After the Jets lost to the Seahawks last Sunday, reports from the team’s locker room had running back Matt Forte heading for x-rays for an undisclosed injury.
Jets coach Todd Bowles said Monday that he wasn’t aware Forte getting any x-rays after the game, but the practice week started with Forte on the injury report. The Jets listed Forte as limited in practice due to knee and rib injuries. Forte was limited last Wednesday as well, although only the knee was listed that time.
The fact that he’s practicing in any fashion suggests that neither of the issues is causing great concern for him or the team. After 29 carries for 82 yards the last two weeks, however, any limitations for Forte would be a bad thing for the Jets offense.
The same is true for a shaky Jets secondary should they have to play without cornerback Darrelle Revis. Revis hurt his hamstring against the Seahawks and didn’t practice on Wednesday. Wide receiver Eric Decker remains out of practice with a partially torn rotator cuff.
