Jets’ Powell returns to practice, expected to play at Miami
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets running back Bilal Powell is expected to play at Miami on Sunday after practicing fully for the first time since straining a calf muscle nearly two weeks ago.
Powell is the Jets’ leading rusher with 240 yards and two touchdowns. He also has 13 catches for 72 yards out of the backfield.
He was hurt early in the Jets’ win at Cleveland on Oct. 8 and hadn’t fully participated in practice since. Powell was inactive for New York’s loss to New England last Sunday.
Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson remained sidelined for practice Thursday, dealing with a sprained shoulder and a foot ailment.
Wide receiver Robby Anderson (ankle) fully practiced after sitting out Wednesday. Defensive end Kony Ealy (shoulder) and running back Matt Forte (knee, turf toe) were also full after being limited.
