New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller will miss tomorrow's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Dustin Keller injured his ankle against the Arizona Cardinals and will almost certainly miss Sunday's game, another blow to an already struggling Jets offense. Add in that Stephen Hill is also up in the air, with Clyde Gates still out with a concussion, and things start getting scary.
The New York Jets will take a big hit offensively with tight end Dustin Keller out. Dustin Keller is a very steady, reliable contributor at tight end, and has been Mark Sanchez's favorite receiver. Expect him to miss tomorrow's game versus the Jacksonville jaguars due to the ankle injury he suffered against the Arizona Cardinals last week.
Stephen Hill could also miss the game with a knee injury that currently has him listed as questionable. Clyde Gates will miss the game with a concussion.
That leaves the Jets with Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens at wide receiver, Jeff Cumberland at tight end. Mardy Gilyard and Jordan White would also be expected to see the field, though it's difficult to say how much they would be able to contribute. Konrad Reuland would also be involved at tight end and fullback, along with Lex Hilliard. Hayden Smith is on the active roster and could also be used at tight end.
All of that is going on, plus the uncertainty at quarterback. Mark Sanchez will start, with Greg McElroy looming over the sidelines with the clipboard in his hands. Tim Tebow could also be active.
That will put the burden on the Jets offensive line and running backs to get things going on the ground. Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and even Kahlil Bell should see a ton of carries.
