Position Listing
Darryl Roberts
Roberts suffered a hamstring injury Sunday against the Jaguars and is doubtful to return, Rich Cimini of 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.

Terrelle Pryor
Pryor hauled in one of three targets for 25 yards in Thursday's 21-17 loss to the Browns.

Pryor couldn't get much going on what was a brutal night for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, who completed just 15 of 31 passes for 169 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. On the bright side, Pryor actually played more offensive snaps (44) than Robby Anderson (42), though both guys trailed Quincy Enunwa (53). While Anderson's brief exit due to a nose injury is likely the reason for Pryor getting more snaps than him, Anderson did lose a fumble for the second consecutive contest and could start to cede more work to Pryor if he doesn't pick things up.

Kevin Pierre-Louis
Pierre-Louis was given a one-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Pierre-Louis was arrested for marijuana possession in January, which is where the suspension originates from. The 26-year-old will likely serve as a special-teams player and rotational inside linebacker for the Jets after setting a career high with 41 total tackles with Kansas City last season.

Rashard Robinson
Robinson was suspended Wednesday for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the league's policy on substances of abuse, Rich Cimini of reports.

Robinson was arrested last December on chargers of marijuana possession. The suspension could put him on thin ice with the team, as Robinson wasn't previously considered a lock to make the Jets' final roster.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. Denver
De'Angelo Sr. Henderson
Henderson signed a contract to join the Jets' practice squad, Troy Renck of Denver 7 Newsreports.

Henderson didn't make the cut in Denver given the emergence of undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay, but he'll now get a fresh start with a Jets organization in need of playmakers at the running back position.

Juston Burris
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.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 3 at Cleveland
Anthony Wint
No Updates
Trenton Cannon
Cannon rushed six times for 15 yards and caught his only target for six more in Monday's 48-17, Week 1 win over Detroit.

The game's lopsided nature allowed New York to work Cannon into the mix, but Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell dominated touches out of the backfield while the result was still hanging in the balance. Cannon showed no signs of the ball-security issues that bothered him in the preseason, which bodes well for the speedster's chances of expanding his change-of-pace role as the season unfolds.

Jordan Jenkins
Jenkins (shoulder) took part in Friday's practice session, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Jenkins didn't take part in team drills this spring due to a shoulder injury, but the extended rest during the summer looks to have facilitated his recovery. A report in early June suggested the issue could force him out of portions of training camp, a notion that's now been disproven. His return to practice Friday is certainly a good sign, suggesting he should be fine when the regular season starts up in September.

Josh McCown
McCown will open the season as Sam Darnold's backup.

This was pretty much assumed since the Jets traded Teddy Bridgewater to the Saints, but the assignment was confirmed Monday, when the Jets officially declared Darnold their starting QB to begin the coming season.

Charone Peake
Peake is questionable to return to Thursday's game due to a hamstring injury.

Peake is situated at the bottom of the Jets wide receiver depth chart, so if he does not return, it should not affect the passing offense in a significant manner.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 at Jacksonville
Ben Braden
No Updates
Avery Williamson
Williamson racked up 14 tackles (seven solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's 21-17 loss to the Browns.

Williamson was a monster in this one, constantly meeting running plays at the point of attack and wreaking havoc in the backfield when asked to in passing situations. He averaged 94 tackles per year in four seasons with the Titans prior to signing with the Jets this offseason, and the 26-year-old linebacker's on a 112-tackle pace through three contests with his new club.

Trumaine Johnson
Johnson returned to Thursday's contest after being evaluated for a concussion, Rich Cimini of reports.

Johnson will return to a starting role, with Darryl Roberts retaking his place as Johnson's backup.

Lac Edwards
No Updates
Darron Lee
Lee posted two interceptions and seven tackles (six solo) in Monday's win over the Lions.

Lee managed to return one of his two interceptions Monday for a touchdown, giving the Jets their first defensive score since 2013. He was the star performer on a Jets defense that was dominant on Monday night, and while this level of production is obviously not sustainable, Lee is off to a great start to his third NFL season after recording the first two picks of his career.

