Williams’ big game helps Packers finally get road win
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Whether it was running through safety Darryl Roberts to start the game or breaking Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams' tackle attempt to score a touchdown, Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams had the best game of his career in Sunday's victory at the Jets.
Jets without WR Quincy Enunwa for second straight week
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will miss his second straight game because of an ankle injury.
Enunwa is tied with Robby Anderson for the team lead with 38 catches, but has just nine receptions in the Jets' last four games. He sat out against Houston last Saturday after hurting his ankle at Buffalo.
Jets place S Marcus Maye on season-ending injured reserve

Jets’ secondary will be down a few key players vs. Vikings
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets' secondary will be short-handed against Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings.
Cornerback Buster Skrine and safety Marcus Maye are out for the game Sunday, and cornerback Trumaine Johnson is doubtful to play.
Skrine has a concussion that has caused him to miss most of the last two games. Maye is dealing with a broken right thumb. Meanwhile, Johnson — the Jets' top free-agent signing — will likely miss his third straight game with a quadriceps injury.
Jets’ Buster Skrine out, Trumaine Johnson doubtful vs. Colts
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets' secondary will be without a few key members against the Indianapolis Colts.
Cornerback Buster Skrine has been ruled out for Sunday with a concussion. Fellow cornerback Trumaine Johnson is listed Friday as doubtful with a quadriceps injury that sidelined him last Sunday against Denver.
Rookie Parry Nickerson could fill Skrine's nickel spot, while Darryl Roberts and Rashard Robinson could see time in the base defense in Johnson's place.
Jets CB Burris out for game vs. Chiefs with concussion
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets backup cornerback Juston Burris has been ruled out against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday because of a concussion.
Burris was injured last Sunday against Carolina and did not practice all week while in the league's concussion protocol. Coach Todd Bowles says Rashard Robinson, Robert Nelson and rookie Derrick Jones could fill in at Burris' spot as New York's No. 4 cornerback behind Morris Claiborne, Buster Skrine and Darryl Roberts.
Jets starters Skrine, Shell out vs. Falcons with injuries
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets starting cornerback Buster Skrine and right tackle Brandon Shell won't play against the Atlanta Falcons because of injuries.
Skrine suffered a concussion last week at Miami and has been in the league's protocol for head injuries. He sat out practice all week, and coach Todd Bowles ruled him out Friday.
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.
Injured Jets Matt Forte, Kony Ealy to miss Browns game
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets running back Matt Forte and defensive lineman Kony Ealy will miss Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns because of injuries.
Forte will be sidelined for the second straight game while recovering from turf toe. Bilal Powell is expected to get the start a week after he rushed for a career-high 163 yards against Jacksonville.
Jets’ Forte remains sidelined, appears unlikely to play
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets running back Matt Forte remains sidelined with turf toe and a knee ailment, and could miss his second straight game.
Coach Todd Bowles says Thursday that it would be unlikely Forte will play at Cleveland on Sunday if he doesn't participate in practice on Friday. Bilal Powell started in Forte's place last weekend and ran for a career-high 163 yards in the Jets' 23-20 win over Jacksonville.
Jets rookie Jordan Jenkins doubtful for game vs. Bills
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets rookie linebacker Jordan Jenkins is doubtful to play Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills with a calf injury that also sidelined him for the season opener.
Jenkins, a projected starter at outside linebacker, was hurt during practice on Aug. 22 and hasn't participated since. Coach Todd Bowles said Tuesday that it appeared unlikely that the third-round draft pick out of Georgia would play against the Bills.
