One of the stalwarts of the New York Jets' offense won't be returning to the team in 2016.

Running back Chris Ivory, who racked up more than 1,000 yards last season, will sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars after NFL free agency opens on Wednesday, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

In addition, the Jaguars are planning to release Toby Gerhart on Wednesday, a source told Rapoport.

Related players: T.J. Yeldon

Fantasy Impact:

Ivory reportedly got approximately $6 million a year which is quite surprising considering the team's other needs, the presence of T.J. Yeldon and the fact that Ivory is mainly a two-down player. The signing is obviously bad news for Yeldon's stock, which is dependent on expected volume. Ivory is a pretty good runner and it's conceivable that the duo will form a timeshare in 2016.

Jets RB Chris Ivory (knee, probable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 17. Ivory missed some snaps in Week 16 but returned to finish the game.

Friday, January 1, 2016, 6:26pm

Jets RB Bilal Powell (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 17. Powell hasn’t been on the injury report in the last five weeks, but dealt with an ankle injury earlier in the year. He’s looking very questionable for Week 17. If he’s out, Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley would pick up extra snaps, with Ivory likely to assume Powell’s role in the passing game. The Jets play early on Sunday.

Jets RB Chris Ivory (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Ivory missed some snaps in Week 16 but returned to finish the game.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Jets RB Bilal Powell (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 11. If Powell returns, and it looks like he will, he’ll put a sizable dent in Chris Ivory’s upside as a receiver. In four games with Powell, Ivory was only targeted 2.0 times per game compared to 3.3 targets per game with Powell sidelined. His carries are very safe, however.

Jets Beat: Stevan Ridley could get some work Week 9

Saturday, November 7, 2015, 10:08am

NJ.com - [Full Article]

It's pretty clear that, if health wasn't an issue, Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley would be the Jets' top two running backs, in that order.

Yes, Ridley is physically recovered from major knee surgery. But he needs to establish timing in the Jets' offense. Remember, it's been a long time — since last Oct. 12 — that he played in a game. Getting back into game shape and rhythm doesn't happen immediately. Ridley came off the physically unable to perform list for last week's game in Oakland, but part of the reason why he didn't get any carries is that the Jets had to abandon the run game, in order to catch up.

I think there's a good chance you'll see Ridley get some work this week against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact:

Ridley looks like the handcuff for Ivory owners based on what the author of this story said.The Jets want to keep Ivory fresh down the stretch, since his bruising running style can really punish his body. Ridley gives the Jets a talented back — he has more talent than Bilal Powell or Zac Stacy — who can relieve Ivory, the story said. The piece also said Ridley can't just step into that No. 2 running back role immediately. It'll take him a couple games to work his way back.

Friday, November 6, 2015, 6:19pm

Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 9. Ivory will be fine for a good matchup against the Jaguars.

Thursday, November 5, 2015, 6:20pm

Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) took full practice reps again Thursday. Ivory should be fine for a good matchup against the Jaguars.

Wednesday, November 4, 2015, 6:02pm

Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday. Ivory should be fine for a good matchup against the Jaguars.

Stevan Ridley comes off PUP list

Saturday, October 31, 2015, 5:54pm

NewYorkJets.com - [Full Article]

The Jets have activated running back Stevan Ridley from their Physically Unable to Perform list and have waived/injured wide receiver Chris Owusu.

Ridley, who has been rehabbing from a season-ending knee injury in New England's sixth game of last season, was eligible to come off of PUP last week against his former team but head coach Todd Bowles decided to go with Chris Ivory, Zac Stacy and fullback Tommy Bohanon in the backfield.

Bowles was asked after today's practice about Ridley's possible activation. "He's full speed," the coach said. "If we decide to do something with him, we'll be real comfortable."

Fantasy Impact:

Ivory is a bit banged up and Bilal Powell is out this week so the Jets may need Ridley's services. He'll be behind Ivory and Stacy.

Friday, October 30, 2015, 6:45pm

Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 8. Ivory played through the injury last week. We are assuming he’ll do so again, and the probable tag backs this up.

Friday, October 30, 2015, 6:45pm

Jets RB Bilal Powell (ankle, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 8. With Powell out, Zac Stacy likely backs up Chris Ivory, though Stevan Ridley should be active.
