JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In an expected move, the Jets have officially ruled out Dustin Keller for Sunday's game against the Jaguars (2-10).
It will be the fifth game the tight end has missed this season due to injury. Keller, who suffered an ankle injury in last week's 7-6 win over Arizona, missed four games because of a hamstring injury earlier in the year.
He has 28 catches for 317 receiving yards in eight games.
Though Rex Ryan wasn't ready to rule out the tight end on Thursday, the coach announced the next day that Keller was doubtful -- and noted that particular injury report designation typically means a player is out.
Backup nose tackle Damon Harrison (ankle) also was ruled out on Saturday, joining WR Clyde Gates (concussion).
QB Tim Tebow (ribs) and WR Stephen Hill (knee) are questionable.
