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.... See More ... See Less
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.

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.

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.

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Lands on preseason PUP list
The Jets placed Uzomah (leg) on the PUP list Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Once he returns to the field, Uzomah will be in line to reclaim his role in a Jets tight-end corps led by Tyler Conklin.... See More ... See Less
Jets' C.J. Uzomah: Limps off practice field
Uzomah left Friday's training session early due to a right leg injury, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports.
Uzomah limped off the practice field early Friday, so his status will need to be monitored. The 30-year-old tight end handled a depth role in his debut season for the Jets last year, tallying a 21-232-2 receiving line in 15 appearances. It remains to be seen whether Uzomah's injury will force him to miss any significant time.... See More ... See Less
