  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Remains on schedule

    Vera-Tucker (Achilles) is expected to be ready for training camp, according to head coach Robert Saleh, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    The expectation has been for Vera-Tucker to be ready for training camp since OTAs took place in May. However, Saleh's reaffirmation of this Tuesday, with another month crossed off the calendar, provides greater confidence the veteran should be healthy going into the 2024 campaign.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Still not ready

    Vera-Tucker (Achilles) hasn't been cleared for football activities yet, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Making progress

    Vera-Tucker (Achilles) said Wednesday that he's "feeling good" and is "definitely on pace for a good start to the season," Caroline Hendershot of the Jets' official site reports.

    Vera-Tucker suffered a torn Achilles' tendon Oct. 8 against the Broncos, but the veteran offensive lineman has made positive progress in his recovery from surgery and could be ready to practice by the time training camp begins in late July. After playing right tackle for the Jets prior to suffering his season-ending injury, Vera-Tucker may move inside to play right guard in 2024.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Will play right guard in 2024

    Vera-Tucker (Achilles) said Wednesday it's "comforting" to know he'll be sticking at one position in 2024 as the Jets' starting right guard, Randy Lange of the team's website reports.

    Vera-Tucker will kick back inside this coming season after bouncing all over the offensive line throughout his first three years in the NFL. He served as the Jets' starting right tackle for five games in 2023 prior to sustaining a torn Achilles' tendon, but he said his rehab is going well, and the expectation is that he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2024 campaign. Barring further injuries or additions, the Jets' offensive line appears set from left to right. Tyron Smith and John Simpson will start on the left side, Joe Tippmann, will start at center, and Vera-Tucker and Morgan Moses will start on the right side.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Option picked up

    Jets GM Joe Douglas said Saturday that the team will exercise Vera-Tucker's (Achilles) 2025 fifth-year option, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    This was a no-brainer move for New York. Even though Vera-Tucker has 22 games over the last two seasons with significant triceps and Achilles injuries, he's been the the Jets' best lineman when on the field. Adding offensive line help has been an offseason priority for the Jets, who signed LT Tyron Smith and OG John Simpson while trading for RT Morgan Moses. The Jets also selected OT Olumuyiwa Fashanu in the first round of this week's NFL Draft. Vera-Tucker was playing right tackle at the time of his season-ending torn Achilles. He figures to kick back inside to guard in 2024.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Moved to IR

    The Jets placed Vera-Tucker (Achilles) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Vera-Tucker will go on IR for the remainder of the season after he suffered an Achilles tear Sunday versus Denver. This marks the 24-year-old's second season-ending injury in as many seasons, and he will now turn his attention to recovering ahead of the 2024 campaign. With Vera-Tucker done for the year, expect rookie second-rounder Joe Tippmann to move up as the Jets' starting right guard.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Out for season

    Vera-Tucker will miss the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Vera-Tucker's season is over after suffering the injury during Sunday's win against the Broncos. With the 2021 second-round pick done for the year, Joe Tippmann is expected to shift over to right guard and Connor McGovern should now start at center.

  • Jets' Alijah Vera-Tucker: Expected to miss time

    Vera-Tucker will undergo further testing, including an MRI, for the calf injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Broncos, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Vera-Tucker was unable to return to the game after suffering the injury, and it's possible that he's injured his Achilles. Further testing will eventually provide clarity on the 2021 first-round selection's injury.
