Ivory was held to less than 50 yards rushing for the second straight week in Monday night's 27-19 loss to Chicago but did have four receptions for 52 yards.
The Jets running back finished with 44 yards on 10 carries after totaling 43 on 13 attempts in a loss to Green Bay on Sept. 14. Ivory, who has 189 rushing yards in the three games, might also have some tough sledding against Detroit this week. The Lions are allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game at 63.7. Given that Ivory had one catch for three yards in the first two contests, he likely doesn't show enough potential for a start this week.
