New York Jets running back Bilal Powell has been preliminarily diagnosed with a dislocated right shoulder, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported on Twitter Sunday. Powell is expected to undergo an MRI on the shoulder Monday morning, Mehta reported.
Powell, the Jets' backup running back to starter Shonn Greene, was injured in the third quarter of the Jets' 35-9 romp over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, and he did not return. The second-year running back out of Louisville had been pushing Greene for more playing time, as Greene struggled mightily before breaking out Sunday.
Powell had carried the ball 30 times this season for 117 yards, a 3.9-yard average. He also caught three passes for 40 yards.
