Forte rushed 13 times for 27 yards and caught three of four targets for 23 receiving yards during Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off back-to-back games wth more than 90 rushing yards before their Week 11 bye, Forte struggled to make any kind of impact against the Jets' division rivals. Backup running back Bilal Powell finished with a more effective 36 yards on eight carries, though it was hardly a fantasy difference-maker. Up next is a Week 13 home game against the Colts.

Forte rushed 20 times for 98 yards and caught two of three targets for 11 receiving yards during Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

While Bilal Powell scored on a four-yard hook-and-lateral, Forte remains firmly entrenched as the top running back on the depth chart, rushing at least 20 times for the third time in the last four games. The Jets now head out on their bye before taking on the Patriots in Week 12.

Forte (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Forte was limited Wednesday, as the Jets manage his practice reps, but the running back is in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Rams. Forte is thus on track to continue to head the team's Week 10 backfield, supported by Bilal Powell.

Forte (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Forte's limitations Wednesday were presumably maintenance-related, a notion that should be confirmed Thursday by his likely return to a full practice. His status for Sunday's game against the Rams thus does not appear to be in any danger.

Forte rushed 12 times for 92 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. He also caught one of two targets for five receiving yards.

EDGE Analysis

Forte ended up with twice as many carries as Bilal Powell, though a good chunk of his fantasy production came on a 31-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Despite Ryan Fitzpatrick's struggles (he also left briefly with a knee injury), the Jets didn't turn to the run much, which obviously capped Forte's upside. Up next is a Week 10 home game against the Rams before the Jets head out on bye.

Forte (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Forte is on pace for 314 carries, a mark that he has only eclipsed once before, when he recorded 316 rushing attempts for the Bears as a rookie in 2008. He is thus on track to head the Jets' backfield once again this Sunday against the Dolphins, who have allowed an average of 135.6 yards per game on the ground to date. Only the Browns and 49ers are surrendering more.

Forte (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Forte has 55 carries over his last two games, with his limitations Wednesday presumably maintenance-related. At the halfway mark of the Jets' campaign, the veteran back is on pace for 314 carries, a mark that Forte eclipsed just once in his career, as a rookie in 2008, when he logged 316 carries.

Forte rushed 25 times for 82 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 31-28 win over the Browns. He also caught two of three targets for 16 receiving yards.

EDGE Analysis

Bilal Powell also had a productive day, rushing for 76 yards and a touchdown, but he did it on only six carries, while catching one of three targets for three yards. Forte is clearly the work horse in the Jets' backfield, and despite averaging just 3.3 yards per carry over his last two games, he's scored four touchdowns over that span. Up next is a trip to Miami to face the Dolphins.

Forte (knee) does not carry a Week 8 injury designation after practicing fully Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Forte was limited Wednesday and rested for Thursday's practice session, but his status was never thought to be in question, as Friday's full practice proved. The veteran will be available as usual Sunday versus the Browns, who've allowed the second-most rushing yards in the league thus far.

Forte (knee) did not practice Thursday, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, coach Todd Bowles indicated that Forte was rested Thursday because the Jets were practicing inside, on turf. Meanwhile, the report adds that Forte's status for Sunday's game against the Browns isn't in question. Friday's final Week 8 injury report would confirm such a notion if the Jets choose not to assign an injury designation to the running back.
