The talk this week on the New York Jets injury report has been about cornerback Darrelle Revis, but it appears now that tight end Dustin Keller might also not be ready to go Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Keller has been battling a hamstring injury suffered last week against the Buffalo Bills and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports via Twitter that Keller will not practice on Friday.
With Dustin Keller not at practice — and Epps being signed — it appears Keller’s sore hamstring will keep him from playing vs Steelers

Mehta also reports that the Jets signed tight end Dedrick Epps off of the Chicago Bears practice squad today, so that is another sign that Keller will likely be down on Sunday. Look for Jeff Cumberland to get the start in the place of Keller.
We will have the full injury report for both the Steelers and the Jets a little later in the day.
