A couple of injuries notes for you, off of Rex Ryan’s morning press conference.
Kenrick Ellis and Joe McKnight, both still hobbled by injuries sustained in the first half of the season, will not practice today for the Jets. Of particular note is McKnight, who is still bothered by that high ankle sprain. The feeling coming out of Rex’s morning press conference is that McKnight is unlikely to play against the Seahawks on Sunday. If true, that would be a big loss against a very tough defense. We haven’t gotten a good sense as to Kenrick’s status for Sunday.
Although inititally announced to be missing practice yesterday, linebacker Bart Scott was limited, and he will be limited again in practice today. His status is still up in the air for Sunday’s game. Rex did announce, however, that S Eric Smith, recovering from his knee injury, will be available for Sunday’s game. Although farther down the depth chart at safety, he has been a useful cog in the special teams unit, so his availability will help.
