The Jets have ruled CB Sauce Gardner out for Sunday's game against the Eagles with a concussion. That leaves New York without its top two corners, as D.J. Reed had already been ruled out. That obviously improves the matchup for Philly WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Gardner's issue didn't show up on the injury report until he missed practice Friday and was initially listed as an illness. A Week 7 bye will help Gardner's chances of not missing further game time.

The Jets have ruled CB D.J. Reed (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. The team also lists CB Sauce Gardner as questionable with an illness, but HC Robert Saleh expects him to play, according to Pro Football Talk.

The Jets have ruled CB D.J. Reed (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We'll see if he can make it through the league protocol ahead of a Week 6 meeting with the Eagles.

Jets LB Quincy Williams left Sunday's loss to the Cowboys with a knee injury. HC Robert Saleh after the game would only say that Williams is being evaluated. We'll see about his status for Week 3 against the Patriots.

The Jets are signing former Packers S Adrian Amos to a one-year deal worth "up to" $4 million, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. That's likely enough money to give Amos a shot at winning a starting job. But it's less than the 2023 cap hit for S Chuck Clark, whom the Jets acquired from the Ravens in March for a 2024 seventh-round pick. S Jordan Whitehead got a one-year $5.25 million contract from the Jets in free agency. We'll see how the Jets sort their safeties through the summer, but we're not currently projecting Amos to start in our 2023 IDP rankings.

The Jets spent the 15th overall pick on Edge Will McDonald IV. McDonald posted a pair of double-digit sack seasons across five years at Iowa State. (He redshirted in 2018.) McDonald delivered a lackluster 40 time (4.75 seconds) for his size (239 pounds), though, producing a 31st-percentile speed score among edge players. He joins a Jets defense that could use some juice on the edge, with last year's first-round pick Jermaine Johnson and Carl Lawson as the top incumbents. See where McDonald landed in our pre-draft IDP rookie rankings.

The Jets and LB Quincy Williams have agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Incentives could push the total value to $21 million. Either way, it signals continued starter duty for Williams. And it's particularly noteworthy because Williams' playing time fluctuated each of the past two years. He closed out 2022 playing more than 80% of snaps in five of the final six games, including more than 90% in each of the final two. This contract makes it look like we can expect more of the same, which boosts the IDP outlook for the 26-year-old (until Aug. 28). Check out where Williams sits in our dynasty LB rankings after this boost.

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.
