Crowell (toe) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Crowell was already ruled out for Saturday's game against the Texans -- marking the first absence of his NFL career -- but will now miss the final three games of the season. The 25-year-old will finish 2018 with 143 carries for 685 yards (4.8 YPC) and two touchdowns while adding 21 receptions for 152 yards. Elijah McGuire should be first in line for backfield duties with Trenton Cannon also in the mix, though Cannon is questionable with a toe injury for Saturday's game.
With Crowell set to miss the first game of his NFL career, Elijah McGuire (ankle) and/or Trenton Cannon will work as the team's primary backs in Week 15. McGuire's status remains worth monitoring, given that he's officially listed as questionable by the Jets.
Crowell (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
Crowell's status for Saturday's game against the Texans thus remains cloudy, but fortunately for the Jets, both Elijah McGuire (ankle) and Trenton Cannon (toe) returned to practice Wednesday after being listed as non-participants Tuesday. Added clarity with regard to the team's Week 15 backfield situation should arrive after Thursday's practice, the team's last session in advance of Saturday's tilt.
Crowell is slated to go down as a non-participant in practice for the second straight day, clouding his status for Saturday's game against the Texans. All three of the Jets' running backs on the 53-man roster are banged up at the moment, but both Elijah McGuire (ankle) and Trenton Cannon (toe) seem to be further along in their respective recoveries, as the two donned helmets and were working out on the side Wednesday. The Jets will presumably wait and see what Crowell is able to do at the team's final practice Thursday before rendering a verdict on his status for the weekend.
Crowell (foot) was listed as a non-participant at Tuesday's practice, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
The listing wasn't unexpected after Crowell failed to work out with teammates on the field in the portion of practice that was available to the media. Perhaps more noteworthy, Crowell was spotted with a walking boot covering his left foot, per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record, suggesting he may be dealing with something more significant than minor soreness after exiting the Week 14 win over the Bills. Crowell hasn't missed any games this season but has been a mainstay on the Jets' injury reports with foot, toe and ankle issues, so his latest related setback could prompt the team to take a cautious approach with him down the stretch. If Crowell ends up sitting out or having his workload limited during the Jets' final three games, Elijah McGuire would handle the brunt of the carries.
