No practice for DeVito, Ellis

The Jets returned to the practice field Wednesday, greeted by the strains of "Buffalo Soldier" blaring from the loudspeakers. All but three players participated -- DT Mike DeVito (sprained knee), DT Kenrick Ellis (sprained ankle) and CB Isaiah Trufant (pulled hamstring).

DeVito and Ellis did some light individual work with trainers at the start of practice, but they repaired to the weight room when the team broke up into positional drills. This seemingly doesn't bode well for DeVito, but he's expected to play Sunday against the Bills, Rex Ryan said Monday.

Ellis seems iffy and Trufant is unlikely to play. The Jets will need as many healthy DBs as possible because the Bills run a spread offense, with three- and four-wideout packages.
