Richardson (Hamstring) Questionable for Houston

10 Jets Listed as Probable for Sunday; QB Brian Hoyer (Concussion) Confirmed Out for Texans


The biggest unknown on today's final Jets injury list of the week is the state of DE Sheldon Richardson's hamstring.

Richardson didn't practice all week and he's listed as questionable by head coach Todd Bowles for Sunday's game at Houston.

"I'll see him warm up before the game. I'll make a decision after that," Bowles said today of Richardson. "It will be a gametime decision."

Otherwise, it could be said that the Green & White's health is as good as it's been going into a game since the season opener against Cleveland.

Of the 13 players on this week's report, 10 practiced full today at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center and are listed as probable for Sunday's game at Houston.

That includes S Calvin Pryor, who's missed three-plus games with an ankle injury, and RB Bilal Powell, who's sat four games also with an ankle injury.

And Ryan Fitzpatrick appears to be full speed ahead after practicing full for a second day following left thumb surgery a week ago. "He's fine. He'll play," Bowles said of Fitzpatrick. "He's getting significantly better."

CB Buster Skrine (shoulder/hand) is also questionable and S Dion Bailey (ankle) is the only player listed as "out" for this game.

Among other injured frontliners, both starting corners — Darrelle Revis (hip) and Antonio Cromartie (quad) — practiced full today and are probable for Houston, and the same is true of starting WRs Brandon Marshall (ankle/toe) and Eric Decker (knee).

For the Texans, head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed the reports today that starting QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) will miss the Jets game and backup T.J. Yates will get his first NFL start in four seasons.

Houston is also listing CB Kareem Jackson (ankle) as out, while ILB Akeem Dent (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (hamstring) are questionable. WR DeAndre Hoplins is probable, although he didn't practice Wednesday and Thursday and was limited today. And OLB Jadeveon Clowney (back) is also probable after full practices the last two days.
