Jets NT Jenkins has hip injury

The player that sticks out like a behemoth of a nose tackle on the Jets injury report is their behemoth of a nose tackle. Kris Jenkins was limited in practice Wednesday for the Jets with a hip injury. No word on the severity of it, but with as dominant as he’s been any Jenkins that’s less than 100 percent would be welcome.

Other Jets players of note that are a bit hobbled include ILB Eric Barton (knee) who was limited on Wednesday, WR Laveranues Coles (thigh) who was also limited. LB Bryan Thomas (shoulder) was limited as well.

ILB David Harris is back in the lineup and has played the past couple of weeks in his return from a groin injury that kept him out of the first matchup with the Bills. I asked Jets coach Eric Mangini if Harris is full go as of yet.

“It gets better as we move along,” said Mangini of Harris’ groin. “Last week was really more play time than we had anticipated, because Eric Barton got a little bit nicked up early in the game, so David had to move into a primary sub-role for us. but he fought through it well and was productive. There’s some things where he’s rusty at missing the time that he did and not seeing what you see during the course of the week. But with David, he’s a dilligent guy and I think he’ll get that rust knocked off pretty quickly.”

WR/QB Brad Smith (head) did not practice.
