Jace Amaro is in the league's concussion protocol.

Amaro should be considered questionable, at best, for Week 13. The rookie tight end has just two total catches over his past three games.
Nov 25 - 6:32 PM

Speaking in a Thursday conference call, Jets coach Rex Ryan said he had yet to decide on his starting quarterback for Week 13.

Michael Vick apparently suffered wrist and ankle injuries in Monday's loss. Confusingly, Ryan said his decision "won't be injury-related." Seeing what Geno Smith can do over the season's final five games would make the most sense, but reports have suggested Ryan is going to stick with Vick.

ESPN New York confirms Jets coach Rex Ryan is planning to stick with Michael Vick at quarterback for Week 13.

The New York Daily News had a similar report Tuesday morning. Vick was depressingly bad in Monday night's neutral-site loss to the Bills, and has just 17 completions over his past two starts. With the Jets' season long in the gutter, it's a bit surprising they aren't giving Geno Smith another looksee over the year's final five games. It's hard to believe Vick will last under center through Week 17.

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson is undergoing an MRI on his toe.

Wilkerson suffered the injury in Monday's blowout loss to the Bills. It's obviously not a good sign that he's required an MRI, but it could just be out of an abundance of caution. Toe injuries can be very tricky. Wilkerson's status will be updated at some point this week.

According to the New York Daily News, Rex Ryan wants to start Michael Vick in Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Beat writer Manish Mehta couches his report by saying Ryan had to clear his previous decision to change quarterbacks previously with GM John Idzik and owner Woody Johnson. "Override this time is possible too," Mehta says. There's also the issue of Vick's calf, which isn't considered a serious issue but could give the front office an out if they want to see what Geno Smith has over the final five meaningless games. Although Vick was nothing short of atrocious on Monday night, we'd still prefer him to get the nod if we own Percy Harvin or Eric Decker.

Coach Rex Ryan said he doesn't know who he'll start at quarterback in Week 13.

Michael Vick looked lost on the field and was yanked during the third quarter of Monday night's ugly 38-3 loss to the Bills. Geno Smith had previously lost his job after going 1-7 as the starter. No matter who starts next week, the Dolphins D/ST will be a preferred fantasy play in a Monday night game at the Meadowlands.

Jeremy Kerley caught five passes for 66 yards in Week 12 against the Bills.

Kerley got the majority of his yardage on a 28-yard catch in the fourth quarter. He finished with five targets, behind only Eric Decker. No higher than the No. 3 option, Kerley remains off the fantasy radar.
Nov 24 - 11:33 PM

Eric Decker had four catches for 63 yards in Monday night's Week 12 loss against the Bills.

He was targeted a team-high eight times. Decker dropped what would have been a 69-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He still looks limited by his hamstring issue despite coming of the Jets' bye. Decker will be a low-end WR3 against the Dolphins next week.
Nov 24 - 11:31 PM

Percy Harvin was held to one catch for two yards in Week 12 against the Bills.

Harvin was shut down by Bills CB Corey Graham. The Jets offensive line allowed seven sacks, and he couldn't get anything going downfield. Harvin finished with just five targets. With the Jets considering making another change at quarterback, he should be avoided as more than a WR3 for next week's game with Miami.
Nov 24 - 11:21 PM

Chris Johnson rushed seven times for 40 yards and caught three passes for 22 yards in Monday night's Week 12 loss to the Bills.

Johnson had one of his better games, but the majority of his yardage didn't come until the second half. He's averaging 10 touches over the last three weeks, and continues to play in passing situations over Chris Ivory. Johnson will be just an RB4 option for a matchup with Miami in Week 13.
Nov 24 - 10:55 PM

Chris Ivory was held to seven carries for 31 yards in Monday night's Week 12 loss to Buffalo.

He added three catches for seven yards. Ivory was effective on limited touches, but the Jets were forced to abandon the run and couldn't get anything going against the Bills. The Jets have got Chris Johnson more involved over the last three games, and removed Ivory on all third downs. Ivory will be a touchdown-dependent RB3 in Week 13 against Miami.
Nov 24 - 10:46 PM

Geno Smith completed 10-of-12 passes for 89 yards in Monday night's loss to the Bills.

Smith took over after Michael Vick was benched in the third quarter. He completed his first eight passes, but was mostly limited to check downs and took two sacks. The Jets have yet to announce who will start next week. Smith won't be on the QB2 radar even if he regains his job.
Nov 24 - 10:24 PM

Jace Amaro left Monday night's Week 12 game against the Bills with a head injury.

Amaro will likely need to pass concussion protocols before he's cleared to return. The Jets will go with Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld in two tight end sets.
Nov 24 - 9:39 PM

Michael Vick was benched in the third quarter of Monday night's game against the Bills.

Vick was pulled after throwing an interception to Bills S Duke Williams. He appeared to suffer an injury on the previous play, and the Jets let Geno Smith handle mop-up duties. Vick struggled to move the offense before exiting, completing just 7-of-19 passes for 76 yards. Coach Rex Ryan declined to announce who will start next week in his post-game press conference.
Nov 24 - 9:19 PM

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson was forced from Monday night's game against the Bills with a toe injury.

He's been ruled out for the rest of the game. Leger Douzable has replaced Wilkerson opposite Sheldon Richardson.
