Summary

Coming off a brutal knee injury which shortened his 2014 and it's possible he could start the season (or at least camp) on the PUP list as he is just five and a half months from ACL/MCL surgery. Ridley is a power back who runs hard between the tackles but doesn't tend to contribute much in the passing game or on third down. He's going to be at a severe disadvantage in carving out carries for himself if he misses camp. Both Chris Ivory and Zac Stacy can do what he does, and if they get a whole camp while he is out, he might struggle to crack the rotation. As it stands, he may split carries with one or both of the others as he eases back into full-time work. Ridley has ability, but the backfield is way too crowded to rely on him anytime soon. (May 16)

Jets | Chris Ivory leads backfield (Wed Jun 24, 10:35 AM) - New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is listed as the starting running back entering training camp, according to beat writer Rich Cimini's unofficial depth chart. RB Bilal Powell is the primary backup, and RB Zac Stacy is listed as the third running back. RB Stevan Ridley (knee) could figure in eventually, but he's expected to be limited at the start of camp.

Our View: We were all expecting Ivory to be the top guy...especially with Ridley banged up. What's interesting to note is that Stacy is third on the depth chart. We'll see if he can climb ahead of Powell when training camp starts.

Jets | Stevan Ridley could start on PUP (Sat Jun 20, 01:41 PM) - New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) may begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list as he continues to recover from knee surgery, according to Dom Cosentino of NJ.com.

Our View: If Ridley is not ready for training camp, the odds of him being placed on the PUP to start the season increase. If Week 1 rolls around and Ridley is on the PUP list, then he'll have to miss the first six weeks of the season. Chris Ivory and Zac Stacy are going to compete for the starting job in training camp.
