It was a beautiful Saturday around North Jersey and also a particularly healthful one around the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center.
Of the nine players on the Jets’ injury report heading into Monday night’s game against Minnesota, eight participated fully in all team drills at today’s final practice before the game, and all are listed as probable for the Vikings, including cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Revis, who had been bothered by a hamstring pull in the days before Game 2 against New England and aggravated the injury late in the second half on the touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Randy Moss against the Patriots, appears ready to return to action against Moss, now a Viking, former Jets QB Brett Favre, and the Minnesota offense.
“I haven’t had any tweaks when I’ve been out there running the past two practices,” Revis told reporters after Friday’s workout, “and I’ve been running full speed. They’ve been monitoring me every step of the way, just to make sure there are no tweaks or pulls in my hamstring. As of today, if I can play, I would go out there and play.”
The Jets and Vikings provided their final injury reports for Monday’s primetime affair after today’s practices. By NFL parlance, “probable” status means it’s “a virtual certainty” the player “will be available for normal duty.”
Along with Revis, C Nick Mangold (shoulder), DE Shaun Ellis (knee) and OL Wayne Hunter (shin) all improved from limited participation Friday to full-go today. LBs Calvin Pace (foot) and Jason Taylor (elbow) and FB John Conner (neck) all remained full participants.
The only injured Jet who didn’t get the “promotion” to probable was LB Jamaal Westerman (ankle), who was limited today and is questionable for the game.
