Coach Rex Ryan said the "ideal scenario" is for the Jets to use a committee approach in the backfield.
The Jets put the plan into place during last week's win in St. Louis. Starter Shonn Greene saw 18 touches on 26 snaps and "backup" Bilal Powell got 13 touches during his 28 snaps. "You see the Patriots do it with their different backs. Miami does it. Buffalo's doing it," Ryan said. "If you have the talent, when the guys are healthy and all that, fresh, I think that's the best way." Expect a similar timeshare against the Patriots Thursday, with Powell handling more of the third-down and red-zone chances.
