SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports Jets GM Mike Maccagnan is not on the hot seat.

Coach Todd Bowles seems all but certain to be fired after the season if he even makes it that far, but "Maccagnan's job doesn't appear to be in danger at all," according to Vacchiano. After trading up for Sam Darnold in March, the Jets apparently want to see what Maccagnan can build with what should be over $100 million in cap space this spring.

The Jets are unsure if Sam Darnold (foot) will be ready to return following the team's Week 11 bye.

The Jets made it sound as if Darnold was close to being ready for Week 10, so it is a bit of a surprise. We would expect Darnold to be ready to face the Patriots, but foot injuries are infamously tricky. Josh McCown struggled in Darnold's absence, so there is no performance-based reason for the sinking Jets to hold off on returning to their rookie starter.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jets coach Todd Bowles will not be fired during the season.

Rapoport says the Jets would rather make the decision after the season, but all this really means is Bowles will get the bye week to try to turn the ship around. Another performance like the one against the Bills would all but force the Jets' hand.

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to Buffalo.

Pedestrian slot man Kearse is safe to drop entering the Jets' Week 11 bye.
Nov 11 - 5:10 PM

Quincy Enunwa caught 4-of-8 targets for 18 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bills.

No one produced in the Jets' passing game on a day where Josh McCown threw for just 135 yards. Enunwa has been playing through a high ankle sprain. He gets Gang Green's forthcoming bye to recuperate for the stretch run.
Nov 11 - 5:09 PM

Elijah McGuire rushed six times for 30 yards and caught 3-of-6 targets for 27 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to Buffalo.

He outgained Isaiah Crowell 57 to 37, although Crowell put up more fantasy points due to his five-yard rushing TD in what amounted to garbage time. McGuire has looked like Gang Green's best back since coming off IR/return two games ago. The Jets should consider increasing McGuire's stretch-run workload after their Week 11 bye. McGuire is a hold in 12- and 14-team PPR leagues.
Nov 11 - 4:47 PM

Chris Herndon caught 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bills.

Josh McCown pathetically managed 4.0 yards per attempt and 135 passing yards overall, ensuring no one in the Jets' passing game had a good Week 10 box score. Herndon has led the team in receiving yards in consecutive weeks, however. He will stay on the low-end streamer radar after New York's Week 11 bye.
Nov 11 - 4:46 PM

Isaiah Crowell rushed seven times for 19 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bills.

His five-yard bunny score didn't occur until the Jets were already down by 30-plus points. It was the team's lone touchdown all game in New York's embarrassing 41-10 home loss. Behind one of the NFL's worst offensive lines, Gang Green's running game has gone in the absolute tank. Crowell will remain a touchdown-or-bust flex option when the Jets return from their Week 11 bye.
Nov 11 - 4:36 PM

Josh McCown completed just 17-of-34 passes for 135 yards and two interceptions in the Jets' Week 10 blowout loss to the Bills.

He averaged a pathetic 4.0 yards per attempt, and not a single Jets pass catcher reached 35 yards. McCown was not the savior for Gang Green's broken offense, which has been decimated by injuries and poor line play. Sam Darnold (foot) figures to resume starting when the Jets come out of their Week 11 bye.
Nov 11 - 4:35 PM

Jets declared WR Robby Anderson, C Spencer Long, QB Sam Darnold, WR Deontay Burnett, CB Rashard Robinson, CB Derrick Jones, and DL Folo Fatukasi inactive for Week 10 against the Bills.

Josh McCown will start at quarterback. Jermaine Kearse and Quincy Enunwa will start at wide receiver. Jonotthan Harrison will start for Long at center.
Nov 11 - 11:50 AM

Jets placed TE Neal Sterling (concussion) on injured reserve.

Sterling suffered his second concussion of the year in Week 9. He started four of the five games he appeared in as the Jets' No. 2 tight end before going down. An impending free agent, Sterling could be brought back for the veteran minimum.
Nov 10 - 4:22 PM

Jets promoted QB Davis Webb to the 53-man roster.

This was the plan all along. Coach Todd Bowles left open the possibility of keeping Sam Darnold (foot, doubtful) active as the team's emergency No. 2, but that always seemed unlikely with the rookie strapped in a walking boot. Josh McCown will make his first start of the season against the Bills' stout secondary.
Nov 10 - 12:38 PM

Josh McCown is expected to start Week 10 against the Bills.

Sam Darnold (foot) is doubtful. It remains possible the rookie is active as an emergency option, but McCown will get the nod. McCown was a surprisingly good fantasy option at times last season, but the matchup against Buffalo is too tough to rely on him as a streaming option.
Nov 9 - 12:45 PM

Quincy Enunwa (ankle) was not listed on the final injury report for Week 10 against the Bills.

Like last week, Enunwa sat out the first two days of practice before returning on Friday, this time to a full session. With Robby Anderson (ankle) doubtful, Enunwa should work as the No. 1 receiver.
Nov 9 - 12:44 PM

Sam Darnold (foot) is doubtful for Week 10 against the Bills.

Josh McCown will get the start. There is a chance Darnold is active as the emergency backup, but there is no reason for the Jets to risk playing the rookie on an injured foot. Davis Webb will likely be promoted from the practice squad this week.
