Jets tight end Dustin Keller will miss New York's game at Jacksonville on Sunday because of a sprained left ankle. Keller was listed as doubtful Friday after injuring his ankle last Sunday in the Jets' 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He is second on the team with 28 receptions despite missing four games earlier this season with a hamstring injury. Keller, who sat out practice all week, will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by backup Jeff Cumberland, who has 21 catches this season. The Jets will also be without backup defensive tackle Damon Harrison, who turned an ankle during practice Thursday. Backup quarterback Tim Tebow, recovering from two broken ribs, was expected to be a game-time decision. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Preview: Jets (5-7) @ Jaguars (2-10)

This week the Jets travel to Tim Tebow's hometown to play the Jaguars, unfortunately for the legion of Tebow supporters who undoubtedly wanted to line up to watch him play quarterback, equally unfortunate for many Jet fans that Greg McElroy won't be getting the start either, as you know, since it's all that anyone has talked about the entire week, Mark Sanchez will remain...

Only in New York? Greg McElroy declared inactive for Jets after leading them to victory in week 13

Per multiple sources including Jason LaCanfora on twitter Tim Tebow is active today for the Jets. Tebow has been the second man on the Jets depth chart all year; so, maybe it was a ‘can’t lose your spot due to injury’ piece; maybe Rex Ryan thinks he’s their best backup quarterback; or maybe it was a marketing ploy by Woody Johnson and/or NFL higherups; either way, McElroy...

Flight Delayed: Why The New York Jets Need To Start Greg McElroy Over Mark Sanchez

The New York Jets have found themselves in a rather familiar situation throughout the 2012 season.  They are making headlines.  The Rex Ryan era has been full of promises, successes, disappointments, and turmoil.  The last three plus years in New York have been nothing short of a media frenzy, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Last Sunday, Rex Ryan chose to...

Examining the Jets Offensive Line Over the Years

Florham Park, NJ - If you ever get a chance to walk into an NFL locker room you won't be able to avoid the sight of a few gigantic 300 pound plus offensive linemen, it'd be impossible not to notice them as they waddle around room. The irony of course is how often they go unnoticed on the field, yes they are still giants among the other players, but they stay packed in tight...

Jets efficient in win against Jaguars

Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and the New York Jets kept their postseason hopes alive with a 17-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn't need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time around.

Gameday Deciding Factors: Jets at Jaguars

In the midst of an easy final stretch of the schedule, the New York Jets are facing their usual late-season do-or-die situation.

Week 13 Record: 0-3 Season Record: 13-24-2 Well, at least I’m not in last place in The Race For The Steak (sorry, Joe). At this point my picks are becoming valuable, because you can win some money if you do the exact opposite of what I say. I’m sort of like the new Evan Silva. This sucks.
