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.

The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "might not be long before [Jets RB Michael] Carter starts to see the lion’s share of reps." The rookie has had a "promising" spring and early summer, according to Hughes, and looks like the most explosive and best receiver of the Jets' RBs. Hughes does add that the Jets "prefer a running-back-by-committee approach, so guys like Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and/or La'Mical Perine will be involved. But Carter is the most exciting of the group and has a chance to emerge as a weekly fantasy starter this year.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine has tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday's finale vs. the Patriots. With RB Frank Gore (lung) also out, the Jets are down to RBs Ty Johnson and Josh Adams. Expect Johnson to lead a committee on the ground and handle most of the passing-down work, putting him in the RB3 mix.

Jets RB Frank Gore will miss the regular-season finale against the Patriots because of a lung contusion he suffered in Sunday's win over the Browns, according to Eric Allen of Jets 360. His absence leaves the backfield to rookie La'Mical Perine and Ty Johnson. Neither will be an exciting option, but it's an upside matchup against a New England D that has struggled vs. the run all year.

Jets RB Frank Gore left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Browns with a chest injury. We'll see about the severity this week. Rookie La'Mical Perine handled the team's final 4 RB carries after Gore left. Perine drew just 2 first-half carries in his return from a high-ankle sprain, vs. Ty Johnson's 2 and Gore's 6. Johnson and Perine would likely split work if Gore can't go in Week 17. Even if Gore returns, the Jets might elect to take a better look at the rookie in the regular-season finale.

The Jets have activated RB La’Mical Perine from IR. He has been out since sustaining a high-ankle sprain in Week 11. The team designated him to return on Dec. 16, though, so Perine has had 2 weeks of practice to work back in. The Jets increased Perine’s work just before the injury, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he goes back to leading the backfield in touches. At the least, his return further complicates an already shared backfield in a bad offense. Avoid all Jets RBs where pssible

Jets RB Frank Gore (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. He should resume lead-back duties but is just a volume-based RB3 or flex play.

There's "optimism" Jets RB Frank Gore (concussion) will play against the Seahawks today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Though it depends on him clearing a final hurdle this morning," Rapoport adds. Jets-Seahawks doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET, so we might not get Gore's official status until 3 pm ET. Ty Johnson will operate as New York's lead back if Gore isn't cleared.

Jets RB Frank Gore (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Seahawks.He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, though, and HC Adam Gase confirmed that Gore is on track to be cleared by Sunday.Assuming that happens, he’ll resume lead-back duties for the Jets — and RB3 status in fantasy.

Jets RB Frank Gore (concussion) will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Adam Gase said. So Gore has made some progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. Seattle. Ty Johnson figures to serve as New York's lead back if Gore doesn't play.

Jets RB Frank Gore exited on the 1st possession of Sunday's game against the Raiders to go for a concussion check. We'll update his status when we know more. Ty Johnson has replaced Gore as New York's lead back.

UPDATE: Gore was ruled out in the 3rd quarter.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain. He figures to miss multiple weeks and can be dropped from redraft rosters. Frank Gore will remain New York's lead back, with Ty Johnson and likely practice-squad call-up Josh Adams backing him up.

Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He figures to stay in the lead-back role but is a low-upside RB3 in fantasy lineups.

Lions RB Ty Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol, according to multiple reports. The team has removed him from the injury report, clearing the way for Johnson to play against the Cowboys. That means he and J.D. McKissic will split touches, and that neither is likely to help your fantasy football lineup much

Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He put in a full practice on Friday, though, so he’s trending toward getting cleared by Sunday. Johnson’s presence would take RB J.D. McKissic out of fantasy consideration.

Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to get cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.
