Jets' Harvin (ankle) uncertain vs. Titans

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Percy Harvin is planning to play.

The New York Jets wide receiver is dealing with a sprained left ankle that had him in a walking boot earlier in the week, but he was optimistic about his chances of suiting up against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

''I feel pretty good,'' Harvin said Wednesday. ''I definitely think I will be playing this week. Rehab has been going fairly well. It shouldn't be a problem.''

Harvin did not practice Wednesday, and coach Rex Ryan wasn't so sure he'd have the wide receiver available at Tennessee.

''Well, he didn't practice today, so it's kind of going to be a stretch for this week,'' Ryan said, ''but we'll see.''

The swelling in Harvin's ankle has decreased considerably since he was hurt late in the fourth quarter of New York's 30-24 overtime loss last Sunday at Minnesota. He was having a good game up to that point, catching six passes for 124 yards and a touchdown, his first since being acquired from Seattle in October.

''Once I knew it wasn't a high ankle sprain, I was able to start putting weight on it,'' Harvin said. ''So I knew the turnaround would be pretty quick.''

Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (turf toe) and safety Antonio Allen (hand) also didn't practice. Wilkerson was fitted with a special shoe to help him try to practice after he missed the past two games. Ryan said the pain in Allen's hand was so bad that he couldn't run during practice.

Kicker Nick Folk (right hip) was limited, but should be fine. Tight end Jace Amaro and linebacker Trevor Reilly were also limited with concussions. Amaro has missed the past two games while going through the NFL's protocol on head injuries.

''I think (Amaro) was running around pretty good, as was Reilly,'' Ryan said. ''Hopefully both those guys will be cleared to play.''
