FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets starting defensive tackle Steve McLendon and safety Calvin Pryor will sit out against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night because of injuries.
The team announced Saturday that rookie wide receiver Jalin Marshall (concussion) also will miss the game.
McLendon has a hamstring injury and could be replaced by Deon Simon. Pryor is still recovering from a concussion, and Rontez Miles will take his spot.
Center Nick Mangold was a full participant for the third straight day and is expected to start after missing four games with a sprained ankle.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (knee/foot) was also a full participant after sitting out the first two days of practice.
Linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin (ankle) is doubtful. Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle), right tackle Breno Giacomini (back, shoulder), cornerback Marcus Williams (ankle) and linebacker Bruce Carter (quadriceps) are questionable.
