Jets head coach Rex Ryan spoke highly of Powell and his worth ethic throughout the team’s training camp. On Saturday afternoon, the Jets named Powell their starting running back.

The Jets have been using Powell in the Wildcat formation throughout the season, which is something he is familiar with. During his season at Louisville, Powell was used in what we liked to call the Wildcard formation.
Just two days after naming Powell as their starter, the Jets have released running back Joe McKnight. Former fourth round draft pick Ch...
BEST OF MAXIM
DO IT LIKE ORLOVSKY
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has had an absolutely terrible night in his first NFL start. He currently has three interceptions and just did his best Dan Orlovsky impression, running out of the back of the end zone while trying to avoid a sack. The only person happy to see all of this transpire has to be Mark Sanchez.

New York is the best place in North America to be great at sports. When quarterback Mark Sanchez was leading the New York Jets to back to back AFC Championship games he was the toast of the town yielding all kinds of perks, like dating supermodel Kate Upton. But with that success came even higher expectations and as Sanchez, and the team, failed to...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, dealing with a shoulder injury, is at practice riding a stationary bike but unlikely to participate in any throwing drills.
During the 30-minute window that reporters are allowed to watch, Sanchez was among a group off to the side of the practice field and had his right arm at his side as he pedaled.
The Jets announced Sunday that Sanchez...
New York Jets running back Mike Goodson says his arrest in May was ''embarrassing,'' and he was ''disappointed'' in himself.

New York Jets running back Mike Goodson has returned to the team, and he also found a four game suspension sitting in his locker when he arrived.
Goodson was hammered by the NFL for violating the leagues substance abuse policy according to Pro Football Talk.

Rex Ryan has taken heat following Saturday night, for sending Mark Sanchez in the game during the fourth quarter of the 'MetLife Bowl', to play with backups. Sanchez injured his right shoulder joint, as a result of a blow.
In the press conference, following the game, Ryan got slightly aggravated (somewhat reasonably so) due to repeated questions from NYDN's Manish...
We sent Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio to last night’s game thanks to the MetLife Foundation and their Road To MetLife Stadium experience. Here are five things he thinks after attending…
1. I think that Giants fans were generally very respectful. I wore a Jets hat and had a Giants fan tell me that i’m too good for the Jets, which was pretty hilarious. I cheered loudly for Geno...
The NFL has slapped Jets halfback Mike Goodson with a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.Fantasy Spin:He's been absent for all of training camp though ESPN's Adam Schefter is hearing that Goodson will arrive at Jets camp sometime within the next 24 hours. Goodson racked up 221 yards on just 35 carries last year with Oakland. He'...
Wide receiver Braylon Edwards has been released by the Jets.Fantasy Spin:Edwards hasn't held much fantasy value since his first stint with the Jets back in 2010. Santonio Holmes (if healthy) and Stephen Hill figure get most of the targets, but Edwards could have been a nice option near the goal line.
The Jets' quarterback picture got even murkier despite winning the annual bragging rights game with the Giants.
Billy Cundiff kicked a 32-yard field goal with 8:04 left in overtime and the Jets defeated the Giants 24-21 Saturday night. It's the only time the rivals will play this year unless they qualify for the cold-weather Super Bowl here in February. The way the Jets...
Talk about “Rome is Burning”.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s white-hot coaching seat just reached ‘scorcher’ level after his bonehead decision to play quarterback Mark Sanchez against rival NY Giants Saturday night.
The only amiable way both the Jets and its fan base can come to a mendable conclusion is for the team to fire Ryan.
Rex’s choice to insert the all-but...
The New York Jets and David Harris were able to escape with a victory against the New York Giants but more important positives could be taken from the game. A long touchdown run only inspired greater play from a potentially powerful defense.
