Folk (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Folk missed two field goals last Monday against the Dolphins and it was later disclosed that he had been suffering from a hip-flexor injury. However, he practiced enough this week to be active Sunday, though with only 76 points through 12 games, he's a relatively weak fantasy option.

Folk (hip) is probable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Folk (hip flexor) indicated Wednesday that he's optimistic about being able to kick on Sunday against the Vikings, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
If the team elects not to sign another kicker, Folk's optimism would be supported, but with 76 points through 12 games to date, he's only an option in deeper formats while working behind the Jets' offense.

Folk is dealing with a hip-flexor injury, which may explain why he missed two field goals Monday against the Dolphins, ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports.
The Jets have a contingency plan in place in case Folk is not healthy enough to kick Sunday against the Vikings. On Tuesday the team worked out free agent Andrew Furney, who would presumably be added to the roster if it becomes clear later in the week that Folk is not healthy enough to kick. Fantasy owners should look to find a healthier option at kicker going forward.

Jets assigned the franchise tag to K Nick Folk.
The Jets cleared a ton of salary cap room under first-year GM John Idzik in 2013, impressively and quickly cleansing themselves of the Mike Tannenbaum era. Thus, they're able to commit roughly $3.4 million in cap space to Folk, who banged home 33-of-36 field goal tries last season. The sides will likely now work on a long-term agreement. Folk turned 29 in November.
