Elijah Moore News
New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore (quadriceps) has seen his rookie campaign come to a close, as head coach Robert Saleh closed the door on a potential Week 18 return Friday. Moore had been working with trainers earlier in the week in hopes of suiting up for the first time since Week 13, but he will remain on injured reserve when the Jets take on the Bills. Moore finished with a flurry, hauling in touchdown passes in four of his last five games; he accumulated 43 catches for 538 yards and five touchdowns in just 11 contests. New York will be shorthanded out wide with Braxton Berrios (quadriceps) highly unlikely to take the field, leaving Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole as Zach Wilson's top passing game options against a top-tier Bills defensive unit.
New York Jets rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore (quadriceps) is working on a side field with trainers on Thursday. However, the New York Post's Brian Costello thinks it's unlikely that Moore will come off Injured Reserve to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday after not practicing for a month. The 21-year-old was turning into a star before his injury, catching 28 of 45 targets for 392 yards and five touchdowns in five games from Weeks 9 to 13. His long-term future is extremely bright, and he'll no doubt be highly coveted in fantasy drafts this fall, but there's a good chance he'll end his rookie season with a 43-538-5 line in 11 games played. Jamison Crowder appears to be trending towards a return this weekend, so he and Braxton Berrios might be the Jets top two receivers against Buffalo.
New York Jets rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore (quadriceps) will not return in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but head coach Robert Saleh said the team is still hopeful that Moore can return for the regular season finale. Moore remains on Injured Reserve and will miss his fourth straight game. He's also on the Reserve/COVID-19 list for the time being. The 21-year-old had become the team's No. 1 receiver before his injury and has a bright future. However, if he does return in Week 18, he might be a risky fantasy option for those still playing for a championship given his long layoff. With Moore out again and Jamison Crowder looking likely to miss a second straight game, Braxton Berrios could be heavily involved against a thin Tampa secondary this Sunday.
