Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - Sports -

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — New York Jets run­ning back Matt Forte won’t play against the Jack­sonville Jaguars on Sun­day be­cause of turf toe.

Coach Todd Bowles an­nounced Fri­day that Bi­lal Pow­ell will start in place of Forte, who sat out prac­tice all week. He was in­jured the big toe on his left foot last Sun­day on a 12-yard run early in the third quar­ter against Mi­ami.

Forte leads the Jets with 94 yards rush­ing on 23 car­ries this sea­son. Pow­ell has 72 yards and will likely share the work­load with rookie Eli­jah McGuire, who has 63 yards rush­ing. New York also signed Travaris Cadet ear­lier this week.
