Powell, Wilkerson questionable for Jets vs. Patriots
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets running back Bilal Powell and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson are questionable to play against the New England Patriots on Sunday because of injuries.
Neither Powell nor Wilkerson practiced this week. Powell, the Jets’ leading rusher, has a strained calf, while Wilkerson is dealing with a sprained shoulder and a toe injury.
Coach Todd Bowles says Friday that both players will likely be game-time decisions.
Running back Matt Forte practiced fully for the first time since getting turf toe against Miami three weeks ago. He is expected to play, as is defensive end Kony Ealy, who was also a full participant after missing last Sunday’s game at Cleveland with a shoulder injury.
Linebacker Josh Martin (ankle) and cornerbacks Juston Burris (foot) and Darryl Roberts (hamstring) are probable.
