Jets WR Brandon Marshall Active for Chiefs Game

At LB, David Harris Will Start, Jordan Jenkins Will Make NFL Debut; Henderson & Catapano Inactive


On Friday, WR Brandon Marshall sounded a cautionary note after Jets practice regarding his sore knee and foot. "I'm not where I want to be," he said. "I've just got to make sure I'm not hurting the team when I'm out there."

Today the decision by Marshall, head coach Todd Bowles and the Jets doctors and trainers was that he is good to go. No. 15 will be on the field and starting as usual when the Jets kick it off against the Chiefs at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium at 4:25 p.m. ET.

Starting LB David Harris (shoulder), also listed as questionable for the game on Friday, is also active and set to make his 119th consecutive start in a streak that began late in the 2008 season.

And third-round rookie LB Jordan Jenkins, who practiced full all week after missing the last two preseason games and first two regular-season games with a calf injury, is active and will make his NFL debut. Mike Catapano, who started the first two games at OLB, has been deactivated.

First-round rookie LB Darron Lee will also start for Erin Henderson (foot), also questionable along with Marshall and Harris, who will be inactive.

The Jets' seven inactive players for today's game:

■ QB Christian Hackenberg

■ QB Bryce Petty

■ RB Troymaine Pope

■ CB Darryl Roberts

■ LB Mike Catapano

■ LB Erin Henderson

■ T Brandon Shell

And the Chiefs' inactives, including RB Jamaal Charles (knee), who coach Andy Reid and the KC medical team have determined isn't quite ready to return to action:

■ QB Tyler Bray

■ WR De'Anthony Thomas

■ RB Jamaal Charles

■ CB Kenneth Acker

■ T Jah Reid

■ OL Parker Ehringer

■ LB Sam Barrington

Head coach Todd Bowles has designated four players as gameday captains: DL Sheldon Richardson, WR Quincy Enunwa, T Brent Qvale and CB Marcus Williams.

The Jets are wearing their white jerseys and green pants today. It's the 11th time they've worn white/green under Bowles (5-5 record) and the eighth time on the road (3-4).

Bill Vinovich is the referee. This will be his eighth Jets game since becoming an NFL ref in 2004. Among the Jets games he officiated were the 26-13 win at Minnesota in 2006, the AFC Wild Card loss at New England later that season, and last year's 38-20 win over Miami at MetLife Stadium.
