David Nelson is expected to miss Week 5 with a "severe low ankle sprain."

The Jets will turn to a three-receiver set of Eric Decker, Jeremy Kerley, and Greg Salas. Nelson never had fantasy football value in the first place.
Oct 1 - 8:09 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Decker made it through Sunday's loss without any setbacks, playing on 55-of-68 snaps. The Jets are limiting him early in the week, but his status isn't in danger for Week 5. Decker will be a WR2 against the Chargers.
Oct 1 - 2:44 PM

Jets signed FB John Conner.

Conner will replace Tommy Bohanon, who suffered a broken clavicle in Sunday's loss. He spent part of the last two seasons with the Giants and was waived during final cuts.
Sep 30 - 11:57 AM

Coach Rex Ryan said Eric Decker (hamstring) feels better now than he did at this time last week.

Decker was expected to be limited in Sunday's loss to the Lions, but ended up playing on 77.9 percent of the snaps and emerged with a 4-48-1 line on 10 targets. Most importantly, he made it through without setbacks and should be closer to 100 percent for the Week 5 game at San Diego. Despite the tough matchup, Decker's red-zone ability makes him a weekly WR2 candidate.

Jets FB Tommy Bohanon broke his collarbone in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Lions.

Bohanon somehow played through the injury for the entire second half before being diagnosed after the game. The 2013 seventh-rounder will be played on injured reserve. John "The Terminator" Conner has been signed as Bohanon's replacement.
Sep 30 - 8:27 AM

Jets coach Rex Ryan hinted Monday that WR David Nelson's ankle injury could be "significant."

The Jets' Monday signing of Chris Owusu would seem to support that belief. Nelson has managed six receptions for 45 yards through four games, fumbling twice. His loss would not be a major blow to New York's sputtering offense.
Sep 29 - 5:35 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan expressed confidence Monday that CB Dee Milliner (quad, ankle) will play in Week 5 against the Chargers.

Milliner has played just 40 defensive snaps since suffering a high ankle sprain late in the preseason, all in Week 2. He will presumably return as a starter at left corner, with RCB Antonio Allen remaining in the starting lineup and Kyle Wilson covering the slot. Darrin Walls would go back to the bench.
Sep 29 - 5:15 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan confirmed Monday that Geno Smith will remain his starting quarterback in Week 5.

The Jets play the red-hot Chargers next, in San Diego. Ryan promised that the Jets "are going to get it done and Geno is going to be a main reason that we will." Through four weeks, Smith's TD-to-INT ratio stands at 4:5. He'll be in better position to succeed with Eric Decker showing signs of improved health.
Sep 29 - 5:12 PM

Jets signed WR Chris Owusu.

The Jets are shaking up the back end of their receiver corps, also signing T.J. Graham while waiving fourth-rounder Jalen Saunders. Owusu offers depth on special teams and in the slot.
Sep 29 - 3:25 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) played on 53-of-68 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Multiple reports prior to the game said Decker would be a situational player. But his hamstring didn't appear to give him any real problems, allowing a 4-48-1 line on 10 targets. Decker should be more efficient against the Chargers in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 9:34 AM

Jace Amaro caught five passes for 58 yards against the Lions Week 4.

Four of the five catches came as the Jets were chasing the game in the fourth quarter, but it was still a promising performance. Amaro did not have any drops, and made a heady play getting the sideline on a crossing route in the fourth. Amaro now has at least four targets in three of the Jets' first four games, and is on pace for 44 catches for 500 yards this season.
Sep 28 - 5:19 PM

Jeremy Kerley caught one pass for three yards against the Lions Week 4.

Kerley was expected to handle a large workload with Eric Decker "limited." But Decker was not limited, and Kerley only saw three passes thrown his way. Decker will be the focal point of the passing offense when healthy, but Kerley will still see 5-to-8 targets a game as the No. 2 option. Kerley is on pace for 64 catches for 576 yards this season.
Sep 28 - 5:16 PM

Eric Decker caught four passes for 48 yards and a score against the Lions Week 4.

Despite reports before the game he would be limited, Decker led the Jets in targets, and did not appear to be hampered by his balky hamstring. He is likely to be limited again in practice this week, but should be good to go against the Chargers Week 5. Decker is on pace for 56 catches for 816 yards and eight scores his first season in New York.
Sep 28 - 5:09 PM

Chris Johnson rushed six times for 44 yards and a touchdown against the Lions.

Johnson had done next-to-nothing before popping a somewhat fluky 35-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter. Johnson was out-touched 19-8 by Chris Ivory, and it would have been worse had Ivory not dropped several passes. Ivory is clearly the leader in the Jets' backfield, leaving Johnson as a breather-back until Ivory gets hurt. Johnson is on pace for 164 carries for 668 yards and four touchdowns this season.
Sep 28 - 5:04 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 84 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards against the Lions Week 4.

Ivory had 9 carries for 51 yards on the Jets' first drive of the game, but the team inexplicably moved away from him on the next several drives. Ivory did commit a couple bad drops in the passing game, but he is clearly the Jets best bet to move the football. Ivory is on pace for 200 carries for 1,096 yards this season.
