Kenrick Ellis active

Kenrick Ellis, a DT, could see time in his first NFL game tonight. Ellis, a rookie out of Hampton, has not yet been active for a Jets game. Part of the issue is special teams. Ellis doesn't play and the team needs utility players to be active unless they contribute significantly on offense or defense.

Jets inactives are QB Kevin O'Connell, WR Logan Payne (broken wrist), CB Donald Strickland (concussion), CB Isaiah Trufant (hamstring), C Colin Baxter and DE Ropati Pitoitua (knee).

The Dolphins won't dress RB Steve Slaton, FS Chris Clemons, LB Ikaika Alama-Francis, T Will Barker, G Ryan Cook, TE Will Yeatman and DE Phillip Merling.
