    Jets RB Chris Ivory runs wild in Sunday victory

    Jets featured back Chris Ivory overcame a quad issue and rushed 29 times for a career-high 166 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Dolphins in London.Ivory was active last week against Philadelphia but never got on the field due to the physical problem, but he looked fully healthy Sunday. Backup Bilal Powell suffered a groin injury in the first half and did not return, which certainly gave more looks to Ivory. It's unclear if Powell will miss any additional time, though Ivory is the clear top back on the depth chart and will see a vast majority of the touches in Week 6 against Washington after a Week 5 bye.

    Jets RB Bilal Powell leads team in rushing Sunday

    Jets running back Bilal Powell led the Jets' backfield Sunday against the Eagles, but he rushed for only 31 yards on 10 carries and caught seven passes on eight targets for 44 yards. Starting running back Chris Ivory was active for the game after being listed as questionable with a quad injury, but he never got on the field, leaving Powell to get most of the touches. Backup Zac Stacy rushed twice for three yards and caught two passes on two targets for minus-2 yards, so while Powell was hardly impressive, Stacy was even worse. Given that Ivory was reportedly close to playing, it's possible that he could return in Week 4 against the Dolphins in London, though if he has to sit out, Powell would get the start.
