Jets D-Linemen DeVito, Ellis Uncertain Against Bills
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Mike DeVito and Kenrick Ellis did not practice for the Jets Wednesday, and their availability for the team’s game at Buffalo on Sunday is in question.
DeVito, a starter at defensive end, missed the Jets’ last game before the bye-week break against San Diego with a knee injury. Coach Rex Ryan said on Monday he’d be “shocked” if DeVito didn’t play against the Bills, but says Wednesday that the team will know more Thursday if he can practice and isn’t experiencing soreness.
Ellis appears less likely to play — however, the rookie defensive tackle told Metro on Wednesday that he “should” be able to go.
“I’ll be ready to play and help the team. I should be able to play,” Ellis, who injured his left ankle in the 27-21 win over San Diego, told the paper. “It’s just up to the coaches and trainers then to decide if they think I’m ready and how they want to use me.”
Linebackers Calvin Pace (groin) and David Harris (ankle), center Nick Mangold (ankle) and defensive back Isaiah Trufant (hamstring) were limited but expected to play.
