Dustin Keller, Sione Po'uha, Stephen Hill doubtful vs. Texans
Not surprisingly, the Jets have listed TE Dustin Keller (hamstring), WR Stephen Hill (hamstring), NT Sione Po'uha (back) and FB John Conner (hamstring) as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Houston Texans.
All four did not practice this week.
This will mark the third straight game Keller has missed and the second for Hill, who injured his hamstring in the Jets' Week 3 win in Miami.
Newly acquired CB Aaron Berry (ribs), RB Joe McKnight (illness), LB Bart Scott (toe), S Eric Smith (hip, knee) and LB Bryan Thomas (hamstring) are all questionable.
Scott and Thomas did not practice on Saturday. Berry said Friday that the injury occurred when he was twisting his body during practice drills. He shrugged off the injury as no big deal, however, and said it's due to him not being in football shape the past few months. He said he'll be healthy enough to play Monday.
For the Texans: S Quintin Demps (thumb/forearm) has been ruled out, while WR Lestar Jean (knee) and RB Ben Tate (toe) are questionable.
