Ivory, Giacomini Active, Powell Inactive for Bills

Bowles Names LBs Harris, Davis & Pace Captains for Today's 'Win & We're In' Game


The Jets' running attack for today's "playoff" game at Buffalo will have RB Chris Ivory and RT Breno Giacomini active and ready to roll, but RB Bilal Powell (ankle) has been deactivated by head coach Todd Bowles.

Ivory (knee) was limited at the last two practices of the week but was listed as "probable" for the game, which with a Jets win or tie would lift the Green & White into the AFC playoffs. Giacomini (ankle) was limited Friday and listed as questionable.

Powell, who averaged 80 yards of offense and scored three touchdowns in the past six games, sprained his ankle against the Patriots, didn't practice this week and was questionable for the Bills.

RB Stevan Ridley, coming off his most productive game as a Jet in last week's overtime triumph over the Patriots, is backing up Ivory. Tackle Ben Ijalana, who had been inactive for the first 15 games this year and has played in just three games the last three seasons, is active today behind Giacomini.

The Jets' full inactive list for the Bills:

■ QB Bryce Petty

■ CB Dee Milliner

■ RB Bilal Powell

■ S Dion Bailey

■ LB Taiwan Jones

■ OL Dakota Dozier

■ LB Josh Martin

Bowles has chosen three players as game captains: LBs David Harris, Demario Davis and Calvin Pace.

Walt Anderson is today's referee. This is Anderson's 14th Jets game since 2003 as referee. Among those games was the 2009 "Win And We're In" game at Meadowlands Stadium, the 37-0 triumph over the Bengals. Six years later to the day, Anderson will officiate another Jets "Win And We're In" game at Buffalo.
