EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The game was already long decided when Michael Carter found himself wide open in the end zone — and dropped a sure touchdown pass.
It was just that kind of day for the New York Jets: Stumbles, fumbles and bumbles, especially on offense.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets placed rookie left guard Alijah Vera-Tucker and cornerback Michael Carter II on the COVID-19 list, adding to a growing group of sidelined players.
The team also announced Tuesday it activated backup quarterback Mike White from the COVID-19 list after he missed four games.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore is dealing with a quadriceps injury that could sideline him for the game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
The team's leading receiver with 43 receptions sat out practice Wednesday and coach Robert Saleh said Moore would be day to day as the Jets monitor the injury.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Michael Carter has the swagger of a veteran. And it's not about cockiness for the New York Jets rookie running back.
It's all about supreme self-confidence.
So when Carter was asked if he still felt a bit like a rookie making his way through nine NFL games, his answer was hardly a surprise.
Joe Flacco is still Joe Cool — or Cool Joe — to his New York Jets teammates.
The 36-year-old veteran quarterback will make his first start this season when the Jets host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Michael Carter stands out on the football field — and it’s not just because of his elusive moves.
The New York Jets rookie running back is always bouncing around with a child-like exuberance that rubs off on his teammates.
Georgia State (0-1) at No. 24 North Carolina (0-1), Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EDT (RSN).
Line: UNC by 25 ½, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Sam Howell and North Carolina didn’t open with the high-powered offense from the past two seasons.
Instead, the quarterback and the 24th-ranked Tar Heels host Georgia State on Saturday night aiming to regroup from a loss and an unexpectedly rough offensive showing.
North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell will get much of the attention this season from defenses preparing to slow the No. 10 Tar Heels.
He's gotten plenty from Virginia Tech as the teams prepare for their season opener on Friday night, but Howell is far from the only Tar Heel what has the Hokies' attention.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Robert Saleh looks at the New York Jets' running backs and sees so many possibilities.
Speed. Power. Athleticism. Versatility.
Some — or all — of those descriptions can be applied to Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson, La'Mical Perine, Josh Adams, Austin Walter and rookie Michael Carter.

CAMP SITE: Florham Park, New Jersey
LAST YEAR: In a word: awful. The Jets had a franchise-worst 0-13 start and finished with the second-worst record in team history.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Zach Wilson was walking off the field after his final practice of New York Jets minicamp when fellow rookie Michael Carter shared an observation that resonated with him.
“It’s hard to know sometimes,” the running back said to Wilson, “if it was a good or a bad day.”
