ATLANTA (AP) — Wide receivers Stephen Hill and Clyde Gates and tight end Kellen Winslow are active for the New York Jets against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Jets had previously announced that Santonio Holmes, who has foot and hamstring injuries, would not play Monday night. Gates and Winslow did not participate in Saturday’s practice due to knee injuries and had been listed as questionable. Hill was cleared this week after recovering from a concussion.
Jeremy Kerley is starting for Holmes. Darrin Wallis is starting for cornerback Dee Milliner (hamstring).
Falcons running back Stephen Jackson (hamstring) is missing his third straight game.
The Falcons also are without two more starters: left tackle Sam Baker (knee) and linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle). Wide receiver Roddy White is active though he continues to be slowed by an ankle sprain.
