Many New York Jets fans, myself included, expected the jets might have all three quarterbacks active today, but alas head coach Rex Ryan has decided to inactivate Greg McElroy. Dustin Keller will also be sitting, so we may see a Hayden Smith sighting or two in this afternoon's game.

New York Jets Injury Report
Doubtful: TE Dustin Keller (ankle), DT Damon Harrison (ankle)
Questionable: QB Tim Tebow (ribs), WR Stephen Hill (knee), NT Sione Pouha (back)
Probable: QB Mark Sanchez (back), RB Bilal Powell (shoulder), RB/KR Joe McKnight (ankle, ribs), FB Lex Hilliard (finger), WR/PR Jeremy Kerley (hamstring, heel), WR Chaz Schilens (knee), TE Jeff Cumberland (wrist), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), RG Brandon Moore (hip), LG Matt Slauson (knee), DT Mike DeVito (shin), NT Kenrick Ellis (knee, back), OLB Calvin Pace (shoulder), LB Ricky Sapp (ankle), ILB Bart Scott (toe), CB Aaron Berry (quadricep), S LaRon Landry (heel)
The Jets will have there entire compliment of running backs active so expect more ground and pound since Keller as well as Gates and White are all inactive for the overall receiving corps. If Sanchez struggles again we will have to see if Tebow comes in for more than just a few plays, may be a series or more, which would really open up quite a can of worms at quarterback considering sitting McElroy, who helped drive them to there only score last week.
