FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets linebacker Jason Taylor has sat out the team’s first practice in preparation for the AFC championship game at Pittsburgh, but has been cleared by doctors to play Sunday night.

Coach Rex Ryan says Wednesday that Taylor was injured at some point during the Jets’ 28-21 win at New England last Sunday, and felt the effects of it later that night. Ryan says he expects Taylor to practice Thursday after he passed medical tests and is “ready to roll.”

Also limited, but expected to play are: cornerbacks Darrelle Revis (hamstring) and Drew Coleman (knee), safety James Ihedigbo (right knee/ankle).
