The NY Jets injury report for Week 12 features a few notable players that could miss Sunday's game. One of which is wide receiver Corey Davis.

Davis injured his groin during Wednesday's practice and was held out of action on Thursday. However, he returned in a limited capacity on Friday seemingly indicating that he might be able to play on Sunday after all.

The Jets originally listed Davis as questionable but downgraded him to doubtful on Saturday. It's unlikely that he's able to play against the Houston Texans.

Elsewhere, running back Michael Carter has been ruled OUT, a notion that was made official when he was placed on the injured reserve on Saturday. Carter will miss at least three weeks with an ankle injury.

Five other players are also listed as questionable. Defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi (foot), defensive end John Franklin-Myers (hip), defensive end Shaq Lawson (wrist), linebacker C.J. Mosley (shoulder), and defensive tackle Nathan Shepherd (elbow) are all listed on the injury report as well.

The NY Jets will likely be without Corey Davis in Week 12

The good news is that most if not all of the players who are listed as questionable should be able to play on Sunday. Lawson, Mosley, and Shepherd were limited participants in practice all week and there's no indication that any of them will be forced to sit out.

Fatukasi did not practice on Thursday but was a limited participant on Friday which would suggest that he should be able to play.

Franklin-Myers popped up on the injury report on Friday with a hip injury, but head coach Robert Saleh said he should be "good to go" that same day. However, he said the same about Corey Davis.

Finally, the Jets will be without senior offensive assistant Matt Cavanaugh who will not be available for the game due to COVID-19 protocols.

Cavanaugh is usually one of Zach Wilson and the quarterbacks' most important coaches on game days. Quarterbacks coach Rob Calabrese will assume his responsibilities.

The Jets are a little banged up heading into their Week 12 matchup with the Texans. At the very least, they will see the return of their rookie quarterback.
