Dustin Keller Injury: Jets TE Out Vs. Dolphins

Mark Sanchez and the Jets will again be without a key offensive weapon.


New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller is officially out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Keller was originally listed as questionable, as he continues to rehab from a hamstring injury he suffered during the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He did not practice at all this week.

The hamstring injury initially flared up during the preseason, and Keller re-aggravated it Week 1.

In his place, Jeff Cumberland will be the starter. Cumberland has five receptions for 46 yards so far this season.

Keller's presence will certainly be missed. Now in his fifth season, last week was the first time Keller missed a game for Jets. Last year, he caught 65 receptions for 815 yards and five touchdowns.

In other injury news, fullback John Conner and offensive tackle Dennis Landolt are also expected to miss Week 3's matchup with the Dolphins.
