Percy Harvin has sore ribs, still intends to play in Jets' season finale

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Wide receiver Percy Harvin, who has played the past two games with a third-degree ankle sprain, intends to play the New York Jets' final game of the season despite a painful rib-cartilage injury.

"It's a little sore, but I think I'm good enough to give it a go," Harvin said Friday, after practicing for the first time this week. "I was able to move around, catch a few balls. I ran a few routes. The biggest thing is pain tolerance. I just feel like I'm good enough to give it a try.

"I'm going in feeling I'm going to play."

Harvin said his ankle has improved to the point where he doesn't consider it an issue.

The Jets officially list Harvin as questionable for the Sunday game in Miami, and coach Rex Ryan said both Harvin and center Nick Mangold will likely be game-time decisions. Ryan said Mangold, who has a high ankle sprain, was very limited in practice on Friday. Mangold still seemed to be moving around gingerly, on the practice field or even just walking across the locker room.

The Jets were missing several other players from practice on Friday, mostly because of illness. Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson and Damon Harrison and safety Dawan Landry were all listed as questionable for Sunday.

Running back Chris Ivory, who was added to the injury report Wednesday because of a hamstring issue, was able to go through the full practice Friday and is probable to play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Safety Rontez Miles, who needed emergency surgery after he was kicked on the shin in practice last week, was not able to return in time to play the final game. Miles had just been promoted from the practice squad when he got hurt.

"That's tough," Ryan said. "He was full of energy. I don't know if anybody loves to play more than Rontez."
