The New York Jets were officially eliminated from the playoffs with their loss to the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. Now, not only is their game with the San Diego Chargers this Sunday rendered essentially meaningless, they'll have a new starting quarterback under center in Greg McElroy.
The Jets won't be a picture of health on the offensive side of the ball entering the game. Tight end Dustin Keller is listed as doubtful after sitting out of practice all week with an ankle injury. Wide receivers Braylon Edwards (hamstring), Mardy Gilyard (illness) and Chaz Schilens (knee/calf) are all listed as questionable to play.
Defensively, the Jets will likely be without defensive back Aaron Berry who missed practice all week with a hamstring injury. He's listed as doubtful for the game. Defensive tackle Sione Pouha was limited in practice all week with a back injury and is questionable. Linebacker Ricky Sapp is dealing with an ankle injury and is also questionable for Sunday's game. Outside linebacker Bryan Thomas was limited in practice with a chest injury and is questionable as well.
