  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Finishes first year with 21 catches

    Gispon caught one of five targets for four yards in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Patriots. He finishes the season with 21 catches for 229 yards on 38 targets.

    Gipson didn't score a receiving touchdown in his rookie season, but he posted a rushing score and a punt return touchdown. He held down the punt and kick returner roles for the entire season -- posting 319 punt return yards and 511 kickoff return yards -- and saw more involvement on offense in the second half of the campaign. The 5-foot-9 Gipson likely profiles as more of a depth contributor than a consistent starter at wide receiver, but a spot on the 53-man roster will be his to lose next season.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Posts 153 all-purpose yards in loss

    Gipson secured four of seven targets for 33 yards, rushed once for eight yards, ran back three kickoffs for 82 yards and returned two punts for 30 yards in the Jets' 37-20 loss to the Browns on Thursday night.

    Gipson had a particularly busy night in defeat, with both his reception and receiving yardage totals serving as the second highest of his young career. The rookie's target tally also qualified as a new high-water mark, and he's now logged one rush attempt in four of his last five games. Gipson could be a candidate for extended playing time in the Week 18 road finale against the Patriots on Jan. 7, and it's possible he'll have Zach Wilson (concussion) back under center for that contest.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: One catch, one carry in win

    Gipson caught one of two targets for one yard and added a 16-yard run in Sunday's 30-28 win over the Commanders.

    Gipson also returned three kickoffs for 82 yards and added a nine-yard punt return. The undrafted rookie out of Stephen F. Austin has worked as a slot receiver and gadget player on offense in the second half of the season while maintaining his role as the return man on special teams. Gipson has logged multiple touches in each of the last five games, but he's finished with more than three touches only once this season.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Six targets in Week 15 loss

    Gipson caught two of six targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 30-0 loss to the Dolphins.

    Gipson tied Garrett Wilson for the team lead in receiving yards and came one target shy of Tyler Conklin's team-leading total as the entire Jets offense struggled. After posting a career-high 77 receiving yards in Week 13 and scoring his first offensive touchdown in Week 14, Gipson maintained a prominent role against the Dolphins despite his lack of success on the stat sheet, which bodes well for his potential involvement in Week 16 against the Commanders. It remains to be seen whether Zach Wilson -- who left Sunday's loss in the first half with a head injury -- or Trevor Siemian will be throwing to Gipson versus Washington.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Scores rushing TD in Week 14 win

    Gipson caught his only target for three yards and rushed once for nine yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Texans.

    Gipson scored his first offensive touchdown in the NFL on a nine-yard run in the third quarter, doubling New York's lead to 14-0. He also had three punt returns for 17 yards. Whether it's as a traditional slot receiver or a gadget player, Gipson has carved out consistent playing time in New York's offense, albeit with only a few touches per game.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Career-high 77 receiving yards

    Gipson caught five of six targets for 77 yards in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons. He also rushed once for one yard, returned one kickoff for 25 yards and totaled 45 yards on four punt returns.

    Gipson's 77 receiving yards were the most by a Jets player other than Garrett Wilson this season. He set up a second-quarter field goal with a 36-yard catch on a flea flicker and added a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter as the Jets tried to mount a comeback. The first catch came on a Tim Boyle pass, while the latter was thrown by Trevor Siemian after Boyle was benched. Despite New York's unenviable quarterback situation, Gipson's role in the offense is growing heading into a Week 14 home game against the Texans.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Two catches in Week 12

    Gipson caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Friday's 34-13 loss to the Dolphins.

    Gipson didn't see a change in role due to Allen Lazard (coach's decision) being benched, as fellow undrafted rookie Jason Brownlee took over Lazard's usual role on the outside while Gipson remained in the slot. Gipson also had one kickoff return for 28 yards.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Early fumble sets tone in loss

    Gipson caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 32-6 loss to the Bills. He also returned four kickoffs for 76 yards and lost a fumble.

    The last time these two AFC East rivals faced off, Gipson ended the game with a punt return touchdown in overtime in his NFL debut. His first return opportunity Sunday was far less successful, as Gipson fumbled on the opening kickoff. That miscue set the tone for a disastrous all-around performance from the Jets, who suffered a third consecutive loss to fall to 4-6.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Career-high three Week 10 targets

    Gipson caught one of three targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 16-12 loss to the Raiders. He also returned one kickoff for 14 yards and had one punt return for five yards.

    For the second consecutive game, Gipson finished second among the Jets' wide receivers in receiving yards behind Garrett Wilson. The undrafted rookie out of Stephen F. Austin has flashed some big-play ability, but he hasn't been targeted frequently enough to produce consistently on offense, as Gipson's three targets Sunday marked a new career high.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Career-high receiving total Monday

    Gipson caught both of his targets for 32 yards in Monday's 27-6 loss to the Chargers.

    Not only were Gipson's 32 receiving yards a career high, they marked the highest total in a game this season by a Jets wide receiver not named Garrett Wilson or Allen Lazard. That stat is more of an indictment on the state of New York's passing game than a compliment to Gipson, but the dearth of quality alternatives at least creates an opportunity for the rookie to carve out a larger role moving forward. Gipson also returned three punts for eight yards in Monday's loss.

  • Jets' Xavier Gipson: Cleared for Monday

    Gipson (ankle) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's contest against the Chargers, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Gipson hasn't been a featured member of the team's passing attack, but that could change depending on the status of Allen Lazard, who showed up on the final injury report with a knee injury and is currently listed as questionable. Gipson would slot in as the team's No. 3 target behind Garrett Wilson and Randall Cobb in the event Lazard does not play.
