Jets injury report: Dustin Keller, Stephen Hill inactive vs. Titans, questionable going forward

US PRESSWIRE

Dustin Keller and Stephen Hill were unable to suit up for the New York Jets Monday night against the Tennessee Titans on a night Mark Sanchez looked lost.

The New York Jets were without two potential targets for Mark Sanchez on a night their postseason hopes collapsed behind a poor passing performance.

There's no telling whether Sanchez would have been able to hit Dustin Keller or Stephen Hill. But the team came up four points short after four ugly interceptions from the fourth-year quarterback, and any little bit would have helped. Keller was listed as doubtful with an ankle injury suffered last week, and was replaced by Jeff Cumberland. Although Cumberland had the team's only touchdown reception, he was also unable to reel in a pass earlier in the game in the end zone, as his apparent touchdown catch was overruled, with the eventual margin of victory being the difference between the touchdown he thought he caught and the field goal the Jets eventually got.

As for Hill, the rookie was also listed as doubtful with a knee injury, but didn't suit up. Instead, New York kept six wide receivers active, including Braylon Edwards. Edwards had three catches for 47 yards, but was the only one who made any major impact, as Sanchez targeted the other five wide receivers eight times with only one completion. Hill was unable to practice all week, and could be done for the year.

Linebacker Bryan Thomas sat with a strained pectoral muscle suffered last week. It's unclear how long the veteran linebacker will remain sidelined.

No players had to leave Monday night's game with injuries.
