Position Listing
Xavier Cooper
Cooper signed with the Jets on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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

Darryl Roberts
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.

Michael Hunter
Hunter, who suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's game against the Broncos, was waived/injured by the Giants on Tuesday.

Hunter was waived in order to create a roster spot for Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who is returning from his indefinite suspension this week. The cornerback likely will end up on the Giants' injured reserve as soon as he clears waivers.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Carolina
Matt Forte
Forte said Friday that he hopes his "knee will be back to regular" following the Jets' Week 11 bye, Rich Cimini of reports.

Forte also noted he's been plagued by swelling in his right knee "for a while," but an MRI didn't reveal any other damage and he doesn't expect to have surgery on the region. After Sunday's trip to Tampa Bay, the Jets will enter their bye week, giving Forte extra time to get his knee in working order. In the meantime, the ground game will be powered by Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire.

Knee - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Carolina
Bruce Carter
Carter (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and will be ready to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Carter left Week 9's game, a Thursday night matchup, early with this hamstring ailment. It appears it was just a minor tweak, though, and he'll return to his reserve role Sunday.

Rashard Robinson
Robinson (ankle) lined up with the first-team defense during Wednesday's minicamp practice, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

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.

Juston Burris
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.

Akeem Judd
Judd (thumb) was waived from the Titans' injured reserve list Tuesday, per the league's official transaction report.

Judd hurt his thumb over the summer, but it's not clear if he's back to full health yet. If he clears waivers, he'd be free to sign a contract elsewhere.

Thumb - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Carolina
Xavier Coleman
Coleman (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Rich Cimini of 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.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Demario Davis
Davis had eight tackles (six solo) and a sack in Thursday's 34-21 victory over the Bills.

The sack brings Davis' season total to 3.5, and he also added a fumble recovery. The 28-year-old played all 75 defensive snaps Sunday and ranks third in the NFL with 75 tackles (54 solo) this season.

Jordan Jenkins
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
McCown completed 23 of 39 passes for 262 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers. He also fumbled once and recovered.

The veteran was often under duress in his return to Tampa, as he was taken down six times and hit on another eight occasions. McCown did have his moments, firing a 38-yard score to Robby Anderson and connecting with seven different pass catchers on the afternoon. The 38-year-old's passing yardage total was his second best of the season, although Sunday did mark his first game with a completion rate south of 60.0 percent. Despite the disappointing team outcome, McCown has helped the Jets exceed expectations thus far, and his 14:8 TD:INT ratio is keeping him a serviceable fantasy option in all formats. He'll look to help get the Jets back in the win column against the Panthers in Week 12 following their Week 11 bye.

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

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

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Ben Braden
No Updates
Robert Nelson
Nelson was signed to the Texans from the team's practice squad.

The Texans have some injuries in the secondary and Nelson will provide some depth there if they are shorthanded for Week 6 against the Colts.

JoJo Natson
The Jets promoted Natson to their 53-man roster Saturday, Calvin Watkins of reports.

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.

Christian Hackenberg
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
Catanzaro connected on his only field-goal attempt, a 47-yarder, and his only PAT during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

After multiple field goal and PAT attempts in the last two games, the Jets' offense could do little to keep Catanzaro's streak going. He continues to be a fairly reliable fantasy option, though he won't be confused for an elite player at his position.

Julian Stanford
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
Seferian-Jenkins brought in six of nine targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers.

ASJ was held in check for a considerable portion of the contest, but he was able to put together a fourth-quarter surge that enabled him to post his best receiving yardage total of 2017. The fourth-year tight end has proven to be an ideal fit within the Jets' offensive scheme, and despite not getting into the end zone since Week 7, his 39 receptions are certainly keeping him relevant in PPR formats. He'll look to build in Sunday's effort against the Panthers in Week 12 following a Week 11 bye.

Lac Edwards
No Updates
Obum Gwacham
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
Lee had eight tackles (five solo) and a sack in Thursday's 34-21 victory over the Bills.

