Will Breece Hall play against Texans? Reviewing the latest injury report ahead of Jets’ home game

As the New York Jets gear up to take on the Houston Texans, a cloud of injuries looms over their preparation. The recent setback of running back Breece Hall adds to the team’s challenges, amplifying uncertainties revealed in the injury report.

With several key players facing potential game-time decisions, the Jets, who declined to sign Carson Wentz, face a crucial evaluation of their roster’s readiness. The focus intensifies on whether Breece Hall, a significant offensive asset, will be fit to play, amid the impending faceoff between the Jets and the Texans.

Will Breece Hall play in Jets vs Texans?

Breece Hall remains limited in practice with an ankle injury leading up to Week 14 against the Texans. Despite being limited and appearing on the team’s injury report, there’s optimism that Hall will play against the Texans.

Jets coach Robert Saleh stated on Friday that Hall is dealing with an ankle issue, and the focus is on making him comfortable for gameday. 

“He’s dealing with an ankle, it’s just trying to get him comfortable,” Jets coach Robert Saleh explained Friday. “But we feel good about gameday.”

Breece Hall was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, and did not practice on Wednesday due to the ankle injury. On Thursday, Hall personally described his ankle as “fine” and expressed confidence that the injury won’t keep him out of the Texans game.

Even if the RB plays, there’s a chance that veteran Dalvin Cook could have an increased workload, especially considering his performance in the previous game.
