    Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress was limited at practice because of a cold, but expects to be fine for the first regular-season game against his former team, the Giants, on Saturday.

    Rookie wide receiver Jeremy Kerley didn't practice for the second straight day Thursday, also because of an illness, but coach Rex Ryan and special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff anticipate him playing and returning punts.

    Running back Joe McKnight, the NFL's leading kick returner, was limited as he recovers from a separated right shoulder and a hyperextended elbow on the same arm. His status for the game was uncertain.

    Guard Brandon Moore (hip) returned to practice but was limited, as were defensive back Marquice Cole, safety Eric Smith and defensive lineman Mike DeVito — all with knee ailments.
