Hunter will start at right tackle for the Jets at Pittsburgh on Sunday, filling in for the injured Damien Woody. It will mark the first time Hunter is starting as an offensive lineman after two starts as a tight end, including once this season.
The Jets, already struggling on offense, will likely lose right tackle Damien Woody for the remainder of the regular season.
Darrelle Revis is not on the practice field for the New York Jets. The All-Pro cornerback strained his left hamstring in the Jets’ 28-14 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday.
