The best indication about the Jets’ readiness for Buffalo is that no one was confined to a stationary bike during the portion of Thursday’s practice the media was allowed to watch.

Jeremy Kerley didn’t hesitate.

Despite sporting a red non-contact jersey just a little while earlier, the Jets slot receiver declared Tuesday he was ready to face the Buffalo Bills.

Both Quinton Coples and Muhammad Wilkerson were on the practice field Monday morning – a potentially good sign heading into Sunday’s game against the AFC East rival Bills.

As expected, the Jets have ruled out slot receiver Jeremy Kerley for Thursday night's game in Foxborough. 

He was diagnosed Monday with a concussion, prompting the team to re-sign wideout Ben Obomanu.

OLB Quinton Coples (ankle) also has been ruled out, along with QB Mark Sanchez. The fifth-year quarterback told reporters Monday that getting a second opinion on his injured right...