Jason Myers
Myers connected on a 28-yard field goal and both of his PAT attempts in Thursday's 21-17 loss to Cleveland.

Myers wasn't asked to do much, as the Jets raced out to a 14-0 lead and mustered just one field goal the rest of the way. Things don't project to get any easier for this offense with a trip to Jacksonville next on the docket.

Quinton Patton
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.

Foot - Questionable for Week 4 at Jacksonville
Sam Darnold
Darnold completed 15 of 31 passes for 169 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 21-17 loss to the Browns.

Darnold faced consistent pressure from an aggressive Browns front, but he also extinguished any hopes of a victory when his pass attempt to Robby Anderson was intercepted at the Cleveland 34-yard line with 15 seconds remaining. The rookie had short-circuited the previous possession with a pick as well, as Joe Schobert snagged a throw intended for Jermaine Kearse at the Jets' 43 with 1:27 left. Darnold did show encouraging rapport with Quincy Enunwa and Kearse in particular, and he was able to avoid a blanking for Terrelle Pryor by connecting with him for 25 yards to open the final series. The 2018 first-round pick will try to bounce back from his pair of costly miscues against the Jaguars in Week 4.

Kelvin Beachum
Beachum (foot) returned to practice Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Beachum's foot issue appears to be mostly behind him after he was in a walking boot earlier in camp, though he did not take part in team drills Saturday. The veteran started all 16 games for the Jets last season and figures to slot in as the team's starting left tackle again in 2018 when healthy.

Davis Webb
Webb was waived by the Giants on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Webb was a third-round draft pick just one year ago, but he wasn't taken by the current regime in New York. The Giants will open the season with Alex Tanney and fourth-round rookie Kyle Lauletta behind Eli Manning.

Jordan Leggett
Leggett failed to catch his lone target in Thursday's 21-17 loss to the Browns.

Leggett has all the opportunity he could dream of with Neal Sterling (concussion) sidelined and rookie Chris Herndon floundering, yet the 2017 fifth-rounder is barely earning himself playing time. In this game, Leggett played just 19 of a possible 63 offensive snaps. Until he starts to see the field more, it's hard to expect meaningful contributions.

Brandon Copeland
Copeland did not receive a contract tender from the Lions, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Copeland, who spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve, will thus become an unrestricted free agent. Before going down with a torn pectoral muscle in the preseason, he was in competition for the starting job at strong-side linebacker while also taking reps at defensive end. Fortunately, the Penn product was recently cleared to return to football activities and should be able to participate in offseason workouts with whichever team he may ultimately sign with.

Jonotthan Harrison
Harrison re-signed Wednesday with the Jets on a one-year deal, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Harrison was a depth lineman for the Jets in 2017, but was able to get plenty of offensive reps over the final two weeks of the season. His return gives the Jets a solid backup offensive tackle who also can also contribute on special teams.

Chris Herndon
Herndon caught both of his targets for minus-one yard in Thursday's 21-17 loss to the Browns.

Herndon's 34 snaps on 63 offensive plays led Jets tight ends with Neal Sterling (concussion) sidelined, but quarterback Sam Darnold didn't give his fellow rookie any looks downfield after Herndon committed an egregious drop on a deep pass last week. Until Sterling comes back, it doesn't look like New York is going to get anything meaningful out of the TE position.

Jermaine Kearse
Kearse brought in three of six targets for 35 yards in the Jets' 21-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday.

The veteran wideout checked in second behind Quincy Enunwa in both receptions and targets on the Jets, building on a forgettable season debut Week 2, during which he lost a yard on his only catch. Kearse's opportunities seemed to come somewhat at the expense of Terrelle Pryor on Thursday, but the New York passing game distribution outside of Enunwa seems like a week-to-week, fluid situation at present. Kearse will look to improve on Thursday's modest effort in a tough matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.

Robby Anderson
Anderson (nose) returned to Thursday's contest against the Browns, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Anderson injured his nose after fumbling earlier in the game, but appears to be okay. The 6-3 wideout caught his second pass of the game for five yards after returning to the field.

