Dustin Keller left Sunday's preseason game between the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers with a hamstring injury. The Jets have made it official that he will not return to the game. Keller limped into the locker room following the team's second play of their first offensive possession of the game. There is no word yet on his long-term health status.
Analysis: It's hard to tell whether the Jets are simply playing it safe or if this is a significant issue, but the injury did not appear to be overly serious. Still, the Jets don't have much depth at the position with Jeff Cumberland out of the game with a concussion. Josh Baker is ostensibly the next man in, but his fantasy value is minimal should he see extended action. Keller is one of the better backup options in standard leagues, with a muddy quarterback situation keeping him from being a reliable starter.
