Jets RB Matt Forte underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday to repair his torn meniscus, HC Todd Bowles said. We don't have a rehab timetable, but any surgery for a 31-year-old RB in a major concern. Forte will need to hold off RB Bilal Powell for the lead job this summer.

11:38am EST 1/1/17

Jets RB Bilal Powell (knee, illness) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He only put in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s safe to assume that he’ll be operating at far less than 100%. That makes Powell a risky fantasy play, despite the plus matchup.

9:01pm EST 12/30/16

The Jets on Friday placed RB Matt Forte on IR. He has been playing through a meniscus tear in his right knee and is also dealing with a shoulder issue. He had already been ruled out, so this step doesn't change anything in the Jets' backfield outlook for Sunday.

Jets RB Bilal Powell (knee, illness) is questionable for this weekend's finale against the Bills. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. ESPN's Rich Cimini believes Powell will "try to play." That doesn't sound promising. Despite the plus matchup, Powell is an extremely risky Week 17 fantasy option. RB Matt Forte (knee) is out, and RB Brandon Wilds (hamstring) is questionable. Brandon Burks is the only healthy RB on the roster.

Jets RB Bilal Powell missed Thursday's practice with an illness. He was sidelined on Wednesday with a knee, and it's unclear if he would have practiced on Thursday if he wasn't sick. We should have a better idea about Powell's Week 17 status by Friday afternoon. He'll be a RB1 in fantasy lineups if he's a full-go vs. Buffalo.

11:34am EST 12/24/16

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. Bilal Powell will operate as a 3-down back and should rack up big numbers in the passing game. The Jets figure to be playing from behind, and the Pats have allowed the 2nd most RB catches this season.

The forecast for today's Jets-Patriots game calls for a 95% chance of rain with winds around 10 mph. That wind isn't a major concern, but it looks like this will be a sloppy game. We still don't expect the Pats to have any trouble when they take to the air, but the weather could push them further toward the run if (when?) they get out to a big lead.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Saturday’s game against the Patriots. He won’t play, leaving Bilal Powell as New York’s workhorse. While he might not do much on the ground against a stout New England run defense, Powell should be busy in the passing game. The Pats have allowed the 2nd most RB catches this season.

Jets HC Todd Bowles revealed that RB Matt Forte injured his shoulder in Saturday night's loss to the Jets. He'd already been playing through a torn meniscus in his knee. Forte is iffy for this weekend's game against the Patriots and won't be a fantasy option even if he suits up. RB Bilal Powell figures to be busy again.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game against the Dolphins. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is expected to be a game-time decision. He’ll be a risky fantasy play if active. If not, Bilal Powell will be a borderline RB1. Check Shark Bites around 7 pm ET Saturday for Forte’s status.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We're not sure why he or the team is pushing Forte to play in a lost season. HC Todd Bowles called him a game-time decision for Saturday night's tilt with the Dolphins. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Todd Bowles previously labeled him "day to day," but that sounds optimistic to us. We'd be awfully surprised if Forte played against the Dolphins on Saturday night. Look for Bilal Powell to operate as the Jets' feature back in that one.

Jets RB Matt Forte told reporters after Sunday's game that he felt “cracking and popping” in his injured knee. He thinks it's just a hyperextension but is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow. Consider Forte's age and the state of the Jets' season, we wouldn't be surprised if he missed the final 3 games. That'd leave Bilal Powell as the Jets' feature back. He ripped off 145 yards and 2 scores on 29 carries — plus 34 more yards on 5 catches — in the win over San Francisco.

Jets RB Matt Forte suffered a knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the afternoon. He finishes with 3 carries for 8 yards. Bilal Powell will operate as the Jets' lead back the rest of the way.

Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He was held out Wednesday, limited Thursday and a full-go on Friday. Powell can't be trusted in fantasy lineups after seeing just 4 touches last week, but his availability puts a dent in RB Matt Forte's volume projection.

Jets RB Bilal Powell (toe) returned to practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Browns this weekend, but we wouldn't consider it a lock if he's truly dealing with turf toe. We'll have another update on Powell tomorrow. He's not a Week 8 fantasy option, but his absence would be a boost to RB Matt Forte.

Jets HC Todd Bowles revealed that RB Bilal Powell is dealing with turf toe. It's unclear exactly when the injury occurred, but Powell didn't practice on Wednesday and is certainly in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Browns. Turf toe recently cost Raiders RB Latavius Murray 2 games. Powell's absence would lock in Matt Forte for a big workload in a plus matchup.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, ribs) isn’t on the team’s final injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so perhaps he’s not as banged-up as initially thought. We’re still expecting Forte to cede a decent amount of work to Bilal Powell, but he’s a fine RB2 for Week 5.

Jets RB Matt Forte was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was spotted heading for x-rays after last weekend's game, but the team never announced an injury. He's listed on this week's injury report with knee and rib issues. The fact that he practiced at all today is a good sign that he'll play against the Steelers on Sunday. But the 30-year-old is already banged-up and it's only early October. That'll make it even easier for the Jets to give Bilal Powell a bigger slice of the backfield pie.

The Jets have waived/injured RB Khiry Robinson. He reportedly re-injured the leg he broke last year during the final preseason game. The other 31 teams now have a chance to claim Robinson. If they don't, he'll remain a Jet and be placed on IR. A candidate to handle goal-line work, Robinson's departure opens up TD opportunities for Matt Forte and/or Bilal Powell.
