FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Wide receiver Stephen Hill, tight end Dustin Keller and defensive tackle Sione Po'uha will not practice Thursday for the Jets. Hill (hamstring) and Keller (Hamstring) both missed Sunday's game against San Francisco, and Po'uha has dealt with a lower-back issue this season.

Hill said Wednesday his hamstring is feeling better but he will have to test it either Sunday or Monday before he knows about his availability for the Monday night game. The offense could certainly use Hill and Keller, as wide receiver Santonio Holmes was recently lost for the year with a Lisfranc injury.

Po'uha's injury isn't a setback, but instead seems to be a continuation of the back problems that have been nagging him this year. He played 27 snaps in the 34-0 loss to the 49ers.

"You play as many snaps as he did and obviously that's something we'll stay on top of," Jets head coach Rex Ryan said. "He's been battling that all season really."

Linebacker Bart Scott (toe), fullback John Conner (hamstring) and linebacker Bryan Thomas (hamstring) also will not practice Thursday, while safety Eric Smith (hip/knee) is limited.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (shoulder), linebacker Nick Bellore (shoulder), quarterback Mark Sanchez (back), center Nick Mangold (wrist), linebacker Calvin Pace (achilles), defensive end Mike DeVito (calf), guard Brandon Moore (hip), safety LaRon Landry (heel), guard Matt Slauson (knee), tackle Austin Howard (back), receiver Jeremy Kerley (finger), safety Josh Bush (shoulder), safety Yeremiah Bell (shoulder) and tight end Jeff Cumberland (ribs) will all practice fully.
