Jets’ Buster Skrine out, Trumaine Johnson doubtful vs. Colts
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets’ secondary will be without a few key members against the Indianapolis Colts.
Cornerback Buster Skrine has been ruled out for Sunday with a concussion. Fellow cornerback Trumaine Johnson is listed Friday as doubtful with a quadriceps injury that sidelined him last Sunday against Denver.
Rookie Parry Nickerson could fill Skrine’s nickel spot, while Darryl Roberts and Rashard Robinson could see time in the base defense in Johnson’s place.
Safeties Marcus Maye (ankle/foot) and Doug Middleton (hamstring) are questionable.
Running back Isaiah Crowell, coming off rushing for a franchise-record 219 yards, is questionable with an ankle ailment. He was limited Friday after not practicing the previous two days.
Wide receiver Charone Peake (hamstring) is out, while linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (foot) is doubtful.
