FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (WFAN/AP) — New York Jets wide receivers Plaxico Burress and Jeremy Kerley are full participants at practice after getting over illnesses that limited them.
Kerley has practiced for the first time all week on Thursday, while Burress is back after being limited on Wednesday. Both will be fine for the Jets’ Week 16 showdown with the Giants.
Linebacker David Harris received an excused absence, but coach Rex Ryan believes he’ll definitely play on Saturday.
Running back Joe McKnight, the NFL’s leading kick returner, is limited again as he recovers from a separated right shoulder and hyper-extended elbow. His status is uncertain.
Also limited are defensive back Marquice Cole, safety Eric Smith and defensive lineman Mike DeVito — all with knee ailments — and wide receiver Santonio Holmes (hip). All but Cole is definite to play.
Does a healthy Burress and Kerley give the Jets the edge in their upcoming battle with the Giants? Share you thoughts below...
