Jets HC Robert Saleh labeled RB Zonovan Knight questionable but "arrow up" for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Knight missed some time in yesterday's loss to the Lions with an ankle injury but eventually returned. We'll keep a close eye on his status over the next couple of days. If Knight can't play on Thursday, we'd likely see RB Michael Carter lead a committee alongside Ty Johnson and James Robinson.

Jets RB James Robinson is again a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Lions. RB Ty Johnson is active but didn't play a single offensive snap last week. RBs Zonovan Knight and Michael Carter figure to handle most, if not all, of the backfield work today.

Jets RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bills. RB Michael Carter is back and will join Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson in New York's backfield.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is not listed on the Week 14 injury report. So he'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Bills -- and should be at least close to 100%. The question now becomes how touches will be divvied in this backfield. HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday that RB Zonovan Knight is "not going anywhere," so expect him to remain significantly involved. RBs Ty Johnson and/or James Robinson also might continue to mix in. It's a messy situation and a tough matchup this weekend.

Jets RB Zonovan Knight handled 15 of the Jets' 20 RB carries in Sunday's loss at Minnesota. He ran for 90 yards (6.0 per rush), with more than half of that coming on a 48-yard scamper. Knight added 5 catches for 28 yards on 5 targets. RB Ty Johnson beat him in targets, catching 6 of 7 for 38 yards. James Robinson ranked 2nd in carries, with 4, gaining just 10 yards. HC Robert Saleh said the team planned a committee approach, but Knight operated as the clear leader in Michael Carter's absence (ankle sprain). We'll see about Carter's status for next Sunday's trip to Buffalo.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Vikings. RBs Zonovan Knight, Ty Johnson and James Robinson are active. We’re expecting Knight to lead the 3-man committee, making him a decent RB3 or flex play.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. He didn’t practice all week and should obviously be on fantasy benches. Carter’s absence would leave New York’s backfield to Zonovan Knight, James Robinson and Ty Johnson. Knight would be the best bet for touches and a viable RB3 or flex play in fantasy.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Vikings this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He reportedly has a low-ankle sprain that isn't considered serious, but Carter is certainly in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. His absence would leave rookie Zonovan Knight as New York's likely lead back, with Ty Johnson and James Robinson behind him.

Jets RB Michael Carter suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bears and is officially doubtful to return. With RB James Robinson scratched, New York is down to RBs Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson.

Jets RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bears. RBs Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight are dressed for New York. Robinson's absence is a slight boost to Carter's Week 12 fantasy stock.

Jets RB Michael Carter got the bulk of the backfield snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, the 1st game since Breece Hall's ACL tear. He played 1 more snap than the combined total for Ty Johnson and James Robinson. The carry counts made it look closer. Carter's 7 rushes (for 26 yards) led the group, with Robinson taking 5 (for 17) and Johnson 2 (for 6). Carter dominated receiving opportunities, tying for 2nd on the team with 7 targets. he caught 4 for 35 yards. Johnson (2) and Robinson (1) combined for no receptions on 3 targets. We're betting on Carter as the touch leader going forward, even if Robinson works into more playing time. We'd also bet on the backfield continuing to be unexciting. Week 9 brings a terrible matchup for everything on offense, with Buffalo coming to town.

In a game that likely saw rookie RB Breece Hall suffer an ACL tear, Jets RB Michael Carter gained just 29 yards on his team-leading 13 carries (2.2 per attempt). Carter did add 45 receiving yards on 2 receptions. Most of that came on a single 37-yard catch. Carter figures to lead the backfield going forward, with Ty Johnson the current #2. There are options available on the trade market, though, and we wouldn't be surprised to see the 5-2 Jets add someone there. Johnson carried 1 time for 3 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards in Sunday's win over Denver.

Forced to play from behind in the 4th quarter, the Jets fed RB Breece Hall only 8 touches in Week 2. The rookie rushed 7 times for 50 yards, including a 23-yarder that showed off his plus vision, balance and burst. He was stuffed for a loss on the next play — a goal line chance — but later scored on a swing pass where the Browns defense failed to guard him. On the day, RB Michael Carter matched Hall in carries. Carter also topped the rookie 5-1 in targets, with Ty Johnson even mixing in for 3 targets. So until his usage improves, Hall will remain an RB3 for the foreseeable future. Next up is a home date with the Bengals.

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.
