Jets running back Bilal Powell did not sustain a career-threatening neck injury.
Powell was placed on injured reserved Wednesday, and New York head coach Todd Bowles told reporters it was because he suffered a neck injury that required surgery.
Bowles said the injury may be career-threatening, but corrected himself Thursday saying he misunderstood the diagnosis.
“It was just a misunderstanding of things,” Bowles said, via the New York Post. “He’s expected to recover fully.”
