Jets TE Ryan Griffin underwent surgery to repair ligament damage in his ankle last week, he told reporters on Monday. He's facing a 6-month rehab, so it was obviously a serious injury. Griffin figures to miss spring workouts but should be ready for training camp. He inked a 3-year extension in November but will need to battle with TE Chris Herndon for snaps in 2020.
The Jets have placed TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) on IR. He signed a 3-year, $10.8 million extension in November, so he'll be back with the Jets next season. But it'll likely be as the #2 TE behind Chris Herndon. The Jets are down to Daniel Brown as their lead TE.
Jets TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) is out for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. Daniel Brown figures to serve as New York's lead TE but shouldn't be used as anything other than a flier in single-game DFS contests.
The Jets have signed TE Ryan Griffin to a 3-year extension worth up to $10.8 million with "reachable" incentives, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The 29-year-old Griffin has turned it on since QB Sam Darnold returned and has averaged 4 catches, 55.8 yards and 0.8 TDs over his past 4 games. Griffin previously spent 6 seasons with the Texans, including a 50-catch 2016. Griffin's new contract damages the immediate outlook for 2nd-year TE Chris Herndon, who lost this season to suspension and then injury. It's tough to get excited about either player in dynasty right now. The new deal certainly confirms Griffin's entrenched role in the offense for the rest of this season, though.
