Jets' Keller, Tebow uncertain vs. Jaguars

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.

The Jets' receiving corps could be a bit short-handed against the Jaguars if Keller can't play since wide receiver Clyde Gates is unlikely to play after sustaining a concussion against New England on Thanksgiving night and rookie Stephen Hill was limited Thursday with a knee injury.

Hill missed practice Wednesday after being hurt against the Cardinals, so his return to the practice field was a promising sign. He has 21 catches for 252 yards and leads the team with three touchdown receptions.

``I don't think (the injury) was that big, but we held him out (Wednesday) and he's doing really well,'' Ryan said.

Running back Joe McKnight (ankle, ribs), guard Brandon Moore (hip) and defensive tackles Damon Harrison (ankle) and Sione Po'uha (back) were all limited. Special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff expected McKnight to be active and return kickoffs against the Jaguars.

As Dan Snyder and his advisors have huddled up to discuss whether to change the name of his Washington franchise over the past two weeks, D.C. sports fans have chimed in on social media making suggestions for what the new name should be.

Though there is a long list of ideas that have been tossed around, two names have emerged as the favorites among fans and former players: Redwolves and Warriors.

Of course, many of these suggestions came with fan art included. While we dove into the Redwolves submissions over here, these are our five favorite Warriors designs that have circulated around social media:

Petition is in my bio if you guys want to sign it. Making the case for Washington #Redwolves, a name and story I have personally fallen in love with ; Here’s the military connection to Redwolves ; “The Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 84 “Red Wolves” was a helicopter squadron of the United States Navy Reserve. Along with the “Firehawks” of HSC-85, Red Wolves were only one of two squadrons in the US Navy dedicated to supporting Navy SEAL and SWCC Teams, and Combat Search & Rescue. Now let’s talk about the animal itself : The red wolf is the world's most endangered canid, and the Southeast’s native wolf. Uniquely "All-American," the red wolf's entire historical range is confined within what is now the United States. Once roaming as far west as Texas, down into Florida, and up into the Midwest, the red wolf now persists in only a fraction of its range. It has lost more of its historical territory—99.7 percent—than any other large carnivore, including lions and tigers. Redwolves were designated as an endangered species in 1967. Today, about 40 red wolves roam their native habitats in eastern North Carolina as a non-essential, experimental population and more than 200 red wolves are maintained in captive breeding facilities throughout America. I am very passionate towards the #Redwolves movement. Redwolves are an extremely endangered species and this could be just the thing to get them some national recognition and help grow their population back somehow. Washington could partner up somehow with a foundation that can give these wolves more habits to live in peace and stabilize their population. Even if this doesn’t become the name, I’ll be at peace knowing I spoke my mind. This is what I want the name to be. If you don’t like the Redwolves name, that’s okay. It’s okay to think differently. Don’t feel pressured into liking or not liking something, I just am making it known that this is how I feel. Photo credits go to : (@dcsportsxp @redskinsgraffix @koenvgraphics)
