New York Jets RB Bilal Powell (shoulder) will definitely miss at least one game, and possibly more than that. According to a source from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Powell will be out for Week 7 against the New England Patriots, and has a chance of coming back against the Dolphins in Week 8.
However, the Jets have their bye in Week 9, so there's a possibility that they'll sit Powell until then and give him three full weeks to heal up. Powell left Sunday's game against the Colts with a dislocated shoulder.
Fantasy Impact: Joe McKnight is also expected to be out with a high ankle sprain, so the Jets' RB depth is paper-thin behind Shonn Greene. They may be forced to sign a free agent this week.
Powell hasn't done much to dislodge Greene as the starter, and this shoulder injury will only make things more difficult for him to produce. He can be safely dropped in most fantasy leagues.
