Catching up with Bilal Powell

Remember Bilal Powell, the face of the University of Louisville football program during the 2010 season? How did he fare during his first season in the National Football League?

Powell spent most of his time with the New York Jets absorbing the action on the field. He played in only two games, had 13 carries for 21 yards, and a fumble on Denver’s one-yard line. He also caught a pass for seven yards.

With LaDainian Tomlinson expected to retire, Powell hopes to compete for the backup running back position to Shonn Greene next season.

The Jets finished second in the AFC’s East Division with an 8-8 won-lost record.
