Jets head coach Todd Bowles addressed Bilal Powell’s injury to the media yesterday.

On Bilal Powell’s injury status…

He has a calf strain.

On if Powell’s calf strain is a day-to-day or week-to-week injury…


On how concerned he is regarding the health of the running backs considering both Powell and Matt Forté are currently banged up…

I’ll be concerned at the end of the week. Right now, I’ll see how the week goes and hopefully we can see some progress.

On if the Jets have considered adding another running back…

Not at this time.

Things I learned: Bilal Powell has a calf strain. That is all.

Bowles seldom provides useful information along these lines, and there is little incentive for him to do so. As he indicated, he probably isn’t certain about Powell’s status for Sunday himself. We will all just have to watch how he progresses through the week.

The Jets don’t put out their first official injury report of the week until Wednesday.
