BY AP • December 16, 2016

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets running back Matt Forte is questionable to play and will be a game-time decision against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night with a knee injury.

Forte tore the meniscus in his right knee early in New York's 23-17 overtime win at San Francisco last Sunday.

Starting cornerback Buster Skrine is out with a concussion. Rookie Juston Burris and Marcus Williams will likely see increased snaps.

Linebackers Mike Catapano (knee) and Lorenzo Mauldin (ankle) will also miss the game because of injuries. Defensive tackle Steve McLendon (hamstring) had already been ruled out by coach Todd Bowles on Thursday.

Right tackle Brent Qvale (hamstring) and running back Khiry Robinson (lower leg) are listed Friday as doubtful.

Wide receivers Brandon Marshall (knee, foot, back) and Quincy Enunwa (ribs), defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) and tight end Brandon Bostick (ankle) are questionable.
