Position Listing
Xavier Cooper
News
Cooper re-signed with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The deal aims to strengthen the depth up front and provide a security blanket for an already strong defensive group. Although Cooper likely won't start, the fourth-year veteran has a chance to help out in situational schemes.

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.

Terrelle Pryor
News
Pryor (ankle) made an appearance without a walking boot at Wednesday's practice, but he did not participate in the session, Calvin Watkins of Newsday reports.

Pryor continues his rehab from a minor foot procedure he underwent this offseason, but he's expected to return to the mix during training camp. HIs presence without a boot Wednesday furthers that notion, especially with more than a month left before training camp begins.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Dimitri Flowers
No Updates
Cairo Santos
News
Santos faces competition for the Jets' kicking job after the team claimed Nick Rose off waivers from the Chargers on Monday, NJ.com reports.

Santos is now presumably past the offseason procedure he underwent to repair a groin muscle injury, so he'll now focus on fending off the challenge that Rose is in line to present. Whichever kicker claims the job will be working behind an offense that averaged just 18.6 points per game last season. Newcomers like wideout Terrelle Pryor and running back Isaiah Crowell could help spur improvements on that front in 2018, but the team's attack is still slated to be directed by 38-year-old Josh McCown, while the Jets groom their soon-to-be drafted quarterback of the future.

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.

Kevin Pierre-Louis
News
Pierre-Louis sustained a shoulder injury in Saturday's 30-13 win over the Chargers.

Prior to departing, Pierre-Louis produced three tackles and broke up a pass. The Chiefs should have more information regarding Pierre-Louis' health when the team resumes practicing Wednesday, but his potential absence Week 16 against the Dolphins would leave Kansas City without a key member of its inside-linebacker rotation.

Charles D. Johnson
News
Johnson (knee) signed with the Jets on Monday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

A 2013 seventh-round pick, Johnson made a bit of a splash while playing with Teddy Bridgewater for the 2014 Vikings, averaging 71 receiving yards over a five-week stretch late in the season. He's managed only 479 yards in his other 34 career games, most recently spending 2017 on injured reserve with the Panthers while recovering from a knee injury. Despite reuniting with his former quarterback, Johnson will be a long shot to make the final roster on a Jets team with ample competition at wide receiver.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
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.

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
Kevin Minter
News
Minter signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Minter disappointed on a one-year deal with the Bengals in 2017, accruing just 32 tackles in nine games after racking up 175 tackles in 32 games during his previous two seasons with the Cardinals. Injuries were largely to blame, as Minter dislocated his elbow in October before sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury in Week 14. He'll look to turn his career around with a Jets team that already has 2016 first-rounder Darron Lee and offseason acquisition Avery Williamson at inside linebacker.

Anthony Wint
No Updates
Trenton Cannon
No Updates
Jordan Jenkins
News
Jenkins is dealing with a shoulder injury that may keep him out of training camp, Manish Mehta of New York Daily News reports.

Jenkins has sat out of all team drills through OTAs thus far, and he's been working into special teams drills sparingly. When asked if Jenkins would be ready for training camp, head coach Todd Bowles gave an unimposing, "We'll see." The 23-year-old has been a mainstay on the Jets' defense, racking up 90 tackles (55 solo) and 5.5 sacks while starting 30 consecutive games since his rookie season in 2016. The Jets brought in few threatening reinforcements to the linebackers this offseason, so even if Jenkins isn't ready for training camp, his starting job should be secured.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Josh McCown
News
McCown (hand) will open training camp as the Jets' starting quarterback, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

While McCown will begin camp as the team's starter, Jets head coach Todd Bowles also made sure to note that it remains to be seen what happens at the end of camp. Rookie Sam Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will surely be eyeing an opportunity at the starting job. McCown is the incumbent and has experience on his side, but his two younger counterparts should have more upside in the long run.

Charone Peake
News
Peake (ankle) finished 2017 with one catch for three yards in three games.

