The New York Jets have a long injury list for Wednesday's practice, but they did get some good news as tight end Dustin Keller and wide receiver Stephen Hill both returned to practice on a limited basis as the Jets prepare for the Indianapolis Colts.

Missing practice for the Jets on Wednesday were center Nick Mangold (ankle), defensive tackle Sione Po'uha (lower back), defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (knee), fullback John Conner (hamstring), wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder) and safety LaRon Landry (heel). Head coach Rex Ryan was hopeful that Mangold will be able to play on Sunday after spraining his ankle Monday night. Landry usually takes two days off after a game, so his absence was expected.

Limited at practice on Wednesday were tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring), wide receiver Stephen Hill (hamstring), cornerback Aaron Berry (ribs), linebacker Bart Scott (toe) and linebacker Bryan Thomas (hamstring). Ryan expects Keller to return to the field after missing the last four games, but Hill's status is still up in the air.
