Jets RB Michael Carter sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 18. With RB Tevin Coleman out on the COVID list, the Jets are down to RBs Ty Johnson and Austin Walter.

11:33am EST 12/19/21

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. It’ll be his first action since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 11. HC Robert Saleh said this week that Carter will play a "significant role" today. He'd averaged 13 carries and 6.2 targets across his last 6 healthy games. Don’t expect that many targets with Zach Wilson under center, but 13 carries is a fair projection. RBs Ty Johnson and La’Mical Perine are healthy scratches today, leaving Tevin Coleman and Austin Walter behind Carter.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. He's led New York's Michael Carter-less backfield with 27 carries over the past 2 weeks. With Carter still out, we're expecting La'Mical Perine to join Ty Johnson and Austin Walter in a 3-man committee this weekend. It's a situation to avoid against the league's #1 RB defense.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and looks unlikely to play vs. the Saints this weekend. The Jets still figure to roll with a 3-man committee with Ty Johnson, Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine. It's a backfield to avoid vs. the Saints' top-ranked RB defense.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman is in concussion protocol, HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday. So Coleman is suddenly iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Saints. He's operated as New York's lead back the past 2 weeks, ahead of RBs Ty Johnson and Austin Walter. RB Michael Carter (ankle) isn't eligible to come off IR until Week 15.

The Jets have placed RB Michael Carter on IR. He sprained an ankle last week and has been expected to miss at least 2 games. This designation means Carter will miss at least 3 contests. He can now return for the Week 15 rematch with Miami at the earliest.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. The rookie is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his high-ankle sprain. His absence leaves New York’s backfield to Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman. We’re expecting carries to be split fairly evenly, but Johnson should dominate passing-game work.

Jets RB Michael Carter is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a "low-grade" high-ankle sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So the rookie figures to miss Week 12 vs. the Texans and Week 13 vs. the Eagles. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 14 vs. the Saints. Carter is worth stashing on fantasy benches for the stretch run. His absence leaves Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman as New York's top 2 RBs. Carries could be split fairly evenly between them, but Johnson should dominate pass-catching work and is the superior fantasy play.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Colts. That'll again leave the backfield to RBs Michael Carter and Ty Johnson.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. That'll again leave the backfield to RBs Michael Carter and Ty Johnson. With Coleman out last week, Carter handled 11 carries and 9 targets; Johnson 5 carries and 7 targets. Carter is a volume-based RB3 or flex play in Week 8.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. He leaves a handful of touches behind for RBs Michael Carter and Ty Johnson.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Friday, so it looks like he hurt his hamstring then. Coleman is well off the fantasy radar, but his absence would leave a handful of touches behind for RBs Michael Carter and Ty Johnson.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman is out for Sunday's game against the Broncos with a non-COVID illness. He played just 10% of the snaps and handled 5 carries and 0 targets last week, so his absence leaves behind just a little more work for RBs Michael Carter and Ty Johnson.

The Jets have released RB Josh Adams. It's not a surprising drop given Adams' total lack of summer buzz, but it takes 1 player with some NFL experience out of the team's crowded backfield. We wouldn't be shocked if Adams gets a shot elsewhere, but he's not a fantasy factor until further notice.

The Jets rested starters Friday night in their preseason finale vs. Philadelphia. That meant no action for RB Tevin Coleman. Michael Carter and Ty Johnson played, however, and Johnson took the field 1st. Carter did mix in for the 1st drive but saw just 1 carry vs. 5 for Johnson. The work evened out between them by halftime: 8 carries, 1 target for Johnson; 7 carries, 1 target for Carter. The rookie then sat out the 2nd half, while Johnson remained heavily involved. That last point could be a positive for Carter. But he's clearly opening the year at least behind Coleman. Keep that in mind as you decide where to draft any Jets RBs over the next couple of weeks.

Jets beat writer Connor Hughes of The Athletic sees the team’s backfield as a “3-man rotation.” “Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter will all see their share of snaps in the regular season,” Hughes writes, “with La’Mical Perine working in as the goal-line, short-yardage back.” It’s tough to buy Perine as a factor, but a Jets RB rotation has largely been the theme all summer. Look for the situation to remain fluid throughout the year.

Jets RB Michael Carter played 0 snaps with QB Zach Wilson and the 1st-team offense in Saturday's preseason game vs. the Packers. RB Tevin Coleman got the start and played 10 of 19 snaps with Wilson. RB Ty Johnson played the other 9. We'll see if Carter gets any run with the starters in the final exhibition. But as of now, he's not looking like a guy we'll be able to use in fantasy lineups to start the season.

Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com projects RB Ty Johnson as a cut in his admittedly "far too early" 53-player roster projection. "[Tevin] Coleman will likely get the majority of the snaps, but there will be plenty of opportunities for [Michael] Carter and another young back," Vasquez writes. "[Josh] Adams, [La'Mical] Perine and Johnson will battle for the final two spots at this position." We're not particularly excited about any player in what figures to line up as a committee but will be tracking the competition through summer.
