Jets vs. Steelers Injury Report

The Jets defense will have to compete without two starters in defensive end John Abraham (groin) and linebacker Sam Cowart (thigh). The backups at those positions will have to step up with both players out. <BR><BR>

Offensively, the only injury listed is offensive tackle Kareem McKenzie. He is expected to play though as he is marked down as probable.

The Steelers have injury problems of their own as offensive tackle Marvel Smith is out with a neck injury. But although many players, such as Jerome Bettis, are suffering from minor injuries, they are all expected to play as they are probable.
