Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

ASJ is looking doubtful for Week 7, though he wouldn't be a TE2 even if he plays.
Oct 20 - 1:27 PM

Jets declared TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, ILB David Harris, QB Christian Hackenberg, QB Bryce Petty, WR Jeremy Butler, CB Nick Marshall, and OT Brandon Shell inactive for Week 6 against the Cardinals.

Seferian-Jenkins was listed as questionable with an ankle injury. Harris' consecutive games streak ends at 121 as he's out with a hamstring issue.
Oct 17 - 7:10 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 6.

The Jets limited him throughout the week. Seferian-Jenkins should play after making his Jets debut in Week 5. He's expected to see more targets with Eric Decker (shoulder) done for the year.
Oct 15 - 4:22 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) was limited in Friday's practice.

Seferian-Jenkins didn't practice Wednesday, but has been limited the last two days. He remains on track to play Monday night. Seferian-Jenkins is expected to see more targets with Eric Decker (shoulder) out, but shouldn't be in Week 6 lineups.
Oct 14 - 5:21 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) returned to practice Thursday.

He was officially "limited." This practice should put him on track to play. ASJ is expected to see more targets with Eric Decker (shoulder) done for the year, but he is still too risky to trust in fantasy lineups.
Oct 13 - 11:22 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

With Eric Decker (shoulder) officially done for the season, Seferian-Jenkins is expected to take on more work, but he can't do it from the trainer's table.
Oct 12 - 3:39 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora expects Austin Seferian-Jenkins to "pick up more targets" with Eric Decker (shoulder) done for the season.

Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa will continue to be the biggest beneficiaries minus Decker, but Seferian-Jenkins played 20-of-58 snaps this past week after being inactive Week 4. La Canfora reports ASJ is "getting settled" in OC Chan Gailey's offense. Gailey hasn't used tight ends in New York, but he's not opposed to them after coaxing career-best years out of Scott Chandler in Buffalo. ASJ isn't yet worth adding in 12-team leagues, but he's on watch lists.
Oct 12 - 11:11 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 17 yards in New York's Week 5 loss to the Steelers.

Making his Sunday debut for Gang Green, ASJ drew one more target than Brandon Bostick. ASJ is a name to file away as a TE2, but nothing more.
Oct 9 - 5:10 PM

Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is active for Week 5 against the Steelers.

It is his first active game with the Jets since being claimed off waivers in late September. New York needs a competent pass catcher at tight end in the worst way, but it is unlikely Seferian-Jenkins is heavily involved right out of the gate. He is a name to monitor in deeper two-TE leagues.
Oct 9 - 11:58 AM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'has a chance" to play Week 5.

The Jets have yet to complete a pass to a tight end this season, so ASJ should have a shot to carve out a role immediately. That said, he has disappointed at every turn so far in his career. He is at best a bench stash in the deepest of two-TE leagues.

Oct 6 - 12:14 PM

ESPN New York doesn't expect TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins to be active this week.

Seferian-Jenkins only got in two practices after getting claimed this week. He needs more time in Chan Gailey's scheme to have a role in the offense. Seferian-Jenkins should make his Jets debut in Week 5.
Oct 1 - 7:30 PM

Brandon Marshall is planning to mentor newly-acquired Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

"I've been talking to Austin for a week now, even before this even happened," Marshall said. "When I saw what he was going through I reached out to him. We've been talking for a while. He is a great talent. When I heard we claimed him I was like 'This is God sent.' If he needs me, I am there. I've already connected him with the right people in the city if he needs them. Guys need second chances. When you make a mistake, it doesn’t mean you are a bad person. You need people to believe in you, and sometimes a fresh start is a good start." Marshall had numerous off-field run-ins before he got to New York and Chicago, but he's cleaned up his act considerably and has become a voice for mental-health awareness. ASJ is still just 24 (on Thursday).

Jets claimed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins off waivers from the Bucs.

Jets OC Chan Gailey has a reputation for "not using tight ends," but he also has a reputation for maximizing talent, which Seferian-Jenkins obviously has in spades despite all of his issues off the field. Seferian-Jenkins was popped for DUI last week, leading to his release from the Bucs. Picking him up is an extremely low-risk, high-upside maneuver by Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. Assuming Seferian-Jenkins is intent on continuing his football career, he should be able to earn a role in the offense by the middle of next month. ASJ still lacks re-draft value, but he remains a hold in Dynasty leagues.
Sep 26 - 4:17 PM

Updating a previous item, Austin Seferian-Jenkins is still on waivers.

NFL Network reported that Seferian-Jenkins cleared waivers, but teams have until Monday to make a claim. Either way, it's unlikely anyone picks up the $1.9 million left on ASJ's rookie deal. Seferian-Jenkins has two DUIs in the last four years.
