FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Defensive lineman Trevor Pryce will not play in the New York Jets' Sunday game at Pittsburgh because of an injured hip.
"We can probably get him at 60 percent or, if we wait, we can get him at 100 percent to close out (the season)," Ryan said. "That's how we looked at it."
Pryce was signed in September after the Baltimore Ravens cut him, and he has three tackles and one sack, including a safety.
"He wants to play in the worst way," Ryan said. "I don't think he's really ready to do that."
Right tackle Damien Woody (right knee) and safety Eric Smith (concussion) were ruled out earlier in the week.
