Injury report: Jets beat up on offensive front


The New York Jets need all hands on deck Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but they might be shorthanded on a critical part of the formation.

Offensive guard Willie Colon is listed as questionable with a calf injury, and center Nick Mangold is also questionable with a rib ailment. Mangold is more than likely a go, but there doesn't seem to be the same assurance with Colon.

That could mean the underachieving Vlad Ducasse could get the nod against an aggressive Rob Ryan-led defense.

As expected, receiver Santonio Holmes is out again, and tight end Jeff Cumberland is listed as questionable and had yet to be cleared to play as of Friday. Zach Sudfeld and Konrad Reuland will supplement Cumberland's absence with Kellen Winslow finishing up his suspension.

The Saints have a handful of important contributors as questionable, though the headliner in tight end Jimmy Graham will play.

Here's the full slate of injuries for both teams:


WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring).

G Willie Colon (calf), TE Jeff Cumberland (concussion), RB Alex Green (hamstring), C Nick Mangold (ribs).

S Antonio Allen (finger), WR Stephen Hill (foot), WR Joshua Cribbs (knee), CB Antonio Cromartie (hip), DT Kenrick Ellis (back), WR Jeremy Kerley (illness), LB Garrett McIntyre (knee), TE Konrad Reuland (knee), WR David Nelson (quadricep), WR Greg Salas (knee), CB Darrin Walls (shoulder), G Brian Winters (ankle).


G Jahri Evans (hip), S Malcolm Jenkins (knee), WR Marques Colston (knee), TE Jimmy Graham (foot), S Roman Harper (knee), DE Tom Johnson (hip), DE Cameron Jordan (ankle), S Kenny Vaccaro (concussion, back), DT Tyrunn Walker (knee).

LB David Hawthorne (ankle), DE Akiem Hicks (knee).
