Jets’ Skrine Cleared; Claiborne, Wilkerson Questionable For Game Vs. Bills

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Jets cornerback Buster Skrine has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and will be available to play against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.

Skrine sat out last Sunday against Atlanta after being injured at Miami the previous week.

Morris Claiborne, the Jets’ other starting cornerback, is questionable because of a foot injury that knocked him out in the third quarter against the Falcons. Coach Todd Bowles has characterized it only as a “sore foot.” X-rays were negative and MRIs showed no structural damage.

The Jets acquired cornerback Rashard Robinson from San Francisco on Tuesday to provide depth, but it’s uncertain if he’ll play.

Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, foot) is questionable, but has played through his injuries.

Starting right tackle Brandon Shell (neck) and backup safety Terrence Brooks (hamstring) are doubtful. Fullback Lawrence Thomas (concussion) has been ruled out.