Nathan Shepherd
No Updates
Jamal Adams
Adams recorded seven tackles (four solo), including a sack, and forced a fumble in Sunday's 20-12 loss to Miami.

Through the first two weeks, Adams has showcased the talent that made him a top-10 pick in 2017. Though the team didn't pull out the win Sunday, Adams had a quality individual performance. He'll look to continue stacking up successful efforts when the Jets head to Cleveland in Week 3.

Foley Fatukasi
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 3 at Cleveland
No Updates
Brandon Shell
Shell (concussion) played 23 offensive snaps during Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins.

Shell missed the 2017 regular-season finale due to a concussion, but he appears to be healthy as the 2018 regular season approaches. He's slated to serve as the team's starting right tackle again this season after starting 12 games in 2017.

Quincy Enunwa
Enunwa brought in four of eight targets for 57 yards in the Jets' 21-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday.

Enunwa once again paced the team in receptions and targets, and he's now logged 29 looks through three games in his return from the neck injury that cost him all of 2017. The 26-year-old has shown excellent rapport with rookie Sam Darnold thus far, serving as a security blanket for him in the short- and mid-range passing attack. Given New York's conservative approach on offense thus far and Enunwa's reliable hands and route running, he appears to have the safest fantasy floor in Gang Green's passing attack for the moment. He'll look to continue producing versus the Jaguars in Week 4.

Thomas Hennessy
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.

J.J. Wilcox
Wilcox backed out of a deal with the 49ers and is expected to ink a deal with the Jets instead, Rich Cimini of reports.

Despite agreeing to terms on a one-year contract with the 49ers, Wilcox backed out for unclear reasons. Cimini had sources report that it was either stage fright or a desire to play for Jets head coach Todd Bowles. Either way, Wilcox should be in green and white come Week 1. Bowles has expressed that all 22 starting positions are up for grabs, but Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye both manned the two safety roles as rookies in 2017 and will be looking to make major strides in their development this offseason. This will make it tough for Wilcox to earn a starting job. The 27-year-old slotted into a limited role with the Steelers last season and was held to 12 tackles in 12 games, so he projects as a rotational safety in 2018.

Leonard Williams
The Jets are expected to exercise Williams' fifth-year team option before the May 3 deadline, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Williams, now entering his fourth season, hasn't produced to the degree some expected of the 2015 first-round pick. However, Williams' meager sack total -- he has only 12 in 48 career games -- isn't entirely reflective of his pass-rushing impact; Williams has recorded 65 quarterback hits to date, including 25 in 2017, when he played through a preseason wrist injury. The Jets' decision to pick up his team option for 2019 is thus not surprising, especially since Williams' salary for that fifth year won't become guaranteed until the start of the new league year next spring.

Jeremy Clark
Clark is doubtful to return to Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins after suffering a hamstring injury.

Clark is fighting for a depth secondary and special teams role with the Jets, and he'll be looking to return as soon as possible to earn a spot. Look for Terrell Sinkfield and Derrick Jones to pick up some extra snaps while Clark is sidelined.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 at Jacksonville
Mike Pennel
Pennel signed a three-year deal with the Jets on Friday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Pennel was used in a depth role during the 2017 season, and he'll likely maintain the same role for the time being. Even with limited reps, though, Pennel posted 35 tackles (20 solo) and didn't miss a game last season.

Bronson Kaufusi
Kaufusi (ankle) is eager to make his NFL debut after being sidelined for his rookie season.

Kaufusi is reportedly back to full health after breaking his ankle prior to the 2016 season. The third-round pick is expected to compete for a starting job on the Ravens' defense. He figures to compete with Brent Urban and rookie Chris Wormley for a starting defensive end role. Even if he does not get the starting nod, the BYU product will presumably see playing time in a rotational role regardless. Barring any setbacks, he should enter training camp healthy and hungry.

