Projecting the Jets' inactives for tomorrow: LB Darron Lee (injured), RT Brent Qvale (injured), QB Bryce Petty, QB Christian Hackenberg, WR Jeremy Butler, CB Nick Marshall, LB Victor Ochi. Tough call on DE Muhammad Wilkerson, who is questionable with an ankle injury. It wouldn't shock me if he's inactive, but they can carry him on the 46 without a problem. Todd Bowles said Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the No. 2 QB.

The Jets have placed LB Erin Henderson on the non-football injury/illness list. The team did not disclose the reason. It means they will be down two linebackers tomorrow, as rookie Darron Lee (ankle) already has been ruled out. The Jets also placed TE Braedon Bowman (torn ACL) on injured reserve. To replace them on the roster, the Jets signed LBs Victor Ochi and LB Julian Stanford from the practice squad.

Kay Felder has been placed into the league's concussion protocol, per the team. His status for opening night vs. NYK will be determined Tuesday morning. Cleveland could be mighty thin at point guard versus the Knicks.

Jenrry Mejia has resurfaced in the Dominican Winter League. Mejia tossed a scoreless relief inning with one walk and one strikeout and earned the win in Licey's 4-3 opening-day win against Escogido on Friday. Mejia was permanently suspended from MLB in February for a third positive PED test, but the suspension does not extend to winter leagues, including in his native Dominican Republic. Mejia is allowed to apply to commissioner Rob Manfred for reinstatement to MLB next February -- one year after the ban was imposed. Even if reinstated, which is no guarantee, he would have to sit out the 2017 season since the requirement is to be sidelined for a minimum of two years after a lifetime ban. Mejia's New York-based attorney announced in July an intention to sue MLB, but there was never a subsequent announcement of a filing.
