Position Listing
Darryl Roberts
News
Roberts (shoulder) was a full participant at practice on Thursday.

Roberts was forced to leave Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh after injuring his shoulder. His return to practice is a positive sign and he should be expected to play in the Jets' Week 6 matchup with Houston.

Matt Forte
News
Forte gained 53 yards on nine carries and 38 yards on four receptions (four targets) in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders.

Forte was far more productive than Bilal Powell, who had six carries for 13 yards and zero catches on two targets. Elijah McGuire also got involved with six carries for 29 yards and a catch for seven yards, getting most of his work while Oakland was only leading by one or two scores. It was actually Forte who thrived in garbage time, with 52 of his 91 yards coming on one fourth-quarter drive. The Jets figure to stick with a three-man backfield committee Week 3 against Miami.

Bruce Carter
News
Carter (ankle) was a full participant at the Jets' practice Wednesday.

Carter sustained the ankle injury in the season opener against the Bills and was inactive in Week 2. With his health now intact, the 29-year-old will likely reprise his role as a reserve inside linebacker and special teams contributor Sunday against the Dolphins.

Juston Burris
News
Burris (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Burris was unable to practice earlier in the week, but will be good to go Sunday and is slated to provide depth at cornerback per usual.

Xavier Coleman
News
Coleman (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Coleman sustained an undisclosed injury back during the Jets' annual Green and White scrimmage. The good news is that Coleman will have a shot to earn a spot on the 53-man roster now that he's healthy, The not so good news is that his chances are still pretty slim.

Will Tye
News
Tye caught one of three targets four four yards in Sunday's 45-20 loss to Oakland.

With the Jets' tight end room in shambles, Tye saw the field for 42 of the Jets' 56 offensive plays on Sunday. The quality of the Jets' offense is surely a factor, but Tye never really established himself with the Giants either. His starting time is likely short-lived as Austin Seferian-Jenkins is due back this week.

Demario Davis
News
Davis had a game-high 14 tackles, including a half-sack, during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

The Jets really struggled to contain the Bills' rushing attack at the line of scrimmage, which gave Davis plenty of tackle opportunities. It's a situation that could certain repeat itself often this season, with Davis having solid tackle upside for IDP leagues.

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
McCown completed 17 of 25 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns and added 31 yards on four carries in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders.

The Jets stayed within striking distance until early in the fourth quarter when Jalen Richard ripped off a 58-yard touchdown run and McCown lost a fumble on the ensuing snap. The 38-year-old quarterback otherwise turned in a competent performance, albeit with 57 passing yards and one of the two touchdowns coming on a lengthy garbage-time drive. The Jets opted for a balanced offensive approach while trying to keep pace with the Raiders, after attempting 39 passes and only 15 rushes in a 21-12 loss to Buffalo the previous week. McCown should see a bit more volume Week 3 against Miami in the Jets' first home game of the year. He's at least doing enough to keep the starting job for a few more weeks.

Charone Peake
News
Peake made it through Saturday's roster cutdowns, John Healy of the NY Daily News reports.

Peake entered training camp with a shot to earn a starting role but seemed to fall out of favor as the preseason progressed. The recent acquisition of Jermaine Kearse pushes the 2016 seventh-round pick further down the depth chart, likely leaving him as the No. 4 or 5 wideout entering Week 1.

Ben Braden
No Updates
Anthony Johnson
News
Johnson (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve Monday.

Johnson was waived with an undisclosed injury Sunday and reverts to IR after clearing waivers.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
JoJo Natson
News
Natson had two receptions for 56 yards, including a 51-yard reception, and a 31-yard punt return in Thursday's preseason win over the Bengals.

Natson had an impressive preseason and could make the final roster as a kickoff or punt returner, as well as a reserve receiver. The Colts will likely decide between Natson and Quan Bray for the return jobs.

Christian Hackenberg
News
Hackenberg (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday for the Jets' Week 2 game against the Raiders, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Hackenberg served as the backup to starter Josh McCown in the season-opening loss to the Bills while Bryce Petty was getting over a strained knee, but now that Petty has had some time to heal up, Hackenberg looks like he'll be the Jets' No. 3 quarterback for the foreseeable future. That likely means that Hackenberg will be a fixture on the inactive list throughout the season, unless an injury affects the status of either McCown or Petty.

Chandler Catanzaro
News
Catanzaro made both his field-goal attempts during Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Catanzaro continued his hot start to the year Sunday. Although the Jets don't figure to put up a lot of points this season, Catanzaro seems like a reliable three points once the team gets him in position.

