ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini reports ILB David Harris (shoulder, questionable) will play Week 3 against the Chiefs.

It is good news with Erin Henderson (foot, questionable) unlikely to play after sitting out all week. First-round ILB Darron Lee should get the start next to Harris.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) could be used situationally Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Adam Schefter reported earlier Sunday Marshall would be on a snap count, so it would make sense to use him primarily on third downs and in the red zone. Cimini also floats the idea Marshall could be a decoy to occupy Marcus Peters. Even with Marshall active, Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa should see a bump in targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall (knee/foot) is expected to play at Kansas City, but he will be on a snap count.

Schefter also tweeted something about the weather in Kansas City being "bad," although Weather.com has Arrowhead experiencing a 0-15 percent chance of rain with mild winds (8-10 MPH) and temperatures in the 70s during Sunday's game. We're not concerned about the weather at all. The snap-count concern should downgrade Marshall from a WR1 to a WR2/3, but snap counts do have a tendency to be thrown to the wind if a player starts hot. Schefter reported Marshall's knee "felt much better" on Saturday.

ESPN New York expects Brandon Marshall (questionable, knee/foot) to play Sunday.

Marshall only got in one limited practice, but the missed reps aren't a huge concern to his Week 3 status. Marshall clearly isn't fully healthy despite playing through his knee injury last week and remains a game-time decision. He's trending toward being active.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said he is not concerned about Matt Forte's early-season workload.

Forte is on pace for 472 touches, but neither OC Chan Gailey nor Bowles seems to care. "I like to see us successful," Bowles said. "If we can ride somebody, we’ll ride him, whether it be a receiver, quarterback or running back. It really doesn’t matter." Bilal Powell has been an afterthought this season, but he is a hold with the Jets seemingly intent on running the 30-year-old Forte into the ground.

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot, questionable) said he is "not where I want to be" in his recovery.

Marshall was able to get in a limited practice Friday, but he did not sound like a player confident about playing. "You want to be an asset to the team, not a liability. But I will do everything I can to be out there, and it will be coach’s decision," Marshall said. "The good thing is there’s still time." Marshall is shaping up as a true game-time decision in an afternoon kick. Owners need to have a backup plan in place.
Sep 24 - 9:34 AM

Eric Decker (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Friday.

He was held out on Wednesday, "limited" on Thursday, and "full" on Friday, which locks in Decker as a surefire bet to start against the Chiefs. Brandon Marshall (knee) is dinged, which could give Decker an uptick in Week 3 targets.
Sep 23 - 1:10 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) got in a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

After sitting Wednesday and Thursday, Friday's return bodes well for Marshall's chances of playing Sunday, though the Jets are still calling him a game-time decision. We'll have to keep an eye on him Sunday morning, but the Jets-Chiefs do have a late kickoff at 4:25 PM ET.
Sep 23 - 1:05 PM

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 3.

Enunwa has tweaked his ribs in both games this season, but played through the ailment before slightly aggravating it in Week 3. Enunwa could be in for a much bigger role if Brandon Marshall (knee) is forced to sit. Right now, he's still only a WR5.
Sep 22 - 6:03 PM

Eric Decker (shoulder) returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Decker is going to be fine for Sunday's trip to Kansas City. He's a mid-range WR2 who will tick higher if Brandon Marshall (knee) can't go.
Sep 22 - 1:38 PM

Jets OC Chan Gailey believes it's too early to start monitoring Matt Forte's workload.

Forte has gotten the ball 59 times through two games, but Gailey evidently hasn't seen any sign of early-season wear and tear. It's inevitable that Forte's workloads will be curtailed, especially with a competent backup in Bilal Powell, but Week 3 won't be it. Forte is playing on 10 days' rest after getting the ball 32 times against the Bills in Week 2. Forte is locked in as a high-end RB1 while he dominates touches.
Sep 22 - 1:13 PM

Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is not practicing Thursday.

He did not have a helmet at the start of practice, indicating he will sit out another session. Marshall has said he will "need all the way up until pregame warmup" to see if he is ready, but he is trending in the wrong direction. He needs to get in at least some practice Friday to have a reasonable shot to play against the Chiefs.
Sep 22 - 11:12 AM

In addition to his knee injury, Brandon Marshall (knee) is also dealing with a foot ailment.

At least that's what it says on the Jets' injury report. Marshall took a pretty hard spill against Buffalo last week but miraculously returned and finished with over 100 yards receiving. The hope is that Marshall can play Sunday in Kansas City, though that won't happen unless he returns to practice by the end of the week.
Sep 21 - 6:00 PM

Matt Forte (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Forte balled out last Thursday night with 109 total yards and three touchdowns on a whopping 32 touches, so he's likely just getting some veteran rest during practice. He's a locked-in RB1 this week against the Chiefs.
Sep 21 - 3:29 PM

Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

Decker expressed zero concern about his Week 3 availability earlier this week, so we're still expecting him to go Sunday against the Chiefs.
