Posted August 26, 2012 on AP on Fox
New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller has injured his hamstring and is out for the rest of the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. It was unclear when Keller was injured, but he appeared to go down quickly after a 24-yard catch on the Jets' first offensive play Sunday night. A few minutes later he walked to the locker room, and the Jets announced he was out for the rest of the game. Keller and the rest of the starters were expected to play into the third quarter. Keller led the Jets last season with 65 catches for 815 yards and five touchdowns.

Hey Namath, Have you Watched Mark Sanchez Play For The Jets This Preseason?

Joe Namath was so quick to come out and criticize the Jets for taking Tim Tebow in the off season you have to wonder if he has his eyes closed this preseason.

Jets circus continues

Another day, another ridiculous story out of Jets camp.