Terrence Brooks
Brooks agreed Wednesday with the Jets on a two-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Brooks arrived in the Big Apple last August via trade from Philadelphia, finishing his first season with the Jets with 13 tackles in 15 games. With a new two-year deal in place, Brooks will likely reprise his role as a depth cornerback and special-teams contributor during the upcoming campaign.

Neville Hewitt
Hewitt (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Hewitt's ability to practice in limited fashion Thursday is a good sign, given that he was a non-participant earlier this week. It remains to be seen whether the former Dolphin will be healthy enough to suit up against Miami on Sunday, but Hewitt stands to receive some rotational defensive snaps if he does play.

Eric Tomlinson
Tomlinson caught one of two targets for 14 yards in Thursday's 21-17 loss to Cleveland.

New York operated without No. 1 tight end Neal Sterling (concussion), but Tomlinson's role didn't change much, as the blocking specialist played 24 of a possible 63 snaps on offense. If he's not stepping up given the Jets' barren depth chart at his position right now, it's safe to say Tomlinson will never be a valuable fantasy commodity.

Marcus Maye
Maye (foot) is officially inactive for Thursday's game against the Browns.

Maye's lack of availability against Cleveland is no surprise, given the short week of preparation. Expect Doug Middleton to step in as the Jets' starting free safety.

Foot - Inactive for Week 3 at Cleveland
Bilal Powell
Powell rushed 14 times for 73 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Jets' 21-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday.

Powell was considerably more effective on a per-carry basis than backfield mate Isaiah Crowell, who rushed 16 times for just 34 yards but found the end zone twice. Powell has surprisingly been a bit player in the passing game in two of the Jets' first three contests, but he's more than made up for it by rushing 26 times for 133 yards in that pair of outings. The division of labor in the Jets backfield appears to be relatively fluid at present, but Powell seems set to be an integral part of the offense under any scenario. He'll look to continue the strong start to his season against the Jaguars in a Week 4 battle.

Elijah McGuire
The Jets placed McGuire (foot) on injured reserve Monday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic New York reports.

As a survivor of roster cuts this weekend, McGuire will be eligible for activation from IR in 2018. However, he must sit out the first eight weeks of the season as he recovers from a broken foot. His first opportunity to suit up will be Sunday, Nov. 4 against the Dolphins, assuming his rehab goes without a hitch. Until then, the Jets will entrust Isaiah Crowell (undisclosed), Bilal Powell and rookie Trenton Cannon with backfield duties.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Isaiah Crowell
Crowell rushed 16 times for 34 yards and two touchdowns and brought in two of three targets for 17 yards in the Jets' 21-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday.

Crowell was once again significantly outperformed by backfield mate Bilal Powell on a yards-per-carry basis, but he was able to get into the end zone twice in the first half against his old squad to give the Jets an early 14-0 advantage. The 25-year-old has now averaged under 3.0 yards per carry in consecutive contests, but he's also compiled four rushing touchdowns overall in the first three games of the season. However, it's telling that Powell now has just two fewer carries overall in the last two games and has been significantly more efficient with his opportunities, a trend that could eventually affect Crowell's opportunities if it persists. Crowell will look to up his yardage totals against the tough Jaguars defense in a Week 4 matchup.

Dieugot Joseph
Joseph was released Tuesday by the Ravens.

Joseph was inactive for a couple of weeks due to personal reasons after he was signed to the active roster in mid-September. He was expected to serve as a depth option on the offensive line when healthy.

Doug Middleton
Middleton (finger) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Middleton played all 70 defensive snaps in Week 1 against the Lions while Marcus Maye (foot) sat out. Maye is listed as doubtful for Week 2, which makes Middleton's availability even more important. Despite the designation, the 24-year-old was a full participant in Friday's practice. If he can't go, however, expect the Jets to move Terrence Brooks to starting free safety opposite Jamal Adams.

Josh Martin
Martin (concussion) won't play in Thursday's matchup with the Browns, Rich Cimini of reports.

Martin is set to miss his third-straight game since suffering a concussion in the Jets' preseason finale, as the linebacker has yet to pass the league's concussion protocol. Jeremiah Attaochu and Frankie Luvu will continue to see heavier workloads while Martin works his way back.

