Forté, Winters Up as Jets Take On Broncos

Green & White, a Week After Beating KC, Are in Denver to Tackle 2nd Straight AFC West Foe


The Jets are angling today to win their sixth game of the season for the first time since 2015 and to move again to within one game of .500. And to do it they'll need to bounce their second straight AFC West foe and extend the Broncos' half-century-long losing streak to nine games at always formidable Sports Authority Field at Mile High this afternoon.

And the Green & White will take on the Broncs with almost all hands on deck. The only two players with questionable statuses after Friday's practice, RB Matt Forte (knee) and G Brian Winters (abdomen/ankle), are both up for today's game. The only injured player listed as out is LB/special-teamer Bruce Carter (groin).

WR Robby Anderson, who was limited at Thursday's practice with a hamstring tweak, practiced full Friday and is ready to roll with fellow 100-yard-receiving buddy Jermaine Kearse, who will attempt to reach 100 receiving yards together for the third straight game. And LB Darron Lee, who was deactivated for last week's home victory over Kansas City, is also active and ready to go.

The Jets' full seven-player inactive list for this game:
■ QB Christian Hackenberg
■ CB Derrick Jones
■ CB Jeremy Clark
■ LB Freddie Bishop
■ LB Bruce Carter
■ T Ben Ijalana
■ C Jonotthan Harrison

Head coach Todd Bowles' gameday captains are Winters, OL Brent Qvale, OLB Josh Martin and DL Mike Pennel.

The Jets are wearing white jerseys and green pants today. It's the fourth time this season and the 21st game under Bowles that the Jets have worn white/green. In the previous 20 games the Jets were 7-13, with the last win coming in OT at San Francisco last season. This year they've worn white/green at Buffalo, at Oakland and at Tampa Bay.

Tony Corrente is the referee. This is Corrente's 14th Jets game as ref since 2002. He presided over the Jets' playoff games against the Colts in 2002 and 2009 and the 2010 comeback win over the Broncos at what was then called Invesco Field at Mile High.