Lee played all 75 defensive snaps and tied for the team lead in tackles with Demario Davis. The 23-year-old has 63 tackles (45 solo), two sacks and two forced fumbles through nine games as the Jets head into a Week 10 battle against the Buccaneers.

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 12 vs. Carolina
Kelvin Beachum
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
Leggett (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

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

Knee - Injured Reserve
Edmond Robinson
Robinson (groin) was waived/injured by the Jets on Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

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.

Groin - Injured Reserve
Jonotthan Harrison
Harrison (hand) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Harrison failed to practice Thursday and Friday while nursing the hand injury and wasn't able to make enough progress in time to dress for the Week 10 matchup. A reserve lineman for the Jets, Harrison probably won't be in line for many snaps once he recovers from the injury.

Hand - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Carolina
Damore'ea Stringfellow
Stringfellow was signed to the Jets' practice squad on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of 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
Kearse converted eight targets into four catches and 35 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to Tampa Bay.

Kearse looked like an unheralded, late-offseason find earlier in the season with three games of at least 50 yards and three scores in the Jets' first six games. He has since scored just once in four games and has failed to tally 40 yards in game. Some of that high-flying luster for Kearse, and the Jets as a whole, seems to be slipping as the team has lost four of its last five. A more run-focused approach and the emergence of young targets like Robby Anderson are taking their toll on Kearse's production.

Robby Anderson
Anderson brought in four of seven targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Anderson was able to make his trademark speed pay off once again, hauling in a 38-yard scoring throw from Josh McCown to cap a six-play, 70-yard scoring march late in the fourth quarter. The score gave the Jets an opportunity to attempt a last-gasp onside kick, which ultimately proved unsuccessful. Anderson now has a touchdown reception in four straight games and is seeing a consistent target share, making him an emerging asset in all formats. He'll look to stay hot when the Jets return from a bye in a Week 12 tilt against the Panthers.

Jamal Adams
Adams recorded four tackles (three solo) and recovered a fumble in Thursday night's 34-21 win over the Bills.

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.

Kony Ealy
Ealy had his first sack of the season in Thursday night's 34-21 victory over the Bills.

Ealy played 41 of 75 defensive snaps and had an assisted tackle in addition to the sack. The 25-year-old has only 12 tackles (nine solo) on the season and hasn't shown enough with the Jets this season to be an IDP option at this point.

Deon Simon
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
Stewart caught his lone target but didn't gain any yards during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Stewart caught two passes back in Week 1 and Sunday's reception was just his third since. Fellow rookie Chad Hansen finally caught his first passes as a pro Sunday, and while both players should get more reps in light of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, there is fairly minimal fantasy upside given the other options available to quarterback Josh McCown.

Brandon Shell
Shell (neck) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is in line to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

After missing the last two games, Shell will slot back into his right tackle position.

Quincy Enunwa
Enunwa (neck) had a post-surgery doctor's appointment Monday in which an "X-ray looked really good," Rich Cimini of reports.

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

Neck - Injured Reserve
Thomas Hennessy
No Updates
Leonard Williams
Williams recorded a sack in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Williams, who went the first eight weeks of the season without a sack, has now recorded a half-sack and a full one in consecutive weeks. On the day, the 23-year-old notched four tackles (three solo) across 50 defensive snaps (70.0 percent).

Bryce Petty
Jets coach Todd Bowles said Petty will serve as the team's No. 2 quarterback for the foreseeable future, Rich Cimini of 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
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.

Undisclosed - Out for Week 12 vs. Carolina
Mike Pennel
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
Wilkerson (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Wilkerson has been a fixture on the Jets' injury report all season, but hasn't missed any games due to a multitude of issues, including a broken toe. It sounds like Wilkerson plans to keep pushing through the pain as long as he can, and fortunately for the Jets, his play hasn't suffered much because of it. He's recorded nine stops and two sacks over the team's last two contests.

Dylan Donahue
Elbow - Injured Reserve
Terrence Brooks
Brooks (hamstring) practiced without limitations Wednesday and is in line to play Sunday against Tampa Bay, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

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

Eric Tomlinson
Tomlinson scored a 20-yard touchdown on his lone target during Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Falcons.

