WR Stephen Hill out for New York Jets


It has been announced that wide receiver Stephen Hill will e absent from the Jets’ active line up for week 14. According to ESPN,

Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill (knee) is inactive for Sunday’s game against Oakland. Hill practiced fully on Friday and was originally listed as probable for the game, but was downgraded to questionable later that day. Sunday will be the first game he’s missed.

Hill has struggled in his sophomore campaign as he’s caught just one pass for 2 yards in his last four games. He has 24 catches for 342 yards and one touchdown on the season.

The Jets will take on the Oakland Raiders today, and aside from Hill being out, the Jets aren’t really suffering in the injury department. Oakland, however, is going to be hurting (no pun intended).

The rest of the (Jets’) inactive players are: quarterback David Garrard; linebacker Jermaine Cunningham; guard Will Campbell; tackle Ben Ijalana; tackle Oday Aboushi; and tight end Chris Pantale. There are no surprises on that list.

The Raiders, however, are not so injury free. They will be without running backs Darren McFadden, Rashad Jennings and Jeremy Stewart, as well as top receiver Denarius Moore. Safety Tyvon Branch is also inactive. Marcel Reece will start at running back.
