Jets coach Todd Bowles said it's too early to tell if TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be active this week.
Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from suspension, but is reportedly out of shape after his two-week layoff. With Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson dealing with injuries, the Jets may be forced to play him despite his conditioning. Seferian-Jenkins looks likely to be on a snap count if active. He should be avoided as a Week 3 streamer.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has "got to get in a little better shape. That's to be expected with two weeks off, but he'll get going." Bowles said it's too early to say for sure that Seferian-Jenkins will be active on Sunday against the Dolphins. It would be a surprise if he's not. The Jets have four other tight ends on the roster, but three are dealing with injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from a two-game suspension.


Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Austin Seferian-Jenkins' DUI arrest while playing for Tampa Bay. The Jets' tight end, coming off a two-game suspension stemming from the arrest, says he has gone 242 days without alcohol. He hopes his story can serve as an example to others

Shouldn't a pro athlete be able to stay in shape during a "two week layoff"?

My exercise bike collapsed after about 15 years.
Bought a new one from Sears, the first time I tried it a pedal fell off.
On Sunday to see how much conditioning I lost I pumped my piston Three times in 27 minutes

JMC-Agree you got to figure a Pro can stay in reasonable shape. Sounds like the guy is a f up.

I think people are maybe reading too much into the "in-shape" comment.

I am sure ASJ is "in-shape", as he has worked very hard throughout the off-season to lose weight and add muscle. His suspension allowed him to work out in the facility, but not practice with the team.

Bowles is probably talking about him being in "game-shape" rather than "in-shape". You can be in-shape, but you really need to practice with the team to be in true game shape.

Two weeks off (non injury) shouldn't be cause of losing game shape IMO. Perhaps I'm being harsh but it's how I see it

At the end of the day, I am rooting for the guy. He has battled the booze and, by early accounts, he has won.

He has re-dedicated himself to his craft, and looked very good in the off-season. If he plays anywhere near his talent level, he will be a real asset to the O.

Plus, at least he's not Jace 'effing Amaro. That bastard really was a useless tub of lard.

I root for everyone wearing Jets' laundry for as long as they wear Jets' laundry, but sometimes they do things that are a bit ......exasperating

I think it was Russel Baker who first used the laundry analogy about fans' changing their opinions of players depending on which team they played for. It as probably in one of his Observer columns in the NY Times. Jerry Seinfeld & others have also used the analogy.
