After erupting in Week 1 of the season, the New York Jets are back to struggling to score much like they struggled in the preseason. They were the only team in the NFL not to score a touchdown in the preseason. Their offense may get a boost. Dustin Keller is expected to be available for the Jets' next game.



New York will take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, and coach Rex Ryan expects Keller to be available says Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.






"When I talked to Dustin last, he felt he was going to be able to go this week, so I think that will give us a huge boost," Ryan said.

Keller, a tight end, is in his fifth NFL season - all with the New York Jets. He has played in just one game this season and caught one pass. In his career, Keller has over 2,500 yards receiving and 15 touchdowns. He averaged 12.5 yards per reception last season. It matched the highest average of his career.



The Jets could certainly use Keller as another option for quarterback Mark Sanchez. As it stands now, Sanchez is almost devoid of weapons on offense. The Jets' receiving core is nothing like Sanchez has ever seen, and it has shown in the team's overall offense. Keller will open up options for Sanchez up the middle of the field.



New York is just 2-3 this season, but they somehow sit just a game back in the division. They will be facing a much-improved Colts team with rookie sensation Andrew Luck at QB.
