Game day injuries

Inactives for the New Orleans Saints: RB Mike Bell (strained MCL), T Jermon Bushrod (knee, ankle), DT Kendrick Clancy (knee), TE Darnell Dinkins (ankle), LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar (healthy), WR Rod Harper (healthy), CB Malcolm Jenkins (ankle). QB Chase Daniel is the emergency quarterback.

New York Jets: LB Ryan Fowler, DT Howard Green, QB Kevin O'Connell, DT Ropati Pitoitua, CB Lito Sheppard, G Matt Slauson, CB Donald Strickland. QB Erik Ainge is the emergency quarterback.

With Bushrod out at left tackle, Zach Strief will start at left tackle and be backed up by starting guard Carl Nicks. Should Nicks shift over to left tackle, and backup Jamar Nesbit would take his place. Strief is technically the third string left tackle for the Saints, behind Jammal Brown (out for season with sports hernia and hip surgery) and Bushrod.
