Bilal Powell RB NYJ Nov 17 '121 Comment

Bilal Powell (concussion, questionable) will play on Sunday against the Rams.

Powell suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of last week's game in Seattle, so it's a quick recovery for the second-year back. However, he won't have much of an impact in the game. Powell isn't worthy of a roster spot in standard 10-12 team leagues.

Bilal Powell (concussion) returned to Jets practice Friday, getting in a limited session.

Powell is officially questionable for Week 11, but it's hard to see him making an impact against the Rams if he's active. The "questionable" tag does suggest he's been medically cleared, however. Even behind lead-footed Shonn Greene, Powell isn't worth a roster spot in 10-12 team leagues.

Bilal Powell (concussion) was held out of Wednesday's practice.

It means he's unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game. Back to a strict reserve role even before his latest injury, Powell can be dropped in 12-14 team leagues.

Jets RB Bilal Powell suffered a fourth-quarter concussion against Seattle and is done for the night.

He'll be doubtful for Week 11, as well. Powell played sparingly behind Shonn Greene against the Seahawks, managing two touches for 11 yards. He can be dropped comfortably in re-draft leagues.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Powell missed two weeks with a dislocated shoulder, but practiced on a limited basis this week and is expected to be active Sunday, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. With Joe McKnight (ankle) sidelined, Powell will serve as the primary change-of-pace option to Shonn Greene.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

Powell missed the last two weeks with a dislocated shoulder and will continue to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. With Powell and Joe McKnight (ankle) sidelined, Shonn Greene has firmly entrenched himself as the Jets' featured back.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) missed Jets practice again Friday and is listed as doubtful for Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Shonn Greene may be an every-down back in the difficult matchup with Powell out and Joe McKnight still hobbled by his ankle injury. McKnight didn't practice at all this week and will be a game-time decision. Powell's status remains "week to week" with no timetable for return. He's droppable in 12-team leagues.

Bilal Powell (shoulder) is not practicing Thursday.

With the bye looming in Week 9, it wouldn't make sense to rush Powell back from a dislocated shoulder. Shonn Greene projects as a workhorse against the Dolphins once again.

Jets RB Bilal Powell (shoulder) was held out of Wednesday's practice.

The Jets have been targeting Sunday for Powell's return, but that just got a whole lot less realistic. With Shonn Greene on a mini-tear of late, Gang Green doesn't need to rush his backup. That being said, Greene should be in for a rude awakening against the Dolphins' tough run defense this Sunday.

The Jets are hopeful that Bilal Powell will be able to return from his dislocated shoulder in Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Powell is definitely out for Week 7 against the Patriots. It might make sense for the Jets to hold him out through their Week 9 bye in order to have Powell all healed up for the stretch run. The Jets are currently in first place in the AFC. While that's probably not going to last, they will need Powell healthy to keep Mark Sanchez protected well in obvious passing situations.
