Date: Team: Pos:

Matt Forte (knee) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

The Jets were just managing Forte's reps on Wednesday. He'll be good to go as an RB2 against the Seahawks' typically elite defense.

Eric Decker (shoulder) has yet to undergo an MRI.

It's unclear what the Jets are waiting for. Decker missed practice again on Thursday. Coach Todd Bowles has said he hopes the injury lingers for only one week. It's unclear what that means with regards to his Week 4 status. Fantasy owners need to plan on Decker sitting against the Seahawks.
Sep 29 - 1:45 PM

Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

Decker was on the field, but he did not even stretch with the team. His absence is not surprising considering he was headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's session. It is extremely unlikely he suits up this week. Quincy Enunwa should see a big bump in targets with Decker sidelined, and he is available in a ton of leagues.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the team will "make sure" Brandon Marshall gets the ball.

"I’m sure (defenses are) paying attention to him; they were paying attention to him last year," Bowles said. "We just have to find better ways to get him the ball." Marshall does have 27 targets through three games, but he has caught just 12 of those for 160 yards and, most concerningly, zero touchdowns. Marshall places the blame on the offense "trying to be scientists" instead of just playing. With Eric Decker looking likely to miss some time with a shoulder injury, Marshall will have to be more effective moving forward.

Jets re-signed WR/KR Jeremy Ross.

With Jalin Marshall likely to miss some time with a shoulder injury, Ross will help out on kick returns. He also adds depth to a banged up receiver corps.
Sep 29 - 9:38 AM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) got in a full practice Wednesday.

Marshall only managed 27 yards in a horrendous day for the passing game Sunday, but he did not look any worse for wear. This full practice confirms he escaped the game without suffering any setbacks. He will play this week, and with Eric Decker looking likely to miss, Marshall should see a ton of targets. Even in a tough matchup with the Seahawks, he will remain a solid WR2.
Sep 29 - 9:28 AM

Jets CB Darrelle Revis injured his ankle in practice Wednesday.

He was listed as DNP. Coach Todd Bowles said the injury is not a concern, and Revis was walking without a limp in the locker room after practice, although his right ankle was taped up. At this point, he should be expected to play.
Sep 29 - 9:25 AM

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "concerned" about Eric Decker's shoulder injury.

Decker is headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's practice. Per Cimini, the injury "sounds like it could be serious." Fantasy owners should be prepared to be without Decker this week and maybe much longer. Last week's loss to Kansas City ended Decker's six-game touchdown streak.
Sep 28 - 5:37 PM

Jets DE Lawrence Thomas has a torn labrum in his shoulder.

The Jets are waiting to see if he needs surgery. If he doesn't, Thomas would still be sidelined multiple weeks. The UDFA is headed to injured reserve.
Sep 28 - 3:35 PM

Jets WR Jalin Marshall (shoulder) is expected to miss multiple weeks with a torn labrum.

Marshall is the Jets' No. 4 receiver. With Marshall out and Eric Decker (shoulder) in doubt, Quincy Enunwa and Brandon Marshall will have to carry the load at receiver. Robby Anderson and Charone Peake round out the depth chart.
Sep 28 - 3:30 PM

Matt Forte (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Forte simply needs some R&R. He'll be ready for Sunday against Seattle.
Sep 28 - 3:29 PM

Coach Todd Bowles said Eric Decker aggravated his shoulder injury in the Week 3 loss to the Chiefs, and it's "worse" than it was before the game.

Decker didn't practice Wednesday and needs an MRI. This doesn't sound good for his chances of playing Sunday against the Seahawks. If Decker can't go, Quincy Enunwa will be the No. 2 behind Brandon Marshall.
Sep 28 - 3:26 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

Bilal Powell hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 41 yards and rushed four times for 30 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

With the Jets in comeback mode in the second half, Powell saw plenty of targets down the stretch and actually ended up leading the team in catches and receiving yards. He was more involved on third downs and in obvious passing situations this week, but Matt Forte remains the clear lead back. Powell is just a handcuff at this point.
