According to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini, the team is "smitten" with second-year WR Quincy Enunwa.

Coach Todd Bowles called the 2014 sixth-round pick a "tweener" due to his 6'2/225 size and above-average blocking skills for a receiver. With Jace Amaro (shoulder) done for the season, Enunwa could have a real role on offense. OC Chan Gailey used four-receiver sets on a league-high 586 snaps from 2010-2012 in Buffalo. Enunwa and Brandon Marshall make for ideal slot players.

Willie Colon has won the Jets' right guard job.

Colon has been far from impressive the past two seasons, but soundly beat out Brian Winters in camp. The Jets are hoping he'll be more effective another year removed from his torn biceps.

Jets placed DL Kevin Vickerson on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

Vickerson is just a situational run stopper, but the Jets could have used him as depth while Sheldon Richardson serves his four-game suspension. Now 32, Vickerson played only 175 for the Chiefs in 2015. He could eventually get cut loose with an injury settlement.

Jets placed TE Jace Amaro (shoulder surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The 23-year-old tight end has a torn labrum. He suffered the injury in the Jets' preseason opener. It's a bitterly disappointing end to what needed to be a big season for a player who underwhelmed as a rookie. Now Amaro will enter his third camp next summer on the hot seat after being the No. 49 overall pick of last year's draft. Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Davis are the next men up on the depth chart. It's a sorry group. Amaro is an end-of-bench type in Dynasty leagues.

Jets coach Todd Bowles hinted that RB Stevan Ridley (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

"We have some quality running backs right now, and they’re all playing good," Bowles said, "so Ridley can take his time and get healthy." Ridley opening the season on the PUP should open a roster spot for Zac Stacy.

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.

The New York Post said Jets RB Chris Ivory is the "unquestioned starter."

Ivory's preseason usage has told the same story. He has dominated carries with the first-team offense, ceding just third-down work to Bilal Powell. With Stevan Ridley (knee) likely headed to the reserve/PUP and Zac Stacy not a real threat, Ivory is a great bet to surpass the 198 carries he saw last season.

Jets DE Leonard Williams (strained muscle behind knee) fully expects to be ready for Week 1.

"Yeah, I'll definitely be ready for Week 1," Williams promised. The plan is to rest Williams' strained knee muscle for the next "5-7 days," but he should get in a practice or two before the opener, and play against the Browns. Williams' early-season availability took on increased importance after Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension. Williams will start versus Cleveland.

Jets DL Sheldon Richardson pleaded not guilty on Monday to resisting arrest and other traffic charges.

A trial has been set for October 5. Richardson was arrested July 14 for his role in an alleged "high-speed road race." Already suspended the first four games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Richardson will likely face another suspension once this matter is resolved.

Rookie DE Leonard Williams has a strained muscle behind his knee.

Williams didn't suffer any ligament damage and shouldn't be on the shelf for long. There's a good chance he'll be ready for the Jets' season opener September 13 versus Cleveland.

X-rays on Leonard Williams' bruised knee came back negative.

He injured himself in Saturday's preseason win over the Giants. Williams will have an MRI on Sunday to make sure it isn't anything serious. If Williams is healthy, he'll open the year as New York's starting right end while Sheldon Richardson serves a four-game suspension.

Chris Ivory picked up 38 yards on six rushes in Saturday’s preseason win over the Giants.

Not a bad day at the office. Ivory did almost all of his damage on the opening drive, burning the G-Men for 35 yards on five touches. The Giants couldn’t get off their blocks fast enough and Ivory made them pay. Ivory remains a non-factor in the passing game but he’s gained enough momentum this preseason to warrant mid-round consideration. He’s certainly going to be the Jets’ preferred option on the goal line this season.

Zac Stacy - RB - Jets

Zac Stacy pounded his way to 60 yards on 13 carries in Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants.

Stacy caught a 24-yard touchdown pass on a play the Giants forgot to defend. The bruising 224-pounder also punched in a two-point conversion. Though he hasn’t improved his position on the team’s depth chart, Stacy has probably done enough to secure a roster spot. He isn’t worth a late-round flyer.
Aug 29 - 10:15 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick played well in Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants, completing 9-of-14 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns.

Fitzpatrick looked nimble as ever, routinely extending plays in the pocket and making a number of nice throws on the run. He looked most comfortable on play-action with his best throw coming on a gorgeous 18-yard touchdown strike to Eric Decker in the first quarter. If Fitzpatrick plays like this in the regular season he'll have no trouble holding off Geno Smith, who is still out with a broken jaw.
Aug 29 - 9:54 PM

Brandon Marshall secured three catches for 33 yards in Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants.

He led the Jets with five targets in the first half. Marshall's longest gain came on a simple 16-yard crossing route. He’ll wrap up this year's preseason slate with four grabs for 79 yards. Marshall is hoping for a bounce-back season after a disappointing year with the Bears in 2014 (61 catches, 721 yards).
