ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini said "the indicators suggest" impending free agent Chris Ivory will not re-sign with New York.
Cimini said Ivory is no better than fourth on the free-agent priority list for the Jets, who also need to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, DE Muhammad Wilkerson and NT Damon Harrison. Ivory admitted there may not be enough cap space to re-sign him last week, and that will be especially true if the Jets have to place the franchise tag on Wilkerson. Even in a strong free agent class, Ivory should get plenty of interest on the open market. Feb 1 - 1:07 PM

Impending free agent RB Chris Ivory said the Jets may not have the cap space to re-sign him.

"They want to bring me back, but, like I said, I think it's about the cap space," Ivory said. "That's going to be the biggest factor as to whether I'm back or not." Ivory has said he wants to return, but ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects he will be priced out of the Jets' range. Despite a puzzling lack of carries in the Week 17 loss which ultimately cost the Jets the playoffs, Ivory set career highs in carries (247), yards (1070) and touchdowns (7). He should get plenty of interest even in a strong free agent class.

Jan 30 - 9:29 AM

Chris Ivory rushed six times for 81 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Bills.

Ivory was surprisingly used as a passing-down-back only against Buffalo after going through a limited practice week due to a knee injury. Stevan Ridley (9-29) was wholly ineffective in the lead back role. Ivory did salvage some fantasy points with a 58-yard run in the third quarter, but ultimately saw very limited usage in a game where Gang Green wound up abandoning the run in the second half. Ivory is an upcoming free agent after posting a 247-1,070-7 rushing line in 2015. Ivory turns 28 this March.
Jan 3 - 4:17 PM

Chris Ivory (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Ivory was limited in Thursday and Friday's practices, but he should be near 100 percent for Sunday's game in Buffalo. Ivory's fantasy outlook gets a bump with Bilal Powell (ankle) not expected to play against the Bills.
Jan 1 - 4:37 PM

Chris Ivory (knee) returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Ivory will be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Bills. With Bilal Powell the more productive back over the past month, Ivory will be a low-end RB2 for the regular season finale.

Chris Ivory (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Ivory went down early in Week 16 but returned after halftime. He should be fine for early-down work against the Bills as the Jets push for a playoff spot.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 03:58:00 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 11 times for 38 yards in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Patriots, adding four receptions for four yards.

Ivory was once again out-played by Bilal Powell, though Ivory out-touched him 15-12. Ivory missed nearly a quarter of action with a knee injury, but it wasn't a factor after halftime. Running on fumes the past few weeks while Powell excels, it will be hard to trust Ivory as a Week 17 fantasy option against the Bills. He's turned into a touchdown-or-bust proposition.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:47:00 PM

Chris Ivory (right knee) returned to New York's Week 16 game against the Patriots after halftime.

Ivory spent the bulk of the second quarter getting treatment, but was ready to rock after the break. His snaps figure to be limited, of course.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 02:33:00 PM

Chris Ivory was forced from the Jets' Week 16 game against the Patriots with a right knee injury, and is questionable to return.

Ivory spent a series or two getting massaged on the sideline before heading to the locker room. It didn't have the looks of an overly serious injury, but it's possible his afternoon is through. Ivory had taken the rock six times for 28 yards before going down. Stevan Ridley is now in the game on early downs, with Bilal Powell leading the Jets' backfield.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 01:57:00 PM

Chris Ivory managed 37 yards on 13 carries and caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards in the Jets' Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

Ivory entered this one ranked fifth in the NFL in rushing and averaging nearly 4.7 yards per carry over his previous five games, and facing a Dallas defense that was gashed by Green Bay for well over 200 rushing yards last Sunday. Rather than capitalize on what appeared to be a plus matchup, Ivory was continuously stuffed and thrown for losses as the Cowboys dominated the Jets' offensive line, particularly in short-yardage situations. Ivory got two carries deep in the red zone on New York's second drive but lost yards on both, including on a 4th-and-one play where Cowboys LE Demarcus Lawrence's backfield penetration forced a turnover on downs. To make matters worse, Ivory was vultured by Bilal Powell on a 12-yard touchdown run. Ivory will remain a boom-bust RB2 when the Jets take on the Patriots in Week 16.
Sat, Dec 19, 2015 11:50:00 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 22 times for 101 yards Week 14 against the Titans.

Ivory set the tone for the game with a couple rumbling runs on the first drive, and he closed out the game with 13 carries for 50 yards in the second half. Ivory flashed his deceptive ability to get the edge all game, and he bounced an inside run to the right sideline for his biggest gain of the day. This was Ivory's first 100-yard performance since Week 6, but he is averaging 4.68 yards per carry over the last five games. Ivory will be a back-end RB1 in a game he should get plenty of volume against the Cowboys next Saturday.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 04:20:00 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 10 times for 47 yards and caught all five of his targets for 22 yards in the Jets' Week 13 win over the Giants.

Ivory got off to a booming start with 37 yards on his first four carries but was used sparingly after losing a first-half fumble to Jason Pierre-Paul. Game flow was also a problem for Ivory as the Jets were forced to air it out in the second half. He still showed flashes of brilliance, including a punishing 20-yard run against Damontre Moore on New York’s second drive of the afternoon. Ivory didn’t get any goal-line work Sunday but that’s been a rarity this year. Look for him to bounce back against the Titans in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 05:04:00 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 21 times for 87 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards in the Jets' Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Ivory was largely bottled up until he busted loose for a 31-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Ivory's rushing efficiency has picked up over his last three games, and he out-touched Bilal Powell 23-to-8 on Sunday. Ivory will remain a borderline RB1 when the Jets face the Giants in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:15:00 PM

Chris Ivory rushed eight times for 36 yards and caught his only target for nine yards in the Jets' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

It was another turbulent afternoon for Ivory who has seemingly run out of gas in the second half of the season. He had just four yards on three rushes in the first half. It looked like he was having trouble getting loose in the early going as he missed part of the first series to get worked on by the training staff. Ivory did contribute a 23-yard run in the third quarter on a nice sidestep but he almost fumbled it on the next play. The Jets found themselves trailing by two touchdowns for most of the second half, which limited Ivory’s involvement. Ivory will have a chance to bounce back against the Dolphins in Week 12. He rushed for a career-high 166 yards against them in Week 4.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 04:51:00 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 18 times for 99 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bills, adding two receptions for 36 additional yards.

Ivory was easily the Jets' best player this evening, and should have gotten more work. Part of it was horrendous play-calling, but Ivory also appeared frequently gassed. It was a much-needed effort from a back who had been stymied for 84 yards on 55 carries (1.53 YPC) over his past three games. Ivory now has 10 days to heal up for a plus matchup with the Texans. He'll remain an RB1.
