CB Marcus Williams Active for Dallas Tonight

Will Play for 1st Time in 3 Games as Jets Continue PO Push with Saturday Primetime Game


Updated 8:08 p.m. ET

It's not often that the Jets play on Saturday night, but here they are about to kick it off against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, around 8:26 p.m. ET tonight.

And the 8-5 Jets are in good health to start this final three-game push toward an AFC playoff berth. Fifteen players are on the injured list but all, including CB Marcus Williams, WR/PR Jeremy Kerley and LB Calvin Pace, were listed as probable to do battle with against the 4-9 Cowboys.

Williams, in fact, will be active for the first time in three games. S Dion Bailey will be inactive for the fifth straight game, and LB Taiwan Jones, signed Friday to the active roster to take the spot of WR Devin Smith (injured reserve), has also been deactivated.

The Jets' seven inactives for tonight's game:

■ QB Bryce Petty

■ CB Dexter McDougle

■ S Dion Bailey

■ LB Taiwan Jones

■ OL Dakota Dozier

■ T Ben Ijalana

■ LB Josh Martin

The Cowboys' inactives:

■ QB Tony Romo

■ WR Devin Street

■ CB Morris Claiborne

■ LB Rolando McClain

■ G Ronald Leary

■ T Chaz Green

■ TE Geoff Swaim

The Green &  White's only Saturday night games since 2004 have been road playoff affairs, which might be a good omen since they won those AFC Wild Card Games at San Diego in '04 and at Indianapolis in '10. The last Saturday night regular-season game was a home loss to New England in 2003. The last Saturday game of any kind was the Christmas Eve day game against the Giants in 2011.

The Jets are wearing green jerseys and white pants tonight. After wearing white jerseys in the season's first seven games, they've won green jerseys three times since (not including the Kelly green uniforms for the Thursday night game against the Bills) and have won all three at home, over Jacksonville, Miami and Tennessee last week.

Craig Wrolstad is the referee. It's his fourth regular-season Jets game since becoming stepping up to NFL referee status last year. The first three games: The '14 opening-day win vs. Oakland, the '14 season finale win at Miami, and this year's London win over the Dolphins.
