Forte had already been ruled out for a second consecutive week and as the Jets approach their season finale, the move enabled the team to promote DB Bryson Keeton to the active roster.
Forte thus finishes the 2016 campaign with 218 carries for 813 yards and 30 catches for 263 yards along with eight total TDs over 14 games. The same applies to Bilal Powell and with both backs dealing with ailments at this stage, the stage could be set for Brandon Wilds and Brandon Burks to see added opportunities in the Jets' offense Sunday against the Bills. Forte, who was inactive in Week 16, remains iffy for Sunday's game against the Bills.
The 31-year-old rushed for a career-low 813 yards this season.It was his second straight season below 1,000 yards after he reached the milestone in five of his first seven NFL seasons as a member of the Chicago Bears."I kind of get it out of my system before that," he said of his brief indulgences. At home, Forte and his wife, Danielle, have their own special recipes.Forte now loves bison -- lean, but loaded with protein.In bottled, natural supplement form, it can be an anti-inflammatory.
And it is a regular part of Forte's clean-eating routine, during and after the season."A lot of people had written him off, said he was done, he's over the hill, is going to drop off," Marshall said. He's one of the hardest working men I've ever been around.I don't know if he's a little obsessed with his body or not.So when his wife makes tacos, she uses that instead of ground beef.On date nights with Danielle, Forte will opt for lamb chops at a steak house, while avoiding the pre-meal bread.FLORHAM PARK -- After Jets running back Matt Forte wakes up in the morning, he unscrews the top to a small container, and pulls an eyedropper from it.
