Jets declared G Jacob Bender, CB Andre Dyson, S Eric Smith, FB Darian Barnes, DE Mike DeVito, TE Jason Pociask, and WR Chansi Stuckey inactive for Sunday's game. Marques Tuiasosopo is the third QB.

Bender will be replaced by a combo of Wade Smith and Adrien Clarke. Barnes is the team's starting fullback. That the Jets are sitting him down may indicate the team doesn't plan to use inside runs often against New England.
