Found October 10, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:




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.

Tim Tebow tweets about 666 before ‘Monday Night Football’ game

Via Larry Brown Sports: Tim Tebow stoked some religious fires before the “Monday Night Football” game between the Jets and Texans by recognizing that this was the 666th edition of the program.

The New York Jets cannot score on offense. They have to start Tim Tebow if they want to win. Week 6 Preview.

Tim Tebow is the Jets only chance at winning. I've been calling for Tebow to start for New York since they traded for him. In other articles I've noted the lack of talent on offense and less than dominate defense as reasons to start Tebow. This was all before Holmes and Revis went down. The bottom line is that teams that lack offensive talent run option offenses. You...

Why the Jets are keeping Tim Tebow on the sidelines

The New York Jets interest in Tim Tebow was surprising. Tebow won a slue of improbable games last season for a lackluster Denver team but with a career completion percentage of 47.5% he had only proven critics that he was not a traditional passer. Thus far the Jets have kept Tim Tebow on the sidelines for much of the season. While playing in the wildcat formation he has thrown one...
