  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Likely to be released by New York

    Uzomah (knee) is expected to be released by the Jets this offseason, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran tight end finished the 2023 season on injured reserve after spraining his MCL in Week 13. His signing has proved to be a disaster for Jets GM Joe Douglas, as Uzomah has produced just 29 catches for 290 yards and three touchdowns across 27 contests with the team. Entering the final year of a three-year, $24 million deal, Uzomah is due an $8 million salary in 2024. The Jets can save $5.3 million against the cap by releasing the 31-year-old, leaving behind over $5.9 million in dead money.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Officially placed on IR

    The Jets placed Uzomah (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Uzomah's move to IR comes after he sustained a sprained MCL of his right knee in the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Falcons. Given that he will have to spend a minimum of four games on IR, Uzomah won't be eligible to take the field until Week 18 against the Patriots, though the Jets could opt to shut him down for the season if the team is eliminated from playoff contention. The Jets activated tight end Kenny Yeboah (hamstring) from IR in a corresponding transaction.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Expected to go on IR

    Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Uzomah (knee) will go on injured reserve.

    Uzomah sprained his MCL in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. Once he's officially placed on injured reserve, he'll be sidelined for a minimum of four weeks, so he won't be eligible to play before Week 18 against the Patriots. Tyler Conklin and Jeremy Ruckert had already been working ahead of Uzomah and will remain New York's top two tight ends.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Suffers MCL sprain

    Uzomah suffered an MCL sprain during the Jets' 13-8 loss to the Falcons on Sunday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

    Uzomah is in danger of missing time after exiting Sunday's game due to an MCL injury. The 2015 fifth-round pick has caught eight of 12 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in eight games played this season.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Downgraded to out

    Uzomah (knee) is out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    The tight end exited early in the game before recording a stat. Uzomah has eight catches for 58 yards and a touchdown in 2023.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Exits with knee issue

    Uzomah (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    Uzomah seems to have sustained a knee injury early into the Jets' Week 13 contest, and Jeremy Ruckert will likely see increased offensive snaps for the time being.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Penalty negates teammate's TD

    Uzomah caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 16-12 loss to the Raiders.

    Another week, another costly mistake by Uzomah. After dropping what should have been an easy touchdown in the previous game, Uzomah nullified a Breece Hall touchdown with a holding penalty in the second quarter in Vegas. The veteran tight end has yet to exceed two catches or 19 yards in a game this season.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Drops would-be TD in loss

    Uzomah caught two of five targets for 11 yards in Monday's 27-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Uzomah dropped what should have been an easy touchdown on a ball that hit him in the chest in the final minute. Monday marked the first time this season that Uzomah was targeted more than twice, but he was unable to take advantage of the additional volume.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Only catch by a TE in Week 8

    Uzomah caught his only target for 19 yards in Sunday's 13-10 overtime win over the Giants.

    Uzomah was the only tight end to log a catch for the Jets in this one, as Tyler Conklin and Jeremy Ruckert combined for zero receptions on three targets. Uzomah has yet to see more than two targets in a game this season.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: No catches in Week 6 win

    Uzomah didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 20-14 win over the Eagles.

    Tyler Conklin has at least three catches in each of New York's last five games, while Uzomah has just five targets all season. Uzomah and Jeremy Ruckert now have four catches apiece on the year, so the veteran has a tenuous grasp on the No. 2 tight end role heading into a Week 7 bye.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Outproduced by Conklin

    Uzomah caught both of his targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Broncos.

    Fellow tight end Tyler Conklin led the team with 67 receiving yards, and Conklin has 203 yards to Uzomah's 22 in 2023. With just four targets on the season, Uzomah hasn't played a significant role in New York's passing game, and that's unlikely to change in Week 6 against the Eagles.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Finds paydirt Sunday

    Uzomah caught his only target for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Chiefs.

    Zach Wilson delivered arguably the best performance of his NFL career in the narrow defeat, and a one-yard touchdown pass to Uzomah off a beautiful play fake was among the young quarterback's highlights. Tyler Conklin mustered 58 yards on six targets and second-year tight end Jeremy Ruckert got in on the action with a pair of catches, so Uzomah still lacks a path to significant volume in a crowded tight end room despite scoring his first touchdown of 2023.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Makes first catch of season

    Uzomah caught his only target for nine yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Patriots.

    Uzomah has been targeted only once through three games, while Tyler Conklin has nine catches on 13 targets heading into a Week 4 home game against the Chiefs. With Conklin dominating targets among the team's tight ends, Uzomah has been a nonfactor in the passing game, and that's unlikely to change moving forward.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: One catch in Saturday's win

    Uzomah caught his only target for six yards in Saturday's 27-0 preseason win over the Panthers.

    Uzomah battled a leg injury in June and July, but the veteran tight end has been cleared to practice for a while and played without limitations while in the game Saturday. Tyler Conklin and Uzomah once again should see the lion's share of playing time at tight end for the Jets in 2023, though second-year pro Jeremy Ruckert also may enter the rotation. Ruckert injured his shoulder Saturday.

  • Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Cleared to practice

    Uzomah (leg) passed his physical Wednesday and was reinstated from the active/PUP list, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Now that the tight end has been activated, he's eligible to take part in practices. The 30-year-old recorded a 21-232-2 receiving line in 15 games with the Jets last season. Heading into his second season in New York, Uzomah is once again slated to work behind Tyler Conklin, who hauled in 58 passes in 2022.
