Powell rushed seven times for 27 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

There were questions about whether Powell would be able to play this season after he suffered what was believed to be a career-ending neck injury last season, but he returned for a ninth campaign with the Jets. The 31-year-old running back worked in a backup role, finishing with 59 carries for 229 yards and seven catches for 33 yards. It remains to be seen whether Powell opts to retire or returns for another season in a depth role.

Powell (ankle) rushed once for three yards while catching one of two targets for another five in Sunday's 16-10 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Neither Powell nor Ty Montgomery broke double-digit scrimmage yards while Le'Veon Bell touched the ball 29 times. The lifelong Jet will close out his ninth season with the team against the Bills in Week 17.

Powell (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Powell's reps were capped in practice throughout the week, but his availability for game day ultimately wasn't impacted. He'll be in line to fill his usual role as the primary backup to top back Le'Veon Bell.

Powell (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers after logging limited practices this week.

EDGE Analysis

Powell has a chance to return to the Jets' backfield mix following a one-game absence, but with starter Le'Veon Bell back in action, Powell's projected complementary role limits his fantasy utility.

Powell (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Powell was unable to practice in advance of Week 15 action, so his return to the field Wednesday is a positive sign with regard to his availability for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That said, after Le'Veon Bell rejoined the Jets lineup for last week's loss to the Ravens following a one-game absence, Powell once again profiles as a complementary option in the team's backfield.

Powell (ankle/illness) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Ravens, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Powell missed a trio of practices this week, so it doesn't come as a surprise that he won't be available. With Ty Montgomery (foot/hip) also listed as questionable, Josh Adams could step into the No. 2 role in New York's backfield behind Le'Veon Bell, who is slated to return to action after missing the Week 14 win over the Dolphins with an illness.

Powell's ankle injury, and not his current bout with the flu, is the greatest threat to his availability for Thursday's contest at Baltimore, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Powell will miss his second practice in as many days Tuesday, per Connor Hughes of The Athletic. With just one session remaining this week to prove his health, Powell is trending in the wrong direction for an appearance Thursday. Elsewhere in the Jets' backfield, Le'Veon Bell (illness) was listed as a full participant on Monday's injury report, so Powell was poised to take a step back before his health became compromised.

If the Jets had practiced Monday, Powell (ankle/illness) would not have participated, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, fellow running back Le'Veon Bell (illness) is said to be pretty close to 100 percent and has a solid chance to play Thursday night against the Ravens. In that scenario, Powell's projected Week 15 workload would take a hit, especially if he heads into Baltimore banged up and/or under the weather.

Powell rushed 19 times for 74 yards and caught two of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami. He also injured his ankle late in the game, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Powell worked in a workhorse role with Le'Veon Bell (illness) out, getting 19 carries to nine for Ty Montgomery. Per Hughes, coach Adam Gase didn't know if Powell would have been able to come back from his late ankle injury. While Bell likely will return by Thursday's Week 15 clash against the Ravens, Powell's status is worth monitoring in case Bell has to miss additional time.

Powell is in line to start at running back in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was the expected outcome after the Jets downgraded Le'Veon Bell (illness) from questionable to out for the Week 14 matchup, but it's at least reassuring for those deploying Powell in their lineups to know that the 31-year-old will be on the field for the Jets' first snap of the day. Though Powell will start and projects to lead the team's backfield Sunday, Ty Montgomery and Josh Adams should also have roles in the game plan and could earn increased snaps as the contest unfolds, depending on how they perform in their initial opportunities. Powell has seen the most consistent use of the reserve trio when Bell has exited the field this season, rushing 32 times for 125 yards (3.9 per carry) and catching four passes for 17 yards in 10 games.
