NEW YORK (AP) — Jets tight end Dustin Keller, wide receiver Stephen Hill, nose tackle Sione Po’uha and fullback John Conner are all doubtful for New York’s game Monday night against the Houston Texans.
None of the four practiced all week – Keller, Hill and Conner because of injured hamstrings, and Po’uha with a sore lower back. Keller hasn’t played since the season opener, and Hill missed last Sunday’s game against San Francisco. The receiving corps is already thin, especially after top receiver Santonio Holmes was lost for the season with a foot injury against the 49ers.
Linebacker Bryan Thomas didn’t practice Saturday because of a hamstring issue and is questionable, as are running back Joe McKnight (illness), safety Eric Smith (hip, knee), cornerback Aaron Berry (ribs) and linebacker Bart Scott (toe).
