Matt Forte, Jets RBs still banged up

ESPN - [Full Article]

Injured running back Matt Forte (hamstring), yet to practice, will be under the spotlight.

The Jets are beat up at running back. The latest injury: Dominique Williams, who has a concussion. That leaves only three healthy backs -- Bilal Powell, Romar Morris and Matthew Tucker. Khiry Robinson, recovered from a broken leg. Veteran Bernard Pierce, who pulled a hamstring soon after signing at the start of camp, could be on shaky ground

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said it's too soon to panic, but Forte probably won't play next week if he misses a few more practices and then it's time to worry, the story went on to say. The article also added Robinson could get his first full-time work after limited work last week. Robinson could end up being a guy to get carries if Forte remains out. Powell's strength is more of a third-down back and he likely wouldn't see a large amount of rushes.
