The Jets placed Herndon (ribs) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenburg of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Herndon opened his second pro campaign with a four-game suspension and promptly suffered a hamstring injury upon his return to the team, sidelining him for another four contests. He finally made his season debut this past Sunday against the Giants, only to suffer a broken rib. Moving forward, the Jets will rely on Ryan Griffin, Trevon Wesco and Daniel Brown to man tight end.

Herndon suffered a broken rib during Sunday's 34-37 win over the Giants and will miss multiple weeks, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Herndon's season debut was delayed to Week 10 due to a four-game suspension and an ensuing Grade 1 hamstring strain. After managing just 28 percent of the offensive snaps and catching one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's barn burner, he's now picked up yet another serious injury. Look for Ryan Griffin to continue to be the most utilized Jets tight end.

Herndon (hamstring) finally made his season debut and caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

A suspension and hamstring injury combined to wipe away the first half of Herndon's season, but the second-year tight end is finally back in the fold. Expect better things from Herndon moving forward, as he flashed potential with 502 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie.

Herndon (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

We'd like to see the tight end register a full and productive game before endorsing him as a reliable lineup option, but once Herndon re-establishes his role in the Jets' passing attack, he has a solid chance to re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks.

Herndon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants after practicing in a limited fashion all week, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, Cimini adds that the tight end -- who was in uniform in Week 9 but did not see the field -- is expected to make his debut in the Jets offense this Sunday. "It looks good," coach Adam Gase said Friday. Once Herndon re-establishes his role in the Jets passing attack, the tight end could re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks, but he's a speculative lineup option in Week 10.

Herndon (hamstring) will be limited at practice Friday, but head coach Adam Gase said "it looks good" when asked about Herndon's chances of playing Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Herndon was active for last week's game and ultimately did not take the field, but it appears he has a chance to see his first action of the season Sunday against the Giants. After last week's goose egg, though, fantasy players will probably want to look for something definitive before including him in Week 10 lineups.

Herndon (hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

We'll circle back on Herndon's status Friday, but the 2018 fourth-rounder appears to have a solid chance to make his season debut Sunday against the Giants. Once the tight end re-proves his health with a full and productive game, Herndon could re-emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks.

Herndon (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, Manish Mehta

of the Daily News relays that coach Adam Gase anticipates that Herndon will be able to practice fully at some point this week, which has a chance to lead to the tight end playing for the first time this season Sunday against the Giants. Herndon was active for Week 9's loss to Miami, but didn't play.

Herndon (hamstring) didn't get into Sunday's 26-18 loss to Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Herndon was active but didn't get involved in the offense, with Ryan Griffin continuing to shoulder the workload at tight end. It's apparent that Herndon's hamstring still isn't healthy, but perhaps it will heal up by the time the Jets face the Giants in the battle for New York in Week 10.

Herndon (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Herndon will suit up for the first time this season, but it's unclear if he's actually recovered from the hamstring injury. All seven of the Jets' inactive players are dealing with injuries that are apparently more concerning than Herndon's, so the tight end's active status doesn't necessarily mean he will play, per Brian Costello of the New York Post. Given the uncertainty of his role against the Dolphins -- if he even has one at all -- Herndon probably is best left on the bench or waiver wire in the majority of fantasy leagues this week.
