Jets placed WR Clyde Gates on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Gates separated his left shoulder in Sunday's loss. Injuries in the Jets' receiver corps had forced the third-year speedster into heavy snaps (140), but predictably, he caught only 12 passes in six games. He committed three drops in the process. Gates is not an effective NFL player, but he's signed through 2014 in New York.

Jets WR Clyde Gates caught five balls for 36 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to Pittsburgh.

Gates is serving as the Jets' No. 3 receiver behind Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley during Santonio Holmes' (hamstring) absence. Gates has no fantasy value.

Clyde Gates (knee) is questionable for Week 5 against the Falcons.

Gates was downgraded from limited to "DNP" on Saturday and will be a game-time decision. If active, he'll serve as the No. 3 receiver behind Stephen Hill (probable, concussion) and Jeremy Kerley.
Sat, Oct 5, 2013 06:40:00 PM

Clyde Gates caught two passes for 42 yards in New York's Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

Forced into heavy snaps — and eight targets — with Jeremy Kerley (concussion) sidelined, Gates turned in a brutal, drop-filled performance. It was the kind of night that makes you question (again) why he's still on an NFL roster. Gates won't make it through the year in New York if he continues to play like he did Thursday.

Jets WR Clyde Gates has been "one of the stars of camp" so far.

It's becoming an annual tradition for Gates to star in training camp and then flame out when it counts. Those 4.37 wheels aren't nearly as effective when the hitting goes live. Gates is a good bet to stick on the final roster thanks to Santonio Holmes' foot woes, but he's just a weak situational deep threat.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 08:58:00 AM

Jets WR Clyde Gates was declared done for the day in Week 17 with a head injury.

Gates battled a concussion late in the season, so it's fair to wonder if he suffered another one. A 2011 fourth-round pick by the division rival Dolphins, Gates latched on with the Jets after Miami's final cuts and wound up playing significant snaps in New York, mostly due to injuries. The raw, deep-threat prospect finished the season with 16 catches for 224 yards and no touchdowns.
Sun, Dec 30, 2012 02:58:00 PM

Clyde Gates caught three passes for a team-leading 65 yards in New York's Week 16 loss to the Chargers.

Today was just the second time all year Gates cleared 30 yards. Whether or not the former fourth-round pick is back with the Jets next season will depend on if GM Mike Tannenbaum is retained.
Sun, Dec 23, 2012 08:29:00 PM

Clyde Gates (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Saturday and is officially listed as questionable for Week 15 on Monday night versus the Titans.

Gates did not practice at all on Thursday or Friday and hasn't played at all since Thanksgiving night against the Patriots. The speedy receiver still has to pass another concussion test, though, so he'll be a game-time decision. Gates isn't a fantasy option.
Sat, Dec 15, 2012 01:13:00 PM

Jets WR Clyde Gates (concussion) has not resumed practicing.

Gates has not been cleared despite suffering his concussion on Thanksgiving. He's missing a prime opportunity for snaps with the Jets' receiving corps decimated.
Thu, Dec 13, 2012 11:35:00 AM

Jets declared WR Clyde Gates, QB Tim Tebow, DL Damon Harrison, S Eric Smith, OG Caleb Schlauderaff, CB Aaron Berry, and OLB Ricky Sapp inactive for Week 13.

The Jets will hope for no butt-fumbles this week. If another one occurs against the Cardinals and injures Mark Sanchez, they'd have to turn to Greg McElroy.
Sun, Dec 2, 2012 11:45:00 AM

Jets WR Clyde Gates (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 13 versus the Cardinals.

While Chaz Schilens (concussion) is limited in practice for the second straight day, Gates has yet to take the field this week. He must be having a tough time passing his baseline test. None of the Jets receivers is an advisable fantasy play versus a strong pass defense.
Thu, Nov 29, 2012 01:24:00 PM

Coach Rex Ryan confirmed that WR Clyde Gates sustained a concussion versus the Patriots Thursday night.

Gates left just before halftime, playing 29-of-72 snaps. Stephen Hill led the Jets with 46 snaps while Jeremy Kerley played 45 and Chaz Schilens 40. Gates will have 10 days to gain clearance for Week 13 versus the Cardinals.
Fri, Nov 23, 2012 10:49:00 AM

Clyde Gates exited Thursday night's game against the Patriots with a potential head injury.

Gates was involved in a collision with Patriots CB Kyle Arrington just before halftime. Both players were shaken up on the play, but Gates suffered the brunt of the hit. He walked off the field with the training staff.
Thu, Nov 22, 2012 09:58:00 PM

Clyde Gates started the Jets' Week 11 win over the Rams, catching one pass for 10 yards.

Gates also rushed once for 12 yards. Gates' first "start" of the year came at the expense of ineffective rookie Stephen Hill. Gates occasionally makes an impact in the Jets' dysfunctional offense, but couldn't be further from WR5 consideration.
