Crowder (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Crowder's absence was fully expected after the Jets downgraded him from questionable to doubtful Saturday. With Crowder set to miss his third game of the season, Braxton Berrios is expected to see the majority of the Jets' snaps out of the slot.
Crowder (groin) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Crowder was downgraded to doubtful Saturday, so it looks as though his next chance to suit up will arrive Nov. 1 against the Chiefs. Though the Jets' top pass-catcher is expected to be out Sunday, the team's Week 7 wide receiver corps will be bolstered by the return of Denzel Mims, with Breshad Perriman, Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith also on hand to catch passes from QB Sam Darnold (shoulder), who's in line to return to action for the first time since Oct. 1.
Crowder (groin) was downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Bills.
Analysis: It doesn't take a rocket scientist to read the tea leaves on this one as the Jets activated 2020 second-round pick Denzel Mims (hamstrings) off injured reserve Saturday and almost immediately followed up with the Crowder downgrade designation. There of course remains a chance the talented slot receiver could end up taking the field, but if not expect Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith to operate in the slot with Mims and Breshad Perriman split out on either side. Both Berrios and Smith had their best games of the season during Crowder's two-game absence over the course of Weeks 3 and 4.
Crowder (groin) returned to practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo, Andy Vasquez of USA Today Sports reports.
Analysis: Crowder logged a limited session Friday after failing to practice Thursday. The shifty slot receiver has been fed double-digit targets in all four of his games played this season, so Crowder should be busy if he's able to play through the groin injury he sustained in practice this week.
Crowder (groin) will practice as a limited participant Friday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old was unable to participate at practice Thursday, so it's a good sign to see him returning to the field for Friday's session, even in a limited capacity. However, coach Adam Gase also said the wideout would be limited prior to Thursday's practice before he ultimately sat out. More information on Crowder's availability for Sunday's game against the Bills will be available when the team releases its official injury report later in the day.
Crowder (groin) didn't practice Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Coach Adam Gase said before practice that Crowder would be limited, so it remains to be seen if the Jets were simply playing it safe with their top pass-catcher or if there was a setback involved. Added clarity regarding Crowder's Week 7 status should arrive when the team returns to practice Friday.
Crowder (groin) will remain limited at practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Per the report, Crowder is dealing with some groin tightness, but the hope is that it's nothing serious. We'll revisit the the status of the Jets' top pass-catcher no later than Friday, but it's quite possible that Crowder will end up listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Crowder (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Rich CImini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Adam Gase didn't mention this injury before Wednesday's session, leading Cimini to believe that Crowder hurt his groin during practice. The slot receiver's practice participation will be worth monitoring as the week unfolds, as Crowder was shaping up to be a solid fantasy option Sunday against the Bills with quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) angling to return from a two-game absence.
Crowder caught seven of 13 targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Dolphins.
Analysis: He led the Jets in receptions and targets once again, but for the first time this season Crowder wasn't able to turn the volume into significant production. Regardless of whether Sam Darnold (shoulder) or Joe Flacco has been under center, Crowder has seen double-digit targets and hauled in at least seven passes in all four games he's been able to suit up for, and with the winless Jets constantly playing from behind, he figures to remain the team's top wideout heading into Week 7's clash with the Bills.
Crowder caught eight of 10 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Cardinals.
Analysis: The 27-year-old has now topped 100 yards in all three games he's been healthy enough to play in, and done it while catching passes from two different quarterbacks to boot as Joe Flacco stepped in for Sam Darnold (shoulder) on Sunday. Whichever QB is under center against the Chargers in Week 6, expect Crowder to see heavy volume again as the only reliable target the Jets have in their lineup right now.
Crowder (hamstring) secured seven of 10 targets for 104 yards in the Jets' 37-28 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
Analysis: Crowder made an immediate impact upon his return to action from a two-game absence, co-leading the Jets in receptions while pacing the team in receiving yards and targets. The one blemish on the veteran's night was that he couldn't get into the end zone, but his chemistry with quarterback Sam Darnold was otherwise on full display. With Crowder seemingly back at full health, he and Darnold will look to connect even more frequently in a Week 5 home matchup against a high-powered Cardinals squad.
