The Jets look healthy for Sunday’s opener against the Bills.
Jets coach Adam Gase said both wide receiver Robby Anderson (calf) and cornerback Trumaine Johnson (hamstring) are on track to play Sunday. Both players were limited in practice on Wednesday, but Gase said the team was just being cautious.
He also said he expects right guard Brian Winters (shoulder) to practice fully Thursday.
Anderson sustained a calf injury against the Saints in Week 3 of the preseason. Gase said the speedster is ready to go, though.
“He’s good,” Gase said. “We’re just being smart as far as how much we’re using him and just making sure. It had been a couple of weeks. We’re just trying to make sure he’s good. He keeps saying he’s fine. I think it’s just more us being cautious.”
So he’ll play Sunday?
“It looks like it,” Gase said.
Johnson, the team’s No. 1 cornerback, injured his hamstring in practice on Aug. 11 and missed the remaining portion of training camp and the preseason.
Gase said they were hopeful that Johnson could practice fully Thursday.
“We’re leaning toward that way,” Gase said. “We’re just keeping an eye on him, just trying to be smart. It’s been a while since he’s been out there, even though he did practice last time. I just keep asking him to communicate with us, just make sure you’re not holding anything back on us.”
And his status for Sunday?
“We’ve just got to get through the week. The more he’s out there, the better,” Gase said.
The Jets do have one addition to the injury report. Outside linebacker Frankie Luvu hurt his hand in Wednesday’s practice and will have a splint on the hand but can practice.
