Jets RT Breno Giacomini (back) has been ruled out for Week 14.

Brent Qvale, who started a game and saw plenty of snaps at right tackle early in the season, will get the nod this week. It is just another blow for a spiraling team.

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) is questionable for Week 14.

Wilkerson missed Wednesday's practice, but he got in limited work the rest of the week. He will likely play, but he has not been an impact player this season.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes wrote "there's no guarantee" Jets OC Chan Gailey will be back next season even if coach Todd Bowles keeps his job.

Gailey, 64, said has no plans to retire or resign, so the only way he is not running the offense next season is if he is fired. The calls for that exact scenario have picked up in the second half of a dreadful offensive season, but Gailey said he is not concerned. "I've been through this enough times," Gailey said. "You can't let it affect who you are, and what you're trying to get done." A proven coordinator whose offense overachieved last season, firing Gailey would be a short-sighted decision.

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

Forte is ready to rock for Sunday's mouthwatering matchup with the 49ers.
Dec 8 - 6:07 PM

Jets placed C Nick Mangold on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

It's just a formality as Mangold has already been ruled out for the rest of the season. Wesley Johnson will finish out the year at center for the Jets.
Dec 8 - 2:57 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets are shutting C Nick Mangold (ankle) down for the rest of the season.

This was the most likely outcome after the team ruled Mangold out for Week 14 and announced he might need surgery. One month shy of his 33rd birthday, Mangold is due $8.475 million between salary and bonuses in the final year of his contract next season. Mangold remains a solid center, but probably won't be back at that price after struggling through injury in 2016.
Dec 8 - 1:51 PM

Jets WR Devin Smith is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Activated from the PUP list a month ago, Smith has yet to be active this season. The No. 37 overall pick of last year's draft, Smith tore his ACL almost exactly one year ago. It's going to be hard for him to contribute behind Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa, and Bryce Petty favorite Robby Anderson down the stretch of a lost year, but perhaps he's worth a Dynasty flier.
Dec 8 - 1:35 PM

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 14, and could require surgery.

It's sounding like Mangold's season is most likely over. He could be headed to injured reserve before Sunday's game against the 49ers to free up a roster spot. Wesley Johnson is manning the pivot in Mangold's absence. One month shy of his 33rd birthday, Mangold is signed through 2017.
Dec 8 - 1:23 PM

Jets C Nick Mangold is visiting a foot specialist Thursday.

Mangold suffered a setback returning from his six-game absence last week. It’s never a good sign when players visit with Dr. Robert Anderson. The Jets will turn back to Wesley Johnson if Mangold is shut down for the season.
Dec 8 - 8:31 AM

Jets claimed LB Arthur Brown off waivers from the Jaguars.

Brown barely played during his three-month stint in Jacksonville but will have a chance to prove himself with the Jets over the final month. LB Julian Stanford was waived in the corresponding roster move.
Dec 7 - 5:46 PM

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

Forte has dealt with minor injuries all year. The Jets are managing his reps. Game-flow dependent, Forte is an RB2 for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.
Dec 7 - 5:36 PM

Jets re-signed RB Khiry Robinson.

Robinson was waived-injured ahead of Week 1, as he wasn't completely recovered from his broken leg. Now healthy, he'll be the No. 3 back behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell. Brandon Wilds was also elevated from the practice squad.
Dec 7 - 1:24 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick has been benched.

Bryce Petty will start the final four games of the season after coming on in relief of "FitzMagic" on Monday evening. It appears second-rounder Christian Hackenberg will be the next man up if Petty gets injured. Fitzpatrick was legitimately good in 2015, but reverted to his old ways this season, playing an absurd brand of streetball that resulted in far too many turnovers. Fitz thinks he's Brett Favre, but he's really a poor man's Chad Pennington. Now 34, Fitz should be a useful backup/spot starter for someone in 2017, but it's extremely unlikely he will enter Week 1 with a starting job.
Dec 6 - 4:52 PM

The Jets have no plans to play No. 51 overall pick Christian Hackenberg down the stretch.

The second-rounder will only see playing time if Bryce Petty gets hurt. A team with quarterback problems would normally try to contrive any possible reason to get a second-rounder on the field, but Hackenberg isn't close to ready. It's quite possible he never will be. Hackenberg was a bad player in college, and an immense stretch as a day-two pick.
Dec 6 - 4:38 PM

Jaguars waived LB Arthur Brown.

The 2013 second-round bust had played only seven snaps on defense this season. Sean Porter has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move.
