Forte (knee) was not present for practice Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With no reported setbacks in Week 14's shutout loss to Broncos, Forte -- who logged 26 snaps in the contest -- figures to return to practice Thursday, as he did the last two weeks after sitting out Wednesday's session. The larger issue for those considering Forte in Week 15 lineups is that he's in a time-share with Bilal Powell, that saw Forte log six carries for 13 yards and two catches for 21 yards this past Sunday. For his part, Powell ran the ball 13 times for 35 yards against a rugged Denver run D. Looking ahead to this weekend's tilt at New Orleans, both backs could find a little more running room, with the Saints allowing an average of 114.3 rushing yards to date.

Forte rushed eight times for 13 yards and caught two of three pass attempts for 21 yards in Sunday's 23-0 defeat in Denver.

EDGE Analysis

The eight touches were his fewest since Week 3, and he didn't do much with them thanks to a stifling Denver defense. Even so, it continued an up-and-down pattern of between eight and 15 touches in alternating games over the last four weeks, making it very hard to trust the 32-year-old in the middle of the fantasy playoffs. The schedule doesn't help his case either, as the Jets travel to New Orleans in Week 15.

Forte (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Forte, who was held out of Friday's practice, is out there if you need him Sunday, but given that he's in line to share work in the Jets' Week 14 backfield with Bilal Powell, as well as Elijah McGuire to a lesser degree, Forte is a speculative play, when also considering that he's been managing a knee issue.

Forte (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, is considered likely to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forte's knee issue has resulted in the Jets limiting his workload in practices for much of the season, but it doesn't look as though he's dealing with any sort of significant setback that will keep him sidelined in Week 14. Even so, with the Jets having gravitated to a three-headed backfield of Forte, Bilal Powell and Eljiah McGuire, the fantasy ceilings for all players are capped when the trio is healthy and available.

Forte (knee) was held out of Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Forte also missed practice Wednesday but managed a limited session Thursday. While he managed to play through the same injury the past two weeks, it seems to be the kind of lingering issue that could flare up and cause an unexpected absence. His status probably won't be entirely clear until the Jets release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire would take on expanded workloads if Forte isn't able to hold up his share of the three-headed backfield.

Forte (knee) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Forte is thus trending toward being available for Sundays game against the Broncos, though the Jets may well end up listing the running back as questionable for the contest. If Forte does play this weekend, he'd be in line to share work in the Jets' Week 14 backfield with Bilal Powell, along with Elijah McGuire to a lesser degree.

Forte (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forte didn't practice last Wednesday either, before returning to a limited session Thursday and eventually playing in this past Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs, logging 15 carries for 58 yards and three catches for 33 yards and a TD. We'd expect a similar progression this week and in such a scenario, he'll continue to share work in the team's Week 14 backfield against the Broncos with Bilal Powell (18 carries in Week 13) and Elijah McGuire (five carries), to a lesser degree.

Forte (knee) rushed 15 times for 58 yards and brought in all three targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Forte was solid through both the ground and air, averaging just under 4.0 yards per carry while also logging his first receiving touchdown of the season. It was only the third game with double-digit carries for Forte, with all of those instances having notably come over the last trio of contests. The usual concern that would be expressed over a 31-year-old tailback's workload at this stage of the season thus doesn't really apply in this case, which could bode well for Forte's workload and production over the balance of the campaign. He'll look to continue producing against the Broncos in Week 14.

Forte (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

On the plus side, Forte is available to those who need him to fill an RB slot in Week 13 lineups, but he figures to yield some work to Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire on Sunday, which limits his ceiling. Neither of the aforementioned trio logged more than 10 touches in the Jets' Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Forte (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Todd Bowles relayed Friday that Forte will be worked out in warmups Sunday before a call on the running back's Week 13 status is made. If Forte ends up out, or limited at all Sunday, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire would be in line for added work in the Jets' backfield.
