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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ...

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.... See More ... See Less
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 rushed once for three yards and didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 13-10 overtime win over the Giants.
Gipson was shaken up at the end of his three-yard run so the Jets sent out D.J. Reed as their returner on the next of Jamie Gillan's 13 punts while Gipson recovered, but Gipson managed to return to the game. The rookie return man finished with three punt returns for 20 yards and one kickoff return for 22 yards in a game that featured 24 combined punts between the two teams.... See More ... See Less

Gipson (ankle) rushed once for 18 yards in Sunday's 20-14 win over the Eagles.

Gipson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

After getting involved with one catch and two rushing attempts in Week 4, Gipson didn't register a touch on offense in Week 5.

Jets' Xavier Gipson: Earning role on offense
Gipson caught his only target for four yards and rushed twice for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Chiefs.
Gipson earned the first three touches on offense of his NFL career. The rookie out of Stephen F. Austin has shown impressive elusiveness as a return man on special teams, so the Jets are starting to draw up some plays to get Gipson the ball in space on offense as well. He added a 22-yard kickoff return and 11-yard punt return in the SNF loss.... See More ... See Less

Gipson had two punt returns for 66 yards and a touchdown and two kickoff returns for 46 yards in Monday's 22-16 overtime win over the Bills.

He got free down the left sideline, then patiently waited for blockers to clear the way before working his way into the end zone to send the MetLife Stadium crowd into a frenzy. It was an unforgettable moment for the undrafted wide receiver out of Stephen F. Austin, who was making his NFL debut. Gipson doesn't have much of a role on offense, but he could be an asset in formats that reward return yardage.... See More ... See Less
