Bilal Powell (foot) is listed as probable for Week 8.

Powell practiced in full throughout the week. He'll be the Jets' No. 3 running back against the Bills.
Oct 25 - 4:59 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini said New York wants to make Harvin a "downfield threat."

Harvin was used as essentially a pass-catching running back in Seattle, catching balls at or near the line of scrimmage and being asked to make plays himself. The Jets will likely push Harvin downfield more, which should help his fantasy value in the long run. With his role in the offense still unclear, Harvin is a risky fantasy start this week, but his outlook moving forward is a couple shades brighter.
Oct 25 - 9:10 AM

Chris Johnson (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 8.

Johnson practiced in full despite being on the injury report. He isn't a recommended option for Sunday's matchup with Buffalo's top-five run defense.
Oct 24 - 5:13 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) is probable for Week 8 against the Bills.

The Jets managed Decker's practice reps this week for rest purposes. He should be close to fully healthy. Decker is Rotoworld's No. 22 receiver for Week 8.

Chris Johnson (ankle) is on the Week 8 injury report, but practicing in full.

CJ?K is fine. He's not a viable RB3 for Week 8 against the Bills' dominant run defense.
Oct 23 - 4:36 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The Jets are just taking it easy on Decker in practice. He's on the WR2 radar against the Bills.
Oct 23 - 4:34 PM

Coach Rex Ryan said it's "unrealistic" to expect Percy Harvin to play 50 offensive snaps in his Jets' debut Week 8 against the Bills.

Harvin will return kickoffs and possibly punts, but he doesn't know OC Marty Mornhinweg's offense. The Jets will have a couple packages for Harvin on offense, but he's unlikely to play more than 25-30 snaps. It may take a few weeks before Harvin becomes usable in fantasy lineups. It'll be Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley gobbling up the bulk of the work and targets at receiver Sunday.
Oct 22 - 2:34 PM

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

Decker hasn't had any setbacks with his hamstring injury. He should be close to being fully healthy. Decker will be on the WR2 radar against the Bills.
Oct 22 - 2:28 PM

Jets signed WR Jeremy Kerley to a four-year, $16 million extension through 2018.

The deal includes $5.4 million guaranteed. It's a lot of money for a run-of-the-mill slot man. The timing is odd, as the Jets just acquired Percy Harvin, and Kerley is mired in an underwhelming season. Kerley was heading into the final year of his rookie contract, however. The deal almost certainly doesn't include any guaranteed money beyond 2015. The Jets now have each of Kerley, Harvin and Eric Decker signed through 2018. Gang Green is placing a premium on wideout after getting caught short at the position in 2013.
Oct 21 - 2:41 PM

Percy Harvin admits he was frustrated with his role in Seattle, but denies that he has anger-management issues.

"I wanted to get downfield a little bit more," Harvin said of his Seahawks usage. Harvin also said he has "not one" issue with Russell Wilson, and denied refusing to go back into Seattle's Week 6 loss to the Cowboys. We'd expect nothing less than across-the-board denials, but it doesn't mean much. The situation is bound to remain he said/she said. Harvin will begin his Jets tenure as a WR3 with room to grow.
Oct 20 - 1:58 PM

A source tells the Seattle Times that Percy Harvin got into an altercation with Golden Tate during Super Bowl week last season, resulting in a black eye for Tate.

This confirms an initial report from The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein. A source also tells the Seattle Times that Harvin had an altercation with Doug Baldwin in August that resulted in Baldwin getting a cut on his chin. A final straw was reportedly Harvin balking about going back into last week's game against Dallas, possibly angry over not being used more early on. Zierlein was told "Harvin's anger issues are just too much to deal with and he could single handedly bring down team chemistry."

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks had been shopping Percy Harvin for weeks.

Multiple reports suggest Harvin's "anger management issues" led to his trade to the Jets. For the Seahawks, moving on from his contract gets them out of what's left on his $11 million base salary. Harvin has no guaranteed money beyond this year and would have been a release-candidate after the season regardless. It's still an admission of failure from Seattle after they gave up first- and seventh-round picks last year, and a 2014 third-rounder for Harvin. The Seahawks will save $6.47 million in cap space by trading him, which should help towards extending Russell Wilson.
Oct 17 - 7:41 PM

Jets acquired WR Percy Harvin from the Seahawks in exchange for a conditional mid-round draft pick.

Multiple reports suggest Harvin had become a nuisance in the Seahawks' locker room, but he wasn't particularly effective on the field in Seattle, either. The moves leaves the Seahawks with Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse as their top two receivers, while Jets GM John Idzik is using his Seattle ties in an attempt to upgrade Geno Smith's supporting cast. Harvin had just one game over 50 receiving yards this season and reportedly "wasn't viewed as a fit." With Harvin gone, rookie burner Paul Richardson and deep threat Ricardo Lockette are candidates to take over as Seattle's No. 3 receiver. Harvin is due a non-guaranteed $41.5 million over the next four seasons.

Percy Harvin (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 7 at St. Louis.

Harvin was added to the injury report on Thursday when he missed practice with a thigh injury. His availability is now a question mark, though the Seahawks have not shown any outward worry that Harvin would miss the game. The Seahawks-Rams game has a 1PM ET start, so we will know Harvin's status before any games are played on Sunday. TE Luke Willson is also listed as questionable.
Oct 17 - 4:29 PM

Jeff Cumberland caught 3-of-4 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in New York's Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

The score was Cumberland's third of the season, while the three-catch effort was just his third. Cumberland will head into Week 8 the owner of a 15/154/1 line.
