'Unfortunate' mistakes costly to Jets -- Rex Ryan

Head coach Rex Ryan reacts to the Jets' 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans Monday night.


Dustin Keller, Stephen Hill inactive for Jets

The New York Jets will be missing a number of key offensive players when they take on Houston Texans Monday night.

In addition to Santonio Holmes, the Jets will also be without tight end Dustin Keller, wide receiver Stephen Hill and fullback John Conner. Keller will miss his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener. Hill, also out with an injured hamstring, will miss his second straight game.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Jets will be forced to play without nose tackle Sione Pouha. Pouha, who has been dealing with a back injury since training camp, will miss his second game of the season.

While the Jets will be missing a number of offensive weapons, Houston will also be without one of their key players. Backup running back Ben Tate is inactive with a toe injury. That will mean the Jets will likely see a heavier dose of Arian Foster. While Tate is out, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels are both active.

Here is the complete list of inactives for both teams:

FB - John Conner
WR - Stephen Hill
TE - Dustin Keller
QB - Greg McElroy
DT - Sione Pouha
CB - Darrelle Revis
OG - Caleb Schlauderaff

OG - Brandon Brooks
DB - Roc Carmichael
DB - Quintin Demps
OT - Andrew Gardner
DB - Brandon Harris
WR - Lestar Jean
RB - Ben Tate
