Practice report: All hands on deck

December, 6, 2013
FLORHAM PARK -- The New York Jets appeared to have all their players available for Friday morning’s practice, which was held in the field house because of rain.

If receivers Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley are available on Sunday against the Raiders, it will be the first time they both play for the Jets since Week 4. Since the Titans game, one or both of them has been injured. Holmes aggravated his hamstring injury last Wednesday and, although active against Miami, only saw a few first-half plays. Kerley had a bad elbow injury that has caused him to miss three games so far.

Kerley has been an important safety valve for rookie quarterback Geno Smith, who has played poorly in the three games Kerley has been out.

Jets coach Rex Ryan will be asked about their availability as his news conference later this afternoon.
