It's official: Jeremy Kerley ruled out

The New York Jets confirmed the obvious Saturday, downgrading injured wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (dislocated elbow) to out for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. Previously, he was listed as doubtful.

Kerley, three weeks removed from the gruesome injury, returned to practice this week on a limited basis, but he practiced in the red no-contact jersey and didn't start catching passes with two hands until Friday.

On Friday, Kerley expressed his desire to play, but that was never a possibility. The question becomes whether he can return next week to face the Miami Dolphins.

As expected, linebacker Garrett McIntyre also was ruled out for Sunday.
