Could it possibly be some good news on the injury front for the New York Jets? The answer is potentially yes.

Rex Ryan, in his morning press conference at Florham Park today, announced that WR Chaz Schilens is out for Sunday’s game against Carolina. It’s hard to believe he will be able to make the team being out for so long.

Now, for the potentially good news. Rex also said that he is hopeful that Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley “have a shot” to play on Sunday night. This could be huge news for the New York Jets. As we all know, it’s been tough sledding for the Jets offense so far, in part because no wide receivers have been available. With Sunday as the final real dress rehearsal for the first team, if they can get some guys back it would be great.
