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.
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.
Forte's situation is worth monitoring closely as Sunday's 1 p.m. EST kickoff approaches. If he's able to suit up Sunday, he would be in line to share snaps out of the Jets backfield with Bilal Powell. In the event that Forte is scratched, Powell would be in line to see added work in Week 15, thus boosting his fantasy upside. With Bryce Petty now at quarterback in the wake of Josh McCown's season-ending hand injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com relays that one "distinct tendency" displayed by Petty last season was that "he threw a lot of checkdowns" to Powell, suggesting Forte's role on passing downs could become more limited.
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.
Whitehead rejoins the Jets' organization after reaching an injury settlement back in early September. Foot surgery ultimately led to Whitehead being reverted to the team's injured reserve, but it looks like he may be closer to full health now with his re-signing. It remains unclear if New York is planning on using the special teams star on its active roster this season.
Showing no signs of the ankle injury he suffered in the 49ers' season finale, Robinson reportedly made a leaping interception on a deep pass from Brian Hoyer during seven-on-seven drills. He rolled with the first-string unit because Jimmie Ward (collarbone) wasn't able to participate in full, but if Ward switches to safety ahead of the upcoming campaign as expected, Robinson would likely become a mainstay in the starting lineup.
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.
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.
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.
The 10 solo tackles represent the second time this season Davis has reached double-digit tackles by himself. The 28-year-old now has 110 tackles (81 solo) and five sacks in 13 games this season.
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.
The 38-year-old was placed on injured reserve the same day, ending what had been a surprisingly strong season for the well-traveled quarterback. Bryce Petty will start for the Jets in Sunday's game against the Saints and is expected to remain the team's top signal caller the rest of the way. Set to become a free agent this offseason, McCown's age will likely force him to settle for a one-year deal if he opts to keep his career going.
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.
Natson has been on the team's practice squad after making an impression in the preseason, and finally earned a roster spot. The 23-year-old will likely contribute on special teams, but with ArDarius Stewart (groin) not certain to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, he could see some opportunities as fourth wide receiver if Stewart cannot play.
Thomas spent the entire preseason with the Jets but didn't make it past the final cuts. Now on the practice squad, the running back could be called up to the active roster should the team face more injuries in the backfield.
With Josh McCown (hand) hitting injured reserve Tuesday, Bryce Petty will take over as the team's starting quarterback in Week 15 against the Saints. Like Hackenberg, Petty is a similarly youthful developmental quarterback who has yet to prove his worth at the NFL level, but based on Bowles' comments, it seems as though Petty has demonstrated enough in practices this season to create clear separation from Hackenberg, who will be active for the first time in 2017 as the backup signal caller. Even if an injury to or poor play from Petty were to open up an opportunity over the final three contests, Hackenberg wouldn't warrant a look outside of deep two-quarterback formats.
Catanzaro's stock seemed destined to benefit from playing in Denver's altitude, but the Jets' offense unfortunately didn't afford him any scoring opportunities. On the bright side, another seemingly great kicking situation awaits, as New York will play indoors against the Saints come Sunday.
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.
The seven yards came out to a season low for Seferian-Jenkins, and he's now been held to two catches in three of his last four games after starting the season with six straight games with at least three. The big-bodied target is seeing competition from Eric Tomlinson, who logged 43 offensive snaps to Seferian-Jenkins' 58 on Sunday, but Tomlinson is not much of a receiving threat. The true competition is coming on the outside as Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson have gotten hot on the perimeter. Look for Seferian-Jenkins to get a little more involved against a Denver team that boasts a trio of shutdown corners but has had a lot of trouble stopping tight ends.
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.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, Lee was late for practice, resulting in his inactivity. The punishment for the violation should not carry into Week 14, but check up on Lee's status in the coming days to confirm his clearance.
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.
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.
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.
Robinson was sidelined for the Jets' season-opening loss against the Bills, and it appears his groin injury is more serious than first thought. The 25-year-old will likely revert to the team's injured reserve list, assuming he clears waivers.
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.
Kearse entered Sunday with 262 yards in his previous two games, but the Jet flew into Denver's No Fly Zone on Sunday. The four yards were a season low for Kearse and, after a minor hot streak, it looks doubtful that things will get much easier for the veteran target. The Jets end their season with three straight games against teams currently leading their division, and Kearse will be catching passes from Bryce Petty, who managed just two completions on nine attempts against Denver on Sunday.
Though it's generally assumed the Jets offense at large will struggle the rest of the way following Josh McCown's (hand) placement on injured reserve, Anderson's previous connection with Petty could help the wideout avoid a more substantial crash than the rest of New York's skill-position players. In Petty's four starts and two relief appearances last season, Anderson's 35 targets were more than any player on the Jets during that span, including former No. 1 receiver Brandon Marshall. Anderson parlayed that target total into 17 catches for 313 yards, numbers that would be roughly in line with his 2017 figures if prorated over a 13 games. Given that Anderson will face a tough Saints secondary, it's difficult to bank on him maintaining the strong form he showed with McCown in recent weeks, but he still could see enough volume to help out fantasy owners in playoff matchups.