Peake initially was considered a candidate to return from injured reserve after he hurt his ankle in September, but he never made it back and probably wouldn't have gotten much playing time even if he had. The 2016 seventh-round pick likely will need to battle for a roster spot in training camp, assuming he recovers from last year's ankle injury.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ben Braden
No Updates
Avery Williamson
News
Williamson signed a three-year, $22.5 million deal with the Jets on Friday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

Williamson fills the Jets' middle linebacker void that was created when they let Demario Davis walk in free agency. The four-year pro has two seasons with over 100 tackles, but Williamson saw just 41 defensive snaps per game in 2017 and fell short with only 92 tackles. With a hefty pay day on deck and little competition surrounding him, expect Williamson to be a Week 1 starter.

Antonio Garcia
News
Garcia (illness) was claimed off waivers by the Jets, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Garcia was waived by the Patriots over the weekend after missing the entire 2017 season with blood clots in his lungs. The 2017 third-rounder will now get a chance to prove himself on another AFC East team.

Injury
Illness - Questionable for the start of training camp
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
Trumaine Johnson
News
The Jets are in line to sign Johnson, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The best cornerback on the market this offseason, Johnson has a seven-interception campaign (2015) and three years with 60-plus tackles (2013, 2015, 2017) on his resume. Expect the 28-year-old to slot in opposite Buster Skrine this season and beyond as he looks to uphold a contract with an average annual value of $15 million per year, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

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 will be the primary play caller on defense this season, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

The Jets signed Avery Williamson to replace Demario Davis as the "mike" inside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, but Lee likely will retain a three-down role while handling play calling from the "mo" spot. The 2016 first-round pick played 1,028 defensive snaps last season, notching 94 tackles (67 solo), three sacks and two forced fumbles in 15 games. Davis led the team in both tackles (135) and sacks (five), with his 1,118 defensive snaps ranking first in the entire league.

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
Sam Darnold
No Updates
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) figures to compete with rookie Chris Herndon for the Jets' starting tight end job, NJ.com reports.

Eric Tomlinson, Neal Sterling, Clive Walford and Bucky Hodges are also in the mix, but at this stage it looks like Leggett -- now presumably past the knee injury that derailed his rookie season -- and Herndon have the best chance to step into the role created by the free-agent departure of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. To the victor goes No. 1 depth chart slotting, but fantasy relevance could prove elusive in the context of the Jets offense.

Brandon Copeland
News
Copeland signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday.

Copeland entered free agency as a restricted free agent but became unrestricted when the Lions declined to tender him a contract. The 26-year-old missed the entire 2017 season with a torn pectoral and is likely to serve as a reserve linebacker for the Jets in 2018.

Jonotthan Harrison
News
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
No Updates
Jermaine Kearse
News
Kearse is unlikely to be a cap casualty, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Other beat writers have speculated that Kearse's non-guaranteed $5.5 million salary could put his roster spot in jeopardy, even though the Jets will enter training camp with around $20 million in cap space, OverTheCap. The 28-year-old was a pleasant surprise during his first year in New York, establishing career highs for catches (65), targets (103) and receiving yards (810). The Jets signed Terrelle Pryor (ankle) and hope to have Quincy Enunwa (neck) healthy, but Kearse is still the favorite to get regular playing time opposite Robby Anderson. The only way it would make sense for the Jets to release Kearse is an unlikely scenario in which some combination of Pryor, Enunwa, Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart clearly outplay Kearse during training camp and the preseason.

Robby Anderson
News
Anderson's attorney, Ed O'Donnell, said that his client pleaded no contest Wednesday to charges of reckless driving stemming from a January arrest, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

After the plea, Anderson is no longer facing charges from either of his two arrests from the past 13 months. He'll still face six months of non-reporting probation for the January incident, but neither legal issue should impact his preparation for the upcoming campaign. The wideout is still awaiting a potential fine and/or suspension from the league for violating the personal conduct policy, with an NFL spokesman relaying Thursday that a review of both incidents remains ongoing.

