He strained his hip and knee before their Week 18 game against the division rival Cleveland Browns.
Still, he was not relegated to the inactive list and played in that game.
Uzomah also suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
He was able to finish that game that got his team to the Super Bowl.
The Bengals ended up losing that game to the Los Angeles Rams.
But little did they know that he had played his final game for the Bengals.
He signed a three-year, $24 million contract with the Jets this offseason.
More importantly, he seems to be back in full strength based on this video shared by The Jets Zone’s Paul Andrew Esden Jr.

Esden tweeted, “#Jets TE CJ Uzomah (@cj_uzomah) is looking fully healthy & ready to go at @te_university.”
Uzomah Attends Tight End University
This year’s TEU will last for three days in Nashville, Tennessee and it’s an avenue to share best practices to elevate the talent level in the position.
The offseason training that those players started has become an annual league-wide event.
Over 50 tight ends attended last year and this year’s number is even bigger.
Uzomah chose to attend TEU to keep on learning at the position, especially now that he will be suiting up for a new team.
The Jets hope that the three days he spent there will help him become a consistent option on their offense.
