Over the Cap Projection: Jets to Add Fourth Round Compensatory Draft Pick

Over the Cap Projection: Jets to Add Fourth Round Compensatory Draft Pick

Over the Cap is out with projections for compensatory picks. Compensatory picks are bonus Draft picks awarded to teams who lost more than they gained in free agency the year before. The projection has the Jets gaining an extra fourth round pick for losing Damon Harrison to the Giants. The Jets also lost Chris Ivory and Demario Davis in free agency, but picks the team could have gained were cancelled out by the signings of Matt Forte and Steve McLendon. There is a bit of ambiguity as to whether the Jets will qualify for a pick because of the possibility the signing of Jarvis Jenkins would...

Matt Forte Had Knee Scoped; Breno Giacomini to Have Back Surgery

There is surgery news on a couple of Jets starters. Todd Bowles revealed at his end of season press conference yesterday that Matt Forte has his knee scoped. On if Matt Forté will undergo surgery for his torn meniscus… Matt got scoped on Friday, so, he should be fine going forward from there. On the length of Forté’s recovery… I do not know yet. On if Forté will be ready by spring… I should hope so, yes. On if Forté’s injury should have been addressed earlier… It wasn’t bothering him early. He had it when he was in Chicago. It was something that he had. It started...

Jets' Matt Forte underwent knee surgery Friday

New York Jets running back Matt Forte underwent arthroscopic knee surgery for his torn meniscus last Friday. What It Means: It's a minor operation. It's unclear if Forte will also require shoulder surgery. Now 31, Forte averaged 3.72 yards per carry in his first season as a Jet, his lowest mark since 2009. He's signed for $4 million in 2017. The Jets could seek an adjustment, but Forte will likely remain in New York. Among the 42 running backs to attempt at least 100 rushes, Forte's Rushing Net Expected Points per attempt came in 15th-lowest this year. Teammate Bilal Powell was...

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The Jets placed running back Matt Forte on injured reserve Friday afternoon, just two days before their Week 17 matchup with the Buffalo Bills.
Forte out for Jets, Powell questionable

Forte out for Jets, Powell questionable

The running back situation for the Jets entering the season finale may require all hands on deck. Matt Forte is out with knee and shoulder injuries and backups Bilal Powell (knee/illness) and Brandon Wilds (hamstring) are questionable. The only fully healthy back is Brandon Burks. Powell was limited Friday and reports indicate he will try […]

Already down their top two running backs in Matt Forte and Bilal Powell who are dealing with knee injuries, the Jets didn’t have their primary backups for Thursday’s practice either. Khiry Robinson is already out for the year and Brandon Wilds couldn’t practice Thursday with a hamstring injury. It left them with just Brandon Burks […]

Jets without both Bilal Powell and Matt Forte for Thursday's practice

New York Jets running backs Bilal Powell (knee) and Matt Forte (knee, shoulder) did not participate in Thursday's practice. What It Means: Forte has only managed to record 7 carries since Week 13 and missed the Jets' Week 16 games, and it's looking like his season is likely over. If Powell doesn't suit up this week, in what is ultimately a meaningless game for the Jets, look for rookie Brandon Wilds to be the team's lead back on Sunday. Wilds is available for minimum-salary on FanDuel and will be taking on a Bills defense that ranks only 27th in Adjusted Defensive Rushing Net...