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.

Chris Gragg
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.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Marcus Maye
Maye tallied the second interception of his rookie season in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Dolphins.

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.

Bilal Powell
Powell rushed 10 times for 30 yards and brought in one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers. He also lost a fumble.

Powell appeared primed for significant volume with Matt Forte (knee) sidelined, but his afternoon could largely be classified as a fantasy dud. The 29-year-old tailback's rushing yardage total mostly consisted of a game-long 21-yard scamper, while his production in the passing game was virtually non-existent. Rookie Elijah McGuire actually outpaced Powell in total touches by a 12-11 margin and 58 to 36 in total yards. Forte could well be back for a Week 12 tilt against the Panthers after the Jets' bye week, but if the veteran isn't quite ready to suit up, a 50-50 workload split between Powell and McGuire in that contest is certainly conceivable.

Elijah McGuire
McGuire rushed eight times for 22 yards and brought in four of seven targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers.

McGuire outpaced backfield mate Bilal Powell in both total touches (12 to 11) and yards (58 to 36), often looking like the more effective of the two. The rookie's reception total was a career high, although he averaged under 3.0 yards per rush for the sixth straight contest. It remains to be seen if Matt Forte (knee) will be ready for the Jets' Week 12 tilt against the Panthers following the team's bye, but even if he suits up, McGuire may still see a solid workload as a complementary presence over Powell.

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

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

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
David Bass
Bass was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of reports.

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

Brisly Estime
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.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Doug Middleton
Josh Martin
Martin (ankle) is unlikely to miss an extended period of time after X-Rays came back negative Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

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.

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

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

Morris Claiborne
Claiborne hurt his foot Sunday against the Buccaneers and is doubtful to return, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Claiborne is on pace for his best season yet, with 30 tackles (23 solo) six pass breakups and one interception so far. Luckily, the Jets have a bye week approaching, so Claiborne will have two weeks to recover before he's called upon again.

Foot - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Carolina
Jalin Marshall
The Jets signed Marshall to their practice squad Monday.

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.

Jeremy Cash
Cash (calf) reached an injury settlement with the Panthers on Tuesday and will be released from the team's injured reserve, Jonathan Jones of Sports Illustrated reports.

Cash was recently placed on injured reserve after missing two straight weeks with a calf injury, but upon his release from injured reserve, he'll be free to sign with any team. The second-year linebacker appeared in eight games last season and recorded six tackles.

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

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

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

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

Rontez Miles
Miles (eye) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Miles is still on track mainly to be a special teams player when he is ready to come back, and rookie second-round pick Marcus Maye continues to slot in as the top free safety. Terrence Brooks will receive more work as a reserve safety in Miles' absence.

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.

Jeremy Kerley
The NFL suspended Kerley for four games Monday for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.

Whispers of a possible suspension for the veteran wideout first surfaced ahead of the Jets' eventual Week 9 victory over the Bills, but Kerley proceed to play in that game, logging just six offensive snaps before exiting with a foot injury. The extent of Kerley's injury remains unclear, but he'll get more than a month to recover from the issue with the suspension now officially in place. Kerley is eligible to return to the active roster ahead of the Jets' Week 15 game against the Saints.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 15 at New Orleans
Ben Ijalana
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.

Lorenzo Mauldin
Mauldin (back) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Connor Hughes of 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.

Devin Smith
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.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Steve McLendon
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.

Geoff Gray
No Updates
Brian Winters
Winters (abdomen) is active for Sunday's tilt against Tampa Bay.

Winters was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, ultimately leading to a questionable tag entering Sunday. He'll start and likely won't be limited, unless he aggravates the injury.

Terrell Sinkfield
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
Hansen caught three of four targets for 33 yards during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Head coach Todd Bowles said last week that Hansen should get more reps in light of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, and that certainly came to fruition Sunday as Hansen caught the first passes of his career. It's certainly a step in the right direction, but with a number of pass catchers ahead of him on the depth chart, not to mention the running back and tight end options, his fantasy upside is fairly limited.

Buster Skrine
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).
