlinson caught eight of 11 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown during the 2017 season.

Tomlinson was primarily used as a run blocker during his 14 appearances this season, and with Austin Seferian-Jenkins an unrestricted free agent, it seems pretty likely that the Jets will try to bring the former, a restricted free agent, back. Nevertheless, even if he moves up the depth chart ahead of the 2018 season, there's little reason to believe he'll become a usable asset in most fantasy formats.

Chris Gragg
News
Gragg (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday, The Associated Press reports.

Gragg broke his ankle in Thursday's preseason finale. He's likely to remain on IR for the duration of the season.

Ben Turk
No Updates
Marcus Maye
News
Maye (ankle) was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain following Sunday's 26-6 loss to the Patriots, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The injury initially sparked fears of a potential fracture, but head coach Todd Bowles indicated those tests came back negative. Maye finishes his rookie season with 79 tackles (58 solo), two interceptions and a forced fumble, playing in all 16 games.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bilal Powell
News
The Jets view Powell as a "complementary" running back, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

It's tempting to pencil Powell in as the Jets' featured ballcarrier ahead of the 2018 season when considering teammate Matt Forte (knee) is a likely candidate to be released this offseason. However, it seems prudent to temper any and all expectations of that notion coming to fruition until after the team's running back corps is settled, as the Jets reportedly believe Powell is most effective when he doesn't need to consistently carry a heavy workload. There's thus a strong possibility the team adds backfield competition through either free agency or the draft. Meanwhile, 2017 sixth-rounder Elijah McGuire will return alongside Powell and should remain involved in the offense to at least some degree.

Elijah McGuire
News
McGuire finished the 2017 season with 88 carries for 315 yards and one touchdown as well as 17 receptions on 26 targets for 177 receiving yards and another score.

McGuire never found consistent playing time while trying to grab carries away from Bilal Powell and Matt Forte, though he showed a glimpse of his upside in Week 4 against Jacksonville when he rushed 10 times for 93 yards and a touchdown while adding two catches for 38 receiving yards. Nevertheless, it was always tough to get consistent touches, something that may not be as difficult next year if Forte doesn't return. Unfortunately for McGuire, he'll still likely be behind Powell on the depth chart, which will limit his upside.

Bryson Keeton

Keeton (knee) reverted to the Jets' injured reserve Monday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Keeton tore his ACL in Sunday's practice and was subsequently waived/injured by the Jets shortly thereafter. After clearing waivers, he reverts to IR.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
David Bass
News
Bass was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Bass only managed one tackle so far this season, playing mostly in a special team's role with the Seahawks. The team will now go ahead with four defensive ends on the active roster, with Dion Jordan (knee) currently on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.

Brisly Estime
News
Estime (Achilles) was added to the Jets' reserve/injured list Tuesday.

Estime tore his Achilles during the first week of OTAs and after initially being released he was added back onto the roster under the reserve/injured list. The wideout does not cost the Jets a roster spot and will likely remain with the team for at least the remainder of the offseason, although there is no chance he plays this year.

Josh Martin
News
The Jets exercised Martin's $1.8 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

It was likely an easy decision for the Jets to bring back Martin after he finished the past season in a starting role at outside linebacker and acquitted himself well in that capacity. The 26-year-old achieved career highs across the board in 2017, finishing with 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pass breakup. Look for him to fill at least a rotational role at linebacker to go along with his duties on special teams during the upcoming season.

Neal Sterling
News
Sterling signed with the Jets on Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

This move comes almost three weeks after Sterling was waived by the Jets. He had just one reception for eight yards in three games for the Jets previously this season, and he'll likely head back into a reserve role.

Morris Claiborne
News
Claiborne (stinger) has returned to Sunday's game, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Claiborne suffered a stinger early in the first quarter of Sunday's game. The issue wasn't thought to be serious and likely won't impact Claiborne much at all going forward.

Ed Stinson
News
Stinson (neck) reverted to injured reserve Monday, according to the league's official transaction log.

Stinson made two separate stints with the Jets this season and made four game appearances in total, but only accrued one tackle on 51 defensive snaps. He appeared to sustain a neck injury in practice last week, however, and now seems set to finish out the year on IR.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jalin Marshall
News
The Jets signed Marshall to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Marshall spent the beginning of the season with the Jets while serving a four-game suspension for a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. However, he wasn't added to the active roster upon his reinstatement but was instead waived and signed to the Jets' practice squad, where he finished out the season. The Jets have one of the most fluid receiver depth charts in the league and there would seem to be an opportunity for the Ohio State product to snag a spot near the bottom of the totem pole.

Lawrence Thomas
News
Thomas (concussion) did not practice Monday and has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Buffalo, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Had the Jets not been on a short week, there's a small chance Thomas would have been benefited from the extra time and been available for a Sunday contest. With Thomas out, the Jets will lean more heavily on the shoulders of Leonard Williams and Kony Ealy in Week 9 action.

