Jets Regular Season

McKnight and Ellis inactive against Kansas City

Admin - December 11, 2011

RB/KR Joe McKnight, who leads the league in kickoff returns, and rookie NT Kenrick Ellis are among inactives for today's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. McKnight was listed as "questionable" for this game after injuring his elbow last Sunday. Ellis is a healthy scratch. He did not play well last week and DT Ropati Pitoitua will start in place of DT Mike DeVito who's out due to a knee injury.

The rest of the Jets' inactives are OT Austin Howard, CB Ellis Lankster, WR Eron Riley and QB Kevin O'Connell.

Rookie RB Bilal Powell is expected to get some snaps in place of McKnight.