Concussion - Inactive for Week 3 at Cleveland
Neal Sterling
Sterling (concussion) won't play in Thursday's game against the Browns, Rich Cimini of reports.

Sterling suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to Miami and has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol. Eric Tomlinson and rookie Chris Herndon are both expected to see an increase in snaps in replace of Sterling.

Concussion - Inactive for Week 3 at Cleveland
Henry Anderson
Anderson was traded to the Jets on Saturday, Stephen Holder of reports.

The Colts opted to part ways with Anderson in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick. Anderson figures to provide added depth at the defensive end position for New York. The Jets have said goodbye to the likes of Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Kony Ealy within the calendar year. While Anderson isn't expected to contribute at an All-Pro level, the Jets hope he'll be able to pick up some of the slack left behind from key departures.

Parry Nickerson
No Updates
Morris Claiborne
Claiborne (hand) took the field for 23 snaps and made one tackle during Thursday's preseason contest against the Redskins.

Claiborne was expected to sport a hand brace for 6-to-8 weeks after undergoing surgery on his left wrist during the offseason. Now healthy, he is expected to resume his role as a starting cornerback, coming off of a 43-tackle (34 solo) season in 2017.

Rontez Miles
Miles signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Miles has served primarily as a special teamer during his tenure in New York. In all likelihood, Miles should reassume his role as leader of that units in 2018. With safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye leading the back end of the secondary, Miles would only see time there if an injury or two were to present itself.

Knee - Meniscus - Physically Unable to Perform
Derrick Jones
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.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 3 at Cleveland
Ben Ijalana
Ijalana (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Ijalana recently sustained an unspecified shoulder injury during one of the Jets' recent joint practices with the Redskins. His placement on IR more than likely means his 2018 season is over before it began. New York signed fellow veteran Gino Gradkowski to take Ijalana's place on the active roster.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Nico Falah
No Updates
Deontay Burnett
Burnett was released by the Titans on Saturday, Terry McCormick of reports.

The undrafted rookie out of USC built up some hype during training camp and then caught 11 passes for 93 yards in the preseason. It wasn't quite enough to win a spot on the 53-man roster, but Burnett is a strong bet to resurface on the practice squad within the next few days.

James Carpenter
No Updates
Spencer Long
Long (quadriceps) is expected to be a full go for training camp in late July, Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media reports.

Long's season ended with surgery on his quad last November, but he's been making steady progress in rehab and shouldn't be held back by the injury. He's been a limited participant in OTAs and is on schedule with his recovery. Look for Long to hold down the starting role at center when he's back in action.

Frankie Luvu
No Updates
Jeremiah Attaochu
Attaochu signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

The former 2014 second-round pick spent the offseason with the 49ers but failed to make the 53-man roster. Injuries have limited Attaochu's opportunities but if he can remain healthy he could carve out a edge rushing role with the Jets.

Brandon Bryant
No Updates
Andre Roberts
Roberts survived the final round of cuts and will serve as New York's primary return man on kicks and punts this season.

Roberts occupied the same role for the Falcons last year, finishing with just one catch on the year. While not among the league's most explosive return men, Roberts is a steady presence who won't muff many catches.

Steve McLendon
McLendon (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, Rich Cimini of reports.

McLendon is on track to be the Jets' starting nose tackle in 2018, so the 32-year-old's preseason snap count isn't essential. He played all 16 games in 2017, recording 46 tackles (30 solo) and 1.5 sacks.

Brian Winters
Winters (abdomen) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Winters worked in team drills, but it'll be more telling if he plays Friday's preseason game against the Giants. The 27-year-old is slated to be the Jets' starting right guard in Week 1.

Buster Skrine
Skrine injured his knee during Thursday's game against the Browns and is questionable to return.

Skrine racked up one tackle and half a sack before exiting. Parry Nickeson is slated to see some extra work at slot cornerback as long as Skrine is out.

Knee - Questionable for Week 4 at Jacksonville
