The New York Jets (4-9) will be heading into the final three weeks of the season without starting RB Isaiah Crowell.
On Friday the team announced that they had placed Crowell on injured reserve due to a toe injury. The team also promoted RB De’Angelo Henderson from the practice squad.
Crowell finishes the season with 685 rushing yards and six TDs on a career-low 143 carries.
The Jets signed Crowell as a free agent this offseason after he spent the previous four years with the Cleveland Browns.
We've activated RB De'Angelo Henderson and placed RB Isaiah Crowell on IR.

Crowell’s 2018 campaign included a 219-yard rushing performance against the Denver Broncos in Week 5. The mark broke the team’s previous franchise record and set a new NFL record for yards per carry with 14.60 on a minimum of 15 carries.
It would be the final game of the season where Crowell passed the 100-yard rushing plateau. He was held to less than 3.0 yards per carry in half of his remaining games.
Earlier this season, the Jets placed No. 2 RB Bilal Powell on injured reserve. Rookie Trenton Cannon and 2nd-year RB Elijah McGuire are the remaining RBs on the roster with in-game experience.