Travis Swanson
News
Swanson signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Swanson, a former third-round selection of the Lions, spent his first four seasons in Detroit, starting 42 of 53 games during the stint. However, he missed the final six games of last season due to a concussion -- an injury the center now disputes, claiming he instead had a bad reaction to the medicine he received for the injury. The Jets also brought in former Redskins center Spencer Long (quadriceps), who figures to start the season atop the depth chart. However, Long is returning from a torn quadriceps injury last season, which could give Swanson an opportunity to take over starting duties should Long be sidelined heading into training camp.

Nathan Shepherd
No Updates
Austin Golson
No Updates
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.

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.

Foley Fatukasi
No Updates
ArDarius Stewart
News
Stewart is facing a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 third-round pick allegedly tested positive for a diuretic or masking agent. He'll still be eligible for training camp and the preseason, but this won't help Stewart's chances to earn a meaningful role in a receiving corps with Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa (neck), Terrelle Pryor (ankle), Chad Hansen and Andre Roberts. Despite his draft status, the 24-year-old may enter camp on the roster bubble, following a rookie season with six catches in 15 games.

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) practiced with a helmet for the first time Tuesday, but he still only took part in individual drills, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Enunwa, who is coming off a serious neck injury, being able to successfully practice with a helmet on his a huge step forward in the wide receiver's recovery. Head coach Todd Bowles did say that he will keep Enunwa away from team drills for the rest of minicamp, but the expectation is that the wideout is cleared for full participation in training camp.

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.

J.J. Wilcox
News
Wilcox backed out of a deal with the 49ers and is expected to ink a deal with the Jets instead, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com 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
News
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
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 three-year deal with the Jets on Friday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com 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.

Dylan Donahue
News
Donahue's arrest in Weehawken, N.J. last month was his second related to alcohol and driving in the last year, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

On the morning of Feb. 26, Donahue allegedly drove the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel and induced a crash with a bus. He subsequently was charged with DWI and reckless driving, the former of which could subject him to discipline under the NFL's substance abuse policy. Monday's news included another accusation in the same realm. Last May 9, or 10 days after he was selected in the fifth round of the draft, Donahue's SUV was discovered on its roof with the linebacker behind the wheel in Billings, Mont. For that infraction, he was charged with misdemeanor DUI. Both cases will have to play out before the league makes a judgement, but a suspension is likely with two transgressions on his record.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Terrence Brooks
News
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.

Courtney Upshaw
News
Upshaw has signed a contract with the Jets.

Upshaw spent the early years of his career playing outside linebacker in Baltimore's 3-4 scheme, but he has spent the past couple of seasons with a hand in the dirt at either defensive end or defensive tackle for the Falcons. Now at 272 pounds, he will return to a 3-4 scheme in New York, though it wouldn't be surprising if they envision him staying at a defensive end spot. Either way, the 2012 second-round pick's versatility should be an asset that gives him a shot to play on Sundays this fall.

Neville Hewitt
News
Hewitt (shoulder) was waived by Miami on Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

This move was somewhat of a surprise as the Dolphins are woefully thin at linebacker after Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons. Perhaps the shoulder injury is more bothersome than they have let on or perhaps they will sign him at the conclusion of Week 1 when they won't have to guarantee his salary for the entire season.

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.

Marcus Maye
News
Maye (ankle) says he'll be ready for training camp, Calvin Watkins of Newsday.com reports.

Maye was on the sidelines for the first day of mandatory minicamp, just like he was during OTAs. The Jets leaned on Maye heavily in his rookie campaign, as he played 1,066 snaps and made 79 tackles (57 solo) through 16 games. Training camp starts in late July, and if he suffers a setback in the time being, J.J. Wilcox will likely slot in at free safety.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bilal Powell
News
Powell could lose out on a starting role in 2018 after the Jets signed Isaiah Crowell to a three-year contract Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of Newsday reports.

