Friday, December 2, 2011
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley are listed as probable for the game at Washington, while defensive lineman Mike DeVito has been ruled out with a knee injury.
Tomlinson and Kerley practiced all week after missing two games with sprained medial collateral ligaments in their left knees, suffered against New England on Nov. 13. Coach Rex Ryan says Friday that Tomlinson will return to his role as the Jets' third-down back, while Kerley will be the No. 3 receiver and handle punt return duties.
DeVito has not practiced since spraining the MCL in his left knee against Buffalo last Sunday. He missed two games this season with a similar injury to his right knee. DeVito will be replaced by rookie Kenrick Ellis.
