Bilal Powell: Likely done in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets' signing of Ty Montgomery suggests Powell (neck) isn't likely to be back with the team in 2019, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

A 2011 fourth-round pick, Powell started 37 of his 96 games in a Jets uniform, averaging 4.4 yards on 791 carries and 7.7 yards on 204 catches. Not once did he enter a season as the team's top ballcarier, yet he led the Jets in scrimmage yards in 2013 and 2016. It isn't quite clear if the 30-year-old will continue his football career, as there hasn't been a meaningful update on his progress since he landed on injured reserve in late October. The neck injury initially was reported to be career-threatening, but former Jets coach Todd Bowles said shortly thereafter that he expected Powell to make a full recovery.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Scheduled for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell (neck) is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official website reports.

Powell has repeatedly proven to be a useful committee back with above-average receiving skills, but he'll probably find a tough market as a 30-year-old rebounding from a season-ending injury. The Jets may still try to bring him back for another year or two, especially if they end up releasing Isaiah Crowell (toe). There hasn't been any substantial update on Powell's progress since late October when former head coach Todd Bowles said he expected the running back to make a full recovery from surgery to address a bulging disc. For what it's worth, teammate Quincy Enunwa needed a full year to work his way back from a similar injury, with reports at one point suggesting he might not play again.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Expected to make full recovery from surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Todd Bowles said Thursday that he expects Powell to make a full recovery from neck surgery and resume his playing career, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Bowles indicated Powell's impending procedure would be similar to the one wideout Quincy Enunwa required in August 2017 to address a bulging disc. Using Enunwa's recovery timeline as a template, Powell would require around 10-to-12 months before gaining clearance for full contact, potentially leaving the possibility open for the veteran running back to be ready for the start of the 2019 season. While Bowles' comments offer some reassurance about Powell's long-term outlook, the soon-to-be 30-year-old may still struggle to find work when he becomes a free agent this spring.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Neck injury threatens career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell requires neck surgery to address a bulging disc, an injury that could be career-ending, Darryl Slater of reports.

Brutal news for Powell, who the Jets placed on IR 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 in once he's eligible to return from IR in Week 9.

Jets' Bilal Powell: Season likely over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Powell (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Darryl Slater of reports.

Powell sustained the neck injury in the first half of Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Vikings and wasn't able to return. The Jets didn't offer much of an update on Powell's outlook following the contest, but his move to injured reserve just a few days later implies the issue was a serious concern. Powell is technically eligible to return from IR prior to Week 16, but even if he's fully healthy two months down the road, it seems more likely the Jets will use their remaining designated-to-return spot on a player who can contribute earlier in the back half of the season. The Jets have already reserved one of those spots for fellow running back Elijah McGuire (foot), who has resumed practicing and is eligible to come off IR beginning in Week 9. Until McGuire is back in the fold, rookie Trenton Cannon should benefit from an increased role as the Jets' top change-of-pace option behind early down grinder Isaiah Crowell.
