What’s that? Some good news for the struggling Jets offense? It seems like it is, finally.
Although Nick Mangold will be listed as questionable for the game on Sunday, Rex Ryan did announce some good news at his press conference today.
Rex announced that both Stephen Hill and Dustin Keller are expected to play on Sunday. Both are coming off of their own respective hamstring injuries. These will both be major additions for a Jets offense that has struggled, and for a quarterback that needs all of the weapons he can possibly get around him.
Coach Ryan did announce that they will be smart with Keller, limiting him to under 60 snaps, which is a good idea, as rushing back in week one has already caused Keller a setback. To keep Dustin healthy for the long term, a reduced workload this week will help. Stephen Hill will help as a vertical threat down the football field, which can only help, as long as Hill holds on to the football.
In other news, Darrelle Revis will have his ACL surgery on Thursday, and is finally being moved to season ending IR. Seventh round draft pick Antonio Allen wil be elevated from the practice squad.
We will have a full injury report later on.
