EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson is sidelined for the second straight game as he recovers from a sprained left knee.
Rookie wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is also inactive Sunday against the Buffalo Bills for the second straight game, also because of a sprained left knee. Both were injured in the Jets’ loss to New England two weeks ago.
The Bills have been ravaged by injuries, the latest being star running back Fred Jackson placed on injured reserve with a broken left leg. He was replaced by C.J. Spiller.
Buffalo is also without safety George Wilson (neck), tackle Demetrius Bell (shoulder), kicker Rian Lindell (shoulder) and wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder). Wide receivers Stevie Johnson (shoulder) and David Nelson (illness) and newly signed running back Tashard Choice are active.
