Buster Skrine cleared to play, Mo Claiborne questionable

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets will have at least one of their starting cornerbacks in the lineup on Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills.

Buster Skrine, who sat out last week with a concussion, was cleared on Wednesday, practiced fully (a walk-through) and is scheduled to play in the game. His last game was a nightmare -- three touchdowns allowed and three penalties.

His partner, Morris Claiborne, may not be available. The Jets' top corner, who sprained his left foot last Sunday, missed practice for the third straight day and is listed as questionable. Considering the nature of the injury and the short week, it's very possible he will be inactive. Darryl Roberts likely would start in his place, with Juston Burris (or perhaps newcomer Rashard Robinson) handling the No. 3 role.

As usual, defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (foot/shoulder) is questionable after another week of not practicing. Because of the quick turnaround, it's "going to be tough" for him to play, coach Todd Bowles said on Monday. Nevertheless, the Jets are hopeful he will give it a shot.

Right tackle Brent Qvale is expected to start for the second straight week, as Brandon Shell (neck) suffered a setback this week and is doubtful for the game. So is Terrence Brooks (hamstring), who plays on defense when they go to a four-safety package. Fullback Lawrence Thomas (concussion) has been ruled out.
