A warrant has been issued for free agent Joe McKnight's arrest after he failed to appear in court on Monday.

The court date was related to outstanding traffic charges. The whole situation could have been avoided with just a little common sense. McKnight worked out for the Giants last week, but has otherwise received no interest since being cut loose by the Jets.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports free agent Joe McKnight has not signed with the Packers and is only working out for the team.

A deal could be forthcoming, but it's not imminent. A previous tweet from McKnight indicated he'd joined the team, and several beat reporters ran with it. Instead, the Packers may be just doing due diligence. Indeed, McKnight could be a good fit for a team in need of a kick returner and change-of-pace back with Randall Cobb nursing an injury and DuJuan Harris on injured reserve.

Packers signed RB/KR Joe McKnight, formerly of the Jets.

It's another indication of the Packers' disappointment in fourth-round pick Johnathan Franklin. In Green Bay, look for 25-year-old McKnight to take over as the primary kickoff returner and compete to replace DuJuan Harris as the change-of-pace back behind Eddie Lacy. Lacy's every-down back role is not threatened. Although he's capable of helping Green Bay's special teams, McKnight has very little fantasy football appeal with the Packers.

Jets waived RB Joe McKnight.

McKnight entered the summer firmly on the roster bubble, but seemed to be saved by Chris Ivory's injury woes and Mike Goodson's legal troubles. That was not the case, as McKnight barely practiced in camp thanks to injury issues of his own, including a concussion and migraines. McKnight is a solid kick returner, but rushed the ball just 112 times in three years in New York, averaging 4.5 yards per carry. He's had durability issues. His special-teams prowess should land him a new job in relatively short order.

Joe McKnight admits he was dealing with a concussion earlier in camp, even though the Jets said he wasn't.

Shameful. McKnight had trouble even standing on the practice field last week, but the Jets kept insisting he was dealing with a "head" injury, suggesting a migraine. The degree to which teams continue to try to mask concussions is alarming. As for McKnight, he's apparently healthy now, and will be active for Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal against the Giants.

Jets RB Joe McKnight is sidelined again with a "head" injury.

McKnight is almost certainly concussed, but has dealt with migraines in the past. McKnight was wobbly on the practice field Monday, and had trouble even standing. The Jets would be deserving of a massive fine if McKnight was concussed. For now, he should be considered week to week. McKnight is wounding his roster chances.

Jets RB Joe McKnight (concussion) has resumed practicing.

The Jets never admitted that McKnight was concussed, but all signs suggested he was. He'll make his preseason debut Saturday against the Jaguars.

The New York Post reports Jets RB Joe McKnight was arrested in New Jersey last week for outstanding warrants after police pulled him over for speeding and changing lanes without signaling.

McKnight was arrested on July 30, on a Jets day off from camp. Police found he had blown off a $200 ticket for failing to produce an insurance card, and another $120 fine for failing to observe a traffic signal. Apparently, McKnight obeys traffic law about as well as he plays running back. He suffered a concussion at Friday's practice, and has not participated in training camp since.

Jets RB Joe McKnight is sidelined by an "apparent concussion" in camp.

McKnight might be more on the roster bubble were Chris Ivory healthy and Mike Goodson in camp. Instead, Ivory is injured and Goodson has yet to report, leaving Bilal Powell to work as the starter. McKnight could still wind up losing his roster spot, but for now he's hanging on and should make it to final cuts.
