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.

The preliminary diagnosis of Bilal Powell is that he dislocated his right shoulder in Sunday's win over the Colts.
He'll be out indefinitely. The Jets will likely turn back to Shonn Greene as their primary runner, with Joe McKnight in the pace-change and passing-down role. Powell had been key to New York's offense because he can protect the quarterback on passing downs and catch the ball out of the backfield. Wait for more reports on the severity, but Powell is looking drop-able in fantasy leagues.

Bilal Powell left Sunday's Week 6 game against the Colts with a shoulder injury and will not return.
Powell went down in the third quarter and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the day. He had four rushes for 14 yards and a one-yard reception before leaving. Joe McKnight came on as Shonn Greene's backup and broke off a 61-yard run near the end of the third quarter.

Bilal Powell played more snaps than Shonn Greene for the second straight week Monday night.
Powell saw 25 snaps while Greene was at 24. In Week 4, Powell played 32 snaps compared to 18 for the "starter." We have a committee spearheaded by two below-average runners operating behind a struggling offensive line. Neither one projects as a real fantasy asset going forward.
