Ryan confident Jets DL Pryce will return before end of season

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.

Pryce didn't practice all week after suffering the injury during the Jets' 10-6 loss to the Miami Dolphins last Sunday. Coach Rex Ryan said Friday he believes Pryce could return next week, when the Jets (9-4) play at Chicago.

"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."

Cornerback Darrelle Revis was limited in practice, but he is listed as probable with a sore right hamstring. Both Revis and Ryan said the All-Pro would be fine to play against the Steelers (10-3).

Safety James Ihedigbo is questionable while he recovers from a high ankle sprain and knee injury.

Right tackle Damien Woody (right knee) and safety Eric Smith (concussion) were ruled out earlier in the week.
