The Jets are getting two of their key guys back on the offense this week when they face the Indianapolis Colts, Stephen Hill and Dustin Keller. The offense is struggling, to say the least, we have all seen it. They need these two guys back in the worst way. Here is Rex talking about getting these guys back, first on Hill
Really, he’s been out, what? (joking) Did he miss two games or one game? I think he only missed the one game, right? Two games. Yeah, he missed two, I’m sorry, that’s right. I think it will help. Anytime you have a big fast guy that is going to take two guys with him (it helps). If not, you can throw it to him one-on-one. I think that might not show up on stats, but I think it could be a factor in the game.
And then on Keller:
It’s probably equally as tough on him as it was me and every one of his teammates. That was tough. You sense his frustration because he clearly wanted to get out there. (He did) whatever was asked of him to get back out there. It just was slow to heal. Here’s one of our best-conditioned athletes and he has this injury. It’s just sometimes guys can heal from things faster. He’s had injuries in the past, just like that (and) he’s right back. But it was frustrating for Dustin. I’m just happy that he’s ready to go. We’ll be smart. I don’t think he’ll play 60 snaps, but he’s going to play a lot. He looks really good out there.
This is great news for the Jets. You can tell that Rex is a bit giddy reading these quotes, as well he should be. It will be nice to see the offense with most of their guys healthy finally. It can’t get worse, can only get better.
