Sheldon Richardson Inactive for Houston

Bowles Decides to Keep DT on Sideline with His Hamstring Injury; Pryor, Powell Active


DT Sheldon Richardson has been deactivated for the Jets' game today at Houston.

Richardson has been hampered by a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. Head coach Todd Bowles said his availability for the Texans would be a gametime decision after warmups, and Bowles' call was to have Richardson sit this one out.

As expected, S Calvin Pryor (ankle) and RB Bilal Powell (ankle) are both active. Powell has sat out the past four games, Pryor the past three.

WR Quincy Enunwa, who was activated following his four-game NFL suspension, is active for this game, as is DE Mike Catapano, signed off the practice squad on Saturday and in line to make his Jets debut.

The Jets' full inactive list for the game:

■ QB Bryce Petty

■ WR Kenbrell Thompkins

■ CB Dee Milliner

■ S Dion Bailey

■ OL Dakota Dozier

■ T Ben Ijalana

■ DT Sheldon Richardson

The Jets' captains for today's game are WR Jeremy Kerley, CB Marcus Williams, DL Leger Douzable and Powell.

The Jets are wearing white jerseys and green pants today. They are 4-2 in white/green this season (but with losses in their last two, at New England and at Oakland).

The referee is John Parry. This is Parry's sixth Jets game as referee since 2007. The Jets have won the last three games he's officiated: vs. New England in 2009, at Washington in 11, and at Tennessee last year.
