Here is a look at the final injury report for Sunday’s Week 6 game between the Jets and Colts at MetLife Stadium.

JETS

Out: WR Charone Peake (hamstring), DB Buster Skrine (concussion)

Doubtful: LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (foot), DB Trumaine Johnson (quad)

Questionable: RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle), DB Marcus Maye (ankle/foot), DB Doug Middleton (hamstring)

Did not practice: WR Charone Peake (hamstring), CB Trumaine Johnson (quad), CB Buster Skrine (concussion), ILB Kevin Pierre-Louis (foot), 

Limited participant: S Marcus Maye (ankle, foot), S Doug Middleton (hamstring), RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle)

Full participant: TE Neal Sterling (concussion), C Spencer Long (knee, finger), WR/RET Andre Roberts (elbow, foot), DL Foley Fatukasi (hamstring), DE Nathan Shepherd (shoulder), LT Kelvin Beachum (foot), WR Terrelle Pryor (groin), DE Leonard Williams (back) 

What it means: Skrine being ruled out is no surprise, given this is his fourth concussion since 2015. Barring something unforeseen, Johnson will be out for a second straight week, too, leaving the Jets without two of their top three cornerbacks.

Head coach Todd Bowles said the Jets will use their other five corners – Darryl Roberts, Parry Nickerson, Juston Burris, Rashard Robinson and Derrick Jones – to cover the holes. But expect the large majority of the work to go to Jones (who will play on the outside) and Nickerson (in the slot).

Peake’s absence, and the likelihood of Pierre-Louis’ absence, is a blow to the special teams; those are two of the Jets’ top players on that unit.

Maye will almost certainly play on Sunday; he’s been listed as questionable and played in both of the last two weeks.

Crowell and Middleton are a bit more certain, but have a decent chance to see the field, too. Middleton popped up on the injury report Thursday and spent the past two days limited, but did still practice. Crowell has slightly worse odds given he missed Wednesday and Thursday before finally touching the field Friday.

The best news for the Jets is that Williams was back to full participation on Friday. The Jets’ star defensive ense said Thursday’s absence came because he woke up with a sore back. But holding him out of practice was mostly a precaution and Williams was back to normal on Friday.

Bowles still did not rule out defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers coaching against the Colts. He said there’s been no update since he deemed there was a “small chance” Rodgers coaches back on Wednesday.

Major progress from Sam Darnold

COLTS

Out: DL Denico Autry, TE Jack Doyle, WR T.Y. Hilton, DB Clayton Geathers, DE Margus Hunt, RT Denzelle Good

What it means: The Colts will be without their top receiver in Hilton and will also be without their co-sack leader in Hunt. Those are two good breaks for the Jets. Hilton’s status is especially fortuitous given the Jets’ banged-up secondary. That’s one less big threat the decimated defensive backfield will have to deal with.

Colts head coach Frank Reich announced those six players would be out early on Friday, but the team’s full injury report has not yet been released.