Adams played 72 of 75 defensive snaps and continues to be prominently featured on the back end of the Jets defense. The 22-year-old has been relatively quiet the past two games and will hope to bounce back against the Buccaneers in Week 10.
Ealy was in danger of missing his second consecutive game, but now that he's ready to go, he may receive even more snaps. With Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder) a game-time decision, Ealy will share snaps with Lawrence Thomas if Wilkerson can't play.
After missing the last two games, Shell will slot back into his right tackle position.
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.
The long snapper suffered a concussion Sunday against the Broncos and will need to pass protocol testing before he can take the field again. Tight end Eric Tomlinson took over long snapping duties against the Broncos, but the Jets may look to sign another long snapper before the contest if Hennessy cannot play.
Williams now has just four tackles (one solo) and a half sack over the last three games. The third-year pro played 59 of 70 defensive snaps, so it's not for a lack of opportunities. In the midst of playoffs, Williams isn't a reliable enough IDP asset to bolster championship rosters.
Petty filled in for McCown late in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Broncos, completing only two of nine passes for 14 yards. The 2015 fourth-round pick was impressive this preseason, but he failed to display anything approaching competence in 2016 when he completed 75 of 133 passes (56.4 percent) for 6.1 yards per attempt, with three touchdowns and seven interceptions in six games (four starts). Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse need to be downgraded as the Jets prepare for a Week 15 road matchup against a Saints defense that ranks sixth in the NFL with 14 interceptions.
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.
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.
Wilkerson has been slowed by a broken toe and a shoulder injury for much of the season, but has yet to miss a game due to either issue. With only 3.5 sacks and 46 tackles across 13 contests, however, Wilkerson is in the midst of a second straight down season since inking a five-year, $85 million extension in the summer of 2016. In addition to his declining play on the field, Wilkerson has also routinely caused problems in the locker room the last two seasons, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Bowles' choice to hold Wilkerson out in Week 15 only adds more fuel to the notion that the Jets are planning to cut ties with the defensive end this offseason.
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.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins has dominated the tight end targets this season, and while Tomlinson was able to find the end zone Sunday, the former still finished with five catches on five targets for 28 yards. Used more for blocking than pass catching, Tomlinson's fantasy value remains low despite Sunday's score.
Gragg broke his ankle in Thursday's preseason finale. He's likely to remain on IR for the duration of the season.
Maye also provided seven tackles (three solo) in the contest. The 24-year-old was on the field for all 73 defensive snaps and figures to continue being involved in the defensive action as the season goes on.
The Broncos' defense dominated like old times, and the Jets could only muster three drives longer than a three-and-out the entire day. Powell only had one rush longer than two yards until the game was in full blowout mode late in the third quarter. It's not likely to get any better for the 29-year-old in Week 15 at New Orleans, especially with Bryce Petty likely to be under center.
McGuire will be available Sunday, and the difference between him being the third man up in a running back committee or acting as Bilal Powell's complement this weekend, hinges on the availability of Matt Forte (knee), who the Jets list as questionable for Week 15 action.
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.
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.
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.
Martin's injury doesn't appear to be all that serious following the X-Ray diagnosis. Whether he'll return to action in Week 4 seems likely to hinge on his practice availability throughout the week, so be sure to follow up on that front. If Martin can't play, expect rookie Dylan Donahue to get extra reps throughout the week and leading up to Sunday's game.
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.
Claiborne has been dealing with foot and lower leg injuries all season, but has only missed one game thus far. With the Jets effectively eliminated from playoff contention, New York may be cautious with Claiborne's foot. In the event he sits, expect Darryl Roberts to see an expanded role at cornerback in Week 15.
Marshall was waived by the Jets on Saturday in order to boost depth in their defensive backfield. The pass catcher subsequently cleared waivers and has now agreed to join the team's practice squad.
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.
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.
Cut loose by Chicago following the conclusion of the preseason, Langford joined the Ravens' practice squad and was briefly promoted to the 53-man roster before being let go after suffering an unspecified injury. Now apparently healthy, Langford will head to a new organization, but it's unlikely he'll get a look during the Jets' final four games unless one of Matt Forte (knee), Bilal Powell or Elijah McGuire suffers a season-ending injury.
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.
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.
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.
Stave completed four of nine passes for 80 yards and a score while competing for a reserve gig in the preseason with the Chiefs, but didn't make the team and later latched on with the Vikings' practice squad. After a short stint in Minnesota, he's now in Washington, but is unlikely to be promoted to the active roster unless an injury strikes either Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy.
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.
McLendon suffered his injuries Sunday against the Panthers, but his full participation Thursday makes it seem as if the ailments are now behind him. Look for the defensive tackle to resume his role in the starting lineup Sunday against the Chiefs.
Winters was able to play through these ailments in Week 14 against the Broncos, but if he is unable to answer the call this week, expect Dakota Dozier to slot into the right guard position.
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.
Hansen played 28 of 70 offensive snaps Sunday and was the clear No. 3 receiver for the Jets. Receivers Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse -- along with tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins -- were the only players with multiple targets. The Jets passing game isn't diverse enough in its current form for Hansen to be a viable or consistent fantasy option.
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).
