Jets placed K Nick Folk on injured reserve with a quadriceps injury, ending his season.
Ex-Texan Randy Bullock will handle kicking duties for the rest of the season. Inaccurate earlier in his career, Folk has gotten steadier through the years, converting at least 80 percent of his field goals in each of the past three seasons. Still only 31 and signed through 2017, he should be back with Gang Green in 2016. Nov 10 - 1:42 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles revealed Monday that K Nick Folk is dealing with a 4-6 week quad injury.

He may have to go on injured reserve. Folk's quad "popped" in pre-game warmups ahead of Sunday's win over the Jaguars. Facing the Bills on Thursday, look for the Jets to sign a new kicker by no later than Tuesday afternoon.
Nov 9 - 5:24 PM

Jets K Nick Folk (quad) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Bills.

Folk will probably be headed to injured reserve if he has to miss more than 1-2 games. He's obviously not worth holding onto in fantasy leagues. His replacement will be signed off the street.
Nov 9 - 3:10 PM

Jets K Nick Folk "felt a little pop" in his quad muscle while practicing a kickoff ahead of Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

The injury occurred roughly an hour before game time. "I couldn't make an extra point," Folk said. "I tried pregame, I just couldn't get any power into it." The Jets were forced to use P Ryan Quigley on extra points, and went for two after their touchdowns. Folk's Week 10 status is uncertain.
Nov 8 - 9:28 PM

Jets K Nick Folk has a right quad injury and will not be available to kick field goals Sunday against the Jaguars.

Instead Folk will hold for punter/emergency kicker Ryan Quigley. The Jets went for it on fourth and three at the 25-yard line. That would suggest they're not comfortable using Quigley unless it's a very short field goal attempt. It's unclear when Folk suffered his injury but obviously he won't be of any use to fantasy owners on Sunday.
Nov 8 - 1:43 PM

Jets restructured the contract of K Nick Folk.

New York converted $1.78 million of Folk's $2.5 million base salary into a signing bonus. The move creates $1.19 million in cap space for 2015.

Jets K Nick Folk (hip) is active for Week 14.

Folk will play through his hip-flexor, but was missing 53-yard attempts in pre-game warmups and has struggled the last three weeks. He isn't a recommended Week 14 fantasy option.

Jets K Nick Folk (hip) is expected to be fine for Sunday's game in Minnesota.

It's good news for the Jets, but with Folk struggling of late and heading into an outdoor road game, he's not a recommended option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Jets K Nick Folk is dealing with a hip-flexor injury.

Folk shanked two field goals in Monday's three-point loss, and has missed three kicks in the past three weeks. He should be considered uncertain for Week 14.

Jets signed franchise player K Nick Folk to a multi-year contract extension.

According to ESPN New York, the deal is worth "at least" $3 million per season. Folk would have earned $3.556 million under the franchise tag. Folk's accuracy has come and gone during his career, but he drained 33-of-36 field-goal attempts in 2013. He owns a career 80.3 conversion rate.

Jets assigned the franchise tag to K Nick Folk.

It's the non-exclusive tag. The Jets cleared a ton of salary cap room under first-year GM John Idzik in 2013, impressively and quickly cleansing themselves of the Mike Tannenbaum era. Thus, they're able to commit roughly $3.5 million in cap space to Folk, who banged home 33-of-36 field goal tries last season. The sides will likely now work on a long-term agreement. Folk turned 29 in November.

Free agent K Nick Folk wants to re-sign with the Jets but is going to keep "all the options open."

Folk is coming off a career-year that saw him nail 33-of-36 field goals. He made it clear following the season that he eyes a multi-year deal. The 29-year-old expects to engage in contract talks with the Jets near the end of the month.

Impending free agent K Nick Folk is seeking a multi-year contract.

Folk has been kicking on one-year deals for the Jets the past four seasons. He's coming off the best year of his career, which saw him convert 33-of-36 field goals (91.7 percent). Folk also nailed all three of his kicks from 50-plus yards out. He finished as fantasy's No. 12 kicker.

Jets K Nick Folk is 23-of-23 on field goals this season.

That includes an 11-of-11 mark from 40-49 yards and three straight games with at least three makes. He leads the NFL in field goals made. The piping-hot Folk will be a top-10 fantasy kicking option when the Jets come out of their bye at Buffalo in Week 10.
Mon, Nov 4, 2013 09:49:00 AM

Jets K Nick Folk has six game-winning field goals since 2010.

Folk's latest triumph was a 43-yarder as time expired to beat the Falcons Monday night. He also beat the Bucs in Week 1 with a 48-yard boot. Folk is 11-of-11 on the year, including a 6-of-6 mark from 40-plus. Still, fantasy owners should be looking for kickers that play in more consistent offenses. The Jets have been held to 20 points or less in four of their five games.
