Michael Carter (ankle) missing again from Jets practice

New York Jets running back Michael Carter (ankle) did not practice on Thursday.

What It Means:

Carter injured his ankle on Sunday and he's trending toward missing Week 13 versus the Minnesota Vikings. James Robinson was a healthy scratch last week with Carter active, so Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson will presumably handle most of the backfield work if Carter is sidelined. Knight gained 103 yards on 17 touches in his Week 12 debut.

numberFire's models currently project Carter for 6.2 carries and 1.2 catches in Week 13 while Knight is projected for 12.2 carries and 2.5 receptions. The Vikings are a pass-funnel, per our adjusted team metrics, as they have the No. 3 run defense and No. 24 pass defense in the league.
