Ahead of this weekend's tilt with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the New York Jets are having big injury issues on the offensive side of the football. The game could be considered a must-win for the Jets -- who currently sit two games out of the final AFC playoff spot occupied by the Pittsburgh Steelers -- with just four games to go.

Tight end Dustin Keller and wide receiver Stephen Hill both sat out of the Jets' Wednesday practice with ankle and knee injuries respectively. Wide receiver Clyde Gates also sat out of practice Wednesday with a concussion.

Other offensive players were limited in practice on Wednesday. Quarterback Tim Tebow was limited with a rib injury while running back Joe McKnight took it easy with an ankle and rib injury. Guard Brandon Moore was also limited with a hip injury.

Just one defensive player was limited in Wednesday's practice. Defensive tackle Sione Po'uha was limited with a back injury.

Sunday's game with the Jacksonville Jaguars is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. kickoff on CBS.
