|Jets rule out four for Sunday against Patriots||10.20.12 at 5:31 pm ET|
FOXBORO — The Jets have ruled out all four players who were officially listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report.
Missing the game will be defensive linemen Kenrick Ellis (knee) and Sione Pouha (lower back), defensive back Eric Smith (knee) and running back Bilal Powell (shoulder).
Pouha was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday before being ruled out by the Jets on Saturday.
Wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder), running back Joe McKnight (ankle) and center Nick Mangold (ankle) are all questionable, with McKnight missing practice all week. Mangold and Gates were both limited on Thursday and Friday.
If McKnight can’t go, that leaves a void at back-up running back behind Shonn Greene. The possibility exists that Tim Tebow could serve as a back-up to Greene if McKnight is unavailable.
