Wesco (knee) is healthy and playing well in offseason practices after suffering a season-ending knee injury last year, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Cimini lists Wesco -- along with three other offensive players -- as under-the-radar standouts during practices this offseason. The 2019 fourth-round pick made 12 appearances but caught just three passes for 35 yards before suffering the knee injury. The Jets bolstered their tight end corps by signing C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin in free agency and drafting Jeremy Ruckert (foot) in the third round, so despite playing well, Wesco will still have an uphill battle for offensive snaps.

Wesco (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Wesco suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, and his season is now over as a result. He recorded only three receptions for 35 yards across 12 games but was more involved on special teams.
Dec 27, 2021 6:32 PM EST
Coach Robert Saleh said Wesco (knee) will be sidelined for "awhile" by an MCL injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Wesco suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the Jets, and it's safe to rule him out for the final two games of the season. The 2019 fourth-round pick finishes the campaign with three receptions for 25 yards in 12 games.
Dec 27, 2021 12:47 PM EST
Wesco caught his only target for 19 yards in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Miami.
Analysis: Wresco rumbled down to Miami's seven-yard line to set up the Jets' opening-drive touchdown, but that was the extent of his contributions on offense. The catch was Wesco's third of the season.

Wesco (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice session, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Wesco missed each of the last two games due to an ankle injury, but it appears as though he'll be back in action Sunday against the Dolphins. He's appeared in 10 games to begin the season but has hauled in just two of four targets for 16 yards.
Dec 15, 2021 2:08 PM EST
Wesco (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Wesco will miss a second straight game while working his way back from an ankle injury. In his stead, and especially with Ryan Griffin (ankle) also managing an injury and Tyler Kroft (chest) still on IR, Kenny Yeboah could handle increased reps versus New Orleans.
Dec 10, 2021 8:16 AM EST
Wesco (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice session, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Wesco was unavailable for Sunday's loss to the Eagles, and coach Robert Saleh has said that he expects the 26-year-old to miss multiple weeks. If he's held out again in Week 14, Ryan Griffin (ankle) and Kenny Yeboah should serve as the team's top two tight ends.
Dec 8, 2021 1:33 PM EST
Wesco (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Eagles.
Analysis: Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Wesco was expected to miss two to four weeks, so it's surprising the backup tight end wasn't ruled out earlier in the week. In his absence, undrafted rookie Kenny Yeboah will likely operate as the primary backup behind Ryan Griffin.
Dec 5, 2021 9:09 AM EST
Wesco (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Analysis: It's surprising Wesco isn't listed as out after coach Robert Saleh said earlier in the week that the fullback/tight end is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. The Jets are holding out slight hope for surprise improvement in Wesco's ankle, but he wasn't able to practice in any capacity during the week. If Wesco sits as expected, New York's tight end depth will consist of just Ryan Griffin and undrafted rookie Kenny Yeboah.
Dec 3, 2021 1:10 PM EST
Coach Robert Saleh announced on Monday that Wesco (ankle) is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks.
Analysis: Wesco has caught passes in just one of his 10 games played this season. Kenny Yeboah could step up as the Jets' No. 2 tight end behind Ryan Griffin if Tyler Kroft is unable to return from injured reserve before Sunday's matchup against the Eagles.
Nov 29, 2021 6:27 PM EST
Wesco caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Thursday's 45-30 loss to the Colts.
Analysis: Wesco worked his way onto the field in sets that called for two tight ends after Tyler Kroft exited due to a chest injury. This was the first multi-catch performance of the 2019 fourth-round pick's career.
Nov 5, 2021 8:31 AM EST
Wesco (knee) is active Thursday against the Colts, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Wesco injured his knee in practice ahead of Week 8 and missed the Jets' game against the Bengals. It was previously reported Wesco was expected to play after logging a full practice Wednesday, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. Wesco will slot in third on the Jets' tight end depth chart behind Tyler Kroft and Ryan Griffin in a mostly blocking role.
Nov 4, 2021 4:05 PM EST
Wesco (knee) is expected to play in the Jets' Week 9 contest Thursday against the Colts, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Wesco injured his knee at practice ahead of Week 8 and was unable to suit up Sunday against the Bengals. The tight end managed to log a limited practice Tuesday then a full practice Wednesday. If Wesco is unable to suit up, expect Ryan Griffin to see extended snaps behind Tyler Kroft on Thursday.
Nov 3, 2021 4:49 PM EST
Wesco (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Wesco was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday, and he has now officially been ruled out for Week 8 with a knee injury. The 26-year-old has played 82 offensive snaps across the Jets' first six games of the 2021 campaign, but he has failed to record any offensive stats. Daniel Brown will likely step into Wesco's reserve role against the Bengals on Sunday.

Wesco (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Wesco landed on the injury report Wednesday with a knee issue, but the severity of the injury is unknown. The 26-year-old has played 82 offensive snaps across the Jets' first six games of the 2021 campaign, but he has failed to record any offensive stats. If he is unable to suit up against the Bengals on Sunday, Daniel Brown may see increased snaps for the first time this season.

Wesco didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 54-13 loss to New England.
Analysis: Wesco's yet to catch a pass this season. The 26-year-old fullback is still in search of his first career touchdown, and the search doesn't appear close to concluding.
Oct 24, 2021 6:11 PM EST
Wesco didn't catch his only target in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Titans.
Analysis: The fullback was targeted for the first time this season here but is yet to touch the ball through four weeks. Wesco's fantasy value is nonexistent.
Oct 3, 2021 8:41 PM EST
Wesco didn't touch the ball in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Patriots and finishes the season with a five-yard catch on two targets and one rushing attempt for no gain.
Analysis: The fullback and depth tight end worked almost exclusively in a blocking role and has just five touches through two NFL seasons. Wesco, whom the Jets selected in the fourth round of the 2019 draft, will likely remain on the roster next season but is unlikely to see his role grow much.
Jan 3, 2021 6:32 PM EST
Wesco (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Wesco has resided on IR since suffering an ankle injury in Week 8 against the Chiefs. The second-year tight end should return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He'll slot in as the No. 3 tight end behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.
Dec 12, 2020 4:15 PM EST
The Jets designated Wesco (ankle) for a return from injured reserve Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Wesco has resided on IR since Nov. 9 with the ankle issue, as the team will have 21 days to activate him. Whether or not Wesco returns to the lineup shouldn't affect things from a fantasy perpsective, as he's caught one of two targets this season for five yards.
