Well the New York Jets thought there were going to have just about everyone back after coming off of there bye week, but both running back/kick returner Joe McKnight and nose tackle Kenrick Ellis did not make the trip to Seattle. The Jets should have back running back Bilal Powell, and wide receiver Clyde Gates will have the majority of return duties in McKnight's absence.

The somewhat surprising move was to deactivate linebacker Aaron Maybin in favor of the undrafted rookie Marcus Dowtin, and the returning from injury, Ricky Sapp. We will see if the Jets can generated any pass rush with them, Quinton Coples and the rest of the defense. Since Maybin has been utilized on so few plays, we would have preferred to see a one-two punch of Maybin and Sapp, make "Mayhem" on rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.
