It’s a trick-or-treat injury report for the Jets this Friday. The sweet part is that both wide receivers Laveranues Coles (thigh) and Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder) are listed as probable after being limited in practice all week. The scary part is that the Jets, already without staring safety Eric Smith (out, head), may be without leading tackler LB David Harris (doubtful, groin) against the Bills.
On Thursday, Rams coach Jim Haslett described RB Steven Jackson as a game-time decision when St. Louis hosts Arizona this weekend. On Friday, Jackson was listed as questionable on the Rams’ injury report.

The Jaguars will be without WR Mike Walker for the third straight week due to a knee injury. WR Reggie Williams and CB Rashean Mathis are both listed as probable vs. the Bengals.
The full injury report doesn’t come out until after 5 pm eastern, but the Eagles already have ruled out tight end L.J. Smith, who suffered a concussion last Sunday vs. Atlanta.