Powell averaged 4.3 yards and scored five times on 178 carries last season, but his involvement in the passing game took a massive downturn from 105 catches between 2015 and 2016 to only 23 in 2017. With Crowell likely ticketed for early down work, it's fair to wonder if Powell might eventually be released, a move that would save the Jets $4 million while incurring an $883,334 dead cap charge, per OverTheCap.com. The Jets then would use Elijah McGuire or a free agent/draft pick as their passing-down complement to Crowell.

Elijah McGuire
News
McGuire may serve as the Jets' third-down back this season, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

McGuire only caught 17 passes during his rookie season, but he did have 130 receptions in 51 games at Louisiana-Lafayette. He'll likely compete with Bilal Powell for snaps on passing downs, while offseason addition Isaiah Crowell is the favorite to lead the team in carries. The Jets might ultimately release Powell to clear up cap space if Crowell and McGuire look good during training camp.

David Bass
News
Bass re-signed with the Jets on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Bass likely will be of most service via special teams, but don't be surprised if the 27-year-old is used in several defensive packages in 2018. Last season, Bass registered a career-high 3.5 sacks in 13 games. The arrivals of Avery Williamson, Kevin Minter and Kevin Pierre-Louis could stymie Bass' ability to regenerate that production, but the new contract suggests the Jets still see Bass as a good fit.

Isaiah Crowell
News
Crowell views himself as a three-down back, but the New York Post's Brian Costello thinks both Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will play sizable roles at running back as well.

Crowell got a career-high 206 carries with the Browns last season, but he ceded the majority of pass-catching duties to Duke Johnson and finished with a mere 182 yards on 28 receptions. Costello believes both Powell and McGuire are better receivers out of the backfield, so the 25-year-old Crowell is likely to find himself without a three-down role in his new location as well. That being said, Crowell is still the favorite to lead New York in production on the ground.

Bucky Hodges
News
Hodges signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Hodges, a sixth-round selection in the 2017 Draft, was waived-injured by the Vikings back in September and then spent six weeks on the Panthers' practice squad. He'll now compete with Neal Sterling and Jordan Leggett for a reserve tight end role this season.

Doug Middleton

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

Sterling will have to put on a strong showing if he hopes to hang around past the preseason. Despite the somewhat long odds to survive final roster cuts, the Jets' relative inexperience and depth at tight end bodes well for Sterling's chances.

Henry Anderson
News
Anderson was traded to the Jets on Saturday, Stephen Holder of indystar.com 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.

Morris Claiborne
News
Claiborne will be forced to wear a soft brace on his left wrist for 6-8 weeks in total, having already sported it for two weeks, Calvin Watkins of Newsday reports. He's dealing with a severe bruise that includes some swelling.

Claiborne reportedly underwent surgery on his left wrist his rookie season and on his left pinky years back, so it's safe to say the team will likely take a cautious approach regarding his return. The length of recovery places his timeline to shed the cast around the start of training camp. Assuming he can rejoin practice sometime during camp, the seventh-year cornerback is expected to slot in as a starter once again.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for the start of training camp
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.

Rontez Miles
News
Miles underwent surgery Wednesday to address a torn meniscus in his knee and is expected to be sidelined for 3-to-4 months, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While the circumstances behind Miles' injury are unclear, it's likely that he injured the knee at some point during the Jets' offseason program. The projected timetable means that Miles won't be ready for the start of training camp and will almost certainly be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list in the near future. If Miles' recovery trends to the longer end of that timeframe, he'll be a candidate for injured reserve, though he could be designated as one of two players eligible to return from IR. Miles was projected to serve as the top backup at either safety spot, but his injury now opens the door for the newly signed J.J. Wilcox to take on greater importance in the New York secondary.

Injury
Knee - Meniscus - Questionable for the start of training camp
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 signed a one-year contract with the Jets on Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The Jets allowed Ijalana to test the open market but it's now apparent he'll be brought back for another season. Capable of playing both left and right tackle, it's possible he could open the 2018 campaign in a starting role.

