The Jets have signed TE Ryan Griffin. The 29-year-old was released by the Texans in April following an April arrest on vandalism and public intoxication charges. Those charges were dismissed, so Griffin should avoid a suspension. He's probably the current favorite to serve as New York's primary pass-catching TE during Chris Herndon's 4-game suspension. But Griffin isn't worth spending a pick on in fantasy drafts.

The Texans have placed TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) on IR. His roster spot will be taken by TE C.J. Fiedorowicz, who was activated from IR with his own concussion. Fiedorowicz will serve as Houston's lead pass-catching TE the rest of the way but is a low-upside fantasy option with Tom Savage under center.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts and is done for the day. We'll track his progress through the protocol this week, but Griffin isn't much of a fantasy option with Tom Savage under center.
