Crowell rushed seven times for 19 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bills.
Despite his ugly performance, Crowell was easily New York's best fantasy player here by virtue of scoring the team's lone touchdown. Still, he was bottled up outside of that five-yard score and an 18-yard run. Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon combined for 10 carries themselves, so Crowell's workload is looking quite shaky heading into the Week 11 bye.
Crowell gained 49 yards on 13 carries and caught one pass for 11 additional yards during Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Dolphins.
Crowell, who led the team in touches, mustered 3.8 yards per carry and recorded a long gain of 12 yards. He was targeted just twice in the passing game, though he did manage to turn his only catch into a first down. Crowell appeared to be heading into a favorable matchup on paper, but the porous Miami run defense was perhaps aided by a soggy field that drew some criticism leading up to the game. Nevertheless, Crowell should lead the team in carries next Sunday against the Bills and will look to do more with his touches against a struggling opponent.
Crowell (foot/ankle) produced just 25 yards on 13 carries and caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bears.
Crowell struggled to find room on the ground, as Chicago was able to key on the run with New York shorthanded at the wide receiver position. Trenton Cannon added six carries and three catches out of the backfield, primarily operating on passing downs. Crowell's workload is game flow dependent, so it could tick up in what should be a competitive Week 9 tilt against the Dolphins.
Crowell (foot/ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Crowell didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday the past two weeks and hadn't logged a full session since Week 5. His injured foot is apparently showing improvement, and there's also potential for workload growth after Bilal Powell (neck) was placed on injured reserve. Granted, the Jets likely will have Trenton Cannon take on some of Powell's vacated snaps, with Elijah McGuire (foot) potentially entering the mix as soon as Week 9. Crowell is a strong bet to get the start and lead the team in carries Sunday in Chicago.
Though Crowell ranks sixth in the NFL with 459 rushing yards on the season, he's essentially split duties with Powell through the first seven weeks, logging 81 carries to the latter's 80. While Powell's absence creates a major void in the New York offense that Crowell will likely be asked to fill to some extent, it's not guaranteed that he'll benefit from a major spike in snaps and/or touches. For one, Crowell has been battling a foot/ankle injury the past few weeks, which could make the Jets hesitant to overwork him. Secondly, the Jets seem to place value in having a change-of-pace option to complement the 5-foot-11, 225-pound Crowell's bruising style between the tackles. Rookie Trenton Cannon proved effective in relief of Powell in the Week 7 loss to the Vikings and could remain a key part of the backfield mix in the event the Jets want to make it a priority to keep Crowell fresh. Elijah McGuire (foot), who is eligible to return from IR beginning in Week 9, also looms as another possibility to absorb some of Powell's old responsibilities.
