Jets G/T Oday Aboushi's roster spot is in "serious jeopardy."

Aboushi opened up camp in a competition for the right guard job, but he quickly fell behind Willie Colon and could be falling off the roster. A one-game suspension to start the year certainly does not help his chances. The 2013 fifth-rounder started 10 games at left guard last season.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Chris Ivory is "primed for a career year."

Cimini says 27-year-old Ivory has had his best camp in three years with the Jets and has clearly worked on his pass-game chops. Ivory is the crystal-clear lead dog in the Jets' backfield and could see "about 20 touches per week" with 3-4 looks in the passing game. Not only is Ivory the favorite for early-down duties between the 20s, he also has a stranglehold on goal-line work. Deservedly, Ivory's ADP has soared three full rounds into the fifth since the start of August.

Jets signed QB Josh Johnson.

The veteran retread will be a live body for the Jets' final two preseason games.

Free agent QB Josh Johnson is working out for the Jets on Thursday.

The Jets signed Matt Flynn after Geno Smith suffered a broken jaw, but Flynn is still sidelined by a hamstring injury. With the third preseason game approaching, perhaps New York wants another arm to take snaps off Bryce Petty. Johnson was cut by the Bengals this week.

Chris Owusu (concussion) has been cleared to practice.

Owusu missed two weeks with his concussion. He should be active for Saturday's preseason game. Owusu was playing in three-wide sets ahead of Jeremy Kerley prior to going down.

Second-year OG Dakota Dozier isn't expected to make the Jets' 53-man roster.

Dozier was a #DraftTwitter favorite last year, and the Jets selected him in the fourth round. He didn't play a single snap as a rookie and has fallen out of favor under a new Jets regime. Some believed Dozier (6'4/313) had the skills to develop into a long-term starter at guard after playing left tackle in college.

Chris Ivory says he's been doing a "lot more" in the passing game this summer.

"We did the same stuff with the last coordinator, but the ball wasn't getting to me as much," Ivory said. "Now it's getting to me more. Now, I guess, people can see I can catch the ball." Coach Todd Bowles has been impressed with Ivory's camp. "I knew he was a good player, (but) I didn't know he was as fast as he was," Bowles said. "He's got very good feet. Chris has got very good quickness." Ivory is never going to be Darren Sproles, but even a tiny uptick in receptions could put him squarely on the RB2 radar.

Bengals released QB Josh Johnson.

The well-traveled veteran was a camp arm. Now 29, Johnson hasn't attempted a regular season pass since 2011.

Jets TE Jace Amaro's recovery from a sprained shoulder is going slower than expected.

"Every day it’s been getting better. It’s just a really slow process," said Amaro. "It’s just frustrating. I just want to get out there and be able to play." Originally expected back for the regular season opener, it now appears Amaro could miss regular season games.

Jets second-round pick Devin Smith (ribs, lung) is not expected to be ready for Week 1.

Smith's timetable was set at 4-6 weeks on August 1. He should return by Week 3. Look for Quincy Enunwa to open the year as the Jets' No. 3 receiver behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. The Jets will run a ton of four- and five-wide sets under Chan Gailey, so Smith should have a role on the perimeter waiting for when he returns. He'll need to get up to speed, though.

Jets OLB Quinton Coples said he expects more opportunities to rush the passer this season.

According to Pro Football Focus, Coples dropped back into coverage on 60 of his 708 snaps last year. "I have a lot less responsibility of covering. We have a great secondary, so they don’t really need me as much — if at all," Coples said. Despite the added coverage responsibility, Coples still managed 6.5 sacks last season, the highest total of his career.

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday.

Wilkerson got in some work in team drills, and coach Todd Bowles said he will play in the third preseason game barring any setbacks. Wilkerson has been sidelined since August 2.
Aug 24 - 9:03 AM

Jets OT Ben Ijalana suffered a sprained MCL in Friday's preseason game against the Falcons.

If Ijalana avoids surgery, he'll be looking at a 2-to-3 week recovery period. The backup tackle played just two regular season snaps last year.
Aug 23 - 11:56 AM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini said second-year tight end Jace Amaro is "on the hot seat."

Cimini added that Amaro has "a lot to prove after a so-so rookie season." Unfortunately there isn't much Amaro can do to improve his stock while he's out with a sprained shoulder. Red flags were raised a few weeks ago when Amaro was listed as the third-string tight end on the Jets' preseason depth chart.

Jets RB Daryl Richardson suffered a concussion in the team's second preseason game Friday night.

Richardson took a big hit at the end of his only run of the night. He was down on the field for a couple minutes before being taken straight to the locker room. Richardson will have to pass through concussion protocol before he returns to practice.
