Injury Report: Kerley doubtful, but willing
By Jane McManus
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Jeremy Kerley said he is ready, but New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said the wide receiver is doubtful for Sunday’s game in Baltimore.
“Very doubtful,” Ryan said.
In his second week recovering from a dislocated elbow, Kerley said he is ready to come back, which is a little amazing considering how bad the injury looked on impact.
“I thought the worst,” Kerley said. “I thought I had broken something. But (it’s) slightly dislocated, nothing major, definitely can recover from it, definitely looking to jump back on the field.”
Kerley was limited in practice on Friday, but wore a red jersey. He was able to get in on some team reps, and caught a few passes using both hands. On Thursday he was just using one hand to catch them.
“One hand, two hands, doesn’t even matter,” Kerley said. “If they throw it I’m going to try to catch it."
Technically he could still play on Sunday, but Ryan indicated the reason he wasn’t ruled out was because he practiced in a limited capacity. Still, Kerley indicated he wanted to get back on the field.
“I’m looking to jump on the field tomorrow whenever, just got to play it day to day though,” Kerley said.
