As the Jets look to get a win down in Miami against the Dolphins, they'll do so with TE Chris Herndon playing for the first time this season.
Herndon was practicing on a limited basis -- the same as he has the past few weeks -- but was considered to be ruled out since that was the result each time. However, the Jets and Herndon feel as though he's ready to make his season debut.
It hasn't been the start to the year Herndon liked, serving a four-game suspension for pleading guilty to a DWI back in June 2018. After the suspension was over, he sustained a hamstring injury that has kept him out the past three games as well.
A favorite target of Sam Darnold last season, the Miami product put up 502 yards and four touchdowns on 39 receptions through 16 games in his rookie year. We'll see if that chemistry is still there for the athletic tight end against the Dolphins.
Unfortunately, Herndon was the only Jet teetering on the injury report to be named active.
Trumaine Johnson, who is dealing with injuries to both ankles, was announced as inactive. So were LT Kelvin Beachum and C Ryan Kalil, who joins LB C.J. Mosley -- an obvious sidelined player with his groin injury.
