The absence of Revis is obviously a big hit for the defense, and it could affect the Jets' defensive scheme. The Jets play a lot of man coverage, and they may shy from that with Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson covering the Steelers' talented receivers Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown.
While the Steelers will likely look to attack on the ground, they will definitely be open for exploring a few more deep passes than they did last week against the Broncos.
Keller didn't factor much in the passing game in the Jets' opener, logging one catch for seven yards. He pulled his hamstring during the preseason and reports indicate he injured it again during practice this week.
He was on the run side in many of their running plays, and blocked fairly well - particularly in their Wildcat formation. Their other tight end, Jeff Cumberland, led on plenty of running plays, and had three catches for 33 yards on four targets.
The Jets signed TE Dedrick Epps to their active roster to fill Keller's spot.
