This move was considered a formality as Stacy was expected to miss the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle during last Thursday's game against the Bills. Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will likely see a few extra opportunities out of the backfield with Stacy now out, but unless starting running back Chris Ivory goes down with an injury, neither should be expected to be a reliable fantasy contributor.
Zac Stacy suffered a fractured ankle during Thursday's loss to the Bills, Seth Walder of the NY Daily News reports.
Stacy will presumably miss the rest of the season, but his absence shouldn't have much impact on the New York Jets ' running back usage unless Bilal Powell (ankle) still isn't ready for Week 11. The Jets used Chris Ivory on passing downs after Stacy left Thursday's game, and while the veteran bruiser is a perfectly capable pass-catcher, he's already getting all the work he can handle on the ground. If Powell isn't ready for Week 11, the Jets will likely sign another running back, preferably one with solid blocking and receiving skills.
Zac Stacy was ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game against the Bills due to an ankle injury, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.
Stacy had to be carted off the field after his leg was pinned underneath his body at the end of the first half. It had the look of a serious injury, and with Bilal Powell (ankle) still sidelined, the New York Jets are using Chris Ivory on passing downs, with Stevan Ridley serving as the top backup.
Zac Stacy was carted off the field with an apparent leg injury right before halftime of Thursday's game against the Bills, Chris Brown of the Bills' official website reports.
Stacy got his leg pinned underneath him while returning a kickoff on the final play of the first half. He was down on the field for a few minutes before being carted off to the locker room. With Stacy presumably out for the rest of the game, Stevan Ridley will be the lone running back behind Chris Ivory, who could now see more snaps on passing downs.
Zac Stacy carried the ball one time for three yards and caught one of his three pass targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.
Although Chris Ivory ran for only 1.1 yards per carry in this game, Stacy rarely saw the field. despite his lack of usage, his single carry was more than Stevan Ridley had, indicating that Stacy is still second on the team's depth chart at running back. However, after seeing a season-high high 13 rushing attempts in Week 6, he's only seen 11 carries in the three games since.
