Goes on IR

New York placed Davis (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis' move to IR was merely procedural after head coach Robert Saleh confirmed Monday that the wideout would require season-ending core-muscle surgery after aggravating a groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. The 26-year-old wraps up his first season with Gang Green with 34 receptions for 492 yards and four touchdowns over nine games.

Headed for season-ending surgery

Jets head coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Davis will undergo season-ending core-muscle surgery.

Analysis: Davis lasted just 24 plays in Sunday's loss to the Eagles before checking out of the contest after aggravating the groin injury that previously sidelined him for the Week 12 win over the Texans. The core-muscle injury was more than likely related to the hip issue that also sidelined Davis for Weeks 8 and 9, so the Jets are seemingly hopeful that surgery will be able to address the matter once and for all. Signed to a three-year, $37.5 million contract this offseason with the hope that he would emerge as a bona fide No. 1 wideout for New York, Davis finishes his inaugural campaign with the Jets with 34 receptions for 492 yards and four touchdowns on 59 targets over nine appearances. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, most core-muscle procedures carry 8-to-10-week recovery timelines, so Davis should be back at 100 percent -- or close to it -- for OTAs.

Exits Sunday's game

Davis was forced out of Sunday's game against the Eagles after apparently aggravating his groin injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Davis -- who headed into the weekend listed as questionable with a groin injury-- caught two of his three targets for 15 yards. Next up for the Jets' targets in his absence are Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder and Braxton Berrios.

In uniform Sunday

Davis (groin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: After sitting out practice Wednesday and Thursday, Davis logged a limited session Friday, and he'll give it a go Sunday. That said, Rich Cimini of ESPN previously suggested that the wideout could potentially be limited to a degree in his return from a one-game absence. With that in mind, Davis who has averaged four catches on seven targets for 59.6 yards with four TDs in eight games, profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option in Week 13.

Questionable after limited practice

Davis (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia after logging a limited practice Friday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Davis was able to practice in some capacity for the first time this week after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday entirely. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Davis likely won't play more than a part-time role against the Eagles, if he's able to play at all. With Keelan Cole on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Denzel Mims could see extended playing time opposite Elijah Moore, with Jamison Crowder in the slot.

Dec 3, 2021 1:06 PM EST



Returning to practice Friday

Coach Robert Saleh said Davis (groin) will practice Friday.

Analysis: Davis was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday, and Saleh also said the team is more optimistic regarding the wideout's outlook than they were last week, when he sat out versus the Texans. The 26-year-old's performance at Friday's session will dictate his status heading into the weekend.

Dec 3, 2021 8:06 AM EST


Remains a non-participant Thursday

Davis (groin) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Per Cimini, Davis divulged Wednesday that he sustained the groin injury in Week 11 against the Dolphins. He got in a pair of limited practices before ultimately sitting out the Week 12 win over Houston, and Davis is trending towards another absence, having missed each of the Jets' first two practices this week. If Davis fails to practice in any fashion Friday, he'll almost certainly sit out Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Dec 2, 2021 10:23 AM EST


Not practicing Wednesday

Davis (groin) won't practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Davis, who was inactive for this past Sunday's game against the Texans, has two more chances to practice in advance of this weekend's game against the Eagles, but his absence from Wednesday's session clouds his Week 13 status. Meanwhile, fellow wideout Keelan Cole is on the reserve/COVID-19 list and unlikely to be available versus Philadelphia and Denzel Mims (illness) is on track be cleared to play.

Dec 1, 2021 9:16 AM EST


Sidelined for Week 12

Davis (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis will be in street clothes for the third time this season, an unsurprising development after the Jets downgraded him Saturday from questionable to doubtful in advance of the Week 12 contest. With Davis sidelined, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson will have Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole available as his primary options at receiver in his return from a four-game absence due to a knee injury.

Nov 28, 2021 8:44 AM EST


Now doubtful for Week 12

The Jets have downgraded Davis (groin) to doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis had been listed as questionable after logging a limited practice Friday, but Saturday's downgrade suggests that the wideout is now trending toward missing Sunday's contest. Official confirmation of his Week 12 status will arrive upon the release of the Jets' inactives prior to the team's 1:00 ET kickoff, but if Davis is unavailable, Elijah Moore and Jamison Crowder would be in line to lead New York's wide receiver corps versus Houston, with Keelan Cole and Braxton Berrios also in the mix.

