The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports Terrelle Pryor suffered an ankle injury this offseason.

This explains why he was absent during OTAs on Tuesday. Pryor ended last season on injured reserve with an ankle issue which required surgery in November. Mehta did not say if this injury is to the same ankle, but it is a massive setback either way. Playing on a one-year deal, Pryor needs to be healthy and productive this season to cash in next spring.

Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is participating in OTAs.

It is a good sign as he continues to work back from a devastating knee injury. Bridgewater was also second in line during drills, behind Josh McCown but ahead of No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold.
May 22 - 10:51 AM

Quincy Enunwa (neck) is participating on a limited basis during OTAs.

Enunwa missed all of last season with a neck injury which required surgery. He is not participating fully, but he was working during individual drills. Enunwa should be ready to training camp.

Jets signed fourth-round TE Chris Herndon to a four-year contract.

Per PFF College, Herndon caught 35-of-43 slot targets in 2017, leading all college tight ends with an 81.4% catch rate when targeted inside. Herndon tore his MCL in Miami’s regular-season finale and was unable to test before the draft. An adequate blocker and good enough athlete for an H-back role, Herndon offers some Charles Clay-like traits as a catch-first tight end. The Jets have one of the weakest tight-end corps in the league, so Herndon could get a chance to contribute early. He's still completing his recovery from his college knee injury.

ESPN's Rich Cimini predicts Josh McCown opens the season as the Jets' starting quarterback.

Unless No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold dominates during training camp and the preseason, it makes sense for the Jets to give him some time to develop. Not even 21 yet, Darnold would be the second-youngest quarterback to start an NFL game since the merger if he is given the reins Week 1, and he turned the ball over 22 time his final season at USC. Darnold should take over the job at some point this season -- Cimini predicts by Halloween -- but he may have to sit for a month or two.

Jets signed third-round DT Nathan Shepherd to a four-year, $3.4 million contract.

The Jets have now signed each of their draft picks except for first-round QB Sam Darnold and fourth-round TE Chris Herndon. A plus run defender, the 315-pound Shepherd gives New York some much-needed depth on its D line following the offseason departures of Muhammad Wilkerson and Kony Ealy.

NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater believes sophomore Jordan Leggett has the slight edge for the Jets' starting tight end job.

Rookie Chris Herndon is believed to be Leggett's main competition, though former Raiders bust Clive Walford, who was claimed off waivers this offseason, is also in the picture. Leggett was a fifth-rounder last year and didn't appear in a game as a rookie. In new OC Jeremy Bates' lone season as an OC back in 2010 with Seattle, tight end wasn't a big part of the pass game.

NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater considers former third-round OLB Lorenzo Mauldin to be on the Jets' roster bubble.

Mauldin was the No. 82 overall pick in 2015. He managed just 6.5 sacks across his first two seasons and missed all of last year with a back injury. The Jets have gotten very little out of their edge rushers in recent years.

Robby Anderson had his felony resisting arrest with violence charges stemming from a 2017 incident in Florida dropped on Wednesday.

That's one hurdle Anderson has cleared, but he still has the January 2018 issue on his hands when he fled from police doing 105 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. Anderson had the felonies in that case dropped but still faces a misdemeanor reckless driving charge. He seems certain to serve a suspension.

Jets claimed OT Antonio Garcia off waivers from the Patriots.

The 85th overall pick in last year's draft, Garcia missed his entire rookie season with blood clots in his lungs, then was cut by the Pats with a non-football injury designation late last week. Garcia is a worthy flyer as a 24-year-old left tackle prospect, but he'll ultimately be a long shot with the Jets.

Patriots waived OT Antonio Garcia.

He was cut with a non-football injury designation. It's a stunner as Garcia was under consideration to replace Nate Solder at left tackle. The Patriots traded up to snag Garcia in the third round of last year's draft but he never saw the field in New England, missing his entire rookie season while battling blood clots in his lungs. The 24-year-old is finally healthy but needs to gain back weight after losing 40 pounds during his illness. Despite his health issues, it shouldn't take Garcia long to resurface.
May 11 - 1:24 PM

Quincy Enunwa (neck) anticipates being able to participate in OTAs later this month.

"I think I'll be able to go," Enunwa said. "I think we'll be smart about it. I think I'm going to go out there and do what I need to do." Enunwa missed all of last season and needed surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck. It's a dicey situation, but Enunwa said he believes he's at or near 100 percent. The Jets have a crowded receiver room, but Enunwa is arguably the best if healthy.

Jets fourth-round TE Chris Herndon (MCL) was limited during rookie minicamp.

Herndon suffered a torn MCL in Miami's regular-season finale which prevented him from testing prior to the draft. He was able to get in some work during individual drills at the minicamp, however, and seems to be nearing a return. At worst, he should be ready for training camp.
May 7 - 9:08 AM

Jets signed sixth-round DL Foley Fatukasi to a four-year contract.

The No. 180 overall pick out of UConn, Fatukasi has a big body (6’4/318) and high-end athleticism (70th-percentile SPARQ score). He is a developmental prospect who could help out as a run-stuffer right away.
May 7 - 8:43 AM

Jets signed sixth-round CB Parry Nickerson to a four-year contract.

The No. 179 overall pick out of Tulane, Nickerson is a playmaker with 4.32 wheels, but he weighs in at just 5-foot-10, 182 pounds. Those size concerns could confine him to slot duties in the NFL, although coach Todd Bowles said they will give him a shot outside during the offseason program.
