The Jets offense may be getting one of its key weapons back this week.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said yesterday he believes starting tight end Dustin Keller will be able to play Sunday after missing the last four games with a hamstring injury.
“I’m encouraged,” Ryan said. “When I talked to Dustin last, he felt that he’s going to be able to go this week. I think that will give us a huge boost.”
Quarterback Mark Sanchez has clearly missed Keller, one of his favorite targets. Keller originally suffered the injury in the preseason, but returned to play Week 1 against the Bills. He aggravated the injury in that game and has been out ever since.
Keller led the team in receptions in each of the last two years. The Jets view Keller’s return as being like acquiring a player through a trade.
“It will be good to get Dustin Keller back,” Ryan said. “You’re talking about one of the better receiving tight ends in football.”
