New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 11. He has missed the last three practices because of the injury.
Huddle Up: Initial reports indicated Ivory returned to practice over the weekend, but we should've known better with a RB who has yet to play a full season in 4 years in the league.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: A good sign that Ivory has been able to get right back on the field after the RB was dinged up in the team's Thursday exhibition opener against Indy

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ribs) left the team's preseason game with a rib injury Thursday, Aug. 7, and did not return.
Huddle Up: In what is quite possibly the least surprising development from the first night of preseason games, the oft-injured Ivory got hurt. Sounds like he'll be fine, and in what is expected to be a reduced role as the Jets' goal line guy he shouldn't be overly taxed with regards to playing time. But it serves as a reminder that Ivory isn't exactly the most durable back on the planet.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory lined up with the starters in the team's first preseason series, but later the left the game with a rib injury.
Huddle Up: Bilal Powell (hammy) was out and veteran free-agent acquisition Chris Johnson was expected to be limited, so don't read a whole lot into Ivory's start. He finished with only 17 yards on 7 carries before departing with the rib issue. Further details were sketchy, so monitor the situation.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory is likely to be the team's goal line back, according to running backs coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Before you hit the panic button on Chris Johnson's fantasy value, keep in mind that CJ?K tends to score more touchdowns from 50 yards and out than he does from five yards and in so this shouldn't ding his stats significantly. It does, however, give Ivory some value in TD-heavy scoring systems.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is probable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Good news for Ivory's fantasy owners, who will obviously be hoping for a little more than 35 yards on 9 rushes the RB had a week ago against the Ravens.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Ivory was limited for the second straight day, and is coming off a 9-35 rushing performance in Week 12 following back-to-back double-digit fantasy point games.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) was seen on the side working with trainers in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: This is an interesting development. The Jets have a pretty good matchup against the Dolphins defense this week, but Ivory hasn't done well with injuries. Keep an eye on his situation this week and be prepared to bench him.

An update on the status of New York Jets RB Chris Ivory will come Wednesday, Nov. 27. Ivory suffered an ankle sprain on his first carry in the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he was still able to rush nine times for 35 yards.
Huddle Up: Ivory's early Week 12 injury was a setback for his fantasy owners as the RB had amassed 237 rushing yards and 2 TDs over his previous 2 games. Monitor his progress this week.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory was leaned upon heavily in the Week 7 overtime victory against the New England Patriots, posting a career-high 34 carries for 104 yards. RB Bilal Powell, who had been the primary ball carrier, managed just three touches. 'Bilal only carried three times but Ivory had the hot hand and we fed him,' head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 20. 'We rode Ivory a little more than normal, but it was a good game.'
Huddle Up: This was an interesting turn of events in New York. Bilal Powell appeared to have the job largely to himself heading into Week 7. It looks like a bit of a nightmare for fantasy owners if Rex Ryan is going to go with the "hot hand" on a weekly basis.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory said he'd like to see the team run the ball more. 'I would like to see us run the ball more,' Ivory said. 'I really feel like when you can run the ball that opens up everything else. It would take a little (pressure) off (QB Geno Smith).'
Huddle Up: The Jets do have the 11th most rushing attempts in the league with 167. Ivory, meanwhile, only has 34 of those rushes for 115 yards -- less than half of starter Bilal Powell's production (87-360)-- but figures to see his usage rise with fellow RB Mike Goodson (knee) getting placed on season-ending IR Tuesday, Oct. 15.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Bilal Powell will see more touches but with Ivory and Mike Goodson back in the picture, the Jets' running back situation is one to avoid for now, and probably the rest of the year.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated in positional drills at practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Ivory, who sat out Week 4 with the injury, has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the season, gaining 72 yards on 26 carries so far. In the meantime, Bilal Powell has taken hold of the team's No. 1 RB job, and Mike Goodson is now back from suspension, meaning Ivory has a lot of work to do just to regain a semblance of fantasy relevance.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: It looks like Bilal Powell will have the backfield to himself this week, making him a good flex option.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Chris Ivory's hamstring injury is to the same hamstring he injured during training camp but at a different spot. The team is expecting Ivory to miss some time because he was slow to recover from his first hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Ivory has had trouble staying healthy, and those issues combined with Bilal Powell's impressive Week 3 showing (a career-high 149 yards on 27 carries) is bad news for Ivory's fantasy value for the foreseeable future.

New York Jets RB Alex Green worked as the No. 2 running back behind RB Bilal Powell in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills when RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) injured his hamstring in the first quarter. Green had 14 yards on five carries.
Huddle Up: Ivory cannot stay healthy. Alex Green doesn't provide much upside. Meanwhile, Bilal Powell is proving to be a big-time fantasy commodity right now.

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory left the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Ivory simply can't stay healthy. Meanwhile, Bilal Powell topped 100 yards and looks to be solidifying his hold on the Jets' gig. He may not be as dynamic as Ivory, but he's definitely more durable. So, apparently, is wet toilet tissue.

New York Jets RBs Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory will split carries in Week 1. Powell is listed as the starter, and the team confirmed Ivory would see the short-yardage and goal line work.
Huddle Up: The Jets' running back position only offers fantasy value when one of the backs is getting the bulk of the carries--preferably Ivory, the more talented of the two. With Ivory at least getting goal line work in Week 1 he's the better fantasy play; long-term, he's the significantly better play assuming he takes over the entire workload and stays healthy.
