Good afternoon Jets fans, anyone up for some potential good news?

Jets tight end Dustin Keller was limited in practice today, but is improving. His “limited”, was running at full speed during on the side to test his hamstring, but not during team drills. The plan is that Dustin will go full out in practice tomorrow. If all goes well, Keller believes that he will play on Sunday afternoon against the Buffalo Bills.

“I don’t see any reason–everything has been progressing well–I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t go,” Keller said.

Hopefully, Dustin doesn’t have any setbacks come tomorrow’s practice. We all know the Jets woes on offense leading up to week one. The Jets need as many healthy weapons on the field as they can have. Dustin Keller is Mark Sanchez’s safety net, and the guy Mark has the most chemistry with by far. The Jets need him on the field as a threat down the seam this Sunday, and every wekk.