Nov 27, 2021 11:17 AM EST


Listed as questionable, expected to play

Davis (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after returning to a limited practice Friday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Per Cimini, Davis is expected to be available Sunday, a notion echoed by coach Robert Saleh, who indicated that the wideout should be "ready to roll" this weekend, per Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site. Either way, Davis' Week 12 availability will be confirmed prior to the early slate of games Sunday, with New York and Houston kicking off at 1:00 ET.  Assuming he's active, Davis, ascending young wideout Elijah Moore and Jamison Crowder are in line to serve as the top receiving options for QB Zach Wilson, who's set to return to action for the first time since Week 7.

Nov 26, 2021 3:13 PM EST


Expected to suit up in Houston

Davis (groin) will be a limited participant in practice Friday, and coach Robert Saleh expects Davis to play Sunday in Houston, Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com reports.

Analysis: Davis was limited Wednesday and didn't practice at all Thursday, but Saleh said "all indications" point to Davis suiting up Sunday. The offseason addition has been the favorite target of rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, who has been named the team's starter Sunday after battling a knee injury. Davis has been targeted fewer than seven times only twice all season, and he should remain an integral part of New York's offense against a Houston team that has an identical 2-8 record.

Nov 26, 2021 10:40 AM EST


Logs DNP Thursday

Davis (groin) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Davis was listed as limited Wednesday after appearing to be shaken up during individual drills, so Thursday's downgrade clouds the wideout's status for Sunday's game against the Texans. What Davis is able to do Friday will thus be pivotal with regard to his Week 12 status. If he's out or limited this weekend, added looks would be available for the likes of Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder, Keelan Cole and Braxton Berrios.

Nov 25, 2021 1:39 PM EST


Limited by groin injury

Davis was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Per Hughes, Davis appeared to be shaken up during individual drills Wednesday. As a result, the wideout's status should be monitored in advance of Sunday's tilt against the Texans. Through eight games, Davis, who leads the Jets with 477 receiving yards, has scored four TDs, while averaging four catches and seven targets.

Nov 24, 2021 2:37 PM EST


Catches three passes from Flacco

Davis caught three of seven targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to Miami.

Analysis: Davis and Joe Flacco weren't on the same page, as Flacco found most of his success throwing to Elijah Moore, who finished with eight catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. If Zach Wilson (knee) makes his return in Week 12 against Houston as expected, Davis would be the biggest beneficiary in New York's passing game, as he was easily the rookie quarterback's favorite target when Wilson was healthy.

Nov 21, 2021 4:20 PM EST


Tops 90 yards in return

Davis (hip) caught five of seven targets for 93 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 45-17 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: A silver lining for the Jets after this blowout loss is that Davis looked fine in his return after missing the previous two games due to a hip injury. He was the only Jet to top 50 receiving yards, and Davis has eclipsed 90 in three of his first seven games with New York. The 26-year-old wide receiver has 29 catches on 49 targets for 442 yards and four touchdowns heading into a Week 11 matchup with the Dolphins.

Nov 14, 2021 2:13 PM EST


Ending two-game absence

Davis (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: He'll be making his return to the lineup after a two-game absence due the hip injury. Though Davis managed only one full practice this week, he was at least able to participate in a limited capacity Wednesday and Thursday, so the expectation is that he'll be able to take on a normal workload in his first game since Week 7. Davis will be catching passes from Mike White, who will make his third start of the season but his first with the Jets' No. 1 receiver available.

Nov 14, 2021 8:32 AM EST


Questionable but should play

Davis (hip) is listed as questionable but expected to play Sunday against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis logged a full practice Friday after limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, throwing further supporting evidence behind coach Robert Saleh's assertion that the Jets' top wide receiver is expected to make his return after a two-game absence. After being the only Jets wide receiver to find consistent success with rookie Zach Wilson under center, Davis will be catching passes from Mike White against the Bills, if the wideout indeed suits up.

Nov 12, 2021 12:47 PM EST


Trending toward Week 10 return

Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that Davis (hip) "looks good" to play Sunday against the Bills.

Analysis: Davis said he went "full throttle" in his return to practice earlier this week, and and it appears he's still on track to retake the field Sunday after missing the past two games with the hip issue. The 26-year-old's outlook for this weekend will receive additional clarity when the Jets release their official injury report later Friday.

Nov 12, 2021 8:15 AM EST


Making progress

Davis indicated Wednesday that his hip is feeling better and that he went "full throttle" in his return to practice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: That said, Davis, who has missed two straight games, was officially listed as limited Wednesday. Barring any setbacks though, the wideout appears to be trending toward a return to action Sunday against the Bulls, a game that will feature Mike White drawing another start at QB for the Jets, with Zach Wilson (knee) not yet ready to rejoin the lineup.
