Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (ribs, knee, illness) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He’s obviously not at 100% but was never in danger of missing this one. He should play his usual high-volume role today.

Recent Shark Bites

Jets HC Adam Gase tells ESPN that he would like to "lessen the load" a bit on RB Le'Veon Bell in 2020. "Hopefully, we can get some of the younger backs to where we can make a good one-two punch to where we can really excel instead of feeling like it's just all on him all the time," Gase said. Bell ranked 8th in the league in touches in his 1st season with the Jets (despite missing a game). He handled 69.8% of the team's rushing attempts and 16.1% of the targets in his 15 contests. So there's room for Bell to shed some opportunities and still rank well in those categories. Gase said in the same interview that he hopes more downfield speed in the pass-catching corps will help create space for Bell, who faced the league's 7th-highest rate of stacked boxes on run plays last year (according to NFL Next Gen Stats). With just Kenneth Dixon, 4th-rounder La'Micael Perine and former Eagle Josh Adams currently behind him on the depth chart, we're not worried about anyone stealing a damaging amount of work from the Jets starter.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) isn't listed on the final Week 15 injury report. RB Bilal Powell (ankle) has been ruled out, while RB Ty Montgomery (foot, hip) is questionable. Bell should dominate backfield touches against the Ravens on Thursday night.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) put in a full practice on Tuesday. He's on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. The Jets figure to have trouble scoring in that one, but Bell's volume keeps him in the RB2 mix.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) is "pretty close to 100 percent." That puts him on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. Bell will be a volume-based RB2 in that tough spot.

The Jets have downgraded RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That leaves the backfield to RBs Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery. Over the past 5 weeks, Powell has totaled 25 carries and 6 targets to Montgomery's 8 carries and 4 targets. We'd bet on Powell leading the way tomorrow, but there's no way to know for sure what the split will look like. There's at least upside vs. Miami's 28th-ranked RB defense.
