EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott is not active for the team’s game against the Miami Dolphins because of a toe injury, ending an impressive consecutive games streak.
Scott has a hyperextended big toe on his right foot that has bothered him since the third game of the season. He didn’t practice all week after playing just nine defensive snaps against the New England Patriots last Sunday.
Scott, whose streak of 119 consecutive games dates to 2004 with Baltimore, is being replaced by rookie Demario Davis.
He’s struggled through a sub-par season and his performances have come under fire.
Jets running back-kick returner Joe McKnight (sprained ankle) and nose tackle Sione Po’uha (lower back) are active.
Miami cornerback Richard Marshall had previously been ruled out of his third straight game with a back injury.
How badly will the Jets miss Scott on Sunday? Sound off below…
