Muhammad Wilkerson Inactive for Jets-Ravens

David Harris Returns to Lineup but Mo Is Joined by Darron Lee, Brent Qvale on Sidelines Today


Updated, 12:01 p.m. ET

Another game and another front-line defensive player or two on the sidelines. For today's Jets-Ravens game at MetLife Stadium, DE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) will be inactive.

Wilkerson's deactivation comes after CB Darrelle Revis was inactive at Pittsburgh and LB David Harris sat out Arizona. Revis played all the way vs. the Cards and Harris is back from his hamstring.

But rookie LB Darron Lee (ankle), who started in Harris' place last week, is also inactive today, and with Erin Henderson being placed on Reserve/Non-Football-Injury/Illness on Saturday, inside 'backer will be manned by Harris and Bruce Carter, who put in 81 plays in the desert, with Julian Stanford, called up from the practice squad, in reserve.

Also starting at DL/OLB for Wilkerson will be LB Lorenzo Mauldin.

The Jets' full inactive list:

■ QB Christian Hackenberg

■ QB Bryce Petty

■ WR Jeremy Butler

■ LB Darron Lee

■ OL Brent Qvale

■ TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

■ DL Muhammad Wilkerson

The Ravens' inactives includes three starting LBs, Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley and Elvis Dumervil:

■ CB Shareece Wright

■ LB Terrell Suggs

■ LB C.J. Mosley

■ LB Elvis Dumervil

■ OL Marshal Yanda

■ T Ronnie Stanley

■ WR Steve Smith Sr.

Head coach Todd Bowles named three gameday captains for the Ravens: RB Matt Forte, Revis and S/ST Rontez Miles.

The Jets are wearing their green jerseys and green pants today. Counting the kelly green jerseys and pants the Jets wore for their Thursday night game last year, it's only the second time the Jets have been in green/green under Bowles.

Walt Anderson is the referee for his 15th Jets game. He presided over the "Win & We're In" victory over the Bengals to end the '09 regular season and also the Jets' first regular-season MetLife game, vs. the Ravens in the '10 opener.
