Jets' Darron Lee: 'I'm confident in what I do'

FLORHAM PARK -- Darron Lee doesn’t buy the notion that he’s too small to play inside linebacker in the New York Jets 3-4 scheme.He doesn’t buy into theories that his struggles, and the entire defense’s failings, in the first two weeks of the season are about lack of effort or inferior skill level.

Final Jets injury report: They're optimistic that DE Mo Wilkerson (shoulder) will play. On Wednesday, Wilkerson said he's not concerned. Coach Todd Bowles seemed somewhat encouraged today. If TE Will Tye (illness) can't play, it'll create a bigger workload for Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who makes his season debut. That's not ideal; they'd like to bring him back in a modified role.

Dolphins favored in the Meadowlands

ESPN's FPI gives the Dolphins, who rank top-10 in offensive efficiency, a two-thirds chance of going on the road and beating their AFC East rivals, the Jets, who have the second-worst defensive efficiency.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets have ruled out RG Brian Winters, which means a backup will have to block Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh. It'll be Dakota Dozier or Brent Qvale, per Todd Bowles. DE Mo Wilkerson (shoulder) is questionable. He returned to practice (limited) and showed improvement. He's expected to play. They're hurting at tight end. Eric Tomlinson (elbow) is out, Will Tye (illness) is questionable and Jordan Leggett (knee) is doubtful. Good thing Austin Seferian-Jenkins is returning.
