According to the official New York Jets Twitter feed, Dustin Keller has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Keller has been one of Mark Sanchez's favorite targets throughout his career but 2012 has been a struggle for the fifth year tight end. He has only recorded 28 receptions on the season.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News has provided the updates on Keller:

Keller had two receptions for 17 yards when he left the game.

If Keller is unable to return or this injury is serious and lingers after this game, it will be salt on the many wounds Jets' fans have being forced to watch this team's offense. At halftime, quarterback Mark Sanchez already had three interceptions and the Jets were trailing Arizona, 3-0.

Keller isn't having his best season and has battled injuries throughout the year, but he remains one of Sanchez's most reliable weapons in the passing game. With Santonio Holmes out for the season and a Jets' offense that has a dearth of weapons, Keller is vital.

In the seven games he's played coming into Sunday's matchup, Keller had 26 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns. He's hardly put up huge numbers, but then again, who on the Jets offense has?

It's little wonder his injury was met with tweets such as the humorous one posted by Mike Sielski of the Wall Street Journal:

It's been that sort of season for the Jets. Keep it here as updates on Keller's status become available.

Hit me up on Twitter—my tweets are way more entertaining than watching the Jets play.
