A league source tells Profootballtalk.com that the time slot for Sunday's Jets-Bills game in Buffalo could be moved due to snow.
Per PFT, the "potential window" for moving the game could span anywhere from Sunday night to Tuesday night. The Bills were unable to practice Wednesday, and it remains to be seen whether they'll be able to do so on Thursday or Friday. Nov 19 - 8:17 PM

Michael Vick says he's not thinking beyond 2015.

"I'm happy with whatever the situation may be," Vick said. "I understand the type of business that we are in. I'm just going to keep pushing to get better, and that's it." It's the right mindset for Vick, who still shouldn't be considered more than week to week as the Jets' starter. 2015 will be Vick's age-35 season. He's much more likely to be a backup than starter.
Nov 11 - 9:53 PM

Michael Vick completed 10-of-18 passes for 132 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 20-13 Week 10 win over the Steelers.

Vick added eight carries for 39 yards. Starting off hot by shredding a terrible Steelers defense that was without Troy Polamalu and Ryan Shazier, Vick went 4-of-5 for 92 yards with two touchdowns in the first quarter. Unfortunately for the savvy owners that streamed him, the Jets got out to a 17-0 lead and turned Vick into an effective game manager. If pressed into a shootout, we're confident he would have really lit up the scoreboard. Now Vick's fantasy value takes a big hit as he has a bye in Week 11, followed by a game at Buffalo and then home against an excellent Dolphins defense.
Nov 9 - 4:13 PM

Michael Vick (foot) is probable for Week 10.

Vick will start Sunday's game against the Steelers. He's a QB2 play with upside this week. Geno Smith (shoulder) is also listed as probable and will be available as Vick's backup.
Nov 7 - 7:12 PM

Michael Vick (foot) is practicing in full for Week 10.

Vick will be fine to start Sunday's game. With six teams on bye, he'll be a streaming option this week against the Steelers.
Nov 5 - 2:28 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan clarified that he thinks Michael Vick (foot) is "going to be fine" for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

"He’s got a foot that keeps getting stepped on," said Ryan. "... I think he's going to be fine." Ryan said he's "really not concerned" about the foot. Vick has become an increasingly poor bet to last four quarters in a game, but he did play above average football in this past Sunday's loss to Kansas City, accounting for one touchdown, 214 all-purpose yards, and zero turnovers. He'll be a risky-but-fun two-QB-league play in Week 10 against the Ryan Shazier- and Troy Polamalu-less Steelers defense.
Nov 5 - 8:21 AM

Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted Monday that Michael Vick's foot injury is a concern for his Week 10 playing availability.

Rex called it "the biggest concern right now" among all of the Jets' injuries. Vick got the foot stepped on in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. An increasingly slow healer at age 34, Vick's status for Wednesday's practice is unknown.
Nov 3 - 5:00 PM

Michael Vick had a 105.7 passer rating in his first start as a Jet.

Geno Smith had a rating over 100.0 just once in his 24 starts. Passer rating is not a stat we put a ton of stock in, but it shows how Vick went into a very difficult spot at Arrowhead and handled himself well. "I thought Mike did a nice job," coach Rex Ryan said afterward while naming Vick his Week 10 starter. Vick, armed with plus weapons (Percy Harvin, Eric Decker), a plus matchup (home vs. Pittsburgh) and still juicy legs (12 rushes, 87 yards last two weeks) will be a streaming option.
Nov 3 - 8:46 AM

Michael Vick completed 21-of-28 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Chiefs.

He added four carries for 18 yards. Vick moved the offense better than Geno Smith and didn't have any turnovers after losing two fumbles and throwing an interception last week. He briefly exited in the fourth quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, but was cleared to return. The Jets have already committed to Vick for Week 10. With six teams on a bye, Vick will be a streaming option against the Steelers.
Nov 2 - 4:12 PM

Michael Vick was forced from Sunday's Week 9 game against the Chiefs with a head injury.

The Jets evaluated Vick for a concussion. He's been cleared to return to the game.
Nov 2 - 3:16 PM

New Jets starter Michael Vick says he has "to play with some type of control."

After relieving Geno Smith against the Bills last week, Vick committed three turnovers in three quarters. "Last week, I got too greedy," he said Wednesday. "I was trying to play like a 24-year-old Mike Vick." We don't expect Vick to shed his turnover- or injury-prone label, but he does have some fantasy upside thanks to his still dominant legs. Ideally, streamers will use him in a Week 10 home game against the Steelers rather than at Arrowhead against the Chiefs Sunday. Note that while starting for the Eagles in the first four games of last season, Vick averaged 270.0 pass yards, 57.0 rush yards and 1.7 total touchdowns per game. He knows this Marty Mornhinweg offense well after their time together in Philly.
Oct 30 - 9:12 AM

According to the New York Daily News, "all signs" point to the Jets starting Michael Vick in Week 9 at Kansas City.

Per beat reporter Manish Mehta, Vick will start "barring an 11th-hour power play" by GM John Idzik and/or owner Woody Johnson. It'll be a great opportunity for fantasy owners to stream the Chiefs' defense. The game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium, and Vick has become more turnover prone than ever late in his career. He came off the bench in Sunday's loss to Buffalo and took four sacks, threw an interception, and lost two fumbles. Vick can still run a bit, but he's much better at giving the ball to the other team.
Oct 27 - 4:26 PM

The New York Daily News says the feeling inside the Jets is that Michael Vick will start Week 9 unless Rex Ryan is pressured into starting Geno Smith.

The pressure would come from GM John Idzik, who made Smith the No. 39 overall pick in the 2013 draft. He's probably not willing to throw in the towel yet, especially in favor of a 34-year-old quarterback when your team is 1-7. But Rex risks losing the locker room -- and his job -- if he continues to trot out error-repeating Geno. We suspect Vick and his still-dazzling legs will be under center against the Chiefs in Week 9.
Oct 27 - 8:24 AM

Michael Vick completed 18-of-36 passes for 152 yards and an interception in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Bills, adding 69 yards on eight carries.

The Jets benched Geno Smith after he threw three straight interceptions in the first quarter. Vick led to the offense to 17 points on five drives before getting shut down in the second half. The Bills defense dominated at every level against the Jets. Vick lost two fumbles and was sacked four times in addition to his interception, and had a second pick overturned. If Smith doesn't get the starting job back, Vick's rushing ability will make him a streaming option in Week 9 against the Chiefs.
Oct 26 - 5:19 PM

Michael Vick admitted he wasn't prepared to play in Sunday's Week 5 loss at San Diego.

Vick was called on to replace Geno Smith at halftime. He ended up looking just as bad, going 8-of-19 for 47 yards with no touchdowns or picks. "Maybe I didn't prepare or I wasn't prepared, but I'll tell you what, it won't happen again," Vick said. Rex Ryan has decided to go back to Geno for Week 6.
