Bills vs. Jets 2013 injury report: New York expects Jeremy Kerley, Quinton Coples back

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Jets expect to have linebacker Quinton Coples and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley back on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. We've got the official injury report.

The New York Jets will be relatively healthy headed into their Week 3 matchup against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Linebacker Quinton Coples was listed as probable on the official injury report Friday, but he's expected to be active for the first time this season.

Coples is recovering from ankle surgery and is returning faster than previously anticipated. He joins wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, who is also returning from injury. Kerley suffered a concussion in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and had to miss the Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots. Kerley is a reliable target, something quarterback Geno Smith sorely needs.

The Bills, however, are a bit less healthy. Stephon Gilmore and Marquise Goodwin did not participate in practice, but appear to be getting closer. Cornerback Ron Brooks and kicker Dustin Hopkins also missed practice due to their injuries.

Doug Legursky participated, as did safety Jairus Byrd, but Legursky won't be able to go, and Byrd is listed officially as questionable. Byrd is the biggest name there, and is dealing with plantar fasciitis.
