Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey recently suggested he will adjust his system as necessary to suit Forte's strengths, ESPN.com reports.
Asked how Forte will fit in his scheme, Gailey simply replied, "That's not the question. The question is, how do we adjust the system to fit Matt Forte?" Fortunately for all parties, Forte is one of the better pass-catching backs in NFL history, which should make him a natural fit in Gailey's spread attack. Bilal Powell will likely have a role and Khiry Robinson could also be in the mix, but the Jets seemingly intend for Forte to join Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker as centerpieces of the offense. The team has an unimpressive group of tight ends, along with shaky depth behind its top duo at wideout.
Revis (wrist) missed his second consecutive practice Saturday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports
Revis had offseason surgery on his wrist, which caused him to miss the Jets' offseason program. He was considered day-to-day entering training camp, and the Jets are not likely to put their veteran cornerback on the field until he is completely recovered.
Richardson (suspension) has been excused from practice and is expected to miss a couple of days for personal reasons, the New York Daily News reports.
Richardson's personal matter will probably prevent him from practicing over the weekend, but his brief upcoming absence has been excused by coach Todd Bowles. Although Richardson is still suspended for Week 1, the Jets should still be looking forward to his return to training camp.
Heinicke will be out for three months after tearing a tendon in his left ankle in mid-July, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.
Heinicke sustained the injury after attempting to enter his friend's home after the two had been locked out. The third-string quarterback attempted to budge the door open with his foot, but slipped and had his foot go through the window, resulting in a fairly serious injury. Clearly, this is a freak injury and the Vikings are hoping for a recovery by mid-season, but the damage to Heinicke's ankle only holds fantasy importance in the deepest of leagues.
