Jeremy Kerley (calf) is listed as probable for Week 15.
There was some fear Kerley wouldn't play early in the week, but he progressed enough to have a chance at a role in four-receiver sets against Dallas. It'll either be Kerley or Kenbrell Thompkins running behind Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Quincy Enunwa on Saturday Night Football. Fri, Dec 18, 2015 01:27:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Kerley's Week 15 status is up in the air. With Devin Smith (ACL) sidelined, Kenbrell Thompkins should see time in four-wide sets.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley's Week 15 status is "up in the air" due to a bruised calf.

With Devin Smith (ACL) on injured reserve and Kerley potentially unavailable for Saturday night's game against Dallas, the Jets may have to turn back to Kenbrell Thompkins in four-receiver sets. Their slot men in those packages are Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa, with Brandon Marshall at flanker.

The Newark Star-Ledger confirms Jeremy Kerley isn’t expected to return next season.

Kerley was limited to punt returns with Quincy Enunwa returning last week. He’s an obvious release candidate at his $2.5M salary. The Jets would leave only $600,000 in dead money by making Kerley a post-June cut.

Jeremy Kerley nabbed two of three targets for 22 yards in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Jaguars.

Kerley hasn’t been able to take advantage of his opportunity with Quincy Enunwa sidelined. He’s not likely to break through against Buffalo on Thursday night.

Jeremy Kerley caught 3-of-4 targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

With Quincy Enunwa suspended, Kerley appeared to be running ahead of Chris Owusu for No. 3 duties. Kerley will have the occasional PPR flourish, but has resoundingly proven to be unworthy of a roster spot, no matter the format.

Jeremy Kerley caught 6-of-11 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

With Eric Decker and Chris Owusu nursing knee injuries, Kerley's role was increased significantly in Chan Gailey's offense. Kerley had a first-quarter drop and dropped another pass early in the fourth quarter. Kerley did catch a short TD late in the game. Doing himself no favors under a coaching staff that doesn't view him as a meaningful weapon, Kerley will go back to the bench whenever Decker and Owusu return.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley is expected to see more snaps with Eric Decker (knee) unlikely to play Week 3 against the Eagles.

Kerley has played just two snaps in two weeks with Decker and Quincy Enunwa dominating the slot-receiver snaps. With both Decker and Chris Owusu (knee) expected to miss, however, Kerley should get more work. He is still not a fantasy option.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 11:25:00 AM

The Newark Star-Ledger believes Jeremy Kerley does not have the characteristics the Jets are looking for in their receivers.

The Jets want all of their wide receivers to play both outside and inside. Kerley is exclusively a slot receiver, and he is not as good a run blocker as Quincy Enunwa and Chris Owusu. Kerley's punt return abilities should keep him active on game days, but he is not a factor on offense. He could end up on the trade block if Devin Smith (ribs) is able to prove his health.

Jeremy Kerley played one snap on offense in New York's Week 1 win over the Browns.

He played two on special teams. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini estimates Kerley was the 44th player on the 46-man game day roster. He's the Jets' No. 5 receiver just 11 months after signing a four-year, $16 million extension. Perhaps Kerley will be shipped off for a conditional draft pick before this year's trade deadline, but his salary makes that unlikely.

Jeremy Kerley (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 1.

Kerley has been fully cleared from his preseason concussion. He’ll open the season as the Jets punt returner. With Quincy Enunwa ahead of him, Kerley doesn't have a clear role on offense. OC Chan Gailey could get Kerley looks in four-wide sets.

Jeremy Kerley (concussion) has yet to be cleared.

Kerley remains week to week. The longtime Jet is without a meaningful role on offense this season.
Thu, Sep 10, 2015 06:27:00 PM

ESPN New York still considers Jeremy Kerley to be on the Jets' roster bubble.

Reporter Rich Cimini would ultimately be "surprised" if Kerley were cut, but believes he lacks a role in Chan Gailey's offense. Kerley's status might be more uncertain were his $2 million salary not guaranteed. Whatever happens, Kerley is well off the fantasy radar. He's missing Thursday's preseason finale as he recovers from a concussion.
Thu, Sep 3, 2015 03:31:00 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger believes Jets WR Jeremy Kerley's roster spot is safe.

Kerley has lost his slot job to Quincy Enunwa, but he still should have a role in four-wide sets and on special teams. Also working is Kerley's favor is his contract. Signed to a four-year deal with $3 million guaranteed last year, cutting Kerley would cost the Jets $800,000 on the 2015 salary cap.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 08:07:00 AM

ESPN New York confirms the Jets coaching staff has downgraded Jeremy Kerley.

Reporter Rich Cimini suggests Kerley may have been "coasting" after signing a new contract, with a minor Achilles injury costing him part of OTAs. With Devin Smith sidelined, Kerley has been playing behind Chris Owusu and Quincy Enunwa in three-wide sets. Kerley’s guaranteed base-salary should secure his roster spot, but 2015 is looking like his last year with the Jets.
