Jets injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on October 31, 2008 – 1:41 pm

MLB David Harris is looking less and less likely to play Sunday for New York as he doesn’t appear ready to return from a groin injury. Harris rode the stationary bike for practice again on Thursday.

His backup Cody Spencer has been limited in practice the past two days with a shoulder injury, which would leave David Bowens as the only remaining ILB replacement.

Harris is the Jets’ leading tackler. He’s also the team’s defensive signal caller with the radio helmet. If he can’t play fellow ILB Eric Barton is expected to have the radio communication helmet.

TE Chris Baker (hip) practiced on a limited basis, but fellow TE Bubba Franks (hip) did not practice for a second straight day. If Baker and Franks can’t go it would leave them a bit short on the blocking side of things at TE though Eric Mangini insisted that rookie Dustin Keller, a pass catching TE by trade, could block on the line. I have my doubts.

WRs Laveranues Coles (thigh) and Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder) were both limited for a second straight day on Thursday, but both are expected to play Sunday.

S Eric Smith (head) has not practiced yet this week is not expected to play. Abram Elam is expected to replace him in the starting lineup.

OL Damien Woody (personal) has not practiced this week. The team is giving him the game plan via computer. Woody has also been plagued by a nagging calf injury. Wayne Hunter is the Jets’ swing tackle.

Jets injury report

Posted by Chris Brown on October 29, 2008 – 8:17 pm

The list is long for the Jets as far as injuries are concerned.

Not practicing for the Jets Wednesday were RT Damien Woody (personal), TE Bubba Franks (hip) and ILB David Harris (groin). Starting S Eric Smith also did not practice (head).

Harris appears to be the most serious, and his backup Cody Spencer is dinged too (see below). If Harris can’t go David Bowens presumably would step in as the only other backup ILB should Spencer be unable to play as well.

TE Chris Baker (hip), WR Laveranues Coles (thigh), WR Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder) and LB Cody Spencer (shoulder) were all limited in practice Wednesday.

Baker is expected to be back this week. Coles and Cotchery are both nicked up, but expected to play.

Kicker Mike Nugent (thigh) is still out so Jay Feely will continue to kick for the Jets.
