The New York Jets will be without their leading receiver on Sunday against the Ravens.
Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley was downgraded from doubtful to out due to an elbow injury, the Jets announced Saturday.
Kerley was ruled out along with backup linebacker Garrett McIntyre because of a knee injury.
Kerley has caught 28 passes for 347 yards and two touchdowns this season while being targeted 43 times.
The Jets have reduced the role of wide receiver Stephen Hill, who's been ineffective with just 23 catches for 340 yards and one touchdown despite being targeted a team-high 54 times.
The Jets are hoping to increase the involvement of speedy wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who's dealt with injuries this season. He has just 12 receptions, but has produced 314 yards for an average of 26.2 per reception.
