Texans running back Arian Foster carried 20 times for 102 yards (5.1 ypc) Monday at Pittsburgh, his third consecutive 100-yard rushing game and the 30th of his career. He's gone over 100 yards rushing in five of the six games he's played this season.
Andre Johnson was the less productive of the Texans wide receivers Week 7 at Pittsburgh, but he still tied for the team lead with nine targets and caught five passes for 77 yards. Only once this year has another Texan gotten more targets than him in a game, and it was Arian Foster, not DeAndre Hopkins.
The Jets signed free agent cornerback Phillip Adams and claimed receiver Walt Powell off waivers from the Cardinals. New York also waived receiver Quincy Enunwa, who likely will be placed on the practice squad.
Despite poor quarterback play and little help from the rest of the receiving corps, Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has managed to stay relevant in Fantasy. But in those weeks when he goes without a touchdown, such as Week 7 at New England, his yardage alone isn't enough to sustain his Fantasy owners.
Jets linebacker David Harris has received the green light for the Sunday battle against the Broncos. A shoulder injury prevented him from practicing Wednesday and Thursday and had him listed as questionable.
Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson each turned in his best game of the season (or close to it) Week 7 at New England, with Ivory contributing 107 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and Johnson going for 61 yards on 13 carries. Ivory had averaged just 44.4 rushing yards in his previous five games, and Johnson had averaged just 26.4.
A rather lengthy Jets injury report for their Thursday game against the Patriots is dominated by probables. The lone exceptions are wide receiver Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), both of whom have been ruled out.
