The New York Jets and New England Patriots are set to face off tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m. ET, and here is a look at the injury report for both teams.
New York Jets
WR Greg Salas (knee)- The New England Patriots actually acquired Greg Salas in an August trade with the St. Louis Rams last year, and there seemed to be a Josh McDaniels connection in that deal. Salas, however, was only placed on the practice squad, and the Philadelphia Eagles poached him from the Patriots. He had a promising preseason with the Eagles this year, and the Jets just recently plucked Salas off of the Eagles practice squad. So yeah, two p-squad (Zach Sudfeld was p-squad bound) coups for the Jets this year in former Patriots.
WR Santonio Holmes (foot)- He may be inconsistent, but he is undoubtedly the Jets most talented wide receiver. The Patriots have a great secondary, but they should be relieved that it is one less weapon for them to worry about with Aqib Talib most likely out. Holmes’s hamstring caused him to miss every practice session this week.
RB Bilal Powell (neck)- He suffered a very minor neck injury last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he is definitely a full-go this week after practicing all week.
WR Jeremy Kerley (back)
RB Chris Ivory (hamstring)
DT Kendrick Ellis (back)
S Jaiquawn Jarrett (knee)
CB Kyle Wilson (concussion)- Wilson was cleared and fully practiced yesterday; he’s playing without a doubt.
CB Dee Milliner (hamstring)- Rex Ryan expected him to play, and he will definitely take the field this week.
WR David Nelson (hamstring)
LB Quinton Coples (ankle)
CB Antonio Cromartie (hip)
CB Darrin Walls (shoulder)
New England Patriots
RB Leon Washington (ankle)
DT Tommy Kelly (knee)
WR Danny Amendola (concussion)- He suffered a serious concussion last week against the New Orleans Saints, and he’s out indefinitely at this point; the concussion looked that bad.
CB Aqib Talib (hip)- Talib suffered a hip flexor injury in last week’s game against the Saints, and he made his return to the practice field yesterday. However, he reportedly did not look good in practice due to the injury, and he will likely make his return next week against the Miami Dolphins.
TE Michael Hoomanawanui (knee)
WR Julian Edelman (thigh)- He was limited during yesterday’s practice, but this injury most likely isn’t a real issue.
WR Matthew Slater (wrist)
RB Brandon Bolden (knee)
RG Dan Connolly (concussion)
G/T Marcus Cannon (shoulder)
TE Rob Gronkowski (back)- Gronkowski received his medical clearance, therefore he will make his season debut this week.
S Tavon Wilson (hamstring)
CB Kyle Arrington (groin)
LT Nate Solder (back)
FS Devin McCourty (shoulder)
LE Rob Ninkovich (groin)