Teddy Bridgewater
News
Bridgewater (knee) will open training camp behind just Josh McCown (hand) on the depth chart, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Bridgewater last saw significant playing time during the 2015 season, notching 3,231 yards and a 14:9 TD:INT ratio as the Vikings' starting signal-caller. A devastating knee injury essentially robbed him of two seasons, but he will get another crack at a starting job in New York during 2018. Bridgewater has reportedly impressed early in offseason workouts and he should remain in the mix during training camp, but the presence of third-overall pick Sam Darnold on the roster likely limits his future upside.

Taylor Bertolet
News
Bertolet signed with the Jets on Monday.

Bertolet was recently waived by the Broncos a week ago after spending just over a month with the franchise. The Jets are expected to move forward with Cairo Santos as their No. 1 kicker, but Bertolet will serve as competition along with Nick Rose this offseason.

Thomas Rawls
News
Rawls will enter training camp on the roster bubble, NJ.com's Daryl Slater reports.

Now three years removed from his only productive season, Rawls settled for a one-year contract without any guaranteed money. He managed just 3.0 yards per carry on 167 attempts the past two years in Seattle, looking nothing like the player who rumbled for 830 yards on only 147 carries (5.6 YPC) as an undrafted rookie in 2015. Rawls likely will enter training camp fourth or fifth on the depth chart, with no assurance of making the team even if the Jets decide to carry four running backs. Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell figure to get most of the first-team work, with Rawls, Elijah McGuire and rookie sixth-round pick Trenton Cannon splitting snaps with the backup units.

Spencer Long
News
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.

Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin recently indicated he's back to normal after losing his 2017 campaign to season-ending back surgery, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports. "I'm out there running at the same speed that I was before. I'm definitely staying in the training room so that I can stay healthy this year," the linebacker said

Before the 2017 season, Mauldin was showing some promise as a rotational linebacker, racking up 6.5 sacks in his first 26 games. The 2015 third-rounder has a chance to pick up where he left off in 2018 if he can show his back injury is behind him. However, Mauldin will first need to fend off Josh Martin -- the guy who replaced him last season -- for the starting role.

Clive Walford
News
Darryl Slater of NJ.com views Walford as a candidate to be omitted from the Jets' final 53-man roster this fall.

Plenty can happen between now and cut-downs, but Walford isn't guaranteed anything with the Jets, despite the void at tight end created by the departure of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Jordan Leggett (knee) and Chris Herndon (knee) are currently the co-favorites to to land the starting job.

Andre Roberts

Roberts is signing with the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Jets just added Terrelle Pryor (ankle) to a wideout group that includes Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa (neck) and 2017 draft picks ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. While there aren't any sure things among the bunch, Roberts nonetheless figures to mostly focus on special teams, considering he had 15 receptions, 79 kickoff returns and 47 punt returns in 32 games for the Lions and Falcons the past two years. The 30-year-old returned two punts for scores in 2016, but he averaged only 22.6 yards on 38 kick returns and 7.4 yards on 27 punt returns last season, without taking any to the house. JoJo Natson was the Jets' primary return man in 2017, posting dismal averages of 20.3 yards on 16 kickoffs and 2.4 yards on 16 punts.

Steve McLendon

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.

Winters says he has fully healed from the abdominal injury that derailed his 2017 season, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

Winters' months of "horrendous" pain appear to be in the rearview mirror following his return to team activities. The veteran guard is expected to be an anchor on New York's offensive line moving forward.

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 continues to impress at camp, Connor Hughes of SNYtv reports.

Media personnel covering the Jets have been heaping praise on Hansen ever since the start of OTAs. This time, Hughes highlighted a play during which Hansen beat star cornerback acquisition Trumaine Johnson on a comeback route. While the second-year man out of Cal has no shortage of competition in a deep wide receiver corps, he could work his way into the mainstream fantasy conversation with a strong preseason and has already pulled away from ArDarius Stewart, who was drafted one round earlier in 2017.

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).
