Harris still nursing toe injury

By Rich Cimini

For the second straight day, LB David Harris was a bystander at practice -- the early portion anyway.

Harris, who injured a toe Sunday night against the Cowboys, stretched with the team Thursday in the field house, but he didn't participate in any positional drills. When the team broke up into units, Harris went off to the side to work with a trainer. He was seen jogging, and it was clear the toe was causing some discomfort.

Despite the ominous signs, Harris is expected to play Sunday against the Jaguars, according to Rex Ryan. His presence in this game will be vital because the Jaguars are a power-running team, and Harris might be the Jets' best run stuffer.
