FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is questionable for the team's game at St. Louis with heel and hamstring injuries, but is expected to play against the Rams.

Coach Rex Ryan says Friday that Kerley, the team's leading receiver, did not practice and has been bothered all week by the heel and tightness in the hamstring. He has 35 catches and two scores, and is the Jets' primary punt returner.

Also questionable after being limited in practice but expected to play are running backs Joe McKnight (sprained right ankle) and Bilal Powell (concussion), linebacker Bart Scott (hyperextended right big toe) and nose tackle Sione Po'uha (back, ankle).

Wide receiver Stephen Hill returned to practice after missing two days with an illness. Linebacker Calvin Pace was excused for personal reasons, but will play.
