The New York Jets have now released what figures to be their final official injury report of Week 16 ahead of their Sunday afternoon home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Friday offering shows that two players ended the week listed as doubtful with nine others listed questionable for the contest.
Not practicing again for the Jets on Friday were guard Tom Compton (calf) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) and both end the week listed as doubtful for the Sunday game against the Steelers.
Compton is the Jets starting right guard so look for either Conor McDermott or Brent Qvale to start in his place against the Steelers. If Compton can’t pay on Sunday, it will mark the third different player that has started at right guard for the Jets this season.
Limited in Friday’s practice for the Jets were safety Jamal Adams (ankle), defensive end Henry Anderson (shoulder), wide receiver Robby Anderson (illness), tackle Kelvin Beachum (ankles), cornerback Arthur Maulet (calf), defensive tackle Steve McLendon (knee, hip), cornerback Brian Poole (concussion, ankle), running back Bilal Powell (ankle), and defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (neck) and all nine players end the week listed a questionable on the team’s injury report.
Practicing fully for the Jets on Friday were linebacker B.J. Bello (illness), cornerback Maurice Canady (shoulder), safety Blake Countess (ankle), quarterback Sam Darnold (knee, left thumb), quarterback David Fales (right elbow), safety Bennett Jackson (illness), defensive end Kyle Phillips (hip), tackle Brent Qvale (knee), and defensive end Nathan Shepherd (rib, ankle). none of these nine players were given game status designations on the Jets Friday injury report so all should be available to play on Sunday against the Steelers.
