New York Jets Friday Injury Report: Mike DeVito Doubtful

The New York Jets will be relatively healthy Sunday when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs as they continue trying to remain in the thick of the race for a playoff berth in the AFC.

Defensive tackle Mike DeVito remains doubtful with a knee injury, which could mean more snaps for rookie Kenrick Ellis.

Listed as questionable are defensive tackle Marcus Dixon (hip), running back/kick return Joe McKnight (elbow) and guard Brandon Moore (hip).

Kansas City quarterback Kyle Orton is doubtful with a right index finger suffered in his debut with the Chiefs last week.

Jets coach Rex Ryan had this to say about the possibility of Ellis having to play more:

“I think if his role is just at that nose tackle spot, I think he’ll do much better. But, again, you have some growing pains. There have been times when he’s looked absolutely terrific, so I’m excited,” Ryan said. “He works extremely hard, and that means he’s going to (ascend). I think he’s got a bright future. There is no doubt about it.”
