Jets' Burress, DeVito questionable for Bills game
Friday, November 4, 2011
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress is questionable for the team's game at Buffalo on Sunday with a sore lower back.
Defensive linemen Mike DeVito (knee) and Kenrick Ellis (left ankle), and defensive back Isaiah Trufant (hamstring) were also limited at practice Friday and listed as questionable. Coach Rex Ryan says if the game against the Bills were Friday, it's likely neither DeVito nor Ellis would play.
Burress, added to the injury report Thursday, still has soreness -- something he has experienced at times throughout the season but hadn't previously been limited by it. Ryan says he thinks he'll be fine, "but sometimes those backs are troublesome. Hopefully he's feeling good when we play on Sunday." Burress is coming off a three-touchdown performance against San Diego before the bye.