Freddie Bishop
News
The Jets promoted Bishop to their 53-man roster Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Bishop has moved from the Jets' practice squad to their active roster frequently over the past two seasons. He could potentially see a relatively healthy workload Sunday against the Browns, due to the injuries to Josh Martin and Dylan Donahue.

Jeremy Langford
News
The Jets signed Langford to a reserve/future contract Wednesday.

Langford tried to revive his career with the Ravens this past summer but didn't survive final roster cuts and was ultimately stashed on the team's practice squad, only for him to suffer an undisclosed injury and land on injured reserve in late September. Now with the Jets, Langford could have a hard time carving out a role in a backfield that already has Bilal Powell, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire under contract for the 2018 season.

Rontez Miles
News
The Saints have left Miles (hamstring) off their final injury report heading into Sunday's game versus the Saints.

After logging a full practice Friday, Miles appears to be on track to resume his role providing depth at safety in Week 15. Terrence Brooks would be next in line for extended time should Miles ultimately suffer any setbacks in the contest.

Derrick Jones
News
The Jets selected Jones in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 204th overall.

Jones (6-foot-2, 189 pounds) is a lanky corner who is just an upside lottery ticket for the Jets at this point in the draft. At the Mississippi pro day he ran a 4.48-second 40 along with a 41-inch vertical and a remarkable 140-inch broad jump.

Ben Ijalana
News
Ijalana will become a free agent after the Jets declined to exercise his team option for the 2018 season, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Ijalana, who was among Pro Football Focus' worst-graded tackles in 2016, appeared in just three games for the Jets this past season. New York cleared $4.6 million in cap space by letting him walk.

Wesley Johnson
News
Johnson (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Johnson was originally considered questionable to play after nursing a hip injury in practice this week. Now cleared to play, he should be ready to operate in his usual starting role.

James Carpenter
No Updates
Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin (back) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

Mauldin could return to the Jets' active roster later this season if his back injury subsides, but the earliest he could take the field for game-action would be Week 8. The linebacker missed almost all of the preseason after injuring his back during the Jets' opening week scrimmage. Mauldin has been a key cog in the Jets defense for the past two seasons, recording 33 tackles and 6.5 sacks over a span of 26 games. To replace the third-year pro, the Jets brought in veteran Bruce Carter, whom they originally waived Sunday.

Joel Stave
News
The Jets signed Stave to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Stave has spent time with the Vikings and Redskins since going undrafted out of Wisconsin in 2016 but is yet to appear in a professional game. With Josh McCown (hand) set for unrestricted free agency, Stave initially slots in as the Jets' third quarterback behind Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

Devin Smith
News
Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Smith was waived with an injury designation last week and after going unclaimed, was placed on the Jets injured reserve list. It marks Smith's second ACL tear in three seasons, putting his NFL career into serious question.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Steve McLendon
News
The Jets picked up McLendon's $3.13 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

McLendon enters the third and final year of the deal he signed with the Jets in free agency in March 2016 coming off the best season of his career. Though he saw his sack total drop from 3.5 the year prior down to 1.5, the nose tackle was more effective than ever at stuffing the run game. He finished with 46 tackles in 16 games, exceeding his total (42) from the 2015 and 2016 campaigns combined. The 32-year-old should fill a starting role once again during the upcoming campaign.

Brian Winters
News
Winters (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Winters suffered an undisclosed abdomen injury in Week 2 and played through the pain all season before missing last Sunday's game against the Chargers. The Jets signed defensive lineman Deon Simon to fill his place on the roster.

Injury
Abdomen - Questionable for the start of training camp
Terrell Sinkfield
News
Sinkfield signed with the Vikings on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Sinkfield spent the 2016 offseason with the Vikings as a wideout, but will join the team as a cornerback this time around. The Northern Iowa product has been impressive in the Canadian Football league over the last three years, recording 102 catches for 1,537 yards and 10 touchdowns over that time frame. Sinkfield may require some time to adjust to playing cornerback, so keep an eye on his progress in order to determine where he will end up on the Vikings' defensive depth chart come roster cuts.

Daniel Williams
News
The Jets signed Williams to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Williams signed with the Jets last spring after going undrafted out of Jackson State, but sustained a concussion in training camp and didn't survive final roster cuts. Now back to full health, Williams will look to earn a spot on the bottom of a largely unsettled depth chart at wide receiver.

Chad Hansen
News
Hansen caught nine of 17 targets for 94 yards during the 2017 season.

Hansen and fellow rookie wideout ArDarius Stewart had very disappointing rookie seasons despite being selected in the third and fourth rounds of last year's draft, respectively. There will surely be higher expectations in 2018, though it's tough to see Hansen fully breaking out after his rookie struggles. The Jets could bring in some veteran wideouts this offseason, though the biggest question will be who's under center.

Buster Skrine
News
Skrine (concussion) will play Thursday against the Bills.

Skrine practiced in full Wednesday and presumably has cleared concussion protocol. His return is an opportunistic development for a Jets secondary that could be without top corner Morris Claiborne (foot).