Crowder (hamstring) is active for Thursday's game against the Broncos, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Crowder missed the past two games due to a hamstring issue, but after practicing in a limited fashion all week Sam Darnold's favorite target from last season is back in action. In Week 1, Crowder received a whopping 13 targets, which translated to seven catches for 115 yards and one touchdown. He'll look to replicate that line versus a Denver defense that has allowed 8.5 YPT and five touchdowns to wide receivers through three contests.
Crowder (hamstring) is expected to play Thursday night against Denver, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Crowder's official status will still need to be confirmed prior to the 8:20 p.m. EST kickoff, as the report admits the wideout still isn't quite 100 percent. His prospective return would be a major boost to the position group, as Breshad Perriman (ankle) has already been ruled out, and Chris Hogan (ribs/knee) carries a "questionable" tag into the contest. Despite the injury risk, as well as being part of what's been an abysmal offense this year, Crowder's matchup otherwise plays well on paper. He'd likely be given as many targets as he can handle, and will be going up against a secondary allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers in standard formats.
Crowder (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Broncos.
Analysis: Crowder logged limited practices at every session this week, but coach Adam Gase said Tuesday that Crowder would be available Thursday, so the shifty slot receiver is more likely than not to be out there against the Broncos. He hasn't suited up since Week 1, when Crowder caught seven balls for 115 yards and a touchdown against the Bills.
Jets head coach Adam Gase said that Crowder (hamstring) will be listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's injury report, but the wideout is expected to be available for Thursday's game against the Broncos, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Crowder may end up carrying a questionable designation into the Week 4 matchup if he's unable to graduate to full participation in Wednesday's practice, but he looks to be trending toward a return to the New York lineup after missing the previous two contests. With Breshad Perriman (ankle) already being ruled out for Thursday, Crowder would profile as quarterback Sam Darnold's clear-cut top option in the passing game. Before being diagnosed with the hamstring injury, Crowder had a productive showing in the Week 1 loss to the Bills, hauling in seven of 13 targets for 115 yards and a score.
Crowder (hamstring) "sounds like a game-time decision" for Thursday night's game against the Broncos, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Fellow wide receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) won't play Thursday, but Crowder has a chance to return after missing the Jets' last two games. On the Jets' Monday practice estimate, Crowder was listed as a limited participant.
Coach Adam Gase has ruled Crowder (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Crowder will miss his second straight contest due to a lingering hamstring injury, and he'll face a quick turnaround to get healthy for Week 4 with a Thursday night contest against the Broncos on deck. With Breshad Perriman (ankle) also unavailable against Indianapolis, and Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) still on IR, it looks like the Jets' receiving corps will be led by Chris Hogan (ribs) and Braxton Berrios on Sunday.
Crowder (hamstring) won't practice Thursday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Meanwhile, coach Adam Gase indicated it's "doubtful" that Crowder will play against the Colts on Sunday. Breshad Perriman (ankle) is also trending toward a Week 3 absence, which sets the stage for Chris Hogan (ribs) and Braxton Berrios to head the team's wide receiver corps this weekend.
Crowder (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Ciminialso points out that it has now been seven days since Crowder hurt his hamstring and he's still not running, but coach Adam Gase remains non-committal on the slot receiver's status for Sunday's game against the Colts. The injury-riddled Jets offense could use all the help it can get with starting running back Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on IR and outside receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) doubtful for Week 3, but Crowder will need to show improvement quickly to have a chance of providing quarterback Sam Darnold with a much-needed weapon come Sunday.
Crowder (hamstring) is not expected to land on IR, per coach Adam Gase, who is cautiously optimistic that the receiver isn't dealing with a long-term injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Take this news with a grain of salt, as we're talking about the same Gase who put star running back Le'Veon Bell back into the second half of a Week 1 contest in which Bell hurt his hamstring in the first half. Now Bell is on IR, but it looks for the moment like Crowder won't suffer the same fate, though the team's leading receiver has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
