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.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets activated cornerback Rashard Robinson and released safety J.J. Wilcox on Monday.
New York had until 4 p.m. EDT to activate or release Robinson, who returned to the team last week on a roster exemption following a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Robinson was arrested and charged with drug possession and carelessly driving in Morris County, New Jersey, last December. Police accused Robinson of having marijuana-laced candy in his car.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets wide receiver ArDarius Stewart has been suspended by the NFL without pay for the first two games of the regular season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Jets cornerback Rashard Robinson has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets player Rashard Robinson has been accused of possessing marijuana-laced candy.
Authorities say the 22-year-old NFL cornerback was pulled over in Morris County, New Jersey, last December and police found "THC infused Peanut Budda Buddah Candy" in Robinson's possession.
Robinson was arrested and charged with drug possession and carelessly driving a 2018 Mercedes Benz. Police say the car smelled like marijuana.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne and running back Matt Forte were among a handful of players who sat out practice with injuries.
Claiborne has been dealing with a sprained right foot since late October and says Wednesday that his performance against Denver last Sunday was embarrassing. He says he was limping throughout, but assured coaches he was OK because he didn't want to come out.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets backup cornerback Juston Burris has been ruled out against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday because of a concussion.
Burris was injured last Sunday against Carolina and did not practice all week while in the league's concussion protocol. Coach Todd Bowles says Rashard Robinson, Robert Nelson and rookie Derrick Jones could fill in at Burris' spot as New York's No. 4 cornerback behind Morris Claiborne, Buster Skrine and Darryl Roberts.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets running back Matt Forte will be a game-time decision to play against the Carolina Panthers because of his ailing right knee.
Forte returned to practice Friday on a limited basis, which marked slight progress after he had not practiced or played since running for a season-high 77 yards against Buffalo on Nov. 2.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Buffalo Bills newly acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will not play against the New York Jets.
Benjamin warmed up with quarterback Tyrod Taylor about two hours before kickoff Thursday night, but was among the Bills' inactives after being acquired from Carolina on Tuesday for third- and seventh-round draft picks.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Ahkello Witherspoon had a 4.4 GPA in high school and aspires to go to medical school once his football career is done.
But he wasn't a quick study when it came to adjusting to the 49ers.
The rookie cornerback was inactive the first four weeks of the season. After Tuesday's trade of Rashard Robinson to the Jets for a draft pick, Witherspoon is San Francisco's newest starter on defense.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets cornerback Buster Skrine has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will be available to play against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.
Skrine sat out last Sunday against Atlanta after being injured at Miami the previous week.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets got some help for their banged-up secondary at the NFL's trade deadline.
Cornerback Rashard Robinson was acquired Tuesday from the San Francisco 49ers for a fifth-round pick in next year's draft.
Robinson was a fourth-rounder last year who was a starter for San Francisco, but has been penalized often during his young NFL career. He had 61 tackles, two interceptions, 15 passes defensed, a forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 22 games with the 49ers.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have acquired cornerback Rashard Robinson from the San Francisco 49ers for a pick in next year's draft.
A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that New York traded a fifth-rounder to San Francisco on Tuesday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team announced specifics of the pick involved in the trade.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have signed cornerback Leon Hall to a one-year deal.
The 49ers placed cornerback Asa Jackson on injured reserve Tuesday with a hamstring injury to make room for Hall on the roster.
San Francisco was short-handed at cornerback with Jackson and Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) both hurt and starter Rashard Robinson leaving last week's game twice with cramps.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Colin Kaepernick knew how Chip Kelly was thinking.
Everyone on the San Francisco 49ers knew what the first-year head coach was thinking as the offense took the field with 3:10 left in the fourth quarter.
Score a touchdown, go for 2 — and end a 13-game losing streak.
"What else did we have to lose?" cornerback Rashard Robinson said.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is not on the active roster for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
That news means the Romo-or-Dak Prescott debate will be put off at least one more week. Prescott, a rookie who has led the Cowboys to a 7-1 record so far this season, has played well in Romo's absence, throwing for 2,020 yards, 12 touchdowns and only two interceptions.
Romo has been out since breaking a bone in his back during the preseason, but has been practicing.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick once again kneeled in protest during the national anthem.
Kaepernick was joined by teammates Eric Reid and Eli Harrold before Thursday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Several other 49ers players raised their fists during the anthem, including defensive backs Antoine Bethea, Jaquiski Tartt, Rashard Robinson, Chris Davis and Keith Reaser.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jimmie Ward is week-to-week with a quad strain, the team announced Tuesday. He left Sunday's loss to the Seahawks with the non-contact injury after covering a kickoff in the second quarter.
That likely leaves coordinator Jim O'Neil to find a replacement for one of the most valuable members of his secondary in time for a visit from Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys' eighth-ranked offense Sunday.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (5-11)
New faces: Coach Chip Kelly, OL Anthony Davis, WR Jeremy Kerley, WR Rod Streater, LG Zane Beadles, rookies DE DeForest Buckner, OL Joshua Garnett, CB Rashard Robinson.
Key losses: Coach Jim Tomsula, WR Anquan Boldin, G Alex Boone, DL Ian Williams, RB Reggie Bush, RG Jordan Devey, returner/RB Jarryd Hayne.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (5-11)
OPEN CAMP: July 31, Santa Clara, California
LAST YEAR: After Jim Harbaugh's departure to Michigan following 8-8 season and first missed playoffs in four years in late 2014, 49ers were even worse last season under first-year coach Jim Tomsula. Promoted from defensive line coaching spot, it was one-and-done before Chip Kelly was hired to replace him. General manager Trent Baalke, going into sixth season as GM and 12th with franchise, has...
