Forte sat out the Jets' first two preseason games. Will he play Saturday against the Giants? If he doesn't, he'd go into Week 1 with zero preseason game snaps. The Jets have three more practices before they face the Giants.
The story said HC Todd Bowles said Forte will play in that game "if he gets better during the week. We'll try to anticipate it in warm-ups. I'd like to get him a few snaps, if I could." If Forte doesn't play in the preseason it may be a stretch for him to see a bulk of the workload in Week 1, esp. with Bilal Powell in the picture who also excels in the passing game. It's a situation to monitor over the next few days.
