The New York Jets’ Week 16 injury report features a Javelin Guidry injury that will probably keep him out against the Cleveland Browns.

The New York Jets may be forced to play their fourth-string slot cornerback against the Cleveland Browns this Sunday.

Rookie Javelin Guidry is currently dealing with a knee injury that will most likely keep him out of the Jets’ final home game of the season. With Brian Poole on IR and Arthur Maulet playing free safety, Guidry represented the Jets’ third option at the position.

It’s tough to know who Frank Bush will turn to without Guidry’s services.

If Guidry can’t go, an option to play slot corner against Baker Mayfield is Corey Ballentine. The 5-foot-11 corner is perhaps better suited to slide inside than rookie Lamar Jackson.

Elsewhere, veteran Frank Gore took his usual day of rest on Thursday. He’ll be good to go for the Week 16 tilt.

At the same position, rookie La’Mical Perine is back at practice after missing the last three games due to his IR designation. On Thursday, Gase said it’s too early to know if he’ll be activated prior to the game.

“We’ll get through this week and then we’ll just kind of figure out,” Gase said about Perine on his regularly-scheduled Thursday Zoom call. “When we get closer to Saturday, we’ll have a better idea.”

Jeff Smith (shoulder), Josh Andrews (shoulder), Jamison Crowder (calf/thigh), John Franklin-Myers (thigh), Ty Johnson (hip), Frankie Luvu (back), Denzel Mims (foot) and Nathan Shepherd (ankle) all practiced in full on Thursday in spite of their official injury designation.

The 1-13 New York Jets and 10-4 Cleveland Browns are scheduled to kick-off at 1 p.m. ET from MetLife Stadium this Sunday. Cleveland still has a chance to win the AFC North. A win against the Jets, coupled with a Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Indianapolis Colts, will set up a winner-take-all divisional championship game in Week 17.

Guidry could be the best UNDFA of 2020, Cager and Huff May have been more hyped, but Guidry looks like a keeper. Still looking to resign Poole, but Jets May have a backup plan. Like to see Cam Clarke at least in rotation, OG ‘s have been Turnstiles
