Trenton Cannon: Absent from practice

Cannon (foot/ankle) did not practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Cannon wasn't able to suit up Week 6 against Dallas. He'll have two more opportunities to upgrade his practice activity before Monday's tilt against the Patriots. If the second-year pro is forced to miss more time, expect Ty Montgomery to handle kick return duties once again.

Trenton Cannon: No-go for Week 6

Cannon (foot) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Cannon came into the game doubtful to suit up, so this news isn't quite surprising. Now that he's officially ruled out, Cannon's absence won't effect the offense, but Ty Montgomery looks in line to handle kick return duties Sunday.

Trenton Cannon: Doubtful against Cowboys

Cannon (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Dallas, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Analysis: If Cannon sits this one out, Ty Montgomery would likely handle kick return duties. Cannon's role has been limited almost exclusively to special teams, as he's yet to touch the ball on offense this season.

Trenton Cannon: Can't practice Thursday

Cannon (foot) is not practicing Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Cannon's foot issue has kept him from participating in two consecutive practices. He'll need to upgrade to at least a limited session Friday in order to suit up Week 6. If Cannon were forced to miss any time, Ty Montgomery would serve as New York's top kick returner.

Trenton Cannon: Managing foot injury

Cannon didn't participate at practice Wednesday due to a foot injury.

Analysis: Cannon entered Sunday's loss to the Eagles nursing ankle and hamstring injuries, but he came out of the contest with a foot injury. The 25-year-old will need to practice in a limited fashion by Friday to have a chance of suiting up Week 6.

Trenton Cannon: Good for Sunday

Cannon (ankle/hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Philadelphia.

Analysis: Cannon missed some practice time due to ankle and hamstring issues this week, but he practiced fully Friday to avoid an injury tag. The 25-year-old should continue to work as the Jets' No. 1 option returning kicks.

Trenton Cannon: Limited Thursday

Cannon (hamstring) is a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Cannon's hamstring injury has lingered since mid-September. He's previously managed to play through the issue, so he doesn't appear to be in much danger of missing Sunday's tilt against the Eagles. The second-year pro does most of his damage as the Jets' top kick returner.

Trenton Cannon: Nursing hamstring injury

Cannon is rehabbing a hamstring injury during Wednesday's practice, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Cannon wasn't able to fully shake his hamstring injury during the Jets' bye week, but he no longer appears bothered by his ankle issue. The second-year pro has only played one snap on offense this season, so New York's backfield likely wouldn't be noticeably impacted if he were to miss time. However, any time spend sidelined by Cannon would move Ty Montgomery into the No. 1 kick returner gig.

Trenton Cannon: Ready to roll

Cannon (ankle/hamstring) is officially listed as active for Sunday's game against New England.

Analysis: Cannon logged limited practice in the final two sessions of the week heading into the game, and was deemed questionable. The fact that he's active likely won't have an impact on the offense, as he's played just one offensive snap this season, and seems to be buried on the depth chart behind Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery.

Trenton Cannon: Continues healing two injuries

Cannon (ankle/hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.

Analysis: Cannon was a limited participant for the final two practices this week, so he's on track to playing Sunday. Through two games, Cannon has played just one offensive snap. He's not expected to make an offensive impact as long as Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery are healthy.

September 20, 2019 3:02 PM EST

Trenton Cannon: Upgrades to limited Thursday

Cannon (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Cannon's limited participation Thursday is an upgrade from his non-participation Wednesday. The 25-year-old has seen 33 of his 34 snaps on special teams so far this season, and he would figure to continue serving in that role if he can suit up for Sunday's matchup with New England.

September 19, 2019 2:30 PM EST

Trenton Cannon: Not practicing Wednesday

Cannon did not practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: It's unclear exactly when Cannon suffered the injury, as he has only gotten work on special teams through the first two weeks of the regular season. Consider him day-to-day with the ankle injury for now.

September 18, 2019 2:51 PM EST

Trenton Cannon: No offensive touches through Week 2

Cannon once again didn't touch the ball on offense in Monday's 23-3 loss to the Browns. He returned three kickoffs for a total of 50 yards.

Analysis: Cannon isn't a part of New York's game plan on offense and can be ignored outside of formats that reward return yards.

September 17, 2019 10:39 AM EST

Trenton Cannon: Minimal offensive role

Cannon played one offensive snap in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Le'Veon Bell played every snap in the season opener, leaving few opportunities for the rest of the backfield group. Cannon's only real action of the game came in punt coverage, as he downed a punt at the two-yard line during the third quarter. The 25-year-old could still see some chances in the return game, but he's unlikely to have a worthwhile offensive role.

Trenton Cannon: Looking good after McGuire cut

Cannon appears to have a spot on the Jets' initial 53-man roster, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Cannon was competing for the No. 4 running back job with Elijah McGuire, who was waived by the Jets on Friday. His touches on offense figure to be few and far between, but Cannon is listed atop the depth chart for kick returns. Le'Veon Bell, Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell are ahead of Powell in the backfield.

Trenton Cannon: Gains 20 yards in preseason finale

Cannon gained 17 yards on four carries and caught both of his targets for three yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles.

Analysis: Cannon got 10 fewer carries than Elijah McGuire but only gained 12 fewer yards. While McGuire finds himself on the roster bubble as the team's fifth running back, Cannon's spot appears to be safe thanks to his contributions on special teams. He seems to be locked in as the Jets' top kick returner, and Cannon returned one kick for 14 yards in this one.

Trenton Cannon: Strengthens roster bid

Cannon rushed six times for 51 yards and caught three of four targets for 28 more in Saturday's 28-13 preseason loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Cannon was already looking likely to make the roster, and this strong performance further helps his case. He also added a 16-yard kick return in this one. Most of his contributions are likely to come in a special-teams role when the games start to count.

August 25, 2019 11:24 AM EST

Trenton Cannon: Making case for job

Cannon is on track for a spot on the 53-man roster, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coach Adam Gase said he's been impressed with his backfield this summer, specifically mentioning Cannon, Le'Veon Bell and Ty Montgomery. Given his ability to return kicks and catch passes out of the backfield, Cannon makes sense as a fourth option behind Bell, Montgomery and Bilal Powell -- a scenario that would leave Elijah McGuire without a roster spot.

August 20, 2019 7:52 AM EST

Trenton Cannon: Stuck in mud on offense

Cannon rushed six times for six yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in Thursday's 22-10 win over Atlanta in Week 2 of preseason.

Analysis: Neither Cannon nor Elijah McGuire did much to grab the No. 4 running back spot by the horns in this one, but the status quo is fine for Cannon, whose claim to a roster spot will hinge on his special teams contributions. He totaled 60 yards on two kick returns in this one.

August 16, 2019 8:25 AM EST

Trenton Cannon: Plenty of action to kick off 2019

Cannon rushed nine times for 20 yards and caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants.

Analysis: Cannon also picked up 36 yards on two kick returns and made a nice tackle as the gunner on an opposing punt return. The second-year running back is battling for a roster spot, and his special teams contributions will likely be the key to locking down a regular-season role with the Jets. Cannon should get plenty of snaps on both offense and special teams as the preseason unfolds.
