FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets running back Matt Forte practiced on a limited basis and will likely be a game-time decision against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night.
Forte sat out practice Wednesday with an injured right knee, but was able to participate in some of Thursday's session. That's an encouraging sign for the 31-year-old running back who leads the Jets with 792 yards rushing and seven touchdowns.
Defensive tackle Steve McLendon (hamstring) was ruled out for the third straight game by coach Todd Bowles, who's hopeful the veteran will play again this season.
Linebackers Lorenzo Mauldin (ankle) and Mike Catapano (knee), offensive tackle Brent Qvale (hamstring), running back Khiry Robinson (lower leg) and cornerback Buster Skrine (concussion) all didn't practice. Bowles has not ruled out any of them for the game.
Wide receivers Brandon Marshall (knee, foot, back), Quincy Enunwa (ribs) and Jalin Marshall (concussion), tight end Brandon Bostick (ankle) and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) were limited.
