Brandon Marshall hauled in 3-of-8 targets for 27 yards Week 3 against the Chiefs.
Marshall sat out a few snaps, but he did not seem particularly limited by the knee injury which kept him out of practice most of the week. He was not given a chance on most of his targets, dropped another, and was questionably ruled out of bounds on a one-handed grab in the end zone in the second half. That catch would have made his fantasy day look a lot better, but the reality is no one on the Jets played well enough to deserve a good fantasy day. Marshall should play next week, but he has another tough date with the Seahawks. Sep 25 - 7:42 PM

Date:

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is officially active for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Marshall is expected to be on a snap count, but he should see plenty of work on third downs and especially in the red zone. Those high-value snaps keep him in the WR2 conversation despite the limited work. New York declared ILB Erin Henderson, QB Bryce Petty, QB Christian Hackenberg, RB Troymaine Pope, CB Darryl Roberts, LB Mike Catapano, and OT Brandon Shell inactive for Week 3.
Sep 25 - 3:01 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) could be used situationally Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Adam Schefter reported earlier Sunday Marshall would be on a snap count, so it would make sense to use him primarily on third downs and in the red zone. Cimini also floats the idea Marshall could be a decoy to occupy Marcus Peters. Even with Marshall active, Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa should see a bump in targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall (knee/foot) is expected to play at Kansas City, but he will be on a snap count.

Schefter also tweeted something about the weather in Kansas City being "bad," although Weather.com has Arrowhead experiencing a 0-15 percent chance of rain with mild winds (8-10 MPH) and temperatures in the 70s during Sunday's game. We're not concerned about the weather at all. The snap-count concern should downgrade Marshall from a WR1 to a WR2/3, but snap counts do have a tendency to be thrown to the wind if a player starts hot. Schefter reported Marshall's knee "felt much better" on Saturday.

ESPN New York expects Brandon Marshall (questionable, knee/foot) to play Sunday.

Marshall only got in one limited practice, but the missed reps aren't a huge concern to his Week 3 status. Marshall clearly isn't fully healthy despite playing through his knee injury last week and remains a game-time decision. He's trending toward being active.
Sep 24 - 9:27 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot, questionable) said he is "not where I want to be" in his recovery.

Marshall was able to get in a limited practice Friday, but he did not sound like a player confident about playing. "You want to be an asset to the team, not a liability. But I will do everything I can to be out there, and it will be coach’s decision," Marshall said. "The good thing is there’s still time." Marshall is shaping up as a true game-time decision in an afternoon kick. Owners need to have a backup plan in place.

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) got in a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

After sitting Wednesday and Thursday, Friday's return bodes well for Marshall's chances of playing Sunday, though the Jets are still calling him a game-time decision. We'll have to keep an eye on him Sunday morning, but the Jets-Chiefs do have a late kickoff at 4:25 PM ET.
Sep 23 - 1:05 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is not practicing Thursday.

He did not have a helmet at the start of practice, indicating he will sit out another session. Marshall has said he will "need all the way up until pregame warmup" to see if he is ready, but he is trending in the wrong direction. He needs to get in at least some practice Friday to have a reasonable shot to play against the Chiefs.
Sep 22 - 11:12 AM

In addition to his knee injury, Brandon Marshall (knee) is also dealing with a foot ailment.

At least that's what it says on the Jets' injury report. Marshall took a pretty hard spill against Buffalo last week but miraculously returned and finished with over 100 yards receiving. The hope is that Marshall can play Sunday in Kansas City, though that won't happen unless he returns to practice by the end of the week.
Sep 21 - 6:00 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Eric Decker (shoulder) also didn't practice, while Matt Forte (knee) was limited. Marshall is the biggest question mark after he suffered an injury to his MCL last Thursday night. Though he was able to return to the game, Marshall is probably more sore than he was that night. Decker should be fine, and Forte is likely just getting a veteran's maintenance day.
Sep 21 - 3:24 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee) sounded unsure about his availability for Week 3.

"The school I come from is, don't rule me out until Sunday. I need all the way up until pregame warmup to see if I'm good to go," Marshall said. "Right now, I feel stable. I feel good. And I'm going to work my tail off to get out there and be out there with the guys." Those are not the comments of a player who is confident about his playing status. Marshall sat out practice Monday, and it would not be surprising if he sat out Wednesday's session as well. Quincy Enunwa needs to be added in all leagues.
Sep 20 - 9:08 AM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Brandon Marshall (knee) does not have a sprained MCL.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported Sunday that Marshall is dealing with an "MCL injury." That could still be the case but Bowles is adamant it's not a sprain, which can often lead to a multi-week absence. Marshall wasn't on the field for the start of Monday's practice. We'll continue to monitor his status all week.
Sep 19 - 2:48 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee) was not seen at the start of practice on Monday.

The Jets are not required to release a practice report until Wednesday, so his official status will not be known until then. Marshall shockingly returned to Thursday night's game after a nasty looking knee injury, and coach Todd Bowles has said the receiver is "fine." Pro Football Talk reports he is dealing with an "MCL injury," however, and says he is "not a lock" to be ready for Week 3. This situation will be closely monitored all week.
Sep 19 - 11:38 AM

PFT's Mike Florio reports Brandon Marshall has an "MCL injury" and is "not a lock" to be ready Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Marshall had his knee twisted in an awkward fashion this past Thursday night against the Bills. Replays had many fearing the worst, but Marshall emerged from the locker room to return to the game and post a 6-101 line in the win. With 10 days to rest up, Marshall should be good to go next week, but it'll be something to watch as the week unfolds. We'll have plenty of updates.
Sep 18 - 7:30 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles confirmed Friday that Brandon Marshall (knee) is "fine."

Marshall returned to Thursday night's game and didn't show any noticeable soreness on Friday, which is a great sign. He should be all systems go for Week 3.
