Neither Chris Ivory nor Joe McKnight dressed for tonight’s Green and White scrimmage meaning Bilal Powell played every down with the first-team offense at running back.

Rex Ryan the Jets coach indicated Powell was perhaps the most impressive player on the field.

“He did run the ball hard” Ryan said. “Now obviously with the opportunity he’s been given he’s really taken the reigns.”

Powell rushed for 41 on six carries including a slicing 24-yard gain on his first attempt. A touchdown run of three yards was called back due to a penalty though Powell later broke three tackles after catching a screen pass to gain eight yards.
