Free agent special teamer Josh Cribbs worked out for the Colts on Tuesday.

Now 31, Cribbs hasn't drawn much interest since he was allowed to walk in free agency by the Jets. It doesn't appear as if he's getting a deal in Indy.

Updating a previous item, Josh Cribbs was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectorals muscle Tuesday.

It was initially reported that Cribbs was placed on I.R. with a shoulder injury. Either way, his season is over. Cribbs should be ready for the summer.

Jets placed KR Josh Cribbs on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Cribbs' days of running the wildcat for New York's beleaguered offense are through. Going on 31 and increasingly injury prone, Cribbs is going to have trouble finding a home for the 2014 season. His once dynamic return skills have all but evaporated. Darius Reynaud has been signed to take his roster spot.

Coach Rex Ryan said Josh Cribbs' shoulder injury is "pretty bad."

Cribbs is likely done for the year after appearing in just six games for the Jets. Antonio Cromartie filled in as a kickoff returner in Week 13, but that's not a viable solution considering his hip issues and role on defense. The Jets might have to look back to old friend Joe McKnight, who is currently on the street.

Josh Cribbs will undergo a Monday MRI after exiting Sunday's Week 13 game with shoulder and chest pain.

The Jets' Wildcat trickster had zero offensive touches before exiting in the first quarter Sunday. Cribbs' injury has no tangible fantasy impact.

Josh Cribbs left Sunday's Week 13 game against the Dolphins with a shoulder injury.

Cribbs suffered the injury in the first quarter and has been ruled out for the game. Kyle Wilson has replaced him on kick returns.

Josh Cribbs rushed five times for 20 yards and completed 1-of-2 passes for 13 yards in the Jets' Week 12 loss to Baltimore.

Obviously lacking confidence in rookie quarterback Geno Smith, the Jets turned to heavy usage of Wildcat-type plays with ex-Brown Cribbs as the triggerman. Cribbs was just signed off the street on October 15. Knowing Rex Ryan's affinity for the Wildcat, it's entirely possible this package stays as staple of Marty Morhinweg's offense. It was relatively effective in Week 12.

Jets signed KR/WR Josh Cribbs.

The Jets were interested in Cribbs in the offseason, and worked him out again two weeks ago. The veteran return specialist provides insurance for KR/WR Clyde Gates (shoulder). Cribbs won't play on offense in New York.

Free agent KR/WR Josh Cribbs worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

In what sounds like an agent-driven report, CBS' Jason La Canfora reports Cribbs is "back to full health." Now on the wrong side of 30, Cribbs would likely be limited to special teams if he wound up with Gang Green.

Raiders released KR/WR Josh Cribbs.

Looks like he's done. Knee problems popped up on Cribbs' offseason physicals, and his lack of burst was evident on kickoff returns in preseason games. The Raiders will go with Jacoby Ford as their No. 3 receiver and return specialist.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 02:20:00 PM

Raiders KR/WR Josh Cribbs' roster spot is "on shaky ground."

Cribbs has looked several steps slow on preseason returns, and he doesn't help on offense. "I think we’ve got to see the burst and the explosion," coach Dennis Allen said. "That’s something that we’re looking for in the next couple of games." The Raiders would lose nothing by cutting Cribbs and his $865k salary.

Based on preseason tape review, CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair believes Raiders KR/WR Josh Cribbs has "lost a step."

Cribbs underwent offseason meniscus surgery, and several NFL teams wouldn't clear him during free-agency physicals. Through two exhibition games, Cribbs has returned five kickoffs for 115 yards (23-yard average). The 30-year-old has not been involved in the punt return game or in the Raiders' offense.

Raiders KR/WR Josh Cribbs (meniscus surgery) will be sidelined until training camp.

There had been some confusion over when Cribbs would be ready to resume football activities after Jets GM John Idzik said his knee "wasn't quite there yet." Cribbs initially refuted the claim, but Coach Dennis Allen cleared it up today, stating his kick returner won't practice until training camp. Cribbs will be the Raiders' primary return man once the season starts.

New Raiders KR Josh Cribbs (meniscus surgery) says he'll be ready "when it’s time to play football."

Cribbs called Jets GM John Idzik's observation that his knee "(wasn't) quite there yet" a "negotiation tactic" before admitting he might not be ready to practice for over a month. Regardless, Cribbs should be ready well in advance of Week 1, and is slotted in as the Raiders' primary return man.
