Matt Forte announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.
Forte turned 32 in December. He battled chronic knee problems the past two seasons with the Jets, missing six games while playing at less than 100 percent in several others. Forte exploded onto the scene in 2008 as a second-round rookie with the Bears, rushing for 1,238 yards and eight scores and adding a 63-477-4 receiving line. His best seasons as a pro came in 2013-14 with 2,377 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns along with a combined 176-1,197-7 as a pass-catcher. Forte was a true three-down back in his heyday and finished as a fantasy RB1 six times. Forte is a lock for the Bears' Ring of Honor. Feb 28 - 12:05 PM

Bilal Powell (neck) will be held out of the Jets' preseason opener on Saturday.

Powell has been sidelined or limited in practice this week. The team is undecided about Matt Forte's (hamstring) status for Saturday. It's hard to envision him suiting up. Neither injury is serious, but camp has gotten off to about as poor a start as possible -- or perhaps as good -- for the tanking Jets.

Jets RBs coach Stump Mitchell said at minicamp the team's plan is to use "both" Bilal Powell and Matt Forte.

Mitchell added Powell would be a "Pro Bowler" if he ever got a chance at feature back work. Matt Forte's presence on the Jets' roster is nonsensical as they embrace full-on tank mode. We wouldn't be entirely surprised if Forte were released later in the offseason, especially if Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire show well. Either way, Powell is the favorite for touches.
