Heading into Week 4 action, the New York Jets welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars to MetLife Stadium. Here is the final injury report for both teams as well as today’s weather for the matchup.
Week 4 brings yet another team from Florida to MetLife Stadium. That’s right, the Jacksonville Jaguars are coming to town to face the New York Jets. On paper, the Jaguars have an all-around better team as the Jets are once again underdogs in this matchup.
Both teams are heading into this game with at least one major injury that undoubtedly impacts them. For the Jets, starting running back Matt Forte is out due to a knee and toe injury. Running back Bilal Powell will get the nod today when it comes to starting duties.
The Jaguars will, unfortunately, be without wide receiver Jaelen Strong who spent the first three years of his career with the Houston Texans. He came to the Jaguars hoping to make a name for himself again but has been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury.
