  Jets | Sam Darnold struggles Thursday    Thu Aug 16, 10:18 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed eight of his 11 pass attempts for 62 yards and an interception against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Darnold looked like a rookie. He's still probably in line to start Week 1 even though the Jets have two other starting quality quarterbacks on the roster. This was a good warning for the Jets offensive fantasy value early in the season, and the Lions D/ST as a viable Week 1 streamer to take in the last round of your drafts.

  Jets | Sam Darnold to start Thursday    Thu Aug 16, 07:42 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold will be the starting quarterback for the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: All the fawning over Darnold and we will finally see him with the first unit as well as against the first unit. We aren't hot to draft any Jets quarterback, but this is worth watching closely to see how he fares if under center.

  Jets | Cairo Santos bothered by groin injury    Tue Aug 14, 01:04 PM

New York Jets PK Cairo Santos (groin) is dealing with a 'chronic groin injury,' according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: Taylor Bertolet is in camp and could be the starter if Santos's issue lingers. It cost him his spot on the Chiefs last year and its recurrence is worrisome for his future.

  Jets | Sam Darnold has finger wrapped    Mon Aug 13, 09:50 AM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (finger) had his left ring finger wrapped Monday, Aug. 13, after his hand was stepped on in the first preseason game.

Footballguys view: Darnold was able to play with this minor finger injury in his preseason debut. This is a minor issue and shouldn't keep him out of action.

  Jets | Isaiah Crowell has concussion    Sun Aug 12, 08:01 PM

New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (concussion) suffered a concussion in the first preseason game and did not travel with the team for their joint practices with the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: Crowell doesn't have another recorded concussion in his career and has generally been very durable, however if he suffers another concussion during the season, this could turn it into a multi-week absence out of caution.

  Jets | Sam Darnold moving up depth chart?    Sun Aug 12, 04:39 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold saw the 'vast majority' of reps in practice Sunday, Aug. 12, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: Darnold was strong in the preseason opener and did nothing to dispel the notion that he should be the Week 1 starter for the Jets. That might hurt Robby Anderson, who had a great deep ball connection with Josh McCown.

  Jets | Terrelle Pryor targeting third game    Fri Aug 10, 11:03 PM

New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor (ankle) said he won't play until he feels 100 percent healthy, and he his targeting the third preseason game for his return.

Footballguys view: Pryor is trying to have a bounce-back season after his disappointing 2017 in Washington. He has been participating on a limited basis in training camp. We'll see if he can get into the mix when the Jets go 3-or-4 wide receiver sets in the third preseason game and the regular season.

  Jets | Sam Darnold finds the end zone    Fri Aug 10, 10:44 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 13 of his 18 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in a 17-0 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Darnold looked fantastic in his pro debut. His performance is exactly what the Jets were looking for and it could prompt the team to deal Teddy Bridgewater. Darnold is the quarterback of the future and there's a chance he opens the regular season as the starter. If not, it should not take that long for the Jets to go to their 2018 first-round pick.

  Jets | Neal Sterling injures ankle    Fri Aug 10, 09:46 PM

New York Jets TE Neal Sterling (ankle) exited against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug 10, with an ankle injury and is doubtful to return. He had four catches on five targets for 38 yards before leaving.

Footballguys view: Sterling is trying to make the 53-man roster as a reserve tight end. A converted wide receiver from his college days at Monmouth, the Jaguars selected Sterling in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL draft. In his second year with the Jets, Sterling has only 18 receptions for his career.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater sharp Friday    Fri Aug 10, 09:43 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater completed seven of his eight pass attempts for 85 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Friday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is likely being showcased for a trade. Signed to a one-year deal earlier this offseason, Bridgewater is fighting his way back from the horrific leg injury he suffered with the Vikings a couple of years ago. He looked more like the old Bridgewater against the Falcons. With Sam Darnold as the quarterback of the future and Josh McCown as the veteran backup, Bridgewater might get moved to a team in need of a quality backup. Keep an eye on a team like the Broncos here.

  Jets | Isaiah Crowell leaves early    Fri Aug 10, 08:21 PM

New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (head) left the preseason game early Friday, Aug. 10, and is being evaluated for a head injury.

Footballguys view: Bilal Powell earned the start for the Jets in their preseason debut, but Crowell came on after that and looked good in second-team duty. He's likely getting evaluated for a concussion.

  Jets | Cairo Santos not playing    Fri Aug 10, 07:58 PM

New York Jets PK Cairo Santos (leg) is not playing in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 10, because he has been dealing with leg tightness.

