Jets add Briusing Back to Active Roster With Powell, Forte Dinged up

Last week, running back Elijah McGuire was taken out of the Jets 23-0 loss against the Broncos when he injured his ankle on the first play of the game.  It appears McGuire is fine as he doesn’t appear on the team’s injury report, but Matt Forte and Bilal Powell do with knee and hamstring issues respectively.

With that being the case, the Jets have added rookie running back Akeem Judd to their active roster.

A physical down hill runner at 5′ 10” 225, Judd is a power back out of Mississippi played two seasons for the Running Rebels, carrying the ball 242 times for 1,251 yards (5.2 YPC) and 9 touchdowns.
