Jets RB Bilal Powell moved to injured reserve

The Jets announced today via Twitter that Bilal Powell (neck) was put on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact: 

As you would expect, Isaiah Crowell will be the biggest beneficiary of Powell's neck injury. He is a borderline RB1 this week against the Bears and a volume-based RB2 for the rest of the season. Rookie Trenton Cannon will also pick up some work, especially in the passing game. For the uninitiated, he is a thin (185 pounds) speedster with explosive athleticism (91st percentile 40-yard dash, 91st percentile burst score, 84% percentile agility score and a 78th percentile SPARQ score). In 29 snaps last Sunday, he reeled in four receptions for 69 yards, showing breakaway speed at multiple points. He's a sleeper RB4 who is dripping with upside, but seems unlikely to see more than 8-10 touches in any single game.
