Injury Bilal Powell misses practice Wednesday
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 18, 1:45 pm

New York Jets
Did not practice: Wilkerson, Robby Anderson (ankle), Bilal Powell (calf) Limited: Ealy, Matt Forte #nyj (Brian Costello on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Powell missed Week 6 with a calf injury and is off to a bad start for Week 7. In his absence, Matt Forte handled 17 touches with Elijah McGuire accumulating 10. The Jets travel to Miami in Week 7.

Jets injuries: Mo Wilkerson and Bilal Powell missed practice for the second straight day. Matt Forte was limited. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like we're trending towards Powell being inactive and a shared backfield with Forte and rookie Elijah McGuire against the Patriots. McGuire would have some flex appeal in this scenario.

Calf strain

FFToday's Take: With the exception of his 190-total yard explosion in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Powell has been a bitter disappointment for those owners who expected him to take over the Jets' backfield and benefit from excessive garbage time. Elijah McGuire may be forced to carry the load in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots should Powell and Matt Forte (toe) be unable to go.

FFToday's Take: Teams are not required to file practice reports during the preseason, but we do know Powell missed the exhibition opener and some practices last week. The Jets do not figure to be all that competitive this season, but it could mean Powell and Forte emerge as PPR stars given how barren and/or unproven the depth chart is at receiver. Powell is a RB3 in PPR, while Forte should be considered a back-end RB4.
