NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Backup quarterback Tim Tebow and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley are among several Jets players listed as questionable for the team’s game against the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

Tebow, whose role in the offense has been limited, fully participated in practice Wednesday despite a rib injury and is expected to play.

Kerley, the team’s leading receiver, was limited with heel and hamstring issues and could be a game-time decision. He was also questionable last Sunday, but had three catches for 43 yards at St. Louis.

Also limited at practice and listed as questionable but expected to play are: defensive linemen Sione Po’uha (lower back) and Kenrick Ellis (knee), running back-kick returner Joe McKnight (sprained right ankle), linebacker Bart Scott (hyperextended toe) and defensive back Aaron Berry (quadriceps).

Meanwhile, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out by the Patriots.

Gronkowski injured his left arm in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. The team has not specified the injury, though it has been reported as a broken arm that will take one to two months to heal.

“I never like to see anybody get hurt,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday. “I’m not sad he’s missing our game.”

Gronkowski did not practice this week, according to New England’s injury report.

“They have like five tight ends on their roster so I don’t know if they will put another guy in that role,” said Ryan.

Given Tebow’s snaps, would it really matter if he plays? Be heard in the comments below…
