News: Kiwanuka (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record reports.
Impact: Kiwanuka was only able to log two limited practices during the week due to knee issue, which simply wasn't enough to convince the coaching and training staffs of his health. Robert Ayers figures to step in to the starting role in his absence opposite Jason Pierre-Paul.
