Week 1 Injury Report Analysis

Dustin Keller (Hamstring, Did not practice)-Keller has been Mark Sanchez’s most consistent target in the past three years, and it would be a blow to the Jets’ offense if he can’t play. Last year in two games against Buffalo he made eight catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Post-practice he told reporters that he expects to play on Sunday.

Joe McKnight (Hamstring, Limited practice) – McKnight was limited in practice but expects to play Sunday. Despite losing out on the third down back job to Bilal Powell, McKnight is the most explosive player in the Jets backfield and as the AFC’s leading kick returner last season he will again play a major role on special teams.

Brandon Moore (Hip, Limited practice) – Moore was limited in practice but expects to play. The Jets offensive line is a question mark as it is, and if Moore does not play Buffalo’s defensive line will be able to wreak havoc on the right side.

Sione Pouha (Back, Limited practice) – Pouha practiced during individual drills but it is still unsure if he will play. Because of the Bills spread attack it is likely that the Jets will be in nickel and dime packages, which Pouha does not typically play in. Still, he is a cog on the defensive line and having him in there to slow down Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller would be preferable for the Jets.

Brian Thomas (Unknown, Limited practice) – Thomas was limited in practice but there is no update as to what type of injury he is suffering from. He could be resting his Achilles which he tore last season in an effort to be fresh heading into week one.
