Carter Out; Corey Davis Missed Practice Thursday

As the Jets prepare to take on the Houston Texans this Sunday, they know they will be without starting running back Michael Carter.   He has rushed for 430 yards on 111 carries (3.9 yard average) with 4 TDs. Even more impressive is Carter’s role in the passing game, with 32 receptions for 308 yards (9.6 yard average).

With Carter sidelined for the next few weeks, this is a chance for Tevin Coleman, La’Mical Perine and Ty Johnson to stand out.  The most likely scenario is the Jets go with a running back by committee approach, which is what was expected of them this season. That is until the 4th round draft pick Carter showed early promise.

The Thanksgiving day injury report for the Jets also showed that wide receiver Corey Davis and defensive lineman Foley Fatukasi did not practice. Shaq Lawson, CJ Mosley and Nathan Shepherd were all limited.

When the team releases the final injury report on Friday we will have a better idea of who may miss the game on Sunday.
