There's good news for the Jets offense as they prepare to battle the Dolphins at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium this afternoon. Rookie QB Sam Darnold and the offense will have both wideouts Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa to throw to.
Anderson sat out last week's game at Chicago with an ankle injury. Enunwa, who injured his ankle against Indianapolis, has missed two games. Both are active today, as is veteran WR Rishard Matthews, signed before the Bears game.
Also aiding the Green & White offense, second-year RB Elijah McGuire has been activated from injured reserve after injuring his foot on the first day of training camp.
On defense, DL Steve McLendon (ankle) was listed as questionable on Friday but is active for the 'Fins. And for the D and special teams, S Rontez Miles, who also has sat out since the summer with a knee injury, was activated off Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform. However, CB Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps) will be sidelined for his fifth straight game. Darryl Roberts will start in Johnson's place.
The Jets' seven-player inactive list today:
- CB Trumaine Johnson
- CB Derrick Jones
- LB Frankie Luvu
- LB Kevin Pierre-Louis
- G Dakota Dozier
- TE Neal Sterling
- DL Folorunso Fatukasi
- QB Ryan Tannehill
- LB Martrell Spaight
- C Wesley Johnson
- DE Jonathan Woodard
- T Sam Young
- TE A.J. Derby
- DE Charles Harris
The Jets are wearing white jerseys and green pants. The Dolphins traditionally have worn their white jerseys for hot home day games against their old AFL rivals, forcing the Jets to wear either their green jerseys or, in 2007, their Titans-throwback navy blue jerseys. But today the Jets will go with their white tops for a day game at Miami for only the second time since 2000. (The only other game was in white/green in 2016.)
Walt Coleman is the referee for his 23rd Jets game since 1995. Among the Jets games Coleman has refereed are the 2000 "Monday Night Miracle" and 2001 home comeback win over the Dolphins and the 2015 home win over Jacksonville.
