Cadet's teammate Mike Tolbert (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

That means Cadet will serve as the exclusive backup to LeSean McCoy again, where he'll probably see some looks in the passing game. The Bills have been giving McCoy nearly all the carries all season, but there's a chance Cadet could see some of those as well if the game gets out of hand, as it has for the Bills in the last three games, all losses.

Cadet, suiting up for the first time as a Bill, ran three times for 17 yards and caught all six of his targets for 39 yards during Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Much of that production came in garbage time of a brutal 54-24 loss, but Cadet certainly looked better than Mike Tolbert has in recent weeks. It may not make too much of a difference with LeSean McCoy healthy and playing the role of bell-cow back like a man several years younger, but Cadet might end up providing a more valuable insurance policy than Tolbert for McCoy owners. He certainly has more ability in the passing game.

Cadet's teammate Mike Tolbert will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a hamstring injury.

EDGE Analysis

Other than fullback Pat DiMarco, starter LeSean McCoy and Cadet are the only healthy running backs on the roster right now. Cadet should see at least a few carries to spell McCoy, who's expected to see a heavy workload as the Bills attempt to stop a two-game losing streak and stay in the playoff chase. With a decent performance, Cadet could even pass Tolbert on the depth chart, as the veteran hasn't done much this season and seems to be struggling with the team's offensive system.

Cadet signed a contract with the Bills on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

With running back Taiwan Jones (arm) out for the season, the Bills wasted no time securing more depth in their backfield. Cadet most recently suited up for the Jets while their backfield was dealing with injuries, making just one rushing attempt for three yards across three game appearances. Once again, it will probably be tough for him to secure significant carries, as he'll be behind both LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert on the depth chart.

The Jets released Cadet on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets brought Cadet in as insurance option at running back while Matt Forte, and later on, Bilal Powell, tended to injuries, but he became expendable once the latter two players returned to full health for the Week 7 loss to the Dolphins. Even with one of either Powell or Forte missing each of the last three games prior to Week 7, Cadet only saw the field for 13 offensive snaps, touching the ball four times.

Cadet (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

After signing with the Jets prior to Week 4, Cadet suited up in each of the team's last three games while one of Bilal Powell and Matt Forte sat out with injuries. Cadet only played 13 combined offensive snaps in those contests, with all four of his touches coming in the Week 6 loss to the Patriots, during which he finished with 29 total yards. With both Powell and Forte back to full strength heading into Sunday, Cadet could be a fixture on the inactive list for the foreseeable future.

Cadet agreed to a contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet previously attracted interest from the Jets during the offseason before re-signing with the Saints, who ended up waiving him following the conclusion of the preseason. With lead back Matt Forte nursing a toe injury, the Jets will bring Cadet aboard to provide some insurance out of the backfield. Like Forte and top backup Bilal Powell, Cadet is adept as a pass catcher; he has two 30-plus catch campaigns on his resume. However, unless Forte's injury results in him sitting out Sunday against the Jaguars, it's unlikely that Cadet would be active for the contest, given his standing as the fourth man on the depth chart at running back.

Cadet was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of the Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

With 2017 third-rounder Alvin Kamara now in the fold, the Saints have little use for Cadet, who isn't as explosive as a pass catcher compared to the rookie. However, Cadet could still offer value to another organization in need of a third-down specialist.

Cadet (undisclosed) had five carries for 22 yards and six catches for 51 yards (eight targets) in Thursday's preseason finale against Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet returned after missing the previous week's contest, enjoying one last chance to make his case for a roster spot. Alvin Kamara has made the veteran pass-catching specialist expendable, but the Saints could still decide to retain Cadet as their No. 4 running back. Daniel Lasco and Darius Victor are the other candidates for the job.

Cadet (undisclosed) did not play in the Saints' third preseason on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet, who has been sidelined for much of training camp with an undisclosed injury, returned to practice earlier in the week but still donned a red non-contact jersey. While the versatile pass catcher still has a chance to make the final roster given his history under head coach Sean Payton, rookie Alvin Kamara appears to have clearly distanced himself from Cadet on the running back depth chart.
