New York Jets: Jets place RB Isaiah Crowell on injured reserve, ending his season – Ian Rapoport of NFL Network
Dealing with a foot injury for some time, the New York Jets have decided to pull the plug and put Isaiah Crowell on injured reserve. This season, Crowell has shown small spurts of success mainly in the game vs. Indianapolis where he rushed for 219 yards. Since the return of Elijah McGuire from I.R., he has shown to be more of a reliable option going forward for the Jets. The Jets will continue to function with Elijah McGuire, Trenton Cannon and D’Angelo Henderson in their backfield. The Jets could very likely move on from Crowell as he is due an outrageous $12 million dollar salary in 2019.
