Powell rushed 22 times for 122 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Bills. He finishes the season with 131 carries for 722 yards and three touchdowns and 58 catches for 388 receiving yards and two scores. Powell played very well down the stretch in place of the injured Matt Forte (knee), rushing for over 120 yards in two of his last four games. Forte is expected back next season, so it's tough to see Powell getting enough opportunities to be a major fantasy contributor, though if Forte falls victim to the injury bug again, Powell has the ability to take over.
Powell (knee/illness) is slated to start in place of Matt Forte in Sunday's game against the Bills. Fellow RBs Brandon Wilds and Brandon Burks are also on hand, but Powell will give it a go Sunday as long as his knee holds up.
Powell (knee/illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Meanwhile, ESPN's Rich Cimini indicates that it's his sense that Powell will "try to play" Sunday, but that's not a lock to occur. With Matt Forte out and Brandon Wilds (hamstring) also questionable, Brandon Burks was notably the only Jets' running back to practice fully Friday.
Powell (knee) didn't practice Thursday. Matt Forte also sat Thursday's practice, with the status of both backs worth monitoring as Friday's final Week 17 injury report approaches. If one or both end up out or limited Sunday against the Bills, added opportunities would be on tap for Brandon Wilds and Brandon Burks.
Powell (knee) didn't practice Wednesday. The same applies to Matt Forte, who was inactive in Week 16. More on Powell's status no later than Thursday, but as long as he and Forte are banged up, Brandon Wilds and Brandon Burks profile as the 4-11 Jets' top healthy running backs.
