Jets' Harris questionable for opener, Jenkins doubtful

The Bengals begin the 2016 season in New York on 9/11

There will be much emotion and import crammed into the afternoon for all the fans who attend Sunday's Jets-Bengals season opener at MetLife Stadium.

Harris, who led the Jets in tackles previous year, is the only starter among the group.

NY Jets LB David Harris (shoulder) is "truly questionable" for Week 1, according to coach Todd Bowles. "We'll be determining that (Saturday) and right up until Sunday morning. He's going to have to work out and do some things, to show he can play". Speaking to reporters for the first time since the injury, Harris said he initially feared a broken collarbone.

Harris was injured against the New York Giants in the third preseason game.

Rookie linebacker Jordan Jenkins didn't practice for the second straight day because of a calf injury. He likely will be replaced at outside linebacker by Mike Catapano. "But the thing I like about the pros is there are 15 other games, and then some".

Jenkins, a third-round draft pick, was hurt during a training camp practice a few weeks ago when he took an awkward step. He hasn't missed a game since 2008, which means he has played through three presidential terms, basically.

Linebacker Bruce Carter (shoulder) and defensive end Leonard Williams (hip) were also limited.
