New York Jets Player News: All Positions

News: Canady (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Canady was considered questionable due to the illness but will be able to play Week 14. The 25-year-old played 71 percent of defensive snaps last week and could see an expanded role again Sunday with Jamal Adams (ankle), Arthur Maulet (calf), Brian Poole (concussion) and Matthias Farley (ribs) all inactive in the secondary.
News: Beachum (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Beachum received the questionable tag after working as a limited practice participant all week, but he's ready to play Week 14. The 30-year-old should take up his usual starting role protecting Sam Darnold's blindside.
News: Anderson (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against Miami.
Impact: Anderson was dealing with a shoulder injury that deemed him questionable for the contest. Now officially healthy, he's expected to draw the start at one of the defensive end positions for the contest.
News: Edoga (knee) won't play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Edoga was deemed doubtful ahead of Week 14 with an MCL sprain, so this news isn't quite surprising. With the 2019 third-round pick officially inactive for the third straight game, Brandon Shell is expected to continue to start at the right tackle position.
News: McLendon (knee/hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: McLendon was listed as questionable after working as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but he's good to go for Week 14. The 33-year-old should serve in his usual starting role versus Miami.
News: Farley (ribs) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Farley didn't practice this week and was considered doubtful to play, so it's no surprise to see him not suiting up. Jamal Adams (ankle) is also sidelined as Darryl Roberts is expected to work at safety Sunday.
News: Roberts is expected to start at safety Sunday against the Dolphins, dddd reports.
Impact: Jamal Adams (ankle) is inactive Week 14, and Roberts is expected to take over at free safety while Marcus Maye moves to strong safety. Roberts played nearly every defensive snap through the first eight games at cornerback, but he played only eight defensive snaps over the last four games due to a calf injury. The 29-year-old also filled in a safety last season for the Jets.
News: Powell is in line to start at running back in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Impact: This was the expected outcome after the Jets downgraded Le'Veon Bell (illness) from questionable to out for the Week 14 matchup, but it's at least reassuring for those deploying Powell in the lineups to know that the 31-year-old will be on the field for the Jets' first snap of the day. Though Powell will start and projects to lead the team's backfield Sunday, Ty Montgomery and Josh Adams should also have roles in the game plan and could earn increased snaps as the contest unfolds, depending on how they perform in their initial opportunities. Powell has seen the most consistent use of the reserve trio when Bell has exited the field this season, rushing 32 times for 125 yards (3.9 per carry) and catching four passes for 17 yards in 10 games.
News: Worrilow (quadriceps) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Worrilow was only able to log limited practice time throughout the week, so his absence isn't surprising. The 29-year-old has played just one game this season. Look for B.J. Bello to handle the depth linebacker snaps and special teams reps for Week 14.
News: Adams (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Adams was unable to practice all week, and came into the game with a doubtful tag, so his absence isn't a surprise. It will be his first game missed of the season, and in his stead, Black Countess and Darryl Roberts are the main beneficiaries to see an uptick in snaps.
News: Thomas (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Thomas continues to see his share of snaps in the Jets offense, along with fellow receivers Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder, but of late his ceiling has been limited, with the 31-year-old - who hasn't scored a TD in 10 games to date -- having totaled nine catches (on 13 targets) for 89 yards over his last three outings.
News: Griffin (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Griffin is out there if you need him this week and figures to see his share of targets Sunday, coming off a Week 13 effort against the Bengals, in which he hauled in five of his seven looks for 30 yards. In his two outings prior to that, Griffin found the end zone in back-to-back contests, while overall he's made five trips to the end zone through 12 games.
News: Montgomery is expected to take on an increased snap count Sunday against the Dolphins with lead back Le'Veon Bell (illness) ruled out for the contest, Rich Cimini of reports.
Impact: Cimini notes that the second option on the Jets' depth chart, Bilal Powell, will likely see the most significant uptick in snaps/touches while Bell is sidelined, but there should still be some extra work to go around for Montgomery and Josh Adams as both players move up a spot in the pecking order. Montgomery, who has put up 114 total yards across 27 touches (19 carries, eight receptions) this season, still represents little more than a desperation play in the majority of fantasy leagues.
News: Powell could be in line for a significant boost in playing time Sunday against the Dolphins after the Jets ruled lead back Le'Veon Bell (illness) out for the contest.
Impact: Powell is still expected to share snaps out of the backfield with Ty Montgomery, but Rich Cimini of hinted Friday the 31-year-old would stand to be the primary beneficiary while Bell is inactive. Powell has just 139 total yards in 2019, but he's averaged at least four yards per carry in each of the prior seven seasons and has proven to be a difference maker when given opportunities in the past. The well-traveled Montgomery, meanwhile, has a total of 248 rushing yards with three different teams across the past two seasons.
News: Bell (illness) was downgraded to out ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: After Bell was unable to practice Thursday or Friday, it became apparent he was in serious jeopardy of missing Sunday's game. The Jets took the drama out of the decision early, ruling Bell out for Week 14 after re-evaluating him Saturday. According to Rich Cimini of, Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery are the top candidates to shoulder the load while Bell is out, with the former likely representing the better option for fantasy purposes. Powell has carried the ball just 32 times for 125 yards to go along with four catches for 14 receiving yards this season, but he's out-snapped Montgomery each of the last six weeks, albeit by a marginal amount.
News: The Jets have labeled Beachum (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Impact: Beachum was limited at practice all week and looking like a true game-time decision. Connor McDermott would presumably be in line to protect quarterback Sam Darnold's blindside should Beachum ultimately get ruled out.
News: Worrilow (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Dolphins.
Impact: After watching Wednesday's practice from the sidelines, Worrilow got some limited-work in the rest of the week. He has been sidelined since getting injured during his first game after signing with the team Nov. 5. Confirmation on his status will come closer to kickoff.
News: The Jets have deemed Farley (ribs) as doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Dolphins.
Impact: Farley failed to practice all week, so it would be surprising if he ended up getting the green light for Sunday's contest. If he does ultimately get ruled out look for Blake Countess and Bennett Jackson to see some increased reps providing depth at safety.
News: Edoga (knee) has been given a doubtful designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: Edoga is two weeks removed from suffering an MCL sprain, so a return Sunday would certainly be ahead of schedule. He was unable to practice all week, so his doubtful designation seems a little optimistic at this point. Still, confirmation on his status will come closer to game time. Brandon Shell is in line to replace Edoga at right tackle should he indeed get ruled out.
News: Canady (illness) is officially questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins.
Impact: Canady returned to practice in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday after being sidelined Wednesday. Although he appears to be trending in the right direction, his status Sunday will depend on how he is feeling closer to kickoff.
