Owusu (concussion) has been waived/injured by the Jets.

Owusu (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Raiders, NJ.com reports.

Owusu is yet to clear the NFL's concussion protocol, thus making him ineligible to play in Sunday's contest. With rookie Devin Smith (ankle) also slated to be sidelined, Jeremy Kerley should see an increased workload against Oakland.

Owusu (concussion) did not practice Thursday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Owusu missed three weeks earlier in the season with a knee injury and now will need to pass concussion protocol in order to play in Week 8. The 25-year-old recorded two catches for 25 yards on four targets against the Patriots in Week 7, so it remains to be seen how effective Owusu might be even if he was cleared to play.

Owusu (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Owusu has a history of concussions, which clouds the wideout's Week 8 status, in the wake of his return to action this past Sunday against the Patriots, a contest in which Owusu caught two of four targets for 25 yards.

Owusu (knee) caught two passes for 25 yards Sunday against the Patriots.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Owusu had a 21-yard reception to highlight his day, but he was otherwise quiet. The Jets used five receivers in the game, and his four pass targets only placed him behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. In the three games in which he's appeared this season, he's averaging slightly over four targets.

Owusu (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Owusu was limited at practice this week, but it looks like he has a good chance to suit up Sunday, though a wait-and see approach is in order from a fantasy perspective, so long as both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are healthy enough to play.
