Heading into Week 16 action, the New York Jets welcome the Los Angeles Chargers to MetLife Stadium for their season finale at home. Here is the final injury report for both teams as well as today’s weather for the game.

The New York Jets are set for their final home game of the season against the Los Angeles Chargers. Once again this week, running back Matt Forte is dealing with a lingering knee issue and might be limited in action today.

Besides Forte, rookie running back Elijah McGuire has been dealing with an illness all week long and should still suit up for today’s game but could also see limited action. It looks like running back Bilal Powell will receive the majority of reps at the position.

The Chargers, on the other hand, have two players that have officially been ruled out, one from their defensive line and one of their backup linebackers. Besides that, the Charges are relatively healthy for the most part.

Below you will find the latest injury report for both teams, courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets.