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
Jets coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that Seferian-Jenkins needs to get in better shape in order to be made active for Sunday's game against Miami, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Bowles apparently wasn't thrilled with how Seferian-Jenkins looked at Wednesday's practice after the tight end was away from the team for two weeks while serving a suspension. Regardless, it'll be a major surprise if Seferian-Jenkins isn't active Sunday, considering three of the team's other tight ends are recovering from injuries. Repeatedly mentioned as a standout throughout the offseason and training camp, Seferian-Jenkins could initially be eased into action with a limited workload, but he's still a clear favorite to emerge as the Jets' top tight end. Given the lack of the talent throughout the rest of the offense, he could eventually serve as Josh McCown's go-to option.

Lac Edwards
No Updates
Darron Lee
News
Lee had 10 tackles, including one sack, during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

The Jets struggled stopping the Bills' rushing attack at the goal line, which opened up plenty of tackle opportunities for Lee and Demario Davis, who finished with 14 tackles of his own. With the situation likely to repeat itself often this season, Lee could be a solid source of tackles in IDP leagues.

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 Week 3 vs. Miami
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) did not participate at the Jet's practice Wednesday.

Leggett has not practiced yet in the regular season, so it's hard to have any real expectations on when he could return. The rookie fifth-round pick missed a valuable opportunity now that Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been reinstated from his two-game suspension.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
Edmond Robinson
News
Robinson (groin) reverted to injured reserve Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Robinson is likely stuck on IR all season, barring an injury settlement.

Injury
Groin - Injured Reserve
Jonotthan Harrison
News
Harrison (concussion) was a full participant at the Jets' practice Thursday.

Harrison suffered a concussion in practice last week and was inactive for Week 2, but should be medically cleared to play against the Dolphins on Sunday if he doesn't exhibit any concussion symptoms following Thursday's practice. The 26-year-old should return to his role as backup center to Wesley Johnson if he is able to suit up.

Damore'ea Stringfellow
News
Stringfellow was signed to the Jets' practice squad on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Stringfellow was cut by the Jets on Tuesday but will now rejoin the team as a member of the practice squad. With an unproven receiving corps in New York, Stringfellow could get an opportunity to be promoted to the active roster at some point this season.

Jermaine Kearse
News
Kearse caught four of five targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders.

Kearse scored from 34 and 11 yards out while leading the Jets in catches, targets and receiving yards for the second time in as two games. Robby Anderson is getting a similar workload in terms of both snaps and targets, but he's managed just six catches for 50 yards on 12 targets, while Kearse has produced 11 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns on 14 opportunities. Kearse won't be able to maintain that kind of efficiency while playing in such a poor offense, but his strong work in the early going should at least encourage Josh McCown to keep throwing to the former Seahawk in a Week 3 matchup with the Dolphins.

Robby Anderson
News
The Jets listed Anderson (knee) as a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

It appeared that Anderson could be listed as a non-participant in practice for the second straight day after he was spotted working out with a team trainer on a side field at the beginning of Thursday's session, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, but the wideout evidently took part in at least some team drills. Anderson's involvement during Friday's practice will be more telling regarding his status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but at this point, his availability looks like a major question mark. If cleared to play Sunday, Anderson would likely start as he has in the Jets' first two contests, but he'll be hard pressed to offer fantasy owners useful production while Josh McCown is behind center.

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
Jamal Adams
News
Adams (ankle) played 32 defensive snaps during the Jets' third preseason game.

Adams, the team's prized offseason acquisition through this year's draft, has been slowly taking on a bigger role with the defense. Those close to the team say Adams is a natural-born leader and should become the face of the defense at some point this season. Whether Adams acquires fantasy relevance remains to be seen, but given his playmaking ability, he's definitely someone to keep an eye on in deep leagues.

Kony Ealy
News
Ealy was claimed by the Jets on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Ealy's release from New England was surprising considering the success he's had early in his career. It seems like there were a fair amount of suitors interested in Ealy's services, but the Jets were able to snag the 25-year-old thanks to the team's high priority on the waiver wire. Ealy will slide into a strong defensive front and perhaps be stuck behind the likes of Muhammad Wilkerson, Leonard Williams and Sheldon Richardson for the time being.

Deon Simon
News
Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) did not travel with the team to London, where the team plays the Dolphins on Sunday.

With the Jets having waived nose tackle Deon Simon after practice Wednesday, we'd expect the team to add tight end depth to the roster in advance of the game.

ArDarius Stewart
News
Stewart caught two of five targets for 10 yards during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Stewart technically got the start, though that didn't guarantee him significant targets, as four other players had as many or more and six players had more receiving yards. Stewart may have decent games here and there, but the Jets' passing game isn't good enough to make him a consistently viable option.

