2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Jets used a fourth-round pick in 2010 to acquire the Louisville product and he will get his first chance to earn extended playing time this season after sitting behind Shonn Greene, LaDainian Tomlinson and Joe McKnight as a rookie. Powell touched the rock in just two games last season, gaining 21 yards on 13 carries and showing little promise as an NFL back. However, Greene has failed to impress and McKnight is better suited running outside the tackles. There is a decent chance that Powell will sit third on the depth chart coming out of training camp but if Greene were to go down or struggle, Powell just might leapfrog McKnight to earn a more significant role.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bilal Powell absent from practice Thursday     -- Thu Dec 29 1:15 pm --

Brandon Marshall, Robby Anderson miss too
Brandon Marshall, Bilal Powell, Robby Anderson, Matt Forte, Steve McLendon among today's DNPs. (Jets on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Powell's absence is said to be related to an illness meaning the only healthy RB is Brandon Burks. If Powell, doesn't play the running back position for the Jets will be one to avoid. This team is a mess with Ryan Fitzpatrick getting the call at quarterback against the Bills.
Injury Matt Forte doubtful, knee shoulder injuries     -- Fri Dec 23 2:00 pm --

Bilal Powell, great play in Week 16
New York Jets running back Matt Forte is doubtful to play against the New England Patriots on Saturday because of knee and shoulder injuries. (AP)

FF Today's Take: With Forte out, Bilal Powell becomes an easy RB1 even against the Patriots given the amount of volume he should see. Powell has racked up 61 touches in the last two weeks.
Injury Jets aren't sure if Matt Forte will play     -- Wed Dec 21 2:15 pm --

Shoulder injury sustained last week
Bowles isn't sure if Matt Forte will be available Saturday. Forte entered the Dolphins game with a knee injury. He sustained a shoulder injury in that game. At this point, Bowles hasn't ruled out anybody for Saturday's game in New England. (

FF Today's Take: Forte had his snaps limited in Week 15 thanks to a knee injury and considering he picked up a shoulder injury last week as well, it's difficult to see him making a big impact against the Patriots this week. Expect to see Bilal Powell get the majority of touches out of the backfield for the Jets.
Injury Matt Forte is active     -- Sat Dec 17 7:00 pm --

Knee injury
For the #Jets, RB Matt Forte (knee) is officially active vs #Dolphins. Good news. He worked out pregame to be sure (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It doesn't make a lot of sense for Forte to be active given his knee injury last week and the Jets season circling the drain but nonetheless he's going to suit up against the Dolphins. It's hard to imagine Forte getting more snaps than Bilal Powell but this is certainly a ding to Powell's upside.
Injury Matt Forte to play Saturday night?     -- Thu Dec 15 2:15 pm --

Limited in practice Thursday
Six players didn't practice today for the Jets, including CB Buster Skrine, RT Brent Qvale, LB Lorenzo Mauldin and DT Steve McLendon, who has been ruled out for Saturday night. Qvale will be a game-time decision. RB Matt Forte (knee) was limited; the sense is he will play. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Forte is dealing with a torn meniscus but the team is labeling Forte as a gametime decision. Even if he plays, its hard to imagine Forte getting the lead share of carries with Bilal Powell fully capable of handling a heavy load. The Jets and Dolphins play Saturday night so we should get a clearer picture of his true status on Friday.
