The Jets listed DT Quinnen Williams (calf) as a limited participant for Monday's practice. That's notable because Williams missed Sunday's loss to the Lions after sitting out practice all last week. We'll watch Williams' status leading up to the Thursday night meeting with the Jaguars.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Jets DT Quinnen Williams (calf) will be inactive for today’s game against the Lions. Williams is officially questionable but missed practice all week. His absence hurts the Jets’ run D (and the pass rush, which is obviously good news for D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Jets DT Quinnen Williams (calf) is "truly a 50-50 call" for today's game against the Lions. He adds that the team won't make that decision until pregame warmups. This indicates plenty of risk for a guy who missed practice all week, even if he turns up active. We've knocked Williams further down our Week 15 IDP rankings.

Jets DL Quinnen Williams (calf) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He missed practice all week after leaving the loss to the Bills early, so he’ll carry risk even if active. We’ll watch Williams’ status up until inactives arrive Sunday morning

Jets DT Quinnen Williams left in the 1st half of today's game against the Bills with a left-calf injury. He's questionable to return.

The Broncos plan to start QB Brett Rypien in Sunday’s game against the Jets. QB Russell Wilson will be out with his injured hamstring. That decision was reportedly made after a Saturday throwing session for Wilson. This matchup already looked good for the Jets’ D; it certainly doesn’t look any worse now. Check out the updated projections for the Rypien-led Broncos.

Jets LB Quincy Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That likely means a playing-time boost for LB Kwon Alexander, who figures to operate 2nd to C.J. Mosley at the position.

Jets LB Quincy Williams left Sunday's loss to the Bengals with an ankle injury. If he misses further time, Kwon Alexander looks like the top candidate to join C.J. Mosley in starter-level playing time. We'll see about the diagnosis.

Jets DT Quinine Williams (foot), EDGE John Franklin-Myers (toe, quad) and S Jordan Whitehead (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. All 3 finished the week with a full practice, which bodes well for their chances. We'll check their status Sunday morning.

Jets DT Quinnen Williams left Sunday's win over the Browns with a foot injury. We'll see about the severity and his Week 3 status.

Jets CB D.J. Reed is active for today's game against the Ravens. He entered the day questionable but finished the week with a full Friday practice and should be safe for IDP use.

Jets DC Jeff Ulbrich said this week that the team has a "hard-and-fast" rule about D-linemen playing no more than 30-35 snaps per game, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. The goal is obviously to keep the defensive front fresh throughout the game. The downside for IDP purposes, of course, is that limited playing time for Quinnen Williams, Carl Lawson, John Franklin-Myers and Jermaine Johnson can limit their stat upside. We'll see just how hard-and-fast that rule is, though. Williams exceeded 35 snaps in 10 of his 15 games last season, and he was coming off an offseason foot fracture. For now, we'll treat this more as something to watch in season than a reason to alter draft outlooks -- especially because none of the aforementioned Jets sit too high in the IDP rankings.

The Jets traded up with Tennessee to take EDGE Jermaine Johnson II with the 26th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Johnson played sparingly across 2 seasons at Georgia before transferring to Florida State. He racked up 17.5 tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks over 12 games in his lone season with the Seminoles. Throw in an 89th-percentile speed score at 6'5 and 254 pounds, and Johnson carries attractive IDP upside.

The Jets spent the 4th pick of the NFL Draft on CB Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner. The 6'3 cover man ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the Combine (88th percentile among corners). Gardner grabbed 9 INTs across 3 seasons at Cincinnati but totaled just 99 tackles over 33 games. Don't bet on Gardner being a huge fantasy contributor.

The Jets are signing former Buccaneers S Jordan Whitehead to a 2-year, $14.5 million deal, according to multiple reports. Whitehead spent most of the past 4 years in Tampa Bay's starting lineup, including all 44 of his appearances over the past 3 years. This money says he'll land in the starting lineup with his new team -- likely in place of Marcus Maye, who is also an unrestricted free agent after playing last season on the franchise tag. Whitehead has been a solid tackle collector with the Bucs and should be in a good spot for more of the same with the Jets. S Mike Edwards looks like the best current bet on Tampa Bay's roster to replace Whitehead. We'll see whether the Bucs make further moves at the position, though.

The Jets have placed DT Quinnen Williams on the COVID list, knocking him out for today's game against the Jaguars. That's a big loss for a defense that was already a positive matchup for Jacksonville RB James Robinson.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley (back) and DT Quinnen Williams (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Jaguars.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley (back) and DT Quinnen Williams (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Both players finished the week with a full Friday practice, though, and seem on track to play. We'll confirm their status Sunday morning.
