Sooner than a crosstown conflict with fellow star working abet Saquon Barkley, Le’Veon Bell is on the mend.
The Fresh York Jets working abet is now not going to prepare Wednesday, coach Adam Gase told The Michael Kay Present on Tuesday.
Bell underwent an MRI on his knee Monday after the working abet it appears to be like got banged up in Fresh York’s loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Gase did now not elaborate on Bell’s situation Tuesday.
The abet has struggled to this point in his first season with the Jets, dashing for 415 yards on 125 carries (a profession-low 3.3 YPC) and compiling 242 yards on 40 receptions.
If Bell is simply too gimpy to head against the Giants subsequent Sunday, Bilal Powell might be the dawdle-to abet. Josh Adams and Ty Bernard Law 1st viscount montgomery of alamein might well presumably moreover ingredient in, though Bernard Law 1st viscount montgomery of alamein’s availability is unclear.
Someplace else on the Jets roster, Fresh York placed excessive-priced cornerback Trumaine Johnson on injured reserve. He missed excellent week’s sport with accidents to both ankles, per the league ruin document.
This circulation might well presumably signal the end of the Johnson technology in East Rutherford. Signed in 2018 to a five-year, $72.5 million extension, Johnson has been hugely underwhelming in a single-and-a-half seasons in Fresh York. A commerce at defensive coordinator this season did now not relieve issues, as Johnson was benched early in the year in an already-shallow cornerback corps.
Releasing Johnson would count $12 million in dead money in 2020, a sum the Jets might well presumably appropriate eat to alleviate the toxic situation.
Becoming a member of Johnson on injured reserve is receiver Josh Bellamy (foot, shoulder).
