Jets final injury report: They won't have WRs Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman on Sunday, but LG Alex Lewis returns. S Bradley McDougald will be replaced by rookie Ashtyn Davis. Looks like K Sergio Castillo will be called up from the practice squad again to replace Sam Ficken. They also could use a linebacker and receiver from the PS, but they'd have to trim someone from the 53 to make three call-ups.

Sounds like DC Gregg Williams is happy the Jets aren't shopping Quinnen Williams: "He's at the very top of our league as an interior guy ... He's only going to get better. I believe that. If he stays healthy, he's going to be really, really, really good and I'm glad he's here." As an interior DLM, Williams is T-1st in stops (23), T-2nd in run stuffs (9), 7th in sacks (3) and 16th in disruptions (13), per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Jets injury report: Jamison Crowder was able to do limited work — a positive step. Bradley McDougald and Breshad Perriman are unlikely to play this week.

Jets DE Henry Anderson called ex-teammate Le'Veon Bell a "difference maker ... dangerous ... a high-quality running back." But Anderson didn't want to get into Bell's ugly divorce from the Jets. Asked if he thinks Bell will have extra motivation on Sunday, Anderson said, "Yeah, I'm sure there will be a little bit extra there, but I don't want to look too much into that situation." He said he hopes Bell doesn't know their defensive calls and checks.

Well, at least Sam Darnold's hometown teams are winning championships. First the Lakers, now the Dodgers. "All for Kobe," said Darnold, who grew up idolizing Kobe Bryant. On the Dodgers, he said, "It was good to see our boys win that one. It's been a few years coming." It was their first World Series championship in Darnold's lifetime.

Biggest difference between the Dowell Loggains offense and the Adam Gase offense? Pre-snap motion. Under Loggains last week, the Jets used some form of motion on 25 of 51 snaps (49%), per ESPN Stats & Info. Loggains said it gave them "advantageous looks," especially in the run game. In six games with Gase calling plays, the Jets ranked last in motion — 103 out of 382 snaps (27%). Loggains hinted it was game plan-specific to Buffalo, which means they may not use it as much versus KC.

Jets injury update (pre-practice): WR Jamison Crowder (groin), who sat out last week, returns on a limited basis. He will try individual drills. Encouraging, but this doesn't mean he's a lock to play Sunday. WR Breshad Perriman remains in the concussion protocol. S Bradley McDougald (shoulder) won't practice. G Alex Lewis (shoulder) is practicing and trending toward a return. PK Sam Ficken (groin) returns to practice on a limited basis.

Jets injury report: Big question is Jamison Crowder, who may try to practice tomorrow. Sounds like Bradley McDougald won't play. Rookie Ashtyn Davis could make his starting debut vs the Chiefs. There are easier ways to break in.

Chris Herndon (13 catches) is having a disappointing year. "I feel like I've been used fairly," he said. "It's a team game. I can't sit after every game and be upset and mad and try to point fingers. This time last year I wasn't even on the field, so at this point, I'm honestly just thankful to be out there." With 138 routes run and 98 receiving yards, his yards/route ratio is a league low 0.7 among TEs, per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Frank Gore expects ex-Jet Le'Veon Bell to be "hyped up" on Sunday. He says Bell "can still play at a high level and I know he's going to want to definitely show it on Sunday." Gore's role was reduced last week as rookie La'Mical Perine saw more action. No complaints from Gore, who said, "When I get a fair chance, I can make things happen still."

Jets closing door on DT Williams trade chatter

Defensive tackle Quinnen Williams has attracted interest from other teams, as he did last year at the trade deadline, but the 0-7 Jets view him as a piece to their foundation.

Despite a historically bad performance in the second half, OC Dowell Loggains will remain the offensive playcaller for the second straight week, Adam Gase said. The Jets managed only 4 yards on Sunday, their fewest yards in a half in 40 years. But Gase said: "It wasn't really the play call in those situations. It was the right play call. We just have to finish the play differently." Why put it all on the players? Everyone should be accountable.

Jets injury update (pre-practice): WR Jamison Crowder (groin) won't practice, but they hope he can return tomorrow. S Bradley McDougald (shoulder) is being evaluated for what could be a serious injury. He's not expected to practice this week. This could open the door for rookie Ashtyn Davis. WR Breshad Perriman remains in the concussion protocol. PK Sam Ficken (groin) could possibly go on Friday. QB Sam Darnold (shoulder) is fine, but will be limited.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Adam Gase with a definitive statement on the Quinnen Williams trade speculation: "...He's going to be here. Those are false. I talked to Quinnen. I have not heard one thing from the front office about him being traded. I know Joe (Douglas) talked to Quinnen and talked to his agent. There's nothing to that. It's false." It makes no sense to trade Williams, 22, an emerging player with two years left on his contract, plus a fifth-year option.
