The Jets are tops in the NFL — when it comes to average ticket prices.
Team Marketing Report released its Fan Cost Index on Thursday, with the Jets having the highest average for non-premium tickets at $117.94. They beat out the rival Patriots by 10 cents.
The Jets lowered some ticket prices for this year, but the total remains much higher than the league average, which is $78.38 — a 2.5 percent increase from last season.
The Bears had the highest increase in average ticket prices at 9.2 percent, and rank fourth in the NFL at $110.91 per ticket. The Giants are third at $111.69.
The Browns have the lowest average per ticket at $54.20.
Peterson still unsure
Adrian Peterson, recovering from a surgically repaired left knee, said Thursday he has ‘‘somewhat’’ of a gut feeling about whether the Vikings will let him suit up Sunday against Jacksonville. Coach Leslie Frazier has said his star running back’s participation won’t be determined until right before the game. Peterson has increased his workload in practice, receiving between 25 and 35 carries . . . Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey is in a similar situation with his star running back, Maurice Jones-Drew, who recently ended a long holdout. Mularkey has said Jones-Drew will play Sunday, but in a third-down role.
Johnson held out
Stevie Johnson was held out of practice because of a groin injury, leaving the Bills’ top receiver’s status uncertain for Sunday when Buffalo visits the Jets. Coach Chan Gailey said Johnson could've practiced Thursday, but was held out as a precaution. Gailey said Johnson may practice Friday . . . Jets tight end Dustin Keller was limited at practice, but said his injured hamstring is ‘‘progressing well’’ and he should be ready to play Sunday . . . Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was held out of practice, but the plan is for him to practice Friday and play against Indianapolis Sunday . . . Colts coach Chuck Pagano said wide receiver Austin Collie is ‘‘full go’’ for Sunday as he recovers from a preseason concussion. Collie, however, would not say if he’s been fully cleared, saying ‘‘there is no definite timetable.’’ . . . Third-year linebacker Daryl Washington and the Cardinals agreed on a six-year extension. Terms were not disclosed.
Friday film premiere
The Cowboys get a little extra time to savor their season-opening victory Wednesday night. Coach Jason Garrett said the ‘‘funny week’’ meant the team wouldn’t get together until Friday to watch film of its 24-17 road victory over the Giants. The Cowboys don’t play again until Sept. 16 at Seattle . . . The federal judge who oversaw NFL labor matters for almost two decades is considering a collusion lawsuit against the league brought by the NFL Players Association. An attorney for each side argued the case before US District Judge David Doty Thursday in Minneapolis. Doty said he will rule on the issue later. The union is seeking billions of dollars in damages. It claims the NFL set a secret salary cap during the uncapped 2010 season to hold down salaries. The league insists the new CBA precludes such a suit.
