Jets running back Bilal Powell and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson both missed practice from Wednesday through Friday. The Jets listed them both as questionable for the Sunday game against New England on the final injury report of the week.
This is somewhat notable. In the Todd Bowles Era, players who do not practice typically do not suit up for the game. They usually are not left as questionable. One wonders whether the Jets might try to get these guys on the field. The team likely needs a big game from both to have the opportunity to pull off an upset. Back in 2015, the Jets listed Powell as questionable for a Week 17 game against the Bills with the Playoffs on the line despite Powell not practicing all week. Powell ultimately didn’t dress for the game, however.
We will have to see what happens on Sunday.
The full injury report is below.
