by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (8/9/14) With Chris Johnson getting rest and Chris Ivory out with a rib injury, Jets reserve running back Alex Green got a lot of reps with the first-team offense at practice Saturday, ESPN.com reports.
Green led the team with 29 yards on seven carries in the preseason opener against the Colts Thursday as he battles for a backup job.
Alex Green leaves with chest injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (7/29/14) Jets running back Alex Green left Tuesday's practice with a chest injury, reports the New York Post.
The report says two of them likely won't make the team, but figuring out the carries could be tough. Johnson averaged 18 rushes per game in his six seasons with the Titans. Ivory averaged 12 per game last season as the Jets' leading rusher. Powell averaged 11 last season. That's a total of 41 rushes for their top three backs.
"Everybody’s goal is to put wins on the board," said Johnson. "We’re not really worried about the carries, who's going to play this down and that down. We’ve all just got one focus and that’s winning."
Alex Green is hoping to make the final roster for the Jets as a reserve running back. Even if he makes the team he would have minimal Fantasy value. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
