Jets' Matt Forte: Completes another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (hamstring) made it through Wednesday's practice without any setbacks, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

After being held out of team drills for three weeks, Forte has now logged consecutive full practices without incident. He expects to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, though he did acknowledge that the final decision will be made by the coaching staff. He also said he's surprised how long the recent injury lingered, as it was merely a Grade 1 hamstring strain, which means there wasn't a tear in the muscle. Forte said the recovery unexpectedly took almost as long as when he suffered a partial tear in his hamstring last year. Regardless, he seems to be back at full health with plenty of time to prepare for Week 1, when he and Bilal Powell figure to work in a timeshare against the Bills.

Jets' Matt Forte: Aiming to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (hamstring) expects to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. "That's my goal," Forte said Tuesday. "I don't know what the coaches' plan is, but that's my plan."

On Tuesday, Forte was a participant in team drills for the first time this month, implying that he's past his Grade 1 hamstring strain. However, declarations from players should be taken with a grain of salt, as he seemed to reference with the "coaches' plan" comment. His activity level in advance of the Jets' next exhibition may shed more light on his ability to suit up and handle game reps, during which he would continue the competition with Bilal Powell for top dog in the backfield.

Jets' Matt Forte: Participates in team drills Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (hamstring) participated in team drills on Tuesday for the first time since the end of July, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Forte's participation in team drills comes just one day after Jets head coach Todd Bowles wouldn't guarantee the running back's Week 1 availability. Forte figures to battle with Bilal Powell for first-team reps as the duo may be in line for a timeshare, with Elijah McGuire slated to provide insurance behind the top pair out of the backfield. The Jets may continue to proceed cautiously and hold Forte out of Saturday's preseason tilt against the Giants, regardless of his level of participation in practice throughout the remainder of the week.

Jets' Matt Forte: Week 1 status not guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte's (hamstring) Week 1 status was not guaranteed by coach Todd Bowles on Monday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Forte has been slowed by a hamstring problem for the past month, leaving him behind schedule as the Jets edge closer to Week 1. If he's unable to play, Bilal Powell would figure to be New York's unquestioned starting tailback, with Elijah McGuire the top option behind him.

Jets' Matt Forte: Ruled out for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forte (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Forte also won't be a participant during Thursday's practice as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury, which he suffered July 31. Bilal Powell will likely get the nod at running back barring any setbacks to his health, but Forte could return for the Jets' third preseason game against the Giants one week later.
