Jets Injury Report: Revis Sits Out Again Thursday; Wilkerson Limited

The New York Jets have now released their Thursday injury report ahead of Sunday’s game at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers and it looks somewhat similar to the one they released on Wednesday outside of one new name being added to it.

Not practicing again on Thursday were quarterback Bryce Petty (shoulder), wide receiver Eric Decker (shoulder), tight end Braeden Bowman (knee), guard Brian Winters (concussion), and cornerback Darrelle Revis (hamstring).

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said Thursday that Revis will likely be a game-time decision on Sunday. As for the other four players who failed to practice, it seems unlikely that they will be able to play against the Steelers.

Limited on Thursday for the Jets were wide receiver Jalin Marshall (shoulder), defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) and tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder). While Marshall is moving in the right direction after failing to practice on Wednesday, Wilkerson has gone in the opposite direction as he had practiced fully on Wednesday. He is a player to look for on Friday when the Jets release their final injury report for the week.

Practicing fully on Thursday for the Jets were running back Matt Forte (knee, ribs), wide receiver Jeremy Ross (hamstring), linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin (illness), wide receiver Robby Anderson (back), wide receiver Brandon Marshall (foot), and cornerback Buster Skrine (foot). Skrine, however, is a new addition to the Jets injury report.

    Forte is going to give our team fits

    He’s worse than the KC running core and CIN running core, hopefully we can hold up.

    IF Revis plays with his hamstring barely 100% (most likely a lot less than that) It might actually be to the Steelers advantage, AB and Coates could both have big games against him (other WRs were already exposing him this season before the hammy)

    The Jets not having Decker could be a really good thing for the Steelers, I am expecting Cockrell will be used/play similarly against Marshall to how he did against AJ Green, he can follow the big WR around and have help to eliminate the Jets biggest pass catching threat, NY does have Forte out of the backfield also, but one good thing is that they basically have no TEs that can catch the ball, so that is one thing the Steelers wont have to worry about (and at an area/position they have struggled to cover/stop)

    with an Offense that only has Two main Weapons and a QB who is really struggling I think the Steelers will be able to limit the Jets Offense fairly well, so the biggest challenge (regardless of what was going on with the Jets O) is the Steelers Offense going against the Jets D-Line (It will be hard to run against them and Ben will really have to pay attention to the clock in his head and get the ball out quick) I think the Steelers should be able to win this game, but It might be the closest/hardest fought game they have played so far this season (cinci was only close at the end, so really wasnt that close of a game, this one could take a end of the 4th qtr drive to actually to take the lead or seal the win, I don’t see them winning by more than 10 points)
