FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? The much awaited return of Dustin Keller appears to be nearing as the Jets tight end looks likely to make his second appearance of the season this Sunday against the Colts ? and no one is more relieved about this than Keller himself.

Keller, who hasn?t played since the Week 1 blowout win over the Bills, has been besieged by a hamstring injury that has sidelined him for the last four weeks. The injury marks the first time in Keller?s five years in the league that he has missed a game, snapping his regular season games played streak at 65 games.

On Friday, Keller took a significant step forward in being able to play again.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? Jets rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill went straight to the sidelines after he came up lame on Sunday afternoon trying to chase down a deep ball from quarterback Mark Sanchez, never to step foot on the field for the rest of the Jets 23-20 overtime win in Miami.

On Monday, head coach Rex Ryan told the media that Hill was ?iffy? with a right hamstring injury, casting doubt on if the Jets will have a player who could be a red zone threat against the tough San Francisco defense. Hill spent Wednesday?s practice on the stationary bike and then working with the training staff on agility and stretching exercises.

?[The] hamstring is coming along but we?ll just get the final word from the coaches and the training staff later on,? Hill said.
