Green & White Set to Take On Red & White

Posted Dec 3, 2017

Jets Host Kansas City Chiefs This Afternoon at MetLife for First Time Since 2011

Updated 11:55 am ET

Tailback Matt Forté and guard Brian Winters, both listed as questionable on Friday, are both active and ready to go for the Jets against Kansas City this afternoon as the Chiefs play at MetLife Stadium against the Green & White for only the second time and the first time since 2011.

DL Muhammad Wilkerson, who has been playing through shoulder and foot injuries all season, is ready to roll after his first full week of full-go practices in 2½ months.

One Jets lineup change was announced before the game: Julian Stanford will start at ILB for Darron Lee, who has been deactivated. Stanford started two games for the Jets last season and six for Jacksonville as a rookie in 2012. Lee had started all 11 games this season and 20 in his two seasons in green and white.

Active for the Jets are CB Derrick Jones and LB Obum Gwacham. Jones, a sixth-round rookie, had been active for only one previous game, at Cleveland, when he got in for three special teams plays. Gwachum is in line to make his Jets debut after signing as a free agent Oct. 4 and spending the past seven games inactive.

The Jets' seven inactives for the game are:
■ QB Christian Hackenberg
■ CB Robert Nelson
■ CB Juston Burris
■ LB Freddie Bishop
■ LB Darron Lee
■ T Ben Ijalana
■ OL Jonotthan Harrison


The Chiefs' inactives list:
■ QB Tyler Bray
■ DB Eric Murray
■ RB Charcandrick West
■ LB Dee Ford
■ G Jordan Devey
■ OL Parker Ehinger
■ LB Tamba Hali

Jets head coach Todd Bowles' gameday captains are C Wes Johnson, T Kelvin Beachum, DL Leonard Williams and S Rontez Miles.

The Jets are wearing their green jerseys and white pants today. It's their fifth game this season and 15th under Bowles since 2015 that they've worn green/white, with their record in the previous 14 games at 7-7 overall, 6-6 at home.
