New York Jets running back Bilal Powell went down with an injury in the first half of today's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Powell will not be returning to the field today. He's been declared out with a neck injury.

Additionally, safety Doug Middleton has been declared out with a shoulder issue. It has been a rough day for the Jets from an injury perspective.

Powell carried five times for 20 yards and caught one pass for five yards before getting hurt. With him out, Isaiah Crowell will receive even more work.

The first half of Jets-Vikings has not been an offensive clinic by any means. Minnesota scored on its first possession but has not been able to do much since then. The Jets, meanwhile, have sustained only one drive, capping it off with a touchdown pass from Sam Darnold to Christopher Herndon.

After Minnesota's Dan Bailey missed a field goal late with less than a minute to play in the second quarter, the score remained 10-7. That's what it is at halftime.

You can catch the second half shortly on FOX.
