New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh announced a major change for the offense in Week 5. The 1-3 Jets will face the 1-3 Denver Broncos in a matchup that will decide who can stay in the playoff hunt in early October.
The Jets and Broncos matchup was thought to be an intriguing battle of AFC contenders in the preseason. The game was certainly marked on my calendar after Broncos head coach Sean Payton took shots at his predecessor, Jets offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, this summer.
But both teams have been a disappointment in the first month of the regular season. The Jets offense has been lethargic after Aaron Rodgers suffered an Achilles injury on his first drive with the team. Fans have been unhappy with Zach Wilson’s play.
Breece Hall’s limited role on offense, as he returns to normal after his ACL injury in 2022, has not helped matters in New York.
But that should change.
The New York Jets will play Hall more
According to Adam Schefter with ESPN, Saleh said this week the team would not limit Hall’s touches in the future.
Jets’ HC Robert Saleh told reporters that the team will not be limiting RB Breece Hall’s workload any longer.

Getting Hall back to full health significantly boosts the Jets’ offense. Hall is averaging 6.6 yards per carry this season. But he only has 32 carries through the first four games.
Hall has no touchdowns.