Brandon Shell
No Updates
Quincy Enunwa
News
The Jets officially placed Enunwa (neck) on injured reserve Friday, Connor Hughes of The Star-Ledger reports.

Enunwa suffered a non-contact injury during the Jets' green-and-white scrimmage in early August, which was eventually revealed to be a bulging disk. After a procedure to repair the issue, he was in line for a 6-to-9-month recovery, effectively ruling him out for the season. Now that he's officially on IR, the receiving corps will be in the hands of Robby Anderson and newcomer Jermaine Kearse at the outset of the season.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
Thomas Hennessy
No Updates
Leonard Williams
News
Williams (wrist) a limited participant at the Jets' practice Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Williams sprained his wrist late in the preseason and was a full participant at practice late last week, but he is apparently still experiencing some soreness. The fact that this injury is still lingering is worthy of concern, but there is no indication at this point that the 23-year-old is expected to miss anything more than practice reps.

Injury
Wrist - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
Bryce Petty
News
Jets coach Todd Bowles said Petty will serve as the team's No. 2 quarterback for the foreseeable future, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Despite thoroughly outplaying Christian Hackenberg during the preseason, Petty was inactive for a Week 1 loss to the Bills. He then took over as the top backup for Sunday's loss to the Raiders and is now expected to hold the role indefinitely. It means the Jets likely will turn to Petty instead of Hackenberg if/when Josh McCown is benched.

Jeremy Clark
News
Clark (undisclosed) was moved to the reserve/Non-Football Injury list Friday, Connor Hughes of the Star Ledger reports.

Clark will be eligible to practice between Week 6 and Week 8. If he isn't activated within three weeks of his return, he'll then revert to injured reserve.

Injury
Undisclosed - Out for Week 3 vs. Miami
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 is dealing with a shoulder bruise and didn't practice Wednesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Wilkerson suffered the injury at some point during Sunday's loss to the Raiders, but finished the game and played 48 of 57 defensive snaps. It's unclear at this point if the 27-year-old's status for Week 3 is in serious danger, but that should become clearer following practices Thursday and Friday.

Injury
Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
Dylan Donahue
No Updates
Terrence Brooks
News
Brooks was traded to the Jets on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Jets parted ways with Dexter McDougle with the hopes that Brooks can add value as a depth safety. The 25-year-old will likely fill in behind the rookie tandem of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye.

Eric Tomlinson
News
Tomlinson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

Tomlinson hasn't practiced since sustaining the injury in the season opener against the Bills. Jordan Leggett (knee) also failed practice Wednesday, and if both remain out in Week 3 against the Dolphins, Will Tye and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is back from suspension, will likely share the snaps at tight end.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
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.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Marcus Maye
News
The Jets selected Maye in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 39th overall.

Maye was a standout performer in a dominant Florida defense, and at the Florida pro day he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds while showing sound agility numbers. It's a strange pick after the Jets took safety Jamal Adams in the first round.

Bilal Powell
News
Powell had six carries for 13 yards and zero catches on two targets in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders

In addition to being outplayed by Matt Forte, the 28-year-old Powell ceded some work to sixth-round rookie Elijah McGuire, who picked up 36 yards on seven touches. Given their low likelihood of competing, the Jets have no good reason to remove McGuire from the offense. Powell thus seems to find himself as one part of a three-man committee in arguably the NFL's worst attack. It's not a role conducive to fantasy production as the Jets prepare for their home opener Week 3 against Miami.

Elijah McGuire
News
McGuire had six carries for 29 yards and one catch for seven yards (two targets) in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders.

McGuire's long gain of 11 yards came on the final snap of the game, but he got the rest of his touches in the second and third quarters while the Jets were only trailing by one or two scores. After logging zero offensive snaps Week 1, he likely did enough in Sunday's game to maintain some kind of role in the Jets' committee backfield. The rookie sixth-round pick figures to get at least a few touches Week 3 against Miami, with the potential to take on a larger workload as the Jets' rebuilding campaign progresses.

Bryson Keeton
News
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 - Injured Reserve
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.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Doug Middleton
Injury
Josh Martin
News
Martin re-signed with the Jets on Thursday.

The 25-year-old special teams ace will return to the Jets in 2017 after one of his best professional seasons to date. He logged 14 tackles on special teams and also chipped in 0.5 sacks. He'll likely remain in a special teams-heavy role given the Jets' depth at linebacker.

Neal Sterling
News
Sterling (knee) did not participate in the Jets' practice Wednesday.

