This just in directly from the Jets, some good news and some bad news.
The bad news first, Marcus Dowtin will not travel with the team to St. Louis and is out on Sunday. This was a coaches decision as Marcus is not injured. The emgerence of Ricky Sapp likely played a part of this move.
But, the good news is, Dowtin is the only player not travelling with the team to St. Louis. That means both Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight are both going with the team for tomorrow’s game. We obviously don’t have either of their official statuses yet, but heading to the game with the team is clearly a good sign. With a lack of real depth at the position, and struggling for production, the Jets could use all of the healthy bodies they can get at running back.
McKnight has a huge role in the kick return game as we all know, so his return, should it be tomorrow, will help a great deal on special teams.
