FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller sat out practice for the second straight day with a sprained left ankle, leaving his status for the team's game at Jacksonville on Sunday uncertain.
Backup quarterback Tim Tebow was limited for the second straight day Thursday with two broken ribs, and might not be able to play against his hometown Jaguars.
"I'm still not ready to say I'm comfortable with him (playing) right now," coach Rex Ryan said. "We'll see how it goes."
Keller, the Jets' second-leading receiver with 28 catches, was hurt in New York's 7-6 victory over Arizona on Sunday.
"The fact he hasn't practiced in two days, I know he's getting better, so we'll see," Ryan said. "I'm not willing or ready to rule him out, certainly, but this is the second day that he's missed. But, I know that he's getting substantially better."
Keller, a free agent after this season, has struggled with injuries this year. He led the Jets in receptions the last two seasons, but has not been healthy enough this season to be a consistent weapon in the offense. Keller missed four games early in the season with a hamstring injury.