Footballguys view: Santos lost his spot as the Chiefs kicker after aggravating a groin injury in-season last year. We'll watch this closely, as Taylor Bertolet may end up having a chance to win a job if Santos can't get healthy soon.

  Jets | All three Jets QBs to play Friday    Wed Aug 8, 07:41 PM

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold will all receive playing time in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 9, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: McCown doesn't need a ton of reps in the first preseason game. Bridgewater could use more time as he is trying to prove himself after that devastating knee injury that knocked him out of the Vikings starting lineup years ago. Darnold is the rookie and the quarterback of the future for the Jets, so he may get the most time.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater could be trade option    Wed Aug 8, 06:25 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater is a player the team would consider trading under the right circumstance, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater was signed to a one-year deal with the Jets this offseason. They selected QB Sam Darnold near the top of the 2018 NFL draft and he's clearly their quarterback of the future. Josh McCown is there for veteran experience so Bridgewater is expendable. We'll see if a team in need of a veteran backup (Denver?) comes calling later in the preseason.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa's hand uncovered    Wed Aug 8, 04:35 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (thumb) is no longer wearing a cast or wrap on his previously injured right thumb.

Footballguys view: Enunwa suffered a minor setback with this thumb injury earlier in camp. He missed all of last year due to a neck injury but the veteran receiver is back and aiming to win the slot receiver duties for the Jets in 2018. At his best in 2016, Enunwa performed at WR4/flex levels. We'll see if he can get back there this season.

  Jets | Chris Herndon making a name for himself    Mon Aug 6, 10:13 PM

New York Jets TEs Chris Herndon 'has the skills to make an important contribution sooner rather than later,' according to The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta, who reports the Jets 'absolutely love' their fourth-round pick.

Footballguys view: The Jets will have a committee at tight end this year, but Herndon could emerge as a fantasy factor long term. He was the rare tight end used on screens in college at Miami.

  Jets | Trenton Cannon sustains injury    Mon Aug 6, 06:30 PM

New York Jets RB Trenton Cannon (foot, ankle) left practice early Monday, Aug. 6, with an apparent injury to his left foot or ankle.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft out of Virginia State, Cannon is a smaller (185 pounds) change-of-pace back who can also contribute as a return man. His durability was already in question coming out of college and this foot injury doesn't help his chances of making the 53-man roster.

  Jets | Isaiah Crowell to be busy?    Thu Aug 2, 09:19 PM

New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell is going to be a 'big factor' in the offense, in the opinion of Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.

Footballguys view: He's going to be someone they lean on, and he has gotten goal line work in camp, but the Jets are not an offense which excites us, and likely won't spend a ton of time in the red zone. Crowell has the capability to be better than 36th off the board -- his current ADP -- but we don't see that happening much this year, with this offense still being built.

  Jets | Little impact for Chad Hansen     Thu Aug 2, 09:15 PM

New York Jets WR Chad Hansen has 'disappeared' during training camp, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.

Footballguys view: If you don't recognize the name, apparently that won't matter soon. He did have a good run during OTAs but it appears as if that moment has passed. He had big-play ability at Cal, but has yet to really replicate it this summer. We're already avoiding the Jets receivers, so avoiding Hansen isn't any hardship.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa out at least one week    Thu Aug 2, 06:38 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (thumb) is expected to miss one to two weeks because of a thumb injury, according sources.

Footballguys view: This shouldn't impact Enunwa a ton, but it's a crowded field at receiver for the Jets and coming off a lost season, also due to injury, he needs to be on the field sooner than later. We are generally avoiding this passing offense this year, though Enunwa could have some value as a low-end PPR option. We need to see more before we buy in, however.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa still sidelined    Thu Aug 2, 02:20 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (hand) remains out of practice with an apparent hand injury. Enunwa had his right hand wrapped as he watched practice Thursday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: It's a crowded, but mediocre, wide receiver group so the sooner Enunwa -- who missed last season due to injury -- gets on the field, the better. The Jets are likely to use Enunwa in the slot, so there is some potential for production, but with the lack of clarity under center and the concerns overall for the offense, we are staying away from Jets receivers.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa dealing with new injury    Wed Aug 1, 07:30 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (undisclosed) suffered an undisclosed injury Tuesday, July 31, and did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: Enunwa was a player on the rise in 2016 when he caught 58 passes for 857 yards but a neck injury caused him to miss the 2017 season. Enunwa's new injury is not related to the neck injury that caused him to miss last season.