Sterling was signed in early September after being waived by the Jaguars to help bolster the Jets' depleted tight ends. Austin Seferian-Jenkins has now returned from suspension, but the only other healthy tight end on the roster is Will Tye.

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
Marcus Murphy
News
Murphy signed with the Jets' practice squad on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Murphy was waived by the Jets during roster cuts but will now get the opportunity to remain with the team as a member of the practice squad. The Jets can promote the third-year pro to the active roster at any point this season.

Morris Claiborne
News
Claiborne (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Connor Hughes of The Star-Ledger reports.

Claiborne was limited in the Jets' first practice of the week Wednesday, but his full participation a day later puts him on track to suit up in the Week 2 matchup with the Raiders. It's expected that Claiborne will shadow Amari Cooper in that matchup, which should provide more of a challenge than the Bills' Jordan Matthews-led receiving corps offered in the season opener. Claiborne logged three tackles and played 75 snaps in Week 1.

Jalin Marshall
News
Marshall (suspension) struggled in Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, dropping a pass and drawing a holding penalty, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

Listed as a starer on the unofficial preseason depth chart, Marshall did have a 15-yard gain with Josh McCown under center on the opening drive, making up for his penalty earlier in the series. The second-year wideout's other target came at the beginning of the second quarter with Christian Hackenberg directing the offense. If not for his upcoming four-game suspension, Marshall would be on track to start the season in the No. 2 or 3 receiver role. He should still be involved once he's available, but his lengthy absence will give the likes of Ardarius Stewart and Charone Peake a chance to prove they're deserving of higher slots on the depth chart. Robby Anderson is the only wideout locked in as a starter.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Cleveland
Lawrence Thomas
News
Thomas was promoted to the Jets' active roster Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Lawrence landed on the team's practice squad after failing to make it through final cuts. However, the team appears to be looking to add depth on the defensive line, so Thomas will get an opportunity to fill the role.

Rontez Miles
News
Miles (eye) will not play in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger reports.

Miles will now officially miss the first two games to open up the regular season due to an orbital fracture. Terrence Brooks will continue to operate as the only reserve safety for New York's defense.

Injury
Eye - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Miami
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.

Jeremy Kerley
News
Kerley played 79 percent of the offensive snaps in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Serving as the Jets' primary slot receiver after being held out the previous week, Kerley caught each of his three targets for only 14 yards. He should be a bit busier in future weeks if he keeps the role, but it seems outside receivers Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson are Josh McCown's favorite targets.

Ben Ijalana
News
Ijalana (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Ijalana underwent a minor knee scope in June and hadn't practiced since. Now healthy, he'll likely continue to split reps with Kelvin Beachum in training camp.

Marcus Williams
News
Williams signed his tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

The four-year vet racked up 33 combined tackles and two interceptions one year ago. Given his production over the last two seasons and the Jets' dwindling secondary that no longer includes Darrelle Revis, Williams projects to function as one the team's primary cornerbacks heading into training camp.

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.

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.

Steve McLendon
News
McLendon is not a lock to make the team in 2017, Brian Costello of The New York Post reports.

With David Harris (Patriots) and Eric Decker (Titans) now elsewhere, McLendon is just one of four players on the Jets' roster over the age of 30. Since it appears the team is head deep in a rebuild and trending towards a younger roster, it's possible the 31-year-old could be the next to go if fourth-year players Deon Simon and Mike Pennel show promise during training camp and the preseason. The Jets would save just under $3 million by letting McLendon loose.

Brian Winters
News
Winters left Sunday's game against the Raiders with a groin injury and is questionable to return.

The severity of Winters injury is currently unknown, but if he is unable to return, look for Dakota Dozier to fill in at right guard for New York.

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.

Chad Hansen
News
Hansen caught both of his targets for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Lions.

Hansen easily saw the most reps amongst the Jets' receiving corps Saturday, so it's clear that New York management wants to see what they have in the first-year Cal product. Notably, both he and fellow rookie ArDarius Stewart vastly out-snapped Charone Peake, who was only on the field for two plays and seems to be falling out of favor with the team. Thus, it seems Hansen is moving up the depth chart. and he could therefore be in store for another large workload in the third preseason game Saturday against the Giants.

Buster Skrine
News
Chancellor signed a three-year, $36 million contract extension Tuesday with $25 million guaranteed, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

"I would love to retire here," Chancellor stated prior to finalizing his new deal. This is a good possibility as the veteran safety will be 33 years old at the end of his contract. Chancellor is an elite safety, logging 86 tackles, two interceptions and eight passes defended in 12 games, and expect him to continue to record similar numbers if he's able to stay healthy in 2017.
