New York 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.
New York Jets running back Bilal Powell caught one pass for 12 yards Sunday against the Miami Dolphins before leaving the game with a groin injury.
Powell left the game early and didn't return. Before leaving the contest, he wasn't getting nearly as much work as he had early in the season when he was almost sharing touches equally with Chris Ivory . He didn't have a single carry, and his reception was on the only target he saw.

Ivory was active for last week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles as well, but he never took the field. However, he's a "full go," according to coach Todd Bowles.
Ivory is fully expected to get a majority of the backfield touches Sunday, though Bilal Powell has played well enough to keep getting a few of his own.
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.
