Morning Stream: Jets add depth to depleted secondary

Admin - September 23, 2009

As a clear indication that availability of CB Lito Sheppard and CB Donald Strickland for Sunday's game against the Titans is a question mark, the New York Jets activated CB Marquice Cole from the practice squad and waived TE Matthew Mulligan from the 53-man roster. Both Sheppard and Strickland suffered inuries in the game against the Patriots. Lito Sheppard had a strained quad, while Strickland tweaked his right ankle. Their statuses for Sunday's game are uncertain at this time.

Interestingly, Matthew Mulligan spent 2008 season on the Tennessee Titans practice squad. So, don't be surprised if the Titans re-sign him to gain some information on the Jets.

QB Mark Sanchez is just the fourth quarterback in the past 40 seasons to start and win his team’s first two games in his rookie year.

UPDATE (3:18PM ET): Neither Sheppard nor Strickland practiced today and head coach Rex Ryan is unsure whether they will be able to play against the Titans.
