Pete Kendall added to injury report

Jets guard Pete Kendall was added to the injury report late Wednesday afternoon.<p>

Kendall is listed as "probable." He wasn't on the original injury report submitted to the league earlier in the afternoon.

While talking to the media at his locker in the afternoon, Kendall did flex his injured knee a few times.

Kendall likely will start for the Jets against Seattle on Sunday. But remember Jets coach Herman Edwards admitted earlier this season that "probable" means 50-50 to him. Usually in the NFL "probable" means there is a 75 percent chance a player will play. Last week linebacker Victor Hobson was listed as "probable" with an ankle injury, but was inactive for the Pittsburgh game. There have been several players this year who were listed as "probable" during the week, and then didn't play on Sunday.

Hobson is also listed as "probable" with a high ankle sprain. It's unclear whether he will play this Sunday. The Jets aren't rushing him back because Mark Brown has done such a solid job in his place. As of last week Hobson was having no trouble running straight, but cutting was an issue.

The Seahawks have major injury problems on the defensive line. Their best pass rusher, defensive end Grant Wistrom, hurt his knee against Minnesota, and will miss a minimum of a month. Defensive tackles Rocky Bernard and Marcus Tubbs are also out.

The Seahawks best linebacker, Anthony Simmons, is out for the season. So they will take the field Sunday without four key players from their front seven. So expect the Jets running game to have a big game.
