Pierce was released by the Jets on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was unlikely that Pierce would have been a main contributor for the Jets' backfield anyway. The 25-year-old found himself stuck behind the ever-emerging Bilal Powell and proven Matt Forte. In the end, a change of scenery may bode well for the talented Temple product.

Pierce (suspension/hamstring) has been placed on injured reserve, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierce may end up getting released with an injury settlement, as he was merely a fringe roster candidate before injuring his hamstring early in camp. The 2012 third-round pick also has an upcoming two-game suspension, which made him even less likely to earn a spot on the final roster. The Jets are replacing Pierce with Antone Smith, who will compete with Dominique Williams (concussion), Lache Seastrunk, Romar Morris and Terry Williams for what will likely be just one roster spot.

Pierce (suspension/hamstring) won't suit up for Thursday's preseason opener versus the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Afflicted by a hamstring concern since early last week, Pierce will join Matt Forte (hamstring) and Khiry Robinson (lower leg) in street clothes Thursday. The Jets will instead rely on a backfield composed of Bilal Powell, Dominique Williams, and Romar Morris.

Pierce (hamstring) sat out of Tuesday's practice, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old missed nine games last year with the Jaguars mostly due to a calf injury. Pierce is currently looking up at both Matt Forte and Bilal Powell on the Jets depth chart, but with Forte's injury history, Pierce could be someone to keep an eye on as he heals.

The Jets will sign Pierce, who is set to serve a two-game suspension to start the 2016 season, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Matt Forte and Bilal Powell currently top the Jets' RB depth chart, but Pierce will give the team added backfield depth heading into training camp, with Khiry Robinson a candidate to open camp on the PUP list and the team planning to waive Zac Stacy with a failed physical designation.

Pierce (calf) has been suspended for the first two games of the 2016 NFL campaign, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is no official word on the reasoning behind Pierce's suspension, but it may have to do with a DUI arrest from last March. The free-agent running back was claimed off of waivers by Jacksonville only a day after his arrest, but ultimately only gained 11 yards on six carries in 2015. At this point, given his lack of production last season, his injury problems and his off-the-field issues, Pierce will face an uphill battle as he looks for work this coming season.

Pierce was placed on injured reserve Monday, the Jaguars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

During pregame warmups for a Week 10 tilt in Baltimore, Pierce injured his calf and subsequently missed the Jags' past four games. With seemingly no end in sight to the absences, he'll miss the rest of his first season in Jacksonville, where he turned six carries into 11 yards and three receptions (on five targets) into seven yards.

Pierce (calf) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Pierce has only six carries on the season, so his absence should be of little consequence to fantasy teams.

Pierce (calf) is considered doubtful to play Sunday against the Chargers, Jaguars.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierce has been battling a calf injury for the last couple of weeks, and he was inactive for last Thursday's win over the Titans. The former Raven appears destined for a second straight inactive designation, though he likely wouldn't hold a major role in the offense, regardless.

Pierce (calf) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierce likely suffered his injury on special teams during Sunday's win over the Ravens, as he didn't get any offensive snaps. In Pierce's absence, Toby Gehart (groin) will serve as the No. 3 running back.
