NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Jets linebacker David Harris did not practice on Thursday because of a toe injury, while wide receiver Santonio Holmes was limited with a sore knee and quadriceps.
But both are expected to play Sunday against Jacksonville.
“The trainers feel confident that (Harris) can play,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said.
Harris missed his second straight day of practice after being injured in the opener against Dallas on Sunday. Ryan said the toe is not broken and Harris doesn’t have turf toe.
“He’s got a tendon that’s hurting, I think,” said Ryan.
The team practiced on its turf in the field house because of rain, and Ryan admitted Harris “would’ve done more” if they practiced on grass.
Meanwhile, according to Holmes, his injuries are “nothing to be worried about.”
“Game day is on Sunday,” he said.
Running back Joe McKnight dislocated a finger, but missed no time, while safety Eric Smith rolled an ankle. Both are also expected to play.
