The New York Jets-Arizona Cardinals Week 5 injury report features a completely healthy Le’Veon Bell and several notable injuries.

Despite mass confusion at 1 Jets Drive Friday, the New York Jets’ Week 5 injury report is out, and it features promising information.

Running back Le’Veon Bell is a complete no-show, which means he’s ready to roll. Bell injured his hamstring (for real this time) in the Jets’ opening-week loss to the Buffalo Bills up in Orchard Park, NY.

The 28-year-old featured back has been on the shelf since exiting the Week 1 matchup. He, along with Blake Cashman, Jabari Zuniga and Vyncint Smith, was tagged with designated to return to practice from IR this week, which means they’re all in-line to play this Sunday. It also means the Jets roster needs some tweaking, as the numbers are too heavy.

Sam Darnold (shoulder), Mekhi Becton (shoulder) and Breshad Perriman (ankle) will miss the contest. Bless Austin (calf), Ashtyn Davis (groin), John Franklin-Myers (foot), Chris Hogan (ribs/knee) and Jordan Jenkins (shoulder/calf) are all currently listed as questionable.

Arizona comes into the game relatively healthy. It will be without linebacker Devon Kennard, whose calf injury already has him listed as out. Safety Chris Banjo (hamstring), tight end Darrell Daniels (thigh) and defensive lineman Jordan Phillips (illness) are all questionable.

The 0-4 New York Jets and 2-2 Arizona Cardinals—after a COVID-19-related scare thanks to a false-positive—are set to get Week 5 going Sunday, 1 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium. If Adam Gase wants his first win of the season, he’ll have to knock off Kliff Kingsbury, a guy whose name was in the mix for the then-vacant head coaching job following the 2018 campaign.
