Griffin has been a huge factor for the Jets. The 29-year-old signed in July and was expected to hold the fort until Chris Herndon returned from his four-game suspension. Instead, injuries derailed Herndon and Griffin has been the Jets’ most consistent offensive player, the story said, especially as of late. For those looking for help at TE, this week may be the last chance to grab Griffin off the wire if he's still there.
New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon made his 2019 debut on Sunday against the New York Giants, but it will be the only game he will play in this season. On Tuesday, the team made the decision to place their tight end on injured reserve after he fractured a rib during the Jets' 34-27 win over the cross-town rival Giants in Week 10.
This doesn't come as a surprise after yesterday's report that Herndon was going to miss significant time because of a rib injury. It's obviously a disappointing ending to his 2019 season. Griffin takes over at the position and has at least played well as of late.
So many high expectations for Herndon as a TE stash, and now he just seems like a wasted roster spot. Herndon had just one catch this year for seven yards, and with no real timetable, he can probably safely be dropped. Griffin takes back over at the position and heading into Week 10 had 10 catches for 116 yards the previous two weeks, and that included two touchdowns as well.

Jets TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) took full practice reps again Friday. Griffin is good to go. If Chris Herndon is out, Griffin will be streamable again.
