FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have placed running back Bilal Powell on injured reserve with a neck injury, likely ending the season for the franchise’s 10th-leading rusher.

The team also announced Wednesday it signed safety Ibraheim Campbell, filling a need at another of the Jets’ injury-plagued positions.

Powell was hurt during a 2-yard run late in the second quarter of New York’s 37-17 loss to Minnesota last Sunday. He remained down for a few moments as trainers checked on him before getting up and heading to the locker room. He had 20 yards on four carries in the game.

Campbell played in four games with Dallas this season after being claimed off waivers from Houston. The Cowboys waived him on Oct. 9.

The Jets had only Jamal Adams and Terrence Brooks as healthy players at the position.
