The Jets may enter their matchup with the Steelers shorthanded on both sides of the ball, as the team released their final injury report before Sunday's game.
Demaryius Thomas and offensive lineman Tom Compton are listed as doubtful to play against Pittsburgh, while Jamal Adams, Quinnen Williams, Robby Anderson, Arthur Maulet, Brian Poole and Bilal Powell are questionable.
Thomas and Compton both did not participate in practice on Friday, and Adams and Williams were among a long list of players to practice in a limited role.
Thomas has been dealing with hamstring and knee issues, which led him to miss Week 15's Thursday Night Football matchup with the Ravens.
Compton played in every game this season for the Jets, including starting in the last five, but the tackle is dealing with a calf injury that could keep him out of the game.
Adams, who was just named to the Pro Bowl for a second season in a row, hasn't played since Week 13 after he sprained his ankle mid game. However, Adams said the chances of him playing this week "are very high."
Williams has had an up and down first season in the NFL between his on-field production and injuries--the rookie missed last week's game with a neck injury and sat out three games earlier this season with an ankle injury.
Adam Gase said earlier Friday that Anderson was sick with an illness, so it is possible he gets better over the next 48 hours. Maulet missed last game with a calf injury he suffered a week prior against the Bengals.
As for Powell and Poole, the two are dealing with ankle issues--with Poole also dealing with some lasting effects from a concussion he suffered a couple of weeks ago.
