Jets nearly at full strength on injury front

Aside from starting quarterback Zach Wilson missing his third straight game with the knee injury he suffered during the preseason, the Jets should be at full strength Sunday against the Bengals.

Several players were listed as questionable on the official injury report, but head coach Robert Saleh said he expects them all to play.

That list includes left tackle George Fant (knee), receiver Corey Davis (knee), safety Jordan Whitehead (calf), defensive end John Franklin-Myers (toe/quad), defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (foot) and tight end C.J Uzomah.

Uzomah will return against his former team after he missed the win over Cleveland last week with a hamstring issue.

“He gives you insight [against the Bengals] into what some thought processes and all that stuff, but at the end of the day, you watch a tape,” Saleh said. “You have your philosophy and there’s some stuff like that doesn’t apply to how we play.

“And you don’t want to reinvent the wheel based on little tidbits here and there, because then you still have to have players go execute something brand new if you’re asking them to do that, but there has been a few things, so hopefully it works out.”

Uzomah, who signed a three-year deal worth $24 million with the Jets as a free agent following the Bengals’ run to the Super Bowl last season, told The Post earlier this week that he “can’t miss this game.”

He had zero receptions or targets in a Week 1 loss to the Ravens in his team debut.

Former Jets center Nick Mangold was at the facility Friday as his name and banner were added to the team’s ring of honor lining their indoor practice field.

Saleh offered condolences on behalf of the organization before practice in the memory of Xavier McClain, a 16-year-old sophomore football player at Linden High School in New Jersey, who passed away Wednesday from head injuries sustained during a Sept. 9 game against Woodbridge.
