Ivory carried the ball eight times for 36 yards while catching one pass for 9 yards Sunday against the Texans. The Jets fell way behind in the second half of the game, causing Ivory to see fewer than 14 carries for the first time this season. Also, with Bilal Powell back in action, Ivory saw very little of the third down work. After rushing for fewer than 2.5 yards per carry in three straight weeks, he now has posted at least 4.5 in each of his last two games. furthermore, he's now posted fewer than 53 total yards in four of his last five games.
Ivory (hamstring) rushed 23 times for 26 yards and scored two touchdowns while catching all three of his pass targets for 22 yards Sunday against the Jaguars. Ivory had very little room to run and was unable to gain more than nine yards on any of his rushing attempts. Despite his ineffectiveness, the Jets tried to use him to grind out the clock late in the contest, but he forced the team to lean on the arm of Ryan Fitzpatrick to earn the victory. However, Ivory did salvage his fantasy day by scoring on a pair of short touchdown runs.
Ivory (hamstring) ran 15 times for just 17 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 34-20 loss at Oakland. Ivory got stuffed at the goal line on one particular run in the fourth quarter, and was held in check in general by a surprisingly stingy Raiders' rush defense. In fact, he had six separate runs that went for negative yardage. On a positive note, with pass-catching RB Bilal Powell (ankle) still not healthy, Ivory has been relatively productive as a pass catcher the last three games, grabbing 8-of-10 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown. Expect better production on the ground next week at home against the Jaguars.
Ivory (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. As expected, Ivory is a go Sunday and set to head the Jets' Week 8 rushing attack, with Zac Stacy and (recently activated) Stevan Ridley on hand to serve in backup/complementary roles Sunday.
Ivory (hamstring) practiced fully all week and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Ivory, who dealt with a tight hamstring in Week 7, indicated earlier this week that he was past the issue, which is supported by both his practice participation level and official injury designation. With Bilal Powell out this week, the Jets activated Stevan Ridley from the PUP list to bolster the team's backfield depth (to go along with Zac Stacy) behind Ivory.
