Jets' Bilal Powell: Neck injury threatens career

Powell will require surgery to address a bulging disc in his neck, an injury that could spell an end to his career, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

It's brutal news for Powell, an impending free agent whom the Jets placed on injured reserve earlier Wednesday. In his absence, Isaiah Crowell is slated to head the team's backfield, with Trenton Cannon on hand to work in a chance-of-pace role. Additionally, Elijah McGuire (foot) could also factor into the backfield mix once he's eligible to return from IR in Week 9.
