New York Jets working again Isaiah Crowell, who aggravated a toe harm final Sunday that left him in “excruciating” ache, was placed on injured reserve Friday the staff introduced. His season is over.
Crowell, who has rushed for a team-high 686 yards and 6 touchdowns, battled the harm for a number of weeks. On Thursday, coach Todd Bowles introduced Crowell was dominated out for Saturday’s sport towards the Houston Texans – the primary missed sport in his profession. He had performed in 77 straight.
Within the wage cap period, lacking the playoffs yr after yr requires a particular degree of ineptitude and a relentless state of rebuilding.
If the common season ended proper now, this is how the highest six would look in every convention, plus clinching eventualities.
Crowell’s first, and maybe final season with the Jets can be remembered for 2 video games. On Oct. 7, he rushed for a franchise document 219 yards towards the Denver Broncos. He wanted solely 15 carries, as he averaged 14.6 yards per rush.
Two weeks earlier, Crowell drew criticism and a stern rebuke from Bowles after celebrating a landing by pretending to wipe his rear finish with the ball. He was fined by the NFL, however he parlayed the second into an endorsement for an organization that sells a bathroom paper substitute for males.
Crowell is not any lock to return in 2019. He signed a three-year, $12 million contract in free company, however he might be launched with minimal salary-cap implications. The Jets can save $three million by chopping him, taking a $2 million cap hit for 2019.
