All three are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at Washington, but one appears to have a much better chance to play than the others.
Mario Williams, who missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, was able to get out on the field and practice on a limited basis Friday. It was an encouraging sign for head coach Rex Ryan.
“That’s a good sign,” said Ryan. “He practiced so that looks good. He was in the meetings this week and had a mask on (so he didn’t spread germs). But we think he’s going to be ready to roll.”
Bacarri Rambo (knee) and Karlos Williams (shoulder) are both bigger question marks for Sunday.
Rambo was able to return to practice Friday after suffering a setback in Wednesday’s practice that forced him to sit out Thursday’s session.
“I think he looked good,” said Ryan of his Friday practice. “We’ve just got to be careful with him because he’s been dealing with that knee for quite a while. But it’s good to have him back out there.”
For Karlos Williams it’s a contact issue. Without there being much contact in practice this time of year when bodies are worn down it’s hard to ascertain just what kind of punishment Williams injured shoulder can take.
“You really don’t know. You don’t know,” said Williams. “If it happens it happens this Sunday. If not, you’ve got to wait another week and play the next opponent. It goes day by day.”
“We’ll see. He’s doing well,” said Ryan of Karlos Williams. “He’s running great out here and he’s trying and pushing so hopefully we get good news on it. But you’re not going to put a guy out there if he’s not ready for contact. If he’s not, we’re not putting him out there.”
